So, things got a little weird last night at the America's Next Top Model Cycle 19 premiere—in case you can't tell from the photo above of Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone, and Rob Evans in, yes, bed together.
And honestly, that's only the tip of the iceberg. Brace yourself, because the newest season of the long-running reality TV fashion competition is a wild one.
Last night, we headed to New York's Tribeca Grand Hotel, where we hung out with the show's brand-new cast and watched a special sneak preview of the first episode of Cycle 19, which is set to air on the CW August 24th at 8 p.m. ET.
We can't give away too much information just yet, but we can tell you this—Cycle 19 of ANTM is going to be hilarious! No, really. We were in fits of tears and laughter by the end of the screening.
In short, expect to see:
- A model who really, really, really loves Disney
- A model who speaks only in cat—this includes hand gestures
- A model who has the most extreme case of separation anxiety we've ever seen
- A model who, um, pops out her fake tooth
- Oh yeah, and Kelly Cutrone singing
The new ANTM cast greets industry insiders before the sneak preview. Banks revealed to us that Bryanboy cried after every girl went home. AW!
This cycle—um, can you believe it's the 19th one already—marks a bunch of ANTM firsts. Four new cast members joined the team: ab-tastic model Rob Evans, who's a judge; fashion blogger Bryanboy, who's the show's first-ever social media correspondent; Katy Perry's stylist Johnny Wujek, who's the new creative consultant; and Beyonce’s choreographer, Jonte, the movement coach.
If you noticed one judge is missing, that's because it's you. Yes, you. For the first time, America gets to vote which girl goes home! Excited yet?
If you haven't already, check out the teaser for the premiere:
Tune in to The CW tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET for the Cycle 19 premiere! And be sure to check back here, at StyleBistro, after the show. We'll be posting a recap. Woot!
We seriously can't wait to watch this cycle unfold! What about you? And who are some of your favorite ANTM models of all time? Let us know in the comments!
