(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
We were rooting for you, we were all rooting for you!
It didn't seem like we'd ever live to see the day, but it looks like America's Next Top Model is finally coming to an end this season after premiering on UPN back in 2003.
Tyra Banks announced her decision to cancel her modeling reality show on Wednesday afternoon saying she felt like the time had come to move on from constant smizing.
The CW show is currently in its 22nd cycle with competitors Lacey Rogers, Nyle DiMarco, and Mikey Heverly fighting it out to see who will be America's last top model. (There are still three more people in the running, but let's be real here.)
ANTM helped launch the career(s) of Analeigh Tipton, Adrianne Curry, and more, not to mention a thousand perfect memes, so clearly it left its mark on pop culture.
Make sure to catch the series finale of America's Next Top Model Friday, Nov. 20 at 9pm EST on The CW!
Ch-ch-check out Tyra's full Instagram announcement (below)!!!
TYRA MAIL! Thinking #ANTM #cycle22 should be our last cycle. Yeah, I truly believe it's time. Our diehard fans know we've expanded the definition of beauty, presented what Flawsome is, tooched and booched and boom boom boomed, shown the world how to show their neck, rocked couture/catalogue/commercial poses, have found our (and your) light, strutted countless runways, gone on tons of go-sees, added guys to the girls mix, and have traveled around the globe and back again. Yeah, it's time. It really is. Wow, I am SO proud of what Top Model has done. #ANTM brought the intimidating modeling world to the masses. We were the first reality show based in the fashion world. I never thought my little idea would have people everywhere thinking differently about how they take photos. And I never thought we'd do 22 cycles. Whoa! So many!!! And what rhymes with 22? You. And you and you and you and you! YOU made Top Model what it is. We are a global force that has so many international versions around the world because of YOU! That's amazing and beyond anything that I ever dreamed. I set out to create a show where Perfect is Boring. So I hope you continue to love your freckles, your moles, your big forehead, your big eyes, your small eyes, your pointy chin, your tiny boobs, your full chest, your ivory or ebony skin (or every color in between) - the stuff about you that makes you well…you. And I hope you've learned a heck of a lot from watching. I have an inkling you have. May your photos (and selfies) be forever fierce. May you always find your light. And may you werk hallways like runways. Always remember, you are beautiful & BOOTYful. And please, keep on Smizing each and every day for TyTy. Fierce & Love, 💛TyraA photo posted by Tyra Banks (@tyrabanks) on Oct 14, 2015 at 12:44pm PDT
