After firing longtime cast members Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander, "America's Next Top Model" has added two new faces to its line-ip. "Welcome the fab Johnny Wujek & fine Rob Evans to the CW's ANTM! Excited for some cuh-ray-zee challenges. Start practicin' ur booty tooch!" Tyra Banks broke the news on Twitter.
Wujek, perhaps mostly known as a stylist to Katy Perry and Shakira, will join in as a creative consultant who guides the models through their photo shoots. International male model Rob Evans will be the permanent third judge, joining Banks and Kelly Cutrone.
Wujek and Evans' casting is not the biggest change that will be siin in the upcoming 19th cycle though. Starting next season, audience will have control over who is staying and leaving the competition as Banks wrote on her Facebook page.
She wrote "Twice a week, starting Thursday May 24th you'll be able to use our Voting app to rank and sound off on all 13 models' best photo. Your input will shape the competition and you'll be able to see it play out in the upcoming season."
"America's Next Top Model will air in a new time slot next season, every Friday at 8 P.M. on The CW. The show is currently airing its 18th cycle with the finale set to air on Wednesday, May 23. Laura LaFrate and Sophie Sumner from Oxford, UK are the remaining finalists after Anneliese Dayes was eliminated on Wednesday.
