After 22 incredible cycles, America's Next Top Model was cancelled by The CW, but Tyra Banks herself has said she'd love for the show to find another home. Lifetime is the obvious home for ANTM. The series began as a way for Tyra to empower and transform young women into industry-ready fashion models. Lifetime has always provided quality programming for the modern woman. Right now The CW is focused on bringing us more superheroes, but Lifetime continues to expand its reality programming.

Lifetime has already successfully transitioned one reality competition to their network. Project Runway has thrived since the move to Lifetime. In fact, several ANTM contestants have gone on to become models on Project Runway. It would be natural to further tie the two shows in together. Crossover episodes would be magical.

Project Runway isn't the only show with crossover potential. It's easy to imagine an ANTM photo shoot that incorporates Little Women:LA. Dance Moms could be involved in a posing challenge. Lifetime may even be able to snag some of the ANTM personalities for cameos on their edgy drama, UnREAL. There is so much potential for ANTM to not only continue on Lifetime, but to grow to new heights.

The last 3 cycles of ANTM have allowed male contestants, but most fans of the show would prefer to see ANTM return to its roots with all female contestants. Lifetime has the ability to revamp the show to fit any branding they need. ANTM fans stuck with the show throughout several revamps (most were not for the better), so one more isn't likely to scare them away. Tyra has said she would consider returning to host, but that she would also be open to a new host taking over. Even if Tyra can't return to host, there are 22 past winners who could take over that have been taught to smize for the camera by the smize queen herself.

Lifetime, please have America's Next Top Model booty tooch over to your network. Not only does it align with your current programming, but it would fill a void your schedule is lacking. You already have a built-in fan base that will not only follow the show to your network, but would be happy to see the changes you make to it. These signatures are proof that we would love to see ANTM continue on in the hopes of becoming Lifetime's next top reality show.

Fierce and Love,

ANTM Fans
