‘America’s Next Top Model’ cycle 21 – Meet the models

It’s just under a week to the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model: Guys and Girls” cycle 21, and we have our first look at the seven guys and seven girls who will be competing on the show.

This is the second cycle which included both guys and girls, and there’s sure to be a lot of drama in the house, as well as some possible hookups. If you remember last cycle, Marvin and Renee hooked up, so keep your eyes peeled for sparks flying between the models, and I’m not talking about only males and females, as we have two gay contestants, so there is a chance they could hook up as well. Then, there is sure to be some drama between Adam, who has had some alleged homophobic tendencies in the past and the two gay guys—Will and Romeo. Interesting.

As I reported previously, the premiere was moved from August 22 to August 18 at 9:00 p.m. This will be the new day for the show, with a repeat airing on Fri. nights at 9:00 p.m. for the first seven episodes. Starting on Oct. 3, the show will return to its previous airing date/time on Fri. nights at 9:00 p.m.

The judging panel has changed a bit. Rob Evans and BryanBoy will not be returning. Kelly Cutrone and of course, Tyra remain, and Miss J will be back this cycle as the third judge. Johnny Wujek is also not returning as creative consultant. Instead, we have renowned photographer Yu Tsai taking on that role this season.

The winner of cycle 21 will receive a modeling contract with Next Model Management, $100,000 national ad campaign with GUESS and a fashion feature in Nylon Magazine.
