The CW has revealed the 13 contestants who will compete for the title of “America’s Next Top Model” in cycle 9 of the popular reality series. The journey for these model hopefuls begins in the one-hour premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 19 on The CW.
During this cycle, the 13 participants live together and ferociously vie for the grand prize, competing in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp. The participantsâ€™ abilities are tested each week as they strive to master the runway and fashion photo shoots, perfect publicity skills and learn the business aspects of becoming a supermodel, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance of the “America’s Next Top Model” cameras. Throughout the series, supermodel Tyra Banks, art director of photo shoots Jay Manuel, and runway guru J. Alexander mentor the participants. Black Talent News
