Hey there models… Do you wanna be on top? For 22 seasons of America’s Next Top Model Tyra Banks asked that very question and hundreds of thousands of hopefuls did their very best to answer it. Nevertheless, last October many aspiring young men and women were shocked to learn that the CW network would be bringing production to one of the longest running fashion shows to an end.
In the words of Janet Jackson some America’s Next Top Model fans wondered, “Is that the end?” With a very public goodbye from Tyra via social media and her new FABLife show underway; by all accounts it sure looked like it. Nevertheless, another network still saw an opportunity with the show and struck a deal with Executive Producer Ken Mok.
Ken Mok has secured a new deal with VH1 to ensure that the smize lives! However, the return of America’s Next Top Model has garnered a few key questions, with one being, where’s Tyra? Thus far, it is unclear if Banks or any of the other former judges/panel will be returning for the VH1 revamp. Nonetheless, all involved with the project are confident that the ANTM will experience continued success.
