America's Next Top Model Picked Up at VH1 — Who Should Take Over as Host?

Attention, America’s Next Top Model fans: VH1 is giving you something to smize about.

The cable network announced Tuesday that it has picked up the reality series for a 14-episode season, nearly three months after it wrapped a 22-cycle run on The CW (and its original network, UPN).

Tyra Banks will return to executive-produce with longtime ANTM boss Ken Mok, but she will not be hosting the New York City-set cycle.

“After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn,” Banks said in a statement. “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!”

Are you psyched that ANTM will live on? And who do you think should replace Tyra as host? Drop a comment below with all of your thoughts.

    Bring back Nigel! Just to clarify, Nigel BARKER.

    • TJ says:

      I was just going to post the same thing.

      • Jojo Melton sweet says:

        Mr Jaye or at least before he got a little full of himself. Let me be clear by saying I would be full of myself too if I had half of his looks or one forth his creativity but I lost the love a little after the All Star cycle with his constant pushing against Cycle ones Shannons Christian values.

  2. Christopher says:

    Cindy Crawford as host or bust!

  3. Rob says:

    Well since Tyra’s headed to Celebrity Apprentice maybe Donald Trump could host ANTM? It’d be UUUUUGEEE.

  4. Scout says:

    No one. This show is past its prime and needs to go away.

  5. Guest says:

    An appearance on this show can only diminish your chances of becoming a model.

  6. Remy says:

    UPN lives!

  7. BB says:

    Get Janice Dickinson back! As host or as a judge, I don’t care in what role. She’s reality TV gold.

    • Jojo Melton sweet says:

      I cant stand that whackadoo Janice Dickinson, however, she is exactly what they need. Shes rude like Catrone, she has actually modeled for a very long time successfully,and has madea wealth of mistakes she could actually help the prospective models develope. Someone would need to keep her in check though. I just think Naomi Campbell would be????sacrilegious to potential Tyras everywhere!!

  8. Margaret says:

    I agree about Nigel, and would love to see Mr. Jay come back, but Tyra will still be producing so is it likely?? Whether it could work would depend on the host and the format. A host would be tricky: popular with potential viewers and contestants, understandable English accent, acting ability/experience, will commit to the show for more than one season, has a good working relationship with Tyra…. I thought of Iman but she may be too old? They could bring in one of the hosts from the international franchise like Heidi Klum I guess. I think Cindy Crawford could be a good choice. It will be interesting to see if this happens.

    • natechamp says:

      not bad but Heidi i suppose have her own part to do in beein the host of germany next top model and the show is a success so i more agree bringing cindy crawford as a host but she is old as well no shade

  9. Gerri says:

    Tyrese Gibson to host.
    Will it be a Boys and Girls season?

  10. I’d love to see Kelly Cutrone stay on. And yes, BRING BACK NIGEL.

  11. Shaneshia says:

    Bring back Nigel or Mr. Jay.

  12. JZ says:

    The host needs to a model so they can relate to the contestants and be somewhat sympathetic because she or he were once in their position. Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Christy Turlington? Would love to see Nigel back as well. Just happy it’s not ending.

  13. Glad the shows coming back,but it won’t be the same without Tyra as host

  14. Linzy says:

    Heidi Klum!

  15. John036 says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they went for a younger model to host, like Karlie Kloss

  16. LT says:

    A Kardashian is gonna jump at this chance…

    • Ana says:

      No way!!!!

    • Jess says:

      Dear god, no.

    • Jojo Melton sweet says:

      That would be Hell on Earth which we already have to avoid on E once a week during their show time and every store checkout and social media site. It’s unfair to lump them together but they are all atrocious and seem like lazy , nasty , representative s of the “Classic beautys” they claim to rep for! I do not want them rep for me except maybe the only one that has a job which is actually a Jenner. Just sayig

  17. Andrew says:

    Coco Rocha. She was a good mentor on The Face and she’s been on ANTM a few times.

    • Jess says:

      She’s not very nice. And they already have Kelly for nastiness.

    • Lily V says:

      I too want to see Coco Rocha as the new host. She would be brilliant!
      And people, please stop requesting Nigel Barker, he is not that great…
      Personally I enjoy not seeing him each episode :)

  18. bridyyc says:

    Iman. She has some experience, hosting Project Runway Canada. She doesn’t put up with bullcrap and will not hesitate to give feedback. Plus…she’s freakin IMAN!

  19. Jon says:

    Heidi, Coco, or Mr. Jay please.

