Top Model will air an all-star season this fall

America’s Next Top Model will air its first-ever all-star season this fall. It will be the show’s 17th season, and the network has also renewed the show for its 18th season.

The CW has yet to announce who will appear, but said in a press release that it will be “featuring the models who became breakout characters and who had the most memorable stories from past cycles.”

Perhaps that will include an appearance by Michelle, who can quit like she did on Tough Enough to spend more time with the kid she has with Johnny Fairplay, making their child even more powerful.
