A former model, actress and TV personality Tyra Banks is back to co-judging "America's Next Top Model" with the return of the popular TV show in its new episode run.
The hit TV show is now running in its 24th episode with Tyra Banks, celebrity stylist Law Roach, plus-size model Ashley Graham, and Paper magazine creative director Drew Elliott as judges on the show that decides the new face of the season.
Before making her comeback, Tyra was asked by the show makers to try nine new thinsg she has never tried before for her fans.
The 44-year-old took on the challenge and filmed herself trying out things like using cocoa powder as makeup ingredient -- she used it as eyeshadow, lipstick and contour powder, did yoga with a goat, used plastic doll hand as makeup brush along with six other activities on the list.
While using cocoa powder as a makeup product, she revealed that she "doesn't like chocolates" and went on to spread it over her eyelids to "intensify her smokey eye". She used the powder to blend it into the hollwos of her cheekbones to contour and then dunk her lips into the chocolate to mattify her lipstick.
Tyra is hosting the show after a break last year when she passed on the torch to singer Rita Ora.
The TV personality had hosted the show for 22 years.
Tyra returns to the show with a slew of important changes that mark a new beginning including the most important change of bringing together a diverse group -- women of all shapes, sizes and colors including multiple plus-size models, a grandmother, a woman living with alopecia, and a US President Donald Trump supporter.
In a promo for the new season, Tyra was seen saying: "America's Next Top Model has changed the definition of beauty and empowered women when they needed it the most."
Season 24 of America's Next Top Model premiered Tuesday on VH1.
