The CW has announced it has ordered a nineteenth edition of America's Next Top Model for fall broadcast and revealed the season will feature a "College Edition" twist in which all the contestants will be participating in some type of program to further their educations.
In addition, the network has announced nearly three dozen casting-call locations all around the country for the upcoming season.
The show is "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 Banks] and the judges," according to The CW.
