Tyra’s Back on America’s Next Top Model. Wait what about Rita Ora? Well it looks like she’s out as the host of the show and Tyra Banks wants back in just as she was named the new host of America’s Got Talent. Tyra heads back to ANTM this summer when production begins. “I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the intensity of the ‘ANTM’ fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart,” Tyra said. “After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn’t enough because ‘ANTM’ is woven into my DNA.”
Banks and Ken Mok will continue as executive producers. Additional panelists to be announced at a later date.“Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize. We’d like to thank Rita Ora for being a great partner and total pro. She infused this new iteration of ‘ANTM’ with passion and creativity and we wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors,” said Mok.

Rita was good on the show. I thought she was a good example of someone current who they could relate to in the business. But she’s dunzo on the show.
