America’s Next Top Model host, Tyra Banks is super excited about changes that will take place on the show starting next summer. Not only will the show celebrate its 20th anniversary, they are also going to add male models to the lineup!
According to People, Tyra Banks has been a long time advocate of adding male models to the mix but explains the decision wasn’t solely hers to make. “The male model idea has been around for five years,” she said. Everybody says, ‘Tyra you are the boss’ – but they don’t realize I have a boss.” She explained, “So I’ve had to ask my bosses for five years” to change up the show.
After years of stating her case, the network executives have finally agreed to give it a go starting next season, which will debut in the summer. Banks said, I think the change “has something to do with the 20th anniversary” of the show. Adding, “I think they were ready for a bang and a change.”
Banks went on to say, “The male and female models will live in the same house.” Can you imagine? It sounds like there are a lot of changes in store for next season and plenty of opportunity for cat fights and diva drama.
