Barker has been named host of “The Face,” a modeling competition set to premiere on Oxygen in 2013. He’ll be joined by models Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha, who will lead teams of would-be models toward the goal of becoming the spokesperson for a well-known brand (a deal with said brand isn’t in place yet).
Kurkova and Rocha, incidentally, have also appeared on “ANTM” as guest judges.
Barker was a fixture on “America’s Next Top Model” until the spring, when the show cleaned house and parted ways with him, long-time creative director Jay Manuel and judge/runway coach J. Alexander.
“Top Model,” meanwhile, will feature new judges Kelly Cutrone and Rob Evans and creative director Johnny Wujek when it returns to The CW on Aug. 24.
