Fans, breathe a sigh of relief: America’s Next Top Model has new life after all.
Following its cancellation on the CW back in October after 22 seasons, the series has been picked up by VH1. The resurrection will consist of 14 episodes filmed in NYC. But there’s a catch: Tyra Banks, who just welcomed a newborn son, will not reprise her hosting duties.
For those already feeling that it’s just not ANTM without Tyra, don’t worry. She’ll be heavily involved behind the camera as an executive producer. Still, the question remains: can anyone fill the shoes of Tyra Banks, and who will it be?
Social media has offered a few options, and we’ve compiled some of our own as well.
Chrissy’s lovable personality has captured all of our hearts and made her a popular figure in pop culture. Although her marriage to John Legend is of great interest, don’t forget that she has her own career. Most recently, she was featured in the coveted Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated.
The young star has worked her way up to become a sensation within the last year. We love Zendaya, and who wouldn’t want to see her fierce outfits on our TVs every week as the host of ANTM? ‘Daya could be the touch of youth and flavor that a show with 22 seasons under its belt may need.
We can’t get over her stunning features, but we rarely get a glimpse into Chanel’s personal side. It’d be interesting to watch her interact with contestants in the role of host. Plus, she has “smize” down pat.
Take it from us, there’s just no one like Kimora Lee Simmons. As host of ANTM, you could count on some epic moments to come from Ms. Simmons every week. Plus, the former supermodel (and now designer) knows her stuff when it comes to the industry.
We know it’s a long shot, and she already has a little show of her own, but there’s no doubt that as the host of ANTM, Kendall Jenner could take the show to new heights. Let’s face it, Kardashians bring in the viewers and Kendall’s one of the hottest models in the game right now.
