Tyra Banks knows how to keep America's Next Top Model fresh!
As the show celebrates its 21st season, fans are quickly falling in love with contestant Chantelle Brown-Young, a 20-year-old model diagnosed with the skin disorder, vitiligo.
"She's absolutely beautiful," Banks gushed during her visit to E! News Wednesday. "We were looking [for contestants] and I just kept seeing this girl pop up, this beautiful, striking girl."
But instead of finding her through one of the show's nationwide casting calls, Banks took it upon herself to recruit the fan-favorite.
"I reached out to her myself and told my team, ‘Find her! I want her here in a week.'" Lucky for us, the aspiring model agreed to participate and already wowed the judges in the season premiere.
