'ANTM': Will Male and Female Models Hookup?

America's Next Top Model is definitely getting revamped for cycle 20 with the addition of male models into the competition for the first time in the show's 10-year history, and according to judges Tyra Banks and Rob Evans, the potential for hookups between the genetically gifted competitors is pretty much a guarantee given that they're all living in a house together.
"That is one of the stupidest things they could've done. A man and a woman in the house?!," Evans says bluntly to ET's Brooke Anderson when she recently paid a visit to the set. "Because in the real world of modeling -- like, I've been to a female model house before -- and there's signs all over the building, all over the rooms saying, 'No boys allowed, no boys allowed.' Because they know in the real world there's going to be babies everywhere. They don't want that. ... Yeah, man. What do you think happens?," he laughs.
Though according to Tyra, during her earlier modeling days, she definitely didn't let the cute boys distract her!
"Well in my experience -- the model apartments in Milan -- it was guys and girls totally mixed ... totally co-ed. I've told people that I lived in Paris for two years and didn't date one person in Paris.Yeah, I had male models like 'Hey baby, what's your number? Voulez-vous coucher, blah blah, blah.' And I'm like, 'No, I'm going to my Go-See, I'm going to my casting, I'm going to my fashion show.' I've had tons of shoots with male models and they're always hitting and trying."
But judge Kelly Cutrone welcomes the male models with enthusiasm.
"Too bad I'm 47 the first time boys come on the show, and I'm like, getting ready to retire out of fashion," she jokes.
She does admit to having a favorite in the competition already -- Marvin, who sold his entire sneaker collection just to buy a ticket to come to the competition, and has an amazing story growing up with a father who came to the U.S. illegally from Mexico in the back of a trunk of a car.
"I love him, he's really really cute," she says. " ... He's kind of my favorite. He's really the great story for me."

America's Next Top Model airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
