Cycle 20 of America’s Next Top Model is almost here! Several of the features added during last year’s college edition will still be present this season, with the added excitement of (drum roll please…) male models!
Tyra Banks is excited for cycle 20 of ANTM, and those highly anticipated male models are only one of many reasons Tyra Banks thinks this season will be especially noteworthy. In a recent interview with Fault Magazine, the famous model and reality show host revealed her plans to continue including social media in the show’s format. “In addition to still having ANTM fans as the fourth judge; we’re doing some exciting new things that fans will see during judging that will really wow them.”
She’s keeping tight-lipped on exactly what these “exciting new things” are, but Tyra Banks does say that she’s planning on continuing to emphasize cutting edge trends in photography and technology. This means maintaining a modern spin in photo shoots while still capturing some of the tradition that has kept this show so popular ovr the years.
Just as social media scores will still be incorporated into the judging process, Tyra plans to keep her fans engaged with the use of her many unique catchphrases such as “smize” and “tooch.” And she’ll be adding a few more! During her interview, Tyra advised viewers to “Look out for the newest catch phrase, inspired by the 20th Cycle of America’s Next Top Model: the ‘booch’ or ‘boy touch.’”
Cycle 20 of America’s Next Top Model premieres on August 2nd at 8 pm EST. Do you plan to tune in for the first male/female season? Leave a comment and let us know!
