We've all gone through a long mourning period after Tyra Banks announced the conclusion of the 22 cycle legend known as America's Next Top Model. While it looked like our nation's beloved experiment in vapidity and glamour had come to an end, it was later announced that the show might see a second life with a new host.
Even more recently, an unnamed source hinted to The Sun that Rita Ora was going to be making a return to stateside television screens as the new arbiter of the competition. Their report says: "Not only will she see her profile boosted stateside but she will also see it rocket across the rest of the world as the show to pick an aspiring model is broadcast globally."
“Rita is in a dream world as she’s landed the ultimate gig," the source added. “She’ll be mixing her two passions of fashion and music and taking over from a TV institution in Tyra. Next Top Model bosses wanted to inject some freshness back into the format and they see Rita as the ideal new face."
Jezebel, meanwhile, speculates that said unnamed source is just "Rita Ora wearing a jewel-encrusted Bane mask with lemons on it," -- which is to say they're calling bullsh*t on the leak.
As for us? Well, why wouldn't Ms. Ora be the new face of ANTM? It's not like the job requires any kind of particular skill-set she doesn't have. And I just can't wait to hear what fake words she'll create as bizarre, schizophrenic justification for an arbitrary rubric pertaining to beauty! That's the whole point of the show, right?
