Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Say goodbye to long-standing America's Next Top Model stars J. Alexander, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker. The New York Post is reporting that contracts for the three mentors will not be renewed for season 19, as Tyra Banks is looking to shake things up on the show. Apparently she is on the hunt fresh blood in the form of bloggers and fashion insiders "with a strong web presence," and according to the Post, this includes none other than everyone's favorite kilt-clad Filipino, Bryan Boy. The street-style blogger is well known for his eccentric fashion sense, unfiltered opinions, and occasionally X-rated Twitter feed, so that should be... something.

Were that to happen (and, good God, we hope it does), Bryan Boy would be joining PR maven Kelly Cutrone on the judges panel for season 19. She confirmed with us in an interview last February that she will be returning next season, and, of course, bringing all her famous tough love with her. Let's just hope the poor models can handle all this straight talk.
