News of BryanBoy’s appointment to the ANTM judging panel follows the sudden dismissal of longtime cast members Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander.
BryanBoy initially denied the rumor, saying, “I love Tyra and ANTM–I think it would be amazing to make a cameo (hello Andre! hello Franca!) but no, nothing is in the works as of now. This is the first time I heard of this.”
However, sources now say he has signed on the dotted line. That’s according to WWD, but they also say the show is on CBS, not CW. Confusing!
As well as Kelly Cutrone and Tyra Banks, BryanBoy will be judging with two other newcomers: model Rob Evans. Celebrity stylist Johnny Wujek will be a new creative consultant.
It’s been rumored for a while that ‘America’s Next Top Model’ was going to add a social media angle, which is obviously something Bryan Boy could really help with. I just wish I’d been the blogger they picked!
BryanBoy has now confirmed his ANTM role via Facebook, saying,
“Excited with my new role on cycle 19 of America’s next top model.”
So, it’s true!
