America’s Next Top Model 2016 has been officially confirmed to be arriving soon. Although the air date for the highly anticipated reality series remains unknown, fans can take comfort in knowing that the show is bound to start at any time.
VH1 is expected to announce the air date of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23 one of these days. One thing remains sure now. That is the fact that the reality competition is fated to have a “fierce-a-fied rebirth” on its new network.
As for its cast, America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23 will introduce a new host, Rita Ora. The 25-year-old Brit singer-actress will replace Tyra Banks on the show. Ora will be working with a panel of judges.
The panel for America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23 includes Paper magazine’s chief creative officer Drew Elliot and Ashley Graham, who is known to be a plus-size model. Fans can also expect celebrity stylist Law Roach to share helpful insights. Graham just got herself an edgy makeover recently. It looks like her new bob is some sort of preparation before we finally see her on the show as one of the judges.
According to reports, the original host ditched the hosting gig for the 23rd cycle of the show. The only reason she had to was because she needs to perform her task as a professor at Stanford University. The 42-year-old model, TV presenter and entrepreneur is going to be busy as a guest professor in a class related to personal branding. Banks was a former host of the reality show. Although she won?t be back to host America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23, she will continue to support the show as an executive producer.
In addition to its new network and host, the upcoming reboot of America’s Next Top Model will also be shot on a new location. It will be in New York City instead of Los Angeles. Filming has in fact already started in Manhattan. Ora and the new panel of judges are reportedly done with the show’s first elimination.
America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23 will show a total of 14 episodes. Fans can expect the highly anticipated show to premiere this fall.
