Tyra Talks Changes on ‘Top Model’ Cycle 19

Attention all ANTM fans. Tomorrow, August 24th, 2012, marks the beginning of Cycle 19 — and you’re definitely not going to want to miss this new season.

They’ve decided to switch things up on Top Model this time around, and Tyra is excited to share about all the new changes that we’ll be seeing starting tomorrow.

According to ET Online,

“Cycle 19 of ‘America’s Next Top Model’ is beyond new,” Banks said. “We have total new judges and we have another new judge–our fourth judge is the home audience. So many people complained to me…so we finally listened to the audience and we’re letting them vote.”As Banks notes, bringing the general public into the judging room provides a more realistic situation for the models, as they are faced with their most important critics.

In addition to new judges, including the fourth judge — ahem, YOU — this season will also feature a special guest star: Tyler Perry.  Perry will help mentor the girls for one of their challenges that will involve acting — and having to remain in character while in real life situations. “It’s going to be fun”, says Perry. 

Watch the full interview the ET did with Tyra and Tyler Perry on the link above and don’t forget to catch the premiere of America’s Next Model Cycle 19 —  August 24 at 8 p.m. on the CW.
