Tyra Banks Is Back on Top as Host of America’s Next Top Model

Tyra Banks is back on top, as the host of America’s Next Top Model, VH1 has announced. The supermodel will once again host the model competition series, replacing its current host Rita Ora. The singer was brought on to helm the show, which is currently in its 23rd season, after Banks decided to step down last year. But she couldn’t stay away for long.

“Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise, and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize,” executive producer Ken Mok said in a statement. “We’d like to thank Rita Ora for being a great partner and total pro. She infused this new iteration of ANTM with passion and creativity and we wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors."
