The models are back for a fifth season of America’s Next Top Model and it’s going to be more riveting than the last.
Watch 33 contestants jet into Los Angeles for the opportunity to change their lives and gain a spot in the final 13.
Throughout the course of the show, the contestants will receive weekly challenges preparing them for the modelling world. Each week one girl will be eliminated.
They are all competing against each other to win a contract with CoverGirl cosmetics worth $100,000, a modelling contract with Ford models and a spread in Elle girl magazine.
Host and former supermodel, Tyra Banks and her judging panel will decide who the lucky girl is.
Joining her is Twiggy; the iconic supermodel from the 60’s who changed the fashion industry with her high fashion model look. In addition, runway coach J. Alexander joins photographer Nigel Barker and as always a guest judge will join the foursome each week.
This season, the girls will receive makeovers and will fly overseas for the last few weeks of the competition. They will be exposed to top designers, photographers and celebrities during the show.
Watch ordinary girls get transformed into fierce top models.
