Attitude is Back!

— Supermodel Paulina Porizkova Joins the Panel of Judges for Cycle 10 —

The competition goes back to where it all started, New York City, as 14 hopefuls fight to turn their dreams into reality, when “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 10 premieres with a one-hour episode on Wednesday, February 20th, 2008 at 8:00pm on Citytv.

From the cat walk to cat fights, the 14 participants reside in the model house and face off in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp. The girls’ abilities are tested each week as they strive to master the runway and fashion photo shoots, while perfecting publicity skills and learning the business aspects of becoming a supermodel, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance. Throughout the series, supermodel Tyra Banks, art director Jay Manuel, and runway guru J. Alexander mentor the model hopefuls.

Tyra leads the panel of judges, comprised of leading fashion industry experts. Joining the panel this cycle is supermodel Paulina Porizkova, along with returning judges photographer Nigel Barker and runway expert J. Alexander, who closely evaluate the progress of the models to narrow the field each week. In addition, special guest judges appear to critique the participants within his or her area of expertise.

The winner of “America’s Next Top Model” will be managed by Elite Model Management. She also receives a $100,000 contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl and will appear on the cover and six-page fashion spread in Seventeen magazine.
