Miss J., Mr. Jay and Nigel Barker are out on "America's Next Top Model," and Johnny Wujek and Rob Evans are now in.
Tyra Banks has announced that the fashion savvy duo will replace her longtime comrades on the next season of "America’s Next Top Model.”
Wujek, who is Katy Perry’s stylist, and Evans, who is a model in his own right, will serve as the show’s creative consultant and judge, respectively. Evans will join Kelly Cutrone at the judges' table as the show's third judge.
Banks welcomed the men aboard her reality show via Twitter Thursday.
"Welcome the fab Johnny Wujek & fine Rob Evans to the CW's ANTM!" wrote the 38-year-old. "Excited for some cuh-ray-zee challenges. Start practicin' ur booty tooch!"
The former supermodel also indicated that The CW would be making changes to her long-running show’s format, causing it to be more interactive.
"Twice a week, starting Thursday, May 24, you'll be able to use our Voting App to rank and sound off on all 13 models' best photos," she said to viewers. "Your input will shape the competition and you'll be able to see it play out in the Fall. It's time for your voice to be heard; today on social media and soon on the show itself!"
"I know u get mad when we send girls home on ANTM," she tweeted. "So get ur judging smize on bc for Cycle19, you help make the choices!"
The new season - which will reportedly have a collegiate theme - will begin airing this fall.
