Tyra Banks Gets Rid of 'America's Next Top Model' Age Limit
Tyra Banks is back at the helm of America’s Next Top Model and making a big change.
The 43-year-old host has announced that she is removing the age limit from the contestant application for the upcoming season, allowing models of all ages to apply.
“There have been 23 cycles of America’s Next Top Model, and every single cycle we say you have to be 27 years old or younger,” Tyra said in a Twitter video. “You know what I hear all the time? ‘Tyra, come on! Why have an age limit?’ So, you know what? I’m taking that age limit off. You want to audition for America’s Next Top Model? I don’t care how old you are, honey.”
She added, “You just need to know how to smize and be open to learning how to work the runway like a supermodel.”
