ANTM Cycle 20: Meet The Cast & Season Premiere Pics

Typically, ANTM fans are treated to a new cycle every three to four months. With the ratings nowhere near as stellar as they once were, the CW decided to scale things back and only air it once a year. In the dog days of summer to boot. America’s Next Top Model finally returns to the airwaves for its 20th cycle starting on August 2. The catch-phrase for this cycle is “Who Will Dominate?” Hopefully for Tyra Banks’ sake, the ratings. Otherwise this could be the last go round.

Judges Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone, Bryanboy, and Rob Evans all return to the panel to discover fashion’s next big thing… yeah right. Johnny Wujek also booked another cycle as creative director for the photo shoots. For the first time ever, male models were allowed to compete for the crown. It’s about friggin’ time.

With guys now in the competition, the prizes were altered to reflect the new changes. A modeling contract with NEXT Model Management, a spread in Nylon magazine, a campaign with Guess and a US $100,000 cash prize are now the coveted prize package. Gone are campaigns with Nine West and Smashbox Cosmetics and having the honor as the face of the America’s Next Top Model perfume product “Dream Come True.” Check out all the hopefuls below. You know a guy is going to win this year. Just like when Sophie won the British Invasion Cycle. Check out the cast below, along with preview pics for the season premiere.

    This show jumped the shark long ago. Hopefully– and I’ve been an ANTM viewer since it first aired on UPN in 2003– this will be the final nail in the coffin. Tyra should have kept the talk show.

  • Rob

    Meh, not gonna even try. Tyra is nuts. Waiting for The Face to air a second season now. Meanwhile I’ll keep on with Britain’s Next top Model and Australia’s next top model where there are no Tyrants screwing things up.

  • stranded

    I just don’t like Tyra anymore. I always watched ANTM up to season 9 or 10, but by then i was already annoyed by Tyra and her antics. Her talk show made me really dislike her, along with these bizarre photo shoots that weren’t that good.

  • RFD

    Never watched it but with men on it now I am tempted! long overdue.

  • PaulyD

    I love this cycle, I loved College edition too but this one is even better, why isn’t it getting recapped? The ratings are better than the past 2 seasons.

  • ana perez

    I love cycle 20 !!!!!!! I send the best of luck to all the models 😀

  • Brittany

    Ugh why do I still watch this shit. I hate everyone except Cory. Ronald was so attractive but was sent home right away. I do love these recaps though. http://www.youtube.com/user/hearttopmodel05?feature=watch
