|Tyra Banks holding her Business Degree that she earned from Harvard University|
The girls in cycle 19 all are students (yes you read that right THEY ARE STUDENTS). Tyra recently earned a business degree from Harvard University, and while being a student herself, she noticed around her college campus that their were some very fierce girls with modeling potential, and this was her inspiration for the COLLEGE EDITION cycle of ANTM. Cycle 19 premieres August 24, 2012 at 9/8c.
The prizes for this cycle have change. The old prizes were
- A guest correspondent placement with the Extra news magazine.
- A fashion spread in Vogue Italia, and both the cover and a spread in Beauty In Vogue.
- Production of a music composition that wil be performed by the winner that will then be released as a record single by CBS Records. and
- A US$100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics
The new prizes are completely different
- A modeling contract with LA Models & NY Model Management.
- The face of the America’s Next Top Model perfume product "Dream Come True".
- A spread in Nylon magazine.
- Campaigns with Nine West and Smashbox Cosmetics.
- A US$100,000 cash prize
I personally like the old prizes. I would love to be in VOGUE magazine and have the opportunity to be a COVERGIRL. The new contracts with Nylon and NINE WEST cannot even compete with vogue and covergirl. There are also some more changes in this new cycle to include the dismissal of some of our favorite members of the ANTM CAST. Nigel Barker, J Alexander, and J Manuel will no longer be on the show.
|NIGEL BARKER, J ALEXANDER AND JAY MANUEL|
They are being replaced by Filipino fashion blogger Bryanboy and Johnny Wujek who will be the new creative director of photoshoots.
I truly can say that I am going to miss Nigel , Jay Manuel and the diva Miss J Alexander. The show will definitely not be the same without these 3, hopefully the newbies can live up to the legacy that was left behind.
WHO IS GOING TO BE THE RUNWAY COACH NOW THAT J ALEXANDER IS GONE ????
Cycle 19 is full of surprises and one of them is the British Model ROB EVANS. Rob is replacing Nigel and I have no complaints. He reminds me of Nigel, they both are hot and have BRITISH accents. I cant wait to see Rob on the judging panel he will be a great addition to the show.
|Tyra is 38 and he's 24 (there's a rumor going around that they are dating ... hmmm get it girl..lol|
|Panel will be interesting|
|I can't wait to see what the American viewers had to say about the girls.|
|The entire new cast (Tyra, Kelly, Rob, Bryan, and Johnny) Kelly looks depressing.|

below is a video of Tyra talking about her newest season of ANTM
I am very excited for cycle 19 of ANTM, I have watched the show since season 1 and have never missed a season. What has truly sadden me though is that the show has been moved to Friday night. This happened because the show's ratings have dropped therefore the show can not be on one of the main weekdays such as Wednesday or Thursday. I think this Friday move will hurt the show, because less people are home on a Friday night. I will definitely have to adjust my Fridays and make them work around ANTM because I will definitely be supporting my girl Tyra. I hope you all watch and support the show as well
Fierce and Love
