After much ado, VH1 drew the curtain back on the panel of their revamped version of ‘America’s Next Top Model.’

Led by Rita Ora (who replaces Tyra Banks as host), the judges joining the singing entrepreneur are supermodel and body activist Ashley Graham, Paper Magazine C.O.O Drew Elliott and celebrity stylist/ image architect Law Roach.

Now, a day after the announcement, a series of snaps of the cast at work have been released.

Check ’em out above and below, where Ora’s message about her new role also awaits…

    They all look really stupid and as if they don’t belong TBH.

    I still am mad Miss Jay isn’t the host. He would whip those girls and if boys if doing that again… into shape!

    • Ughhhh July 23, 2016

      I hope Miss Jay is their challenge coach! Or I won’t be watching… I feel like that black guy in the plaits is going to try to be Miss Jay sooo hard. If I was an inspiring model I wouldn’t listen or seek advice from people that all look under 30 and are still trying to achieve their dreams like me.

    I’ve never liked this biittchh ever since she posted a picture of Beyonce with Lil’ Kim’s lyric: “When the queen comes to town everything shut down.” This show will not be renewed for a second season. Rita Oral sucks!

    Who’s dīck did Rita suck this time? What happened to hurricane Rita?

    • Mark111 /.\ July 23, 2016

      Turned out to be a gust of wind.

  4. BeyKnowlesBest July 23, 2016

    I’m not here for it . .I miss Mr & Mrs Jay they MADE Antm NOT TYRA! And Rita and these clowns won’t do NOTHING to revive this DEAD SHOW! #Next

  5. Stylequeen July 23, 2016

    Rita ora jack of all trades and master of none.

    • HALF AMAZIN July 24, 2016

      @stylequeen that is the TRUTH. And the truth is what God Loves!!!!!! This has got to be a bad joke. Why is Tyra even attaching her name to this as an executive producer??? #GoHomeRita

  6. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? July 23, 2016

    The black guy is so cute. I see he’s been taking hair tips from one of Bey’s backup dancers.

    Looks absolutely tragic.

  8. #JACKIE July 23, 2016

    Lol.

  9. Tea spilled July 23, 2016

    Lol..this looks absolutely tragic.

  10. Mark111 /.\ July 23, 2016

    I thought the point of the show was for models and people of the model industry to give tips and advice to the girls to become a top model. Rita isn’t a model, maybe to hookers.

    • And The Voice Of God Said? July 23, 2016

      ?It’s America’s Top Model
      The Instagram Thot Model edition. ?

    Chrissy Tiegen would have been light years above Rita Ora to host this show. Hell why not Ciara if we were going after musicians who have a model edge to them. Rihanna perhaps.

    • Flykiid July 23, 2016

      Exactly. No tea no shade, what makes Rita qualified to judge a modeling competition? I’m not even hating I’d seriously like to know? It just seems so random.. out of everyone? I’m just not here for it.. Tyra absolutely tried it!

    • And The Voice Of God Said? July 23, 2016

      ?Even Chrissy Tiegen knew this would be tragic. As quiet as its kept it only took one failed show from Tyra Banks to make her not touch it. She’s not trying to ruin her career by being attached to failure ??

  12. CherylSoldierr July 23, 2016

    But don’t y’all remember when Rihanna’s “hit fashion show” flopped and was canceled after one season? TEAAAA. And Cheryl have her her highest ratings. PIPING HOT TEA

  13. grapejuicefan July 23, 2016

    i’ll hold my judgements until i see the premiere,Rita make shock us all.

    • Dev July 24, 2016

      You’re probably right, but its a no from me.
      You want to watch a show about modelling hosted by someone who actually has modelling credentials. Yes they will show her Madonna & DKNY campaign to stop people scratching their heads but the fact remains is that she’s not a model.
      People have issue with non singers telling people on singing shows that they cannot sing and giving criticism.
      How is rita going to direct/suggest pose or present a picture with an idea of a task they should be completing?
      People are son fickle these days it’ll probably be a hit but anyone with any sense will not be tuning in. The only way this will work is if they pull out the big guns throughout for mentorship, they’ll have to make it like the Empire of modelling shows and have Naomi Campbell one week, Cindy Crawford another, Kate Moss, Cara Delevenge the week after followed by Jourdan Dunn to distract.

    Honestly, what makes Rita qualified to judge up and coming models? She is not an established anything

    • RihNavy July 24, 2016

      Not true sis. She’s the established headmistress of the entertainment industry.

  15. ow Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely Ukuyikiji July 24, 2016

    Good luck to her hosting on TV and she ain’t no damn model

  16. J-Mar July 24, 2016

    Rita Horror Why Not Ciara or Rihanna as host they have the perfect body and image to host the show instead of this b****.

  17. cocobutta July 24, 2016

    Uh oh uh oh uh oh a no no

  18. Annalise July 24, 2016

    Looks like Styled to Flop tbh, and I just KNOW the ratings will be awful. They should have spent millions and got Naomi Campbell to revamp the show. I know Naomi wouldn’t want Tyra’s sloppy seconds, but if they paid her enough I’m sure she would have done it and it would have SLAYEDT!

    • Nate July 24, 2016

      Right! Tyra’s too bitter for that, because she knows Naomi would make better TV than here. Not only does the camera love Naomi, but she’s actually entertaining/hilarious even. Plus she has the credentials. Imagine having Naomi and Ms Jay together, now that would save this show! I still love Naomi’s The Face though, her lines are so memorable, “check your lipstick before you come talk to me!” She’s tv gold.

  19. Danny Bey July 24, 2016

    I’ll watch the first few episode to make a judgement but as of right now I’m really not here for this. Nothing will ever top what it used to be.even the last season was everything.
