The contestants complete a challenge that leaves them hanging, then celebrity guest photographer Shenae Grimes shoots the models posing as taxidermy. Viewers are introduced to top fashion blogger, Bryanboy, who joins as the show's first-ever social media correspondent, while judges Kelly Cutrone, Rob Evans and Tyra Banks team with the judging audience for the first elimination of the cycle.
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.
