November 26, 2007 (Burbank, California) - International supermodel Paulina Porizkova has joined The CW's AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL cycle 10 as a new panel judge, where she will conduct regular weekly evaluations of top model participants.

"We are thrilled to have Paulina as a part of this cycle's judging panel. The show and participants will benefit a great deal from her vast modeling knowledge and expertise," said Ken Mok, Executive Producer of AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL.

Twiggy, who has been a part of AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL since cycle 5 is leaving due to scheduling conflicts. "We would like to thank Twiggy for her great contributions to the show. Having an icon like Twiggy lend us her considerable expertise has elevated our show to a whole new level. We wish her well in her endeavors and hope to collaborate with her in future cycles of ANTM as well as other projects."

Porizkova was chosen twice by People magazine as one of the Fifty Most Beautiful People in the world, in 1990 and 1992. Harper's Bazaar magazine named her one of its ten most beautiful women in 1992. American Photo magazine in its first issue declared her to be the model of the 1980s. Porizkova has graced the covers of hundreds of magazines worldwide for more than two decades, including appearances on Vogue, ELLE, Harper's Bazaar, Self, Cosmopolitan and Glamour. She began modeling at the age of 15 and quickly rose to the top of her profession.

In addition, Porizkova has a long list of film credits including "Her Alibi," opposite Tom Selleck, "Arizona Dreams," opposite Johnny Depp, "People I Know," opposite Al Pacino, "Second Best," with Joe Pantoliano, the independent comedy "Knots," with John Stamos, and many others. Porizkova was recently seen on "Dancing With The Stars" and wrote a novel entitled "A Model Summer" for Hyperion books. Porizkova is represented by management company?One Entertainment and attorney Peter Thall.

The judging panel for cycle 10 will again be led by Tyra Banks and will also include runway expert J. Alexander and renowned fashion photographer Nigel Barker. As always, special guest judges will appear to critique within his or her area of expertise.

Participants live together and ferociously vie for the grand prize, competing in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp. The participants' abilities are tested each week as they strive to master the runway and fashion photo shoots, perfect publicity skills and learn the business aspects of becoming a supermodel, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance of the AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL cameras.

AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL is produced by 10 by 10 Entertainment, in association with Bankable Productions. Tyra Banks is the creator and executive producer along with Ken Mok ("Making the Band") and Daniel Soiseth ("Hell's Kitchen").
