America’s Next Top Model returns to New York City for Season 23. While show creator Tyra Banks will make appearances here and there, singer Rita Ora is taking over as host. The three judges by her side are supermodel Ashley Graham, celebrity stylist Law Roach (Zendaya, Celine Dion), and Paper Magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliott.
Elliott says he wanted to be an actor when a kid so he moved to New York and attended NYU. During his first summer in the city, he became an intern at Paper Magazine and eventually moved up the ladder and ultimately became the chief creative officer which means overseeing the magazine, the website, and the agency. Referring to the Breaking the Internet with Kim Kardashian issue, Elliott says, “It was a really big moment for us. Over 70 million people came to website just to see those images.” America’s Next Top Model airs Mondays at 10pm on VH1.
