After weeks of speculation, Bryanboy is indeed joining the cast of America’s Next Top Model.

WWD reported today that sources close to the blogger have confirmed he will be joining the revamped ANTM lineup alongside model Rob Evans, publicist Kelly Cutrone (who’s already got one season under her belt) and celebrity stylist Johnny Wujek, who styles Katy Perry and Rachel Bilson.

After Tyra Banks axed her three long-standing judges Jay Manuel, Nigel Barker and J. Alexander, Page Six had reported rumours of Bryanboy, whose real name is Bryan Grey Yambao, filling one of their spots.

“I love Tyra and ANTM—I think it would be amazing to make a cameo (hello Andre! hello Franca!) but no, nothing is in the works as of now. This is the first time I heard of this,” he had told Fashionista at the time. Whether or not he was actually unaware of the offer, he’s fully on board now.

“Excited with my new role on cycle 19 of America’s next top model,” he posted on his Facebook wall this morning, and the effusive congratulatory tweets from the likes of DKNY PR Girl and IFB are already rolling in.

It will be interesting to see how this blogging sensation pans out on the small screen once the new season starts up!
