For fans who’ve wondered what’s happened to their favorite “America’s Next Top Model” contestants who didn’t end up on top, you may be seeing them again on cycle 17 of the series.
Model hopefuls from previous seasons return for the upcoming cycle. The 14 wannabes, many of whom have modeling careers, will learn more about what it takes to take their careers to the next level.
“It’s about taking 15 minutes of fame that came and went and how do you bring it back and sustain it beyond just modeling. You have to be able to host. You have to be able to model. You have to be able to act. We’re looking for the whole package,” Tyra told “Access Hollywood.”
Among the returning competitors are Isis, known for undergoing a gender reassignment surgery, Bre, who fans may have seen in commercials for Ambi and other popular products, and Camille, who’s probably best known for her—ahem—strong personality.
The season premieres September 14.
