*In the wake of an “America’s Next Top Model” shakeup that left Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and Miss J. Alexander without jobs, producers have added fashion blogger Bryanboy, a.k.a. Bryan Grey Yambao, to the cast for Cycle 19.
It’s not clear what his role will be on the series, but according to WWD.com, the Filipino Internet star will join Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone, and newcomers Rob Evans and Johnny Wujek in Los Angeles for the college-themed new season in some capacity.
Evans and Wujek were recently added as a judge and stylist respectively.
Along with the new judges, Cycle 19, which will air Friday nights at 8 p.m. ET, will have contestants at various stages of education, from college to beauty school students. The upcoming season of “Top Model” will also feature audience participation. Fans will be able to vote online at www.cwtv.com and choose their favorite contestants. Then, the judges will use these scores to help determine who gets kicked off the show each week.
