The executive producer of America's Next Top Model has promised that fans will see more of Tyra Banks in the new cycle.
The 15th season kicked off last night as 32 hopefuls were whittled down to just 14 who will compete for coveted prizes including a photoshoot with Italian Vogue and the cover of its supplement Beauty In Vogue.
"She wanted to spend more time with the girls this year on the show, so you'll find Tyra doing a lot more drop-ins with the girls where she just kind of shows up at the house, sits down with the girls, and talks to them one-on-one about their issues or about issues that are important to her," producer Ken Wok told Entertainment Weekly.
"Whether it's healthy eating or having strong self-esteem, having a good sense of your own body. She gives them a lot of advice this year."
Banks recently said that she is "excited" that the new season will be partly taking place in Italy because that is where she began her own career as a model.
America's Next Top Model continues next Wednesday at 8/7c on The CW.
