Credit: Photo via Tyra Banks's Twitter Photo: Tyra Banks and a Friend

We thought last month's photo of Tyra Banks and new America's Next Top Model judge Rob Evans was the hottest thing we had ever seen — until this photo came along.

The ANTM host took to Twitter yesterday (August 1) to show off a pic of her and her male BFF. Tyra wrote, "One of my best friends in the entire world. Who do you cherish?" Aww, we're suddenly feeling emotional.

On top of getting all warm and fuzzy inside, we're also getting a little hot and bothered. Who on earth is this hottie friend and why has Tyra been hiding him all of these years? If you ask us, he'd be perfect on the judge's panel on Cycle 19. No, we don't know if he's into critiquing modeling, or even who he is, but just look at that face!

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.
