Tyra Banks Reacts To The Amazing New “Top Model” Cast Photos

The casting photoshoot’s theme is either an S&M dungeon sex party… or a Rihanna music video. Enjoy some Tyra reaction GIFs.

1. The new, twentieth cycle of America’s Next Top Model starts in just two weeks!

And to help you get excited, dominatrix extraordinaire Tyra Banks whipped her new batch of model hamsters — guys and girls, this time around — into shape for an EDGY, SEXY, FIERCE pre-show photoshoot. (Interpret those adjectives loosely, Tyra wouldn’t want it any other way.)

Any excuse to dress male models in pleather pants, then. Let’s meet the cast:

4. Jiana Davis.

6. Mike Scocozzo.

8. Renee Bhagwandeen

ID: 1388318

Tyra says: “Didn’t we cast you once already, AMBREAL?”
(That’s Top Model cycle 9 alum Ambreal Williams, specifically.)

10. Don Benjamin.

ID: 1388311

Tyra says something unintelligible in a faux-foreign accent.

ID: 1388344

12. Chlea Ramirez.

ID: 1388320

Tyra says some generic bullshit about a “fiercely real” model who will inevitably be eliminated in the first two weeks of the cycle.
And then she does a dance.

14. Cory Hindorff.

ID: 1388309

Tyra says: “Snaps for you, Cory.”

ID: 1388339

16. Alex Argo.

ID: 1388313

Tyra says nothing, because her expression says it all.
(Those dangly padlocks are certainly rage-inducing.)

ID: 1388360

18. Jeremy Rohmer.

ID: 1388312

Tyra says: “Bitch please, even I don’t need that much airbrushing.”
Tyra also says, “tryouts for that Twilight wolfpack-themed gay porno were two doors down.”

ID: 1388349

20. Jourdan Miller.

ID: 1388317

Tyra says: “Tooch! Tooch! Toochie! Toochieriffic! Oh tooch you didn’t! Tooch! Tooch it! Don’t tooch me though! Tooch!”
Still trying to make tooch happen, that Tyra doesn’t give up easy.

22. Marvin Cortes.

ID: 1388315

Tyra says “…”

ID: 1388628

24. Some more of this face, just because.

ID: 1388382

25. Kanani Andulez.

ID: 1388321

Tyra, still all worked up from Marvin’s photo, says: “I like you,” and winks in an intimidating manner.
Kanani then quits, because she feels uncomfortable. What a shame.

ID: 1388636

27. Chris Hernandez.

ID: 1388316

Tyra says: “Wait, I thought the gay biker bar photoshoot was scheduled for next cycle.”

ID: 1388390

29. Bianca Alexa.

ID: 1388319

Tyra says something entirely unrelated to Bianca’s photo, and then just talks about some hardship she endured during her early modeling career for a while.

ID: 1388462

31. Phil Sullivan.

ID: 1388323

Tyra says: “SILVER PANTS.”

ID: 1388353

33. Nina Burns.

ID: 1388324

Tyra says, “I admire your commitment to this broke down air doll pose, but is your right leg actually meant to bend like that?”
Tyra then clarifies, “I’m only asking because I care.” Which is a lie, because it’s all for the RATINGS.

35. Anyway, this cast looks like it will bring the necessary Top Model crazy, so that’s good. Bring on the show.

ID: 1388534

36. Although the season may have already been spoiled by a band of a band of serious superfans.

But hey, even if you do know what’s happening in the judging room each week, it’s still worth watching for ROB EVANS. And for Tyra’s new smize tips. And for the fights. And for the crying. And for Kelly Cutrone, but of course.
