Our booties are toochin'!

While Tyra Banks' vision of America's Next Top Model had started to go mad before it was driven into the ground by male contestants on The CW, Rita Ora's incarnation is bringing back the basics.

There's less than one month to go until ANTM 2.0 premieres on VH1 — which means now is the perfect time to introduce us to the rest of the cast!

And sorry, Nyle DiMarco… No cis boys allowed this time!

Although they never said anything about TWINS…

Get ready to tooch ya booty!

Our nation almost lost one of its founding reality TV empires last year when The CW decided to cancel America's Next Top Model… but luckily VH1 swooped in for the save!

While Tyra Banks will no longer be serving as host — don't worry, she's still an executive producer — Rita Ora is about ready to judge women on their modeling skills, despite only being a singer by trade herself.

We already knew the former X Factor mentor would be joined by none other than Ashley Graham, Paper Magazine's Drew Elliott, and stylist Law Roach… but we FINALLY got our first sneak peek at the new cycle on Thursday!

Sure, it's only a look at whom we're assuming could be the competitors — but at least it's a classic, all-girls only season this time around!!

Tyra Banks CONFIRMS Rita Ora Is The New Host Of America's Next Top Model — More Casting Deets HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsTyra BanksRita OraAmerica's Next Top ModelAshley Graham

What an exciting time for Rita Ora!

On Thursday, Tyra Banks revealed that Rita will be the next host of America's Next Top Model. The beauty made the announcement via USA Today following months of rumors that the singer would take her place.

Speaking on the new direction of the show Ora is set to materialize, Banks explained:

"It's no longer just about having the highest cheekbones and best pout and the best hair. My goal is to really get into these girls' heads that I'm not looking for some successful model and I'm not looking for some social-media star. I'm looking for both. I'm looking for a hybrid, because that's where the world is."

Hmm… this sounds like the franchise is looking for a Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid type. Should be interesting!

As for R.O., she believes she's more than capable of embodying the new spirit of the show:

"The approach I wanted to have as a host and judge to the girls is what my career stands for at this moment in time, which is being a businesswoman and being able to do multiple things at the same time, whether it's music or shooting (magazine covers) and being in movies and designing clothes."

Well, you can't deny the 25-year-old IS a triple threat. We can see this one working out!

As for where they are in shooting the season, Ora confessed:

"I actually just finished my first elimination. I can't go into detail, but it was definitely an emotional one."

Ohhh, drama already! Nice.

But wait, that's not all! Paper magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliott, stylist Law Roach and model Ashley Graham will also join the judge's panel this season.

So, what do YOU think of Tyra's picks?
