When America’s Next Top Model sends its 23rd season down the runway this fall, its network won’t be the only thing different about it: Rita Ora is replacing Tyra Banks as host, our sister site Variety reports.
Upon the Poselympics’ move from The CW to VH1, Banks — an entrepreneurial mentor on NBC’s upcoming reality competition Funded — will remain an EP as well as pop up now and again throughout the season.
British singer-actress Ora has previously been a coach on the The Voice and a judge on The X-Factor in the UK. Her new ANTM judging panel will be made up of plus-size supermodel Ashley Graham, Paper Magazine‘s Drew Elliott and stylist Law Roach.
According to VH1, ANTM 2.0 (3.0?) will “reflect the modeling industry today.”
What do you think? Will you be tuning in? Or is ANTM without Banks like a photographer without a subject? Hit the comments!
