With Tyra Banks hosting again, and Ashley Graham returning as a judge, "America's Next Top Model" fans are READY for Cycle 24. Now that they've debuted a new list of contestants, viewers might notice a *certain* body-positive activist onscreen.
The "America's Next Top Model" lineup includes a body-positive model that recently made headlines for the best reason.
Khrystyana is known for her body-positive, and at times lighthearted, Instagram posts. My personal favorite is when she celebrated her stomach rolls with rap lyrics! She has also candidly shared her experience as a former straight-size model to over 86,000 followers, so she's very open about her experience in the industry.
Like Khrystyana's runway show, ANTM is becoming more inclusive, since this is the first year that there is no age limit.
“This is in alignment with me always wanting to break down barriers when it comes to beauty and acceptance. Why are we so caught up in this number?” Banks said to EW. The show has slowly included models of various sizes on its show, so it's exciting to see models onscreen that will (somewhat) represent those watching.
