The new ANTM is gonna be everything! It’s nearly the premiere of cycle 23 of America’s Next Top Model with it’s new network (hi!), new host Rita Ora, new panel of judges (Ashley Graham, Drew Elliott, Law Roach), and a new bevy of beautiful aspiring models. If the supertrailer is any indication, the new ANTM is gonna be lit, combining all the drama and competitiveness of the original series while evolving with the times and changes to the industry.
Show creator, executive producer, and former host Tyra Banks pops up to let the girls know, “I’m not looking for a traditional model. And I’m not looking for a social media model. I’m looking for both.” We are so here for it. Queen Tyra won’t be the only special guest showing up though. America’s Next Top Model will also welcome Chanel Iman, Zendaya, DJ Khaled, Jason Derulo, Tinashe, French Montana, and Amber Rose, among others.
