‘America’s Next Top Model’ back

Tyra Banks is back with a newer, younger look. After the host gave the ax to fan favorites Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander, she brings newcomers Rob Evans, a top male model, fashion blogger Bryanboy and creative director Johnny Wujek to join returning judge Kelly Cutrone. This season - the show’s 19th - has a “college edition” theme. (All of the hopefuls are enrolled in college.) No contestants from Maryland, Washington or Virginia, but the new mix of fashion industry folks is bound to attract a couple of interested viewers. Watch America’s Next Top Model on Fridays at 8 p.m. on the CW.ERIC LIEBOWITZ, BALTIMORE SUN
