Which Pop Starlet Would Tyra Banks Want On 'ANTM'?


By Amy Wilkinson

Tyra Bank's long-running runway competition series, "America's Next Top Model," sashays back to The CW for its 17th cycle tomorrow night (9/8 C), and in a juicy twist, this season reunites some of the show's most-talked about contestants for an all-star stomp out. Who will be runway road kill? You'll just have to tune in to find out!

But when we caught up with Ms. Banks recently to talk about "ANTM"'s latest iteration, we couldn't help but wonder—if given the opportunity—which starlets she'd like to see strut their stuff on her series.

Read on and watch the video above to find out who!

"There's a couple of people," she said. "I think Katy Perry has the spunk, that 'You're not going to get me down and I'm gonna rock this, I'm gonna do this' attitude. She seems like the kind of person that would compete and talk back to judges, which gets on our nerves but also makes for good TV. So I'm like, 'God, she's interesting.' So I think she'd be really good. She'd be really photogenic."

We couldn't agree more, Tyra! After all, the "Teenage Dream" singer has plenty of experience performing in craycray outfits (or not much of anything at all).

Do you think Katy would make a good "America's Next Top Model" contestant?
