America's Next Top Model viewers are going to have to have to wait a little bit longer for the show's twelfth season to start.
The CW has announced that it has bumped the premiere of the new season of Top Model back a week. Instead of premiering on February 25 as previously announced, Top Model's new season will now debut on Wednesday, March 4 at 8PM ET/PT.
In addition, instead of debuting with a one-hour episode, the twelfth season will now premiere with a special two-hour broadcast.
Top Model's twelfth-season winner will receive the same grand prize package that was first introduced during the show's seventh season -- a management deal with Elite Model Management; a $100,000 contract with cosmetics company CoverGirl; and a cover story and six-page fashion spread in an issue of Seventeen magazine.
The CW revealed the identities of Top Model's 13 twelfth-season contestants last month.
