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.

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.”
