Rita Ora Comforts ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Contestants in New Clip

A revamped America’s Next Top Model is gearing up for its return to television next month, and the show has released a short clip of the forthcoming season, which will see Rita Ora take over hosting duties from Tyra Banks.

The 30-second video — which you can check out above — shows snippets of Ora acting as mentor to the group of contestants over the course of the season.

“The approach I wanted to have as a host and judge to the girls is what my career stands for at this moment in time, which is being a businesswoman and being able to do multiple things at the same time,” Ora said of her new gig back in July via E! News, “whether it’s music or shooting (magazine covers) and being in movies and designing clothes.”

Ora will be joined by her fellow judges: model Ashley Graham, stylist Law Roach, and Drew Elliott, the chief creative officer of Paper magazine.

Months after initially announcing the show’s Season 22 would be its last, ANTM host Tyra Banks announced it had been revived and would move to VH1.

“After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn,” Tyra said in a statement, according to E! News. “I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host. I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”

The new-and-improved America’s Next Top Model will air on December 12th on VH1 at 10/9c.
