America's Next Top Model Cycle 21

14 Girls & Guys Hit the Runway in Cycle 21 of ANTM

••• America's Next Top Model Cycle 21. CW Network

Can’t wait for your next fix of America’s Next Top Model?  Well, you’re in luck because Cycle 21 of Tyra Banks’ hit show hits the runway on the CW Network in just a few days!

With the success of last season’s cycle, which featured both female and male models, Cycle 21 will also feature female and male models competing for the title of America’s Next Top Model. 

Included in this season's list of hopefuls is 19 year old Canadian model, Chantelle Brown-Young, who at the age of four, was diagnosed with the rare skin disorder vitiligo; the same condition that reportedly afflicted pop icon Michael Jackson.

  According to the National Institutes of Health, the disorder is believed to destroy pigment producing skin cells, causing white patches, which are more noticeable on naturally dark skin. In Brown-Young's case, these patches are nearly symmetrical.

The returning judges, in addition to Tyra Banks, include fashion public relations guru, Kelly Cutrone, and runway coach and fashion diva, J. Alexander (aka “Miss J.”).   Photographer and photo shoot creative director, Yu Tsai, will also be joining the team.

The 14 model finalists will compete for the title of America’s Next Top Model, a modeling contract with top modeling agency, Next Model Management, a $100,000 cash prize from GUESS, and an editorial spread in Nylon Magazine.

The international destination this season will be Seoul, Korea with five of the episodes being filmed there.  One of the episodes will feature James of Royal Pirates, and the finale will have guest appearances from K-pop girl group 2NE1, boy band BTOB (Born to Beat), actor and model Lee Soo-hyuk, and fashion designer Lie Sang Bong.
