In a new Twitter video released this week, we’ve learned some exciting news about the upcoming season of “America’s Next Top Model,” which will see Tyra returning to her rightful place in the middle of the judge’s panel: aspiring contestants will no longer be hindered by an age limit.
We learned Mizz Banks would be back on the show last month, taking her throne back from Rita Ora, who served as hostess this past cycle as the show made it’s move to VH1.
“There have been 23 cycles of America’s Next Top Model. And every single cycle, we say, you have to be 27 years old or younger,” Tyra explains in her video. “You know what I hear all the time? ‘Tyra, come on! Why have an age limit?’ So you know what? I’m taking that age limit off. You wanna audition for *America’s Next Top Model? I don’t care how old you are honey, you just need to be able to smize and be open to learning how to work the runway – like a supermodel.”
