News of America’s Next Top Model’s untimely death may have been greatly exaggerated. The long-running reality show might not yet be headed to the television graveyard after all.

Just a couple weeks ago, The CW announced it was canceling ANTM. According to the network, Cycle 22 would be the last and a retrospective special was slated to air next year. Hardcore fans should be pleased to learn that Cycle 23 might become a reality.

Transgender models have appeared previously on global versions of the Top Model franchise, most notably Isis King on America’s Next Top Model Cycle 11 and ANTM: All Stars. None of them, however, have ever walked away with the title. That is, until now.

Over 640,000 Dutch viewers tuned in this week to witness Loiza Lamers make history. The 20-year-old stunner won Season 8 of Holland’s Next Top Model, becoming the first transgender from the Top Model franchise to do so. Loiza later took to Instagram to thank her fans.

“Dear all!!! Thank you for all your votes sweet comments and support. I am so very happy with everything I got to experience. Thanks thanks thanks!”

Born male named Lucas, Lamers underwent surgeries when she turned 18. When the former hairdresser entered the competition, no one knew of her transgender status. As the competition went on, Loiza decided to tell her story a few weeks before the live finale.

Check out her winning moment below, along with photos from the cycle’s photoshoots. Congrats to Loiza for making history.

The CW Finally Cancels America’s Next Top Model

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It’s deuces bitches!!! America’s Next Top Model is about to sashay down the runway for the very last time.

The CW announced the long-running modeling competition will end on December 4 when Cycle 22 crowns its final Top Model winner. Believe it or not, a world without smizing, booty tooching, Ty-overs and my personal favorite, Pot Ledom, is upon us.

“America’s Next Top Model was a successful franchise for two networks, first at UPN and then The CW, and it became not just a ratings hit, but a global pop culture phenomenon,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz in a statement. “I want to thank Tyra [Banks] and Ken [Mok] for all their years of success in establishing a show that was not just popular in the U.S., but all across the world”

ANTM first premiered on UPN in 2003. When UPN and The WB merged, the Tyra Banks show was the first show to air on The CW. With ANTM officially dunzo, Supernatural is the sole remaining show from the WB/UPN era.

Though no confirmed plans have been made, the network is reportedly considering a retrospective Top Model special in 2016. Given it’s mark on pop culture, I believe The CW should air one. Read Banks’ statement below.

Plenty of America’s Next Top Model purists don’t love the fact men are now included in the modeling competition. Personally, I love it. Especially this particular cycle. Tyra Banks has outdone herself with the quality of men. While my personal favorite is golden-haired Mikey Heverly, hearing impaired Nyle DiMarco is a close second. He’s sex on a stick.

Like many, I assumed he was straight. Imagine my surprise and delight, when the 26-year-old stunner came out (sorta). A German fan recently tweeted DiMarco if he was into “boys or girls?” DiMarco replied “fluid” and linked to an article entitled, “How Fluid Sexuality Fits into the LGBTQIA+ Spectrum.” Not that us mere mortals have a shot in hell snagging Nyle, but at least now it’s not impossible 😉

For those who don’t know what the sexy beast that is Nyle, check out plenty of pics below. If you’re not watching Cycle 22, make sure you do. The drama, quality of the photoshoots and contestants are on point this cycle. ANTM airs on Friday on The CW.

Who’s The Hottest Male Model On ANTM Cycle 22?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The decision to air America’s Next Top Model only once a year was a wise one. I actually look forward to hearing all of Tyra Banks’ new terms and watching her crazy antics. I never thought I’d think that, let alone admit it publicly.

With Cycle 22 just around the corner, The CW has officially introduced us to the men and women vying for the title. Will another male model take the title again, after Keith Carlos became the first guy to win last year?

My favorite guys based on first impression are Nyle, Dustin and Mikey, while Delanie, Hadassah and Lacey are the ladies I’m rooting for. Check out the 14 contestants below and weigh in on which ones are your favorites.

Just because we don’t recap America’s Next Top Model anymore (Rich has been extremely busy), doesn’t mean we’re not watching it. Rich and myself still love making fun of Tyra and the contestants’ antics each week. With Cycle 20 adding guys in the mix for the first time, I thought I’d ask our readers who they thought the hottest one is out of the bunch. To reiterate, the hottest and not the most modelesque. Those two don’t always go hand in hand in the fashion industry.

For myself, I can’t decide between Phil Sullivan or Mike Scocozza. Both are extremely sexy. I love Sullivan’s scruff and Scocozza’s goofy dimwitted look. What can I say, I like a dumb-looking guy 😉 Then there’s also Don Benjamin’s gorgeous eyes and Jeremy Rohmer’s hot body. Decisions, decisions. Check out pictures of all the guys below, minus Chris Schellenger since he was already eliminated. I tried to add pics from both the show and other miscellaneous shots. Be sure to cast your vote after inspecting the goods 😉

ANTM Cycle 20: Meet The Cast & Season Premiere Pics

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.

Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Tyrant did some stuff, some models cried, some new judges came on board, some girls cried some more, and a wannabe was given a relatively pointless title. Other than that, I have no idea. I took the Cycle off. That’s right. Tyrant’s punishment for the debacles that were Angelea’s force fed win slash re-shot ending in AllStars and then AzMarie’s brutal dismissal for refusing to booty touche in the British Invasion cycle and then firing Nigel, I just couldn’t do it anymore. After 17 Cycles of bitchy, fun, and loyal recaps, Tyrant finally wore me down with her nonsense. But I’m back! Fresh from months of blissful ANTM-free life. New boyfriend (woof!), new job (yay!), and the same snarky attitude towards the wannabes. And blessed be… we have boys and girls this year! There better be some chest hair.

Okay. Ready. I’m going to live type this reveal… clicking link now… waiting… oh GOOD LORD. There is some serious heroin crystal chic shit going on! Seriously. My first reactions:

  • A) Feed those boys!
  • B) There is way too much eyebrow trimming going on. Everywhere.
  • C) Give that blonde some sunscreen!
  • D) What’s with the emaciated boy faces! Not hot, not cute, certainly not woofy.
  • E) OMG somebody mashed Lluvy and Allison into one freaky model!

Okay… let’s take a look at these wannabes one by one.

Meet the cast & vote for your fave after the jump…
