Well this ought to show her haters!

The course will span over two weeks and only 25 lucky students will get to participate.

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?

We were rooting for you, we were all rooting for you… and it paid off!

Tyra Banks shocked the world when she quit both America's Next Top Model and FABLife to focus on her other business ventures, but now we officially know what she's been up to for the past year.

That's because in addition to getting cast as a mentor on Arnold Schwarzenegger's Celebrity Apprentice, NBC just put in a series order for a brand new reality show starring Mizz Tyra herself!

Earlier this year, Rita Ora announced she would be quitting the judging panel of X Factor so she could focus on her music career.

But it looks like the songstress is focusing on her TV hosting career instead, because she reportedly signed up to be the next host of America's Next Top Model!

Tyra Banks' model competition show was cancelled by The CW earlier this year, only to be resurrected by VH1 — with the promise of a complete makeover!

Make Apprentice great again!

We think Arnold Schwarzenegger is the perfect choice to take over for Donald Trump as the host on this season of Celebrity Apprentice.

And in the first poster for the upcoming eighth season of the NBC celeb competition, the Governator has never looked more heroic riding in on a white horse!

E! News dropped the first look of the True Lies star (quite literally) taking the reigns from his predecessor — letting us know it's officially time for The NEW Celebrity Apprentice!

But Arnie isn't the only newcomer to the reality competition — as we reported, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Warren Buffett, and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will all be dealing with the celebrity contestants.

As for the new boss, we just can't wait to find out if Schwarzenegger will tell contestants they're "terminated" when they get fired from the show! LOLz!
