Y’all know that America’s Next Top Model is coming back to the boobtube right? And it’s coming back to it’s original home – VH1. In less than a week – that is December 12, 2016 – 14 girls will be battling it out for the title of America’s Next Top Model. This time tho, Rita Ora will be spearheading the return of our favorite modeling show acting as host and one of the judges along with model Ashley Graham, Drew Elliot of Paper Magazine and celebrity stylist Law Roach. And don’t worry about Tyra not showing up at all – she’s actually serving as the show’s executive producer!

Let’s meet the contestants of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23!
Obviously, the show is back to an all-girls cast (thank goodness!) and they are all relatively tall (hallelujah!) so I wonder how this would figure out over the next few weeks with the judges determining who should win! Are we going to see more outrageous ANTM-patented model stunts? Will the return of the show give us back the Cycle 1-3 modelseque epicness? We shall see next week…

Who do you think has what it takes to win it all this early in the competition?
As some of you have known for some time now, Rita Ora will be hosting the return of America’ Next Top Model on VH1 this coming fall with an entirely new set of judges.
Rita Ora will be joined by model Ashley Graham who made that very refreshing Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover below.

Another one is Drew Elliott who’s the Chief Creative Officer at PAPER Communications and stylist Law Roach. I’m not exactly familiar with the two guys but I’m still excited for the return of ANTM!!! Yaasss!
So I’ve been waiting for a more definite confirmation before I post this one but it looks like it’s almost a sure thing that popstar Rita Ora will be hosting the come-back of the original ‘Top Model’ series, America’s Next Top Model. Obviously, Tyra Banks won’t be the host but she’s still going to be playing a big part on the show’s comeback as its executive producer.
With Tyra okay-ing the former X-Factor UK host as her replacement, it sure sounds like a very interesting Top Model season is before us as it returns to its original channel, VH1.
I’m still not sure about Rita hosting the show as I expected at least a really working supermodel to do the job (like Alessandra, Karolina or Coco) but I loved Rita during the X-Factor last year and she absolutely upstaged Cheryl when it comes to fashion as well. Hah! So for now, that works for me.
I’ve been a fan of this show since Adrianne Curry’s win and the show became one of my staple watch when it comes to reality TV shows! So, I was really fucking happy to hear that the show that we all thought has ended with Nyle Di Marco being its last winner is coming back on-air! Yaaaaaasssss!

The show is set to return with its 23rd Cycle but with a different host this time. No names has yet to be named but creator and host for the last 22 cycles Tyra Banks will be spearheading the show as its executive producer whilst the transfer from CW to VH1 is like a rebirth for the show since it was launched by the latter’s station when it started.
“After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn,” said the former supermodel. “I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host. I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”
So who’s excited for the return of America’s Next Top Model and who do you think should be the new host?
