    There Is No Age Limit To Audition For "America's Next Top Model" Now

    *Oprah voice* You get to be a model, you get to be a model, you get to be a model!

    A few weeks ago, it was announced that Tyra Banks would be returning to America's Next Top Model, the show she helped co-create and turn into an international franchise.

    In a press release last month, Banks said the "intensity of the ANTM fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart." As such, Rita Ora's one-season stint as host has come to an end.

    Though details regarding the next panel of judges have yet to be revealed, Banks did disclose a major detail about the upcoming season: There will be no age limit in order to audition.

    "You know, I've stood for diverse beauty and erasing cookie-cutters when it comes to what is deemed beautiful," Banks said in a video posted to her Instagram over the weekend.

    In addition to age being a non-factor now, Banks also highlighted that people of "all shapes" were also welcome to audition. The most recent cycle of the show received a bit of flack for having no plus-size contestants.

    With Banks back at the helm, Top Model fans will be smizing and booty tooching in front of their television screens in no time.
