Catfights and Catwalks! Check Out the All-New America's Next Top Model

Posted on

A brand-new season of America’s Next Top Model is about to hit the small screen — and it looks just as epic as fans might have hoped.

PEOPLE can exclusively reveal the first full-length trailer for the upcoming season of the hit modeling competition series, which stars incoming host Rita Ora, as well as a new panel of judges: supermodel Ashley Graham, stylist Law Roach and Paper magazine creative director Drew Elliott.

Longtime host and creator Tyra Banks, who is executive-producing the revival, will also be stopping by here and there to make a few appearances — and if the trailer is any indication, she hasn’t gotten a drop less fierce.

“I’m not looking for a traditional model,” Banks, 42, tells the all-female cast of aspiring supermodels. “And I’m not looking for a social media model. I’m looking for both.”

And the new panel isn’t messing around either: “I know how to sell, I know how to create a brand and I know how to have multiple business ventures,” says Ora, 26.

“I believe that I’m living proof that there’s no one standard of beauty anymore,” adds Graham, 28.

Elliott has already established himself as the tough cookie judge (“I don’t sugarcoat anything — I am not here to be your best friend,” he vows), and Roach doesn’t hold back either when it comes to critiquing the models’ personal style.

“This is your story — your time,” Ora urges the girls as they navigate their way through photoshoots, challenges, runway shows and elimination ceremonies. “It’s all about being a boss.”

The new 14-episode season, which is set in New York City, will also feature a wide array of celebrity guest stars including DJ Khaled, Zendaya, Jason Derülo, Amber Rose, French Montana, Chanel Iman, Tinashe and more.

As for the 14 contestants, they’re as determined as ever.

“I have a story that needs to be told, I have passion that needs to be felt, so I’m putting myself out there,” says one girl, while another promises “nothing” is going to get in her way.

“I eat, dream, live, breathe modeling,” adds another aspiring model.

And as always, there’s plenty of camaraderie between the women as they become close friends and encourage each other throughout the season — but of course, the claws come out, too.

“I can’t wait till you guys get eliminated,” snarls one girl, while another tearfully moans that living in the house is “wearing” on her.

“I really don’t need to be best friends with these girls,” says another. “Some of them get under my skin.”

But ultimately, Ora reminds the women what they’re all working towards: “This is the real deal,” she tells them. “This is: ‘I am a supermodel star.’ ”

The winner will receive $100,000 and a commercial feature on behalf of Rimmel London. Additionally, she’ll score a fashion spread in Paper magazine, along with an exclusive one-year talent deal with VH1.

The new season of ANTM premieres Dec. 12 at 10 p.m. ET on VH1.
