Nigel Barker you’ve been replaced — by the girl from 90210!
America’s Next Top Model is launching Cycle 19’s college edition on Friday, August 24. Tyra Banks revealed some of the celebrity guests to TV Guide, including singer Alicia Keys as a mentor in one episode. Also, Tyra said, "Tyler Perry comes on and gives the contestants an acting challenge. The winner of that acting challenge is actually going to be in a Tyler Perry movie."
OK, that’s actually a pretty cool prize. (Better than winning a trip to the Calgary stampede, right Sophie Sumner?)
ANTM is apparently aiming for a new “hip and edgy vibe,” so not only do we have two hot new male judges, we have a “social media correspondent” in blogger BryanBoy, a — gasp — new way to deliver Tyra Mail, and a new celeb guest photographer.
"Shenae Grimes from 90210 is the photographer on one of the photo shoots and actually took some really beautiful pictures," Tyra said. Nice. They should call Shannen Doherty next, just to give the original 90210 cast a spin.
Are you ready to smize for another season? The new format launches in two weeks.
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.
