After 22 Cycles, equating to 12 years of modeling, smizing and tons of knowledge about the modeling industry, America’s Next Top Model (#ANTM) will come to an end.
TYRA MAIL! Thinking #ANTM22 should be our last cycle. I truly believe it's time. May your pics be forever fierce. Keep on Smizing! 💛Tyra

After the first 20 season were for ladies only, Banks used the last three seasons to allow men and women to compete in a competition that inspired spin-offs in over 70 countries across the world.
Banks leaves a long legacy of creating industry ready supermodels such as Dani Evans, Yoanna House, Bianca Golden, Eva Marcelle, and YaYa DaCosta. The men of ANTM may even get more famous than the ladies, as first male winner, Kieth Carlos (Cycle 21) and Don Benjamin (Cycle 20) have taken the modeling and entertainment industry by storm.
As an avid fan of the show, I am saddened by the ending however knowing that I have not seen ONE episode of Cycle 22 means that I understand why it’s time to move on.
One thing is for sure, Tyra Banks will forever live on and I can’t wait to see what she has up next!
Will you miss ANTM?
