"America's Next Top Model" will have its first ever "Guys and Girls" edition when it premieres late this summer. The two-hour premiere of the 20th cycle will air on Friday, Aug. 2, the CW announced in a press release.
The upcoming cycle will explore the similarities and differences that male and female models face in the pursuit of their careers, and each week experts and celebrities will mentor and challenge them.
In addition to the panel of judges, which includes host Tyra Banks, fashion public relations maven Kelly Cutrone and former boxer and international male supermodel Rob Evans, the public will again be able to have a say in who stays and who goes in the competition.
The winner will receive prizes including: $100,000 national ad campaign with GUESS, whose advertising campaigns have launched many modeling careers; a fashion feature in NYLON magazine, as well as a modeling contract with Next Model Management.
