Miss J. Alexander! That’s right, the runway diva extraordinaire is making his epic return to America’s Next Top Model
for Cycle 21, which will air this summer.
“His name says it all. I’ve missed Miss J. and am elated he’s back,” Tyra Banks said in a press release. “I know Top Model fans will rejoice!” And rejoice we shall!
“We are thrilled to have Miss J. reprising his role as runway coach and judge extraordinaire. Miss J. has been a part of the top model family since Cycle 1 and we are thrilled he's come home,” executive producer Ken Mok added. But in a shocking turn, Miss J. isn’t the only addition to the upcoming new cycle!
“We are also excited to have world renowned photographer Yu Tsai joining Top Model this season as creative consultant to the models — he's one of the world's most well regarded photographers, and his work speaks for itself.”
So with Miss J. returning to be a judge alongside Tyra and PR maven Kelly “Cut-Throat” Cutrone, and Yu Tsai — who is responsible for launching Kate Upton’s career — coming on as creative consultant, that may mean that we’ve seen the last of Rob Evans, Bryanboy, and Johnny Wujek, though no official word has been given.
The second “Guys and Girls” edition will feature seven men and seven women smizing it out to see who will be on top, taking home all of the amazing prizes, which include a $100,000 national ad campaign with Guess, a spread in Nylon, and the coveted contract with Next Model Management.
We can’t wait for this cycle to start!
