Tyra Banks returns to ANTM

Tyra Banks has resumed her role as host of America’s Next Top Model.

While Rita Ora had some positive reviews for her brief stint in the judging chair, the original will be back when VH1 airs the next cycle of the model competition show.

Production will begin this summer, with the former supermodel and Ken Mok continuing as executive producers. Contestants and panelists will be named later.’

‘Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize,’ a VH1 spokesperson said.

Banks said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the fanbase, and wanted to return to host.

‘After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn’t enough because ANTM is woven into my DNA,’ she added.

Many fans suspected Banks might return after she sat in the central seat for the finale of the last cycle of the show.

Reaction to the return was positive.
