It's battle of the sexes, as for the first time both females and males will compete for the chance to win a $100,000 contract with Guess and be crowned America's Next Top Model. ET asked judges Tyra Banks and Rob Evans about the long-running series' new era.
It was noted that female models tend to make more money than male models, and British male model Rob suggested some reasons. "Females shop more than males, so there's always a lot more work for a female model," said Rob. "And a female can bring a lot more to a picture than a male can." Tyra seemed surprised to hear him say that, turning to him with, “Really?” Do you think that may be a hint as to where Rob will lean on the mixed-gender season? And do you agree? Do you think a woman can bring a lot more to a photo than a man? We’ll be able to judge for ourselves when the models battle it out. And don’t forget to go to the official CW site to share your opinions and vote, so you don’t watch this cycle and wonder why Model X got a better social media response than Model Y.
