EVA MARCILLE has expressed her desire to host the new series of America’s Next Top Model after the show’s creator, supermodel Tyra Banks announced she would not be returning.
The 31-year-old model, who won the show in 2003 and went onto land international fame and campaigns with L’Oreal and Covergirl, told The Grio, “I should be the host.”
She said Tyra, who welcomed her first son earlier this year, could concentrate on her new role knowing the hit show was in good hands.
“Tyra [Banks]… she can be a mum. That takes a lot of time and work, I’ll tell you that,” she added.
Last year ANTM ended it’s 22 season run on the CW network, but VH1 then announced that the show will return to New York City for a reinvented debut.
Tyra Banks, the founder of the shower and its former host, said: “After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn.
“I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavours, so I want to find a new host. I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show.”
She added: Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”
