Top Model all-star cast announced

The cast of the 17th season of America’s Next Top Model, the first all-star cast in the history of the show, has been announced, and it will likely be the only season of the show to air this year.

The group includes three runners-up (Shannon, Allison, Laura), and no one from cycles 3, 6, 7, or 8. They are, according to The CW:

“Shannon Stewart (Cycle 1), Camille McDonald (Cycle 2), Brittany Brower (Cycle 4), Lisa D’Amato (Cycle 5), Bre Scullark (Cycle 5), Bianca Golden (Cycle 9), Dominique Reighard (Cycle 10), Isis King (Cycle 11), Sheena Sakai (Cycle 11), Allison Harvard (Cycle 12), Laura Kirkpatrick (Cycle 13), Angelea Preston (Cycle 14), Kayla Ferrel (Cycle 15) and Alexandria Everett (Cycle 16).”

The network also announced that guest judges will include Kathy Griffin, LaToya Jackson, Kristin Cavallari, Ashlee Simpson, Tyson Beckford, CSI creator Anthony Zuiker, and others.

The CW’s president, Mark Pedowitz, also just told TV critics that its mid-season reality series Remodeled, which is about small modeling agencies joining together, will be used to “give Top Model a rest,” which apparently means there will just be one cycle of the series this year.
