Model hopefuls have had a long wait for the announcement, but it finally came. CW and America's Next Top Model have announced their Cycle 21 Casting Call schedule.
If it seems that the show is not casting as much as it used to, you're right, it's not. Last season the show announced that they would scale down production to only 1 cycle per year. Up until last year and for the decade prior, Top Model produced 2 seasons of the show every year.
The show has implemented another major change. No longer is it a women's only competition. This season, just like last, the show will be allowing male models to compete as well.
Actually, casting for the show has been a bit slow lately. Last cycle the show opened up casting to both men and women, leaving fewer spots open to female models and the prior 2 seasons were special editions. One was an all star edition that never had an open casting call and the other was a college edition that only allowed college students a shot at the show.
The casting calls for the show will begin in December and run all month as the shows producers travel city to city allowing potential models to meet with casting directors. The show will also be allowing models to email submissions as well.
Here is what they are looking for:
- Ladies who are at least 18 years old who are 5'6" tall.
- Men who are at least 18 years old who are at least 5'11" tall.
- All participants will need to be legal US residents.
- Models who have a flexible schedule this coming spring. The show will be filming February through March and those selected will need to relocate for those months.
