If you liked the first “America’s Next Top Model” cycle with guys, wait until Cycle 21 really gets going — it’s a lot more dramatic and a lot sexier, promises judge Kelly Cutrone.
“To be honest, last season I was like,’Are you kidding me? How can you have so many hot kids of the opposite sex in the same house and no one’s hooking up?’ This just a dis to young people everywhere,” she tells Zap2it.
The aspiring models were all locked in a house together with very little access to the outside world, but still there was just one (sort of innocent) showmance in the bunch.
“It’s the one time in your life you don’t have to work, you have no texts, there’s nothing else to do. You get free alcohol and you’re getting paid to model. What more do you want? I didn’t get it,” Cutrone says.
Thankfully, the casting department recruited a bunch more single and ready to mingle
“This season is good because the girls are a little spicier and the boys get sucker-punched a lot quicker. There’s some interesting play between the girls and the guys.”
Of course, Cutrone and her fellow judges aren’t really privy to the in-house dynamics but information does leak out to them during the judging sessions.
“We don’t ever get to see everything that happens in the house but for sure I think it’s a lot more drama this season. It’s a good season. The cast was really good and there are some shockers. We’d hear things on the judging panel and we’d be like, ‘What?’ There’s a lot of those shocker moments.”
“America’s Next Top Model” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
