The CW will have more fierceness and smizing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered another season of "America's Next Top Model" -- Cycle 19, to be exact. The new season of "Top Model," a college edition, will debut in the fall.
The news arrives just days before the start of Cycle 18 (premieres Wed., Feb. 29, 9 p.m. EST), which will pit British models against American contestants. Cycle 18 guest judges include Kelly Osbourne, Kris Jenner, pop star Estelle, "So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley, former Pussycat Doll Jessica Sutta and fashion photographer Jez Smith.
"America's Next Top Model" got its start on UPN and moved over to The CW when The WB and UPN merged in 2006. It is the only UPN show still standing on The CW. "Top Model" has lost steam in the ratings over the years, but is still one of The CW's strongest players. THR reports the series averaged a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic during Cycle 17.
