We'll spare you the obligatory kick-off of "Do you wanna be on top?" and just assure you that that time of year is here again; America's Next Top Model Cycle 18 casting calls begin tomorrow. Seriously. 18 cycles later. Here we are. So, if you're moved to fill out the crazy-long and absurdly intrusive questionnaire, take out a loan to buy a hot pair of Louboutins and a sexy bikini for your audition walk, and have your voice warmed up for a solid 12 hours of shrieking amongst similarly minded model-wannabes like yourself, check out TheCW.com for dates, locations, and the application.

We scoured the eligibility reqs for you, and, sadly, there were no glaring giveaways as to what the gimmick, if any, for Cycle 18 would be. Remember, Tyra hazarded that there would be "no more normal" cycles. It did reveal, however, that shooting would take place during October and November 2011. We haven't even seen the premiere of Cycle 17 All-Stars, and already Cycle 18 filming is just around the corner?! Ty-Ty does not rest, does she?

If you have no desire to be a Top Model (perhaps you're working towards a Nobel Prize, instead?), we highly suggest camping out at your local shopping mall on the day casting is in your town to gawk at the potential modeltestants, make predictions, and generally point and laugh.
