Top Model’s fall season will be a “college edition”

America’s Next Top Model has been renewed for a 19th season, and the CW competition is now casting for women who are in college, because that season will be its “college edition.”

The CW said in a statement that “casting directors are looking everywhere from Ivy League campuses to party schools, from pre-med to pre-beautician, and from Big Ten to Pac Ten for girls from all walks of life, all parts of the nation, and all types of continuing education who will be invited to show their school spirit — and their modeling chops — to Tyra and the judges.”

It also says that the as-yet-unannounced prize will include a way to “help them continue to earn their degree.” They’re casting, including at several opening casting calls, for 18- to 27-year-old women who are at least 5’7″.
