Tyra Banks poses with the new cast of judges and mentors at the America’s Next Top Model: College Edition Premiere Party. Kelly Cutrone, Bryanboy, Rob Evans and Johnny Wujek make up the latest incarnation of ANTM.
Tyra couldn’t have looked happier while wearing a form-fitting black Roberto Cavalli dress, and launching the new season of her popular fashion show and spending time with handsome Rob, whom she has reportedly been dating for several months.
The pair seemed smitten with each other and were even spotted leaving the venue together as an attentive Rob held Tyra’s hand.
As for all of the changes this season, this is what Tyra had to say about them.
“Cycle 19 of ‘America’s Next Top Model’ is beyond new,” Banks said. “We have total new judges and we have another new judge–our fourth judge is the home audience. So many people complained to me…so we finally listened to the audience and we’re letting them vote.”
“We’re also taking video messages from the fans, and the ones that stand out and are interesting, we actually play in the judging room,” she said. “It’s really bringing that audience into that judging room…Sometimes, the girls actually cry not because what one of the judges said but because what one of the audience members said.”
