Tyra Banks to Return as Host of America’s Next Top Model

When Tyra Banks comes back, she really comes back.

Just a few days after the announcement that she’ll be taking over for Nick Cannon as the host of America’s Got Talent, VH1 revealed that Tyra Banks will also be returning to her throne at the head of America’s Next Top Model.

The model/actress/host/entrepreneur extraordinaire had taken a backseat for VH1’s reboot of her beloved reality series to be behind the camera as an executive producer instead of in front of it after 22 cycles. Rita Ora took over as host for one season (which ended on March 8), but as Tyra said in a tweet, she missed her ANTM baby.


“I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the intensity of the ANTM fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart,” Banks said in a statement. “After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn’t enough because ANTM is woven into my DNA.”
