After 19 cycles, it's finally time for some equal opportunity modeling on The CW.
The network announced today that Tyra Banks' reality hit America's Next Top Model has officially been picked up for its 20th (yes, 20th!) cycle.
And for the first time ever, male models will be allowed to compete in the competition!
America's Next Top Model's 20th cycle will debut in summer 2013 (an exact premiere date has not yet been set), which is part of the CW's on-going strategy to increase the amount of original summer programming.
Viewers can expect some juicy drama from the new season as the male and female models will be living together in a house. (Hookups? Yes, please!) Viewers will also have the chance to vote for their favorite models through social media sites.
America's Next Top Model is currently in the middle of its 19th cycle, which features college students.
