Cycle 20 of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL hosted by Tyra Banks, returns with new prizes and new competition – men!  The first-ever “Guys and Girls” edition will begin airing Summer 2013.

In addition to the panel of judges, which includes Banks, fashion public relations maven Kelly Cutrone and former boxer and international male supermodel Rob Evans, the public will again be able to have a say in who stays and who goes in the competition.   Famed stylist Johnny Wujek returns as photo shoot creative consultant and top fashion blogger Bryanboy will return as the social media correspondent, mentoring the models and highlighting the scores, comments and video messages from the viewers that will be revealed in the show during judging.
