Transcript for Tyra Banks Adds Male Models to 'America's Next Top Model'
Yeah. Everybody, sam used to be a model. A hand model. Nobody better to talk to about that, than tyra banks. Hi, tyra. I like this dress. "America's next top model," on it's 20th season, this hard to believe. Adding a new element, male models. Tyra banks is here. You have been dying for this for a long time. I've been wanting guys on "top model" for so, so long. My boss finally said yes. I'm telling everybody, yes. And they're here. It's so weird to be on-set. Like, a guy is changing. And doing the girls' makeup. Oh, I'm not going to look at that. In your world, it's all got to come off and come back on in 20 seconds or less. As a model, I know models doing that. As big sister, that's gross. Cover it. Cover it. And it's really been 20 cycles? That doesn't mean 20 years. Ten years. I watched every one, tyra. Have you? I don't care how many times they come on tv, but I still watch them. You still watch. And I love that some of the male models have been surprisingly more drama queenish than the female models. They are drama queens. They're crying in flont of me when I'm saying that one of them might go home. They storm off camera. They're having fights with the girl models. That's why you -- that's why i don't like your poses. Really? All that? They're like macho, hard dudes having model fights. I have to get to the tease. We spent our special correspondent, rachel smith, out in the streets with one of your judges. Kelly stone. To see if we could find men that you think would make the cut. Take a look.
