This fall, America’s Next Top Model will unveil its 11th season on the CW network. It may be one of the last seasons to feature Tyra Banks as the host of the wildly popular reality show. Back in March, OK magazine reported that Banks was thinking of leaving the show, due in part to a rift between her and Jay Manuel. “It’s gotten so bad that Tyra and Jay aren’t speaking,” an insider told the magazine. While Tyra figures out her future, the show must go on and cycle 11 is well underway. This week, thanks to superfans and superspies, the international destination was revealed along with some other juicy tidbits!
A Top Model fan came across judge Paulina Porizkova while waiting in line at JFK International Airport in New York City. It turns out that she was waiting to board KLM, a Dutch airline company. This comes on the heels of photos that surfaced on the internet of Tyra Banks and the final 5 cycle 11 models in Amsterdam. Security for America’s Next Top Model did their best to stop fans and press from taking pictures but a few lucky ones snapped a photo and put them online.
This is a departure from the usual number of models that head on the international destination. Tyra usually brings along the final 6 but the fact that she is only bringing 5 suggests a possible double elimination. According to several Top Model blogs, international go-sees will also make a return for cycle 11.
It is also being reported that, while Amsterdam, the final 5 models will participate in a photo shoot with pieces from renowned jewelry designer, Rodrigo Otazu. Otazu has worked with the best of the best in the fashion and entertainment world. He has provided pieces for runway shows for everyone from Christian Lacroix to Jean-Paul Gaultier. He has also had his jewelry worn by celebrities such as Britney Spears and Aretha Franklin.
