Tyra Has One Photo in Her Hand and It's of Bryanboy: Blogger Joining Cast of "Top Model"
May 25, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
Tyra Banks is having a boy! A Bryanboy to be exact. The Filipino blogger has packed his bags and is off to L.A. to join the
800th 19th cycle of America's Next Top Model.
Bryanboy, real name Bryan Grey Yambao, joins Kelly Cutrone -- who will be returning for her second season as a judge -- as well as male model Rob Evans and Katy Perry's stylist, Johnny Wujek, to the cast of Top Model.
You may remember that Tyra canned longtime cast members Jay Manuel, Ms. J. Alexander and noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker last month, at which point Bryanboy's name was bandied about as a possible replacement.
Sources close to Bryanboy confirmed that he has signed a contract with the CBS television property and is one his way to the west coast with a one-way ticket and -- one would assume -- trunkloads of fur, sequins, oversized shades and silly hats. [WWD]
