America's Next Top Model: The secret seasons you didn't see

As you may have seen in the TVSA Premieres yesterday, Season 7 of America's Next Top Model started on the new FOX Life channel last night (5 October). It's airing Wednesdays to Fridays at 20h10 and it's a notable event for fans of the show.

It's one of only two seasons that have never aired in South Africa and the channel's airing them both. Seasons 7 and 8 haven't aired on any channel before and now FOX Life will be airing them back-to-back. Season 8 will follow Season 7 once it ends, on the same days, at the same time, starting on 3 November.

The reason we've never seen these seasons dates back to when the show aired on It was on the channel for six seasons and lost it when the show's American network went through an overhaul. UPN, the channel it originally aired on in the US, joined forces with The WB channel to become The CW, which sparked it's disappearance from our screens.

Two years later it re-emerged on Vuzu but from Season 9 in 2011, as the channel attempted to catch-up with the American broadcast time - a feat that was only accomplished last year when Vuzu Amp aired Season 22 three weeks after the US broadcast.

Seasons 7 and 8 remained unseen throughout which meant that there were two gaping holes in the story so now we'll finally see the full cycle of seasons.
