‘America’s Next Top Model’ not ending yet; The CW orders cycle of Tyra Banks series

Top Model -While “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race” may be given much of the acclaim for their longevity, you have to say the same thing right now about the “America’s Next Top Model” franchise.

While this show may be relatively under-the-radar over at The CW, it is apparently doing well enough for the network to continually want to give it more and more play on the network. Today, it was announced that there will be a landmark 22nd cycle of the show, which is hosted and executive produced by Tyra Banks. In continuing the theme from the past two seasons, it will once again feature men and women competing for the title.

This series first premiered all the way back in 2003, and while most of its winners are not names that you would necessarily remember if you were just a casual fan, there are some that have gone on to have respectable careers in the fashion / modeling world. More than anything else, this show should be thought of as a platform to really prepare yourself for a future in the limelight, regardless of it you are talking about acting, modeling, singing, or something else. Ultimately, it does not quite matter in the end just what you are talking about if you use the show right to show off your personality.

For those wondering, The CW also is continuing to highlight unscripted fare by ordering more episodes of “Penn & Teller: Fool Us,” and the Dean Cain-hosted series “Masters of Illusion.” They also continue to have “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” airing on the network.
