America's Next Top Model

Tyra Banks Has More Twitter & Facebook Fans Than Any Other Supermodel

America's Next Top Model is trying to be all hip, cool and fancy with the new college-themed Cycle 19. We even have a blogger, BryanBoy, joining the team as “social media correspondent.” Since ANTM is Tyra Banks’s baby, it’s not too surprising to hear she has the biggest reach of today’s supermodels when it comes to social media. ranked top models based on their social media imprint (from Facebook and Twitter) and Tyra topped the list with 9,126,761 fans/friends/followers. That's a lot more than the next model on the list, Adriana Lima, who was credited with 2,310,529.

Here's their little lineup:

Tyra Banks: 9,126,761
Adriana Lima: 2,310,529
Heidi Klum: 2,191,447
Miranda Kerr: 1,838,532
Gisele Bündchen: 1,797,789
Cindy Crawford: 1,000,799

Check out the full list for more. Since Tyra is a mogul with her own show, it's good to see her working hard to connect with fans. But it's kind of surprising to see Project Runway host/judge Heidi Klum with so much less of a social media "imprint." (Remember to make it work, Heidi!)

Anyway, the next time we see one of Tyra's funky new Cinemagram tweets, instead of wondering if she has too much time on her hands, we'll salute her for being such a successful social butterfly.

Catch the premiere of America's Next Top Model Cycle 19: College Edition on Friday, August 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
