"The male model idea has been around for five years," said Banks.
Tyra Banks is excited about the upcoming 20th season of America’s Next Top Model—it’s set to include men!
“The male model idea has been around for five years,” Banks told People. “Everybody says, ‘Tyra you are the boss’–but they don’t know that I have a boss. So I’ve had to ask my bosses for five years [to change up the show]… the male and female models will live in the same house.”
The show’s newest judge, Rob Evans, seems to think adding male models to the mix will bring a new twist. “I think it’s cool they switched it to females and males because if it was all males, they aren’t as b*tchy as the women. So it wouldn’t be good TV.”
Banks has been busy as of late. Not only is she working to revamp ANTM, but she’s also moving ahead with plans to debut a comedy, Fivehead, about her awkward teen years.