  20. Taylor says:

    Karlie Kloss

  21. cepeda3 says:

    Christy Teigen!!!! SHe would be a funny and hyped host!!!

  22. Raelyn Wierzchowski says:

    ANTM needs another incredible supermodel host! Raelyn Wierzchowski should be in the cycle!

  23. Michael says:

    I believe Anne V. should be the host of ANTM, if you guys don’t know who she is, she’s from TV show that got cancelled– The FACE and was a judge on there. If not then Coco Rocha.

  24. Michael says:

    Nigel definitely needs to come back and Cindy Crawford is great choice and we all know Tyra Loves her some Cindy :)

  25. svetlana says:

    Veronica Webb or Adrianne Curry (1st winner)

  26. Gaby says:

    I think Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford or Chrissy Teigen 😊

  27. I really think the host should either be Jay Manuel or one of the past winners, like Eva Pigford.

  28. Altansas says:

    I can’t wait. I love ANTM

  29. Photoguy says:

    Janice Dickinson would be great. but for my money bring back miss Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker, and Mr J. I wish I could see season 23 on VH1 but evidently is not coming to St. Charles County Missouri through charter TV. This was a very good show very interesting to see all these young ladies and young men fighting for their career in modeling .

  30. Ana says:

    Claudia Schiffer or Miss J

  31. Cristiana says:

    I think they should bring back Rob Evans as a judge at least and maybe Karlie Kloss or Iman as host! I would also love for them to keep Miss J Alexander and Kelly Cutrone

  32. Darien says:

    One of the winners

  33. Darien says:

    One of the winners should

  34. Eric says:

    No one should replace Tyra. It will not be the same without her.

  35. Victoria says:

    No one could ever replace what Tyra brought to the show I have complete faith in her though that she will not let her fans down in picking a new host she will be missed but I wish her luck in the next chapter in her career

  36. Tania says:

    I think that Janice should definitely be the host she’s been a judge on the show before and I love how she tell you how it is. If not have a male host it it would be sow thing very different so why not.

  37. Guest says:

    Maybe try someone exotic like Project Runway Season 9 winner Anya Ayoung-Chee. She is a model, designer and former Miss Universe contestant 2008. Think outside the box folks.

  38. Lawrence says:

    Georgina Wilson

  39. Pat Ramirez says:

    I hope tyra finds a good host for this season, someone who is a certified supah model with a passion for fashion, who can really transform a wannabe model into a top model who can strut and pose in the international scene like NY, London, Milan, Paris etc. I’m looking forward for this season. =)

  40. C.c. Guttry says:

    I don’t even want to think about ANTM without Tyra! She IS ANTM! First they took away Nigel, Ms J, & Mr Jay. Then they gave us Kelly Cutron & Bryan Boy! True, we did get Ms J back and lost Bryan Boy but please don’t take Tyra see away! If she has to go Cindy Crawford would be (barely) acceptable but only if we get Nigel back. I’m sure Jay is too busy with his stuff to come back. If not, well, Nyle winning season 22 is a great way to go out.

  41. stacy fisher says:

    Nigel barker. Giselle. Marissa Miller. Jay Manuel. Miss J

  42. Kelyn says:

    Kimora Lee Simmons

  43. Rold Ortega says:

    Cara Delivingne or Gigi Hadid

  44. Sharon Conley says:

    Nigel Barker or Mr. J Manuel

  45. Breyona says:

    Please bring back Rob Evans

  46. angela banks says:

    SOOOOO HAPPPY…Ive ben watching since high school and even as an adult I still want it to go on…The FACE is just a copycat and not nearly as entertaining more like reality Tv…Will misss Tyra but, can’t wait !! Hope they do another short season…how can plus size models make this big entrance and no heed is given to shorter models…all in alll this is thehighlight off my afternoon

  47. tara says:

    Super happy ANTM is returning ! I would like to see White / Silver haired Jay return as Host.

  48. Mr know it all says:

    Naomi Campbell as the host .
    Kelly or Janice as a judge.
    Nigel as a judge.
    Mrs. Jay as a judge/ runway coach
    A guest judge every week
    And Mr. Jay back as Creative consultant.

    They all have passion for the fashion industry and are well experienced. They all aren’t afraid to give constructive criticism and they know the industry like it’s their last names.

  49. Sarah says:

    The show is incredible, maybe adding more diversity of models like Middle East or more petites or etc! Could make it more interesting!
