America's Next Top Model returns for cycle 12 with 13 new contestants eager to be crowned the next top model. To find the 13 selected, the 34 models are first put through a photo shoot at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Tyra then chooses the best 13 and sends them to the loft in New York City. Next, the ladies work a fashion show and then bring back some childhood games as they participate in another photo shoot.
Created by Tyra Banks, America's Next Top Model follows a group of young women of various backgrounds, shapes and sizes who live together in a loft and vie for a modeling contract.
The show exposes the transformation of everyday young women into potentially fierce supermodels, with participants facing weekly tests that determine who can make the cut. With mentoring by supermodel Tyra Banks and exposure to high-profile fashion-industry gurus, the finalists compete in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp - a crash course to supermodel fame.
