!! OMG, meet the newest ANTM judge: Male model Rob Evans !!
When Cycle 19 starts later this year, the only judge you'll recognize will be Cycle 18 first-timer Kelly Cutrone, who will be joined by male model Rob Evans and stylist to the stars Johnny Wujek. Reports claim that Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander were all fired from their posts on America's Next Top Model -- but is fired the right word? All three appear to have healthy careers outside of the show, and none of their comments since the announcement point toward ill will. "I will miss the cast, the crew and 'ANTM' will always have a special place in my heart, having made life-long friendships with countless fond memories," Barker wrote on his blog, sentiments also voiced by Tyra via Twitter: "Fierce & love 2 my @NigelBarker, @MrJayManuel & Miss J. #ANTM turned us in2 a family. Excited for what the future holds for us. XOXO TyTy."
