America's most beautiful?
Top Model is back with another season of catwalks and catfights!
They may be beautiful, but these girls are ready for battle. Beginning 1/13 on UPN, supermodel Tyra Banks will host a new season of America's Next Top Model, a competition in which 12 of the country's most beautiful women do whatever it takes to win a modeling contract.
Living together in a New York loft, the aspiring models will spend 10 episodes under constant surveillance as they endure modeling boot camp -- a crash course to transform them from pretty woman to fashion superstars. "There will be temptations, insecurities, rejection and criticism," Tyra told In Touch. "They'll have to deal with it, just like in the real world."
