As the Fall 2014-2015 Television Season begins, many new shows debut, while other shows launch a new season. One such show is America’s Next Top Model (ANTM), which introduced its 21 cycle (season) on August 18, 2014.

Created by the acclaimed Tyra Banks, ANTM gives aspiring models the opportunity to emerge as a breakthrough star in the modeling world. “ANTM is a great show that influences people to follow their dreams and Tyra Banks is a great role model for inspiring people to be comfortable in their own skin,” says senior and artist, Theresa Valdez. As the show progresses, the models participate in challenges to test their modeling ability, while one of them is eliminated each week. The judges prescribe challenge and photo scores for each model and combine it with their social media score to decide who will be going home for the week. Many popular models and fashion experts have been judges on the show, including Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone, J. Alexander, Rob Evans, Twiggy, and more.

Initially, the show only allowed women to be participants, but ever since cycle 20, both men and women have been contestants on the show. “I think it’s a great idea that ANTM is recognizing both men and women in the modeling industry because it gives an equal opportunity to everyone,” says senior, Kripa Mehta, a fashion blogger herself. Cycle 21 also has both male and female contestants and some have stood out already.

Keith Carlos, wide receiver who has played for the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants, is a standout, having earned the top score for the first challenge between the official 14 contestants. Chantelle Young, a Canadian model with symmetrical vitiligo, was specifically chosen by Tyra Banks for her unique characteristics and exceptional modelling skills. Romeo Tostado from Salinas, CA is another eye-catcher, who practices Wiccan traditions and even evokes fear in the judges, since whoever he desires to be eliminated, has thus far been eliminated. Such diverse personalities are bound to lead to tons of drama.

So, if you are interested in fashion, modelling, art, drama, or Tyra Banks, this is the perfect show to watch this Fall. There’s plenty more to come this season. If you do decide to tune in to ANTM, the show airs on Mondays and Fridays at 8 P.M.
