Tyra Banks’ Show ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Premiere; Harvard Grad’s Model Competition Features Guys and Girls! [VIDEO]

Tonight, cycle 20 of the wildly popular "America's Next Top Model" (ANTM) is premiering.  You can expect the usual crazy photo shoots and wacky challenges, but this is the first ever co-ed season! These guys are gorgeous, but do they have what it to takes to take on the women?

"The first ever 'Guys and Girls' edition will have eight men and eight women living under one roof to battle it out to earn the prestigious title of 'America's Next Top Model,'" according to the CW website

"I have been wanting guys on Top Model for so so long...and finally my boss said 'yes," Tyra said in an interview with ABC.

This season also promises to have "more than a little opportunity for rivalry, flirtation and romance," according to the show's website.  Obviously, it means there could be more drama, too. 

The ABC interviewer told Banks, "I love that some of the male models have been surprisingly more drama queen-ish than the female contestestants."

"They are drama queens, they're actually crying in front of me when I'm saying that one of them might go home...they're storming off camera...having fights with the girl models like 'that's why you're a catalogue model, that's why Tyra doesn't like your poses,'" Banks said.

So it looks like there will be more catfights, makeout sessions, and maybe even more freak-outs from the entertainingly crazy Tyra! Hopefully there won't be any dreckitude or POTLEDOM.

The prize this year includes a $100,000 national ad campaign with GUESS, a fashion feature in Nylon Magazine, as well as a modeling contract with Next Model Management.  Now that's something to "smize" about.

It's old news that Nigel and both Jays aren't on the show this season, but the ones that will be there Tyra Banks (of course), fashion public relations maven Kelly Cutrone, and former boxer and international male supermodel Rob Evans.  Stylest Johnny Wujek will return as photo shoot creative consultant, and fashion blogger Byranboy will return as the social media correspondent, which means there will be more room for fan feedback!

The fierce two hour premiere starts tonight at 8/7c on the CW.
