For its 17th cycle, America's Next Top Model
is giving 14 fan favorites from previous seasons a second chance at the title – including Isis King from season 11, the show's only transgender contestant.
Other familiar faces will include Bianca Golden from cycle 9, Angelea Preston from cycle 14, and Alexandria Everett from cycle 16 – surely making for a combustible season of drama.
The new cycle will also feature quite the collection of celebrity judges, including Kathy Griffin and La Toya Jackson, as well as Ashlee Simpson
, Kristin Cavallari
, Nicki Minaj, and Tyson Beckford.
The core team of Tyra Banks
, André Leon Talley, Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander remains unchanged.
The new season premieres Sept. 14 (9 p.m. ET) on the CW.
