The twenty-first cycle of America’s Next Top Model, hosted by Tyra Banks, premiered on August 18, 2014 and it is the 15th season to air on The CW. Like the previous cycle, it was the 2nd season in a row to feature both male and female contestants. Tyra Banks and Kelly Cutrone retained their positions on the judging panel. Runway coach J. Alexander returned to the judging panel, replacing former judge Rob Evans while Johnny Wujek, creative director since Cycle 19, was succeeded by photographer Yu Tsai. In keeping with the last two cycles, social media is a factor in eliminations, with public voting taking place on the show’s official page.
The semifinalists were revealed on the America’s Next Top Model Instagram page while the fourteen finalists were revealed when voting began.
The international destination for this cycle is Seoul, South Korea. Five of the episodes are filmed in Seoul, one of which features James of Royal Pirates, and the finale will have guest appearances from K-pop girl group 2NE1, boy band BTOB, actor and model Lee Soo-hyuk and fashion designer Lie Sang Bong.
