There is no stopping Tyra Banks. Pretty soon, the model is going to be snatching everyone’s jobs around Hollywood — or America.
Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Banks would be taking over Nick Cannon’s duties as host of America’s Got Talent. Now, it’s being revealed that the mother of one will also be returning as host of America’s Next Top Model.
The news was unveiled on Thursday after the creator of the hit modeling competition show tweeted that she “missed my ANTM baby so Mama’s back!”
She also wrote in a statement:
“I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the intensity of the ANTM fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart. After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn’t enough because ANTM is woven into my DNA.”
Banks took a step back from hosting the show after 22 cycles and enlisted Rita Ora last season to help find some of the country’s top models. But don’t worry, there are no hard feelings between the two.
Just before Banks’ announcement, she praised Rita via the social media website for a job well done. “Mizz @ritaora, you exemplify Business Boss Brand to the fullest! Thank you for all the amazingness you brought to ANTM,” she wrote.
In response, Ora tweeted: “I love you!!!”
Are you all ready for Tyra’s triumphant return? We sure as heck are. And with that being said, let us leave you with this.
