It’s been more than a decade since Eva Marcille became a household name after winning America’s Next Top Model, and now the 31-year-old says she wants to host the VH1 reboot of the model competition.
In an interview with theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon, Marcille talked about her return to TV in the upcoming BET docuseries About The Business, but she didn’t shy away from revealing her ambitions to head up the show that in 2003 made her famous.
“[I] should be the host,” she said when asked to weigh in on the news of ANTM being rebooted. “Tyra… she can be a mom. That takes a lot of time and work, I’ll tell you that.”
Last year, America’s Next Top Model ended its 22 season run on the CW network, but luckily for fans, VH1 announced yesterday that the show will return to New York City for a reinvented debut.
Tyra Banks added, “After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn. I will continue as Executive Producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host. I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”
Be sure to checkout the premiere of Marcille’s All About The Business tonight at 10/9c on BET.
