You wanna be on top?
Okay, so I think we have enough hindsight to admit that America’s Next Top Model was never a good show. The models were mediocre at best and the photoshoots were, in a word, hideous. That said, ANTM was also amazing and no amount of campy awfulness could stop me from watching every last episode. Which is why I am beyond thrilled that it’s making its triumphant return.
Here’s our first look at the reboot, which features Rita Ora as its host (I still think she’s a weird choice, but whatevs). Will Ora be able to deliver the same emotionally charged lectures as Tyra? I don’t think so. But there is something exciting about this trailer: these girls look legit. It seems as though the new ANTM will be more about fashion and modeling and less about in-house drama (though I hope there’s at least a little in-house drama). Why is DJ Khaled a guest? I don’t know, but I’m here for it.
Anyway, the trailer is long af and it’s goddamn glorious.
