Tyra Banks got rid of ANTM mainstays J. Alexander, Jay Manuel, and Nigel Barker last month, and has been quickly reassembling her team as filming for the series’ 19th season is about to begin. Kelly Cutrone is being kept on as a judge after replacing Andre Leon Talley last season. Model Rob Evans will be a judge alongside Cutrone and Bryanboy, while stylist Johnny Wujek will be ANTM‘s creative consultant.
Cast changes have allegedly been due to a push for social media. Increased social media action = higher ratings? Maybe. Cutrone and Bryanboy have a combined 400,000 Twitter followers, and it will be interesting to see if that does anything for ANTM‘s viewership. More importantly, will we finally learn more about the somewhat mysterious Bryanboy? Guess we’ll just have to tune in.
