Nigel Barker may not be an "America's Next Top Model" judge anymore, but he doesn't have any hard feelings.

In a recent interview on "Fox & Friends" (weekdays at 6 a.m. PT on Fox), the former judge -- who served on the show's panel for an impressive 18 cycles -- said that although Tyra Banks "went through a bit of housecleaning," he had a "great run."

So what's Barker's next project? The fashion photographer is on his way to another fashion competition show, "The Face," a project that supermodels Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha and Naomi Campbell have are also attached to.

"America's Next Top Model" -- which let Barker, J. Alexander and Jay Manuel go-- has recruited Rob Evans, Johnny Wujek, Jontè and Bryanboy for Cycle 19.

Evans will join Banks and returning judge Kelly Cutrone on the judging panel. Wujek will serve as the photo shoot creative consultant, Bryanboy will mentor the models as well as serve as social media correspondent and Jontè -- a dancer and choreographer known for his work with Beyonce -- will also help the contestants with various challenges and photo shoots.

"America's Next Top Model" Cycle 19 is a college edition that will premiere on Friday, Aug. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
