  America's Next Top Model (abrievated as ANTM and Top Model) is an American reality television series and interactive competition in which a number of aspiring models compete for the title of "America's Next Top Model" and a chance begin their career in the modeling industry.

The series is the originator of the international Top Model franchise. Over 30 versions of the series have been produced internationally.


Each season of America's Next Top Model has from 9–16 episodes and starts with 10–16 contestants. Contestants are judged weekly on their overall appearance, participation in challenges, and best shot from that week's photo shoot; each episode, one contestant is eliminated, though in rare cases a double elimination or non-elimination was given by consensus of the judging panel. Makeovers are administered to contestants early in the season (usually after the first or second elimination in the finals) and a trip to an international destination is scheduled about two-thirds of the way through the season.

The series employs a panel of judges who critique contestants' progress throughout the competition. Most cycles featured Tyra Banks as the head judge, alongside varying line-ups of other judges.

The most drastic change occurred when the series was revived in 2016. Cycle 23 was the first cycle to not feature Banks on the panel, as she was replaced by Rita Ora. However Banks later returned the following cycle.
