Twiggy’s Out, Paulina’s In

Paulina Porizkova to Take Over for Twiggy on America’s Next Top Model as Judge

Strange things are afoot over at ANTM.

Twiggy will not be appearing as a judge on the upcoming cycle 10. Instead, Paulina Porizkova will take her place as the resident washed-up-model-who-makes-Tyra-Banks’-career-look-particularly-stunning-in-comparison. From the press release:

“We are thrilled to have Paulina as a part of this cycle’s judging panel. The show and participants will benefit a great deal from her vast modeling knowledge and expertise,” said Ken Mok, Executive Producer of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL.

Twiggy, who has been a part of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL since cycle 5 is leaving due to scheduling conflicts. “We would like to thank Twiggy for her great contributions to the show. Having an icon like Twiggy lend us her considerable expertise has elevated our show to a whole new level. We wish her well in her endeavors and hope to collaborate with her in future cycles of ANTM as well as other projects.”

Scheduling conflicts?


Word on the street is Twigster didn’t want to be based in NYC, where cycle 10 will be filmed.
