Put on your favorite wig and celebrate America’s Next Top Model fans, because Tyra Banks is bringing back Miss J Alexander as an official judge for Cycle 21. After several seasons of poor ratings, ANTM switched things up last year for Cycle 20, firing Miss J, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker as judges. Now, it looks like one of those cast-offs has been rehired. In a statement for the CW, Tyra said, “His name says it all. I’ve missed ‘Miss J’ and am elated he’s back…I know Top Model fans will rejoice!” Miss J will join Tyra, the so-called PR maven and miserable ogre Kelly Cutrone and us – the viewers – on the judging panel for the second boys versus girls cycle this summer. What does that mean for male supermodel Rob Evans? Not sure yet. If he’s gone, I will definitely miss the eye candy – but things just weren’t the same without Miss J, ya know?
Welcome back, Miss J!
