Tyra might have hung up her model-mentoring hat, but America's Next Top Model is BACK, people, with 14 new girls and just as much screaming/crying/fainting/smizing drama as you've come to know and love.

Premiering December 12 on VH1, the new ANTM features a colorful (in more ways than one) cast led by host Rita Ora, and on the judging panel, Ashley Graham, Paper Magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliot, and stylist Law Roach. Never fear, though—Tyra will still be involved as a producer who sometimes makes on-camera appearances—PERHAPS TO DELIVER SOME MAIL, HMMM? 🙏🙏🙏
