The mogul is coming back to your TV screen.

Former supermodel and America's Next Top Model host Tyra Banks is working on a new reality show that's sure to be addicting.

According to Variety, Banks, along with Rob Dyrdek and Rohan Oza, will be one of three judges on a Shark Tank-esque show called Funded. While Tyra probably won't be going undercover or teaching anyone to smize, she will be guiding young entrepreneurs as they duke it out for up to $1 million cash infusion.

Banks said in a statement, ''I have spent my life encouraging people to BYOB — Be Your Own Boss. Making everyday people’s dreams come true is what I live for. Funded is the life-changing type of television power project that gets me pumped. We will enlighten and entertain audiences big time and encourage our viewers to attack their most outrageous goals with fierce determination."

We can't wait!
