Say hello to the boys as America’s Next Top Model welcomes eight men competing alongside eight women for the title. Premiering August 7, with a special 2-hour premiere episode on ETC, America’s Next Top Model: Guys and Girls looks to explore the similarities and differences that male and female models face in the pursuit of a career in fashion.
Hosted by Tyra Banks, the men and women will live under one roof as they meet fashion experts and celebrities to mentor and challenge them each week. With one model hopeful being eliminated each episode; emotions will be riding high as there will be more than enough opportunity for rivalry, flirtation and romance.
The winning model will ultimately get a career-launching prize package that includes a modeling contract with Next Model Management, a national ad campaign with GUESS, and a fashion feature in NYLON magazine.
This Cycle’s panel of judges joining Tyra is fashion public relations maven Kelly Cutrone and former boxer and international male supermodel Rob Evans. Also returning is famed stylist Johnny Wujekas photo shoot creative consultant.
Following the format introduced last season, viewers are able to voice out what they think of the hopefuls as top fashion blogger Bryanboy returns as the social media correspondent. Aside from highlighting the scores, comments and video messages from the viewers, Bryanboy will mentor the models on how to charm ANTM fans. Something that will come in handy as those who were previously eliminated will have the chance to return to the competition as fans vote to put their favorite model back in the running.
Unlike no season before it, America’s Next Top Model: Guys and Girls will be a season not to be missed by fans and fashionistas alike.
