Like last fall's Top Model 5, Top Model 6 will feature thirteen girls (one girl fewer than the franchise record fourteen contestants that the show's third and fourth seasons featured.)
However, unlike last season, Top Model 6 won't feature a dramatic shakeup of the show's judging panel -- last season's new judging panel will be returning unchanged for Top Model 6, with former supermodel Twiggy, photographer Nigel Barker, and runway expert J. Alexander all once again serving on the panel with Tyra. As in previous seasons, Top Model 6 will also feature additional special guest judges.
Ranging in age between 18 and 26, Top Model 6's cast includes two girls from each of the states of Arkansas, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Texas and one girl from each of the states of Arizona, California, Louisiana, North Carolina, and South Dakota. Like it has for its last two seasons, Top Model's sixth edition was filmed in the Los Angeles area, with the girls living in a posh mansion during the show's production.
After its special two-hour premiere, Top Model 6 will air in its regular 8PM ET/PT time period beginning Wednesday, March 15.
