America's Next Top Model will see its twentieth cycle this summer - and its first-ever to feature male competitors.

The CW announced Thursday that eight men and eight women have been selected for the upcoming season of the popular TV show, produced and helmed by supermodel-turned-entrepreneur Tyra Banks. The selected group of sixteen will live under the same roof, and compete against each other for the opportunity to become America's Next Top Model.

Two area natives are included in the range of competitors. They include 22-year-old Cory Wade Hindorff who currently resides in Fishtown, and 20-year-old Chlea Ramirez of Bear, Delaware.

The 6' 2'' Hindorff states his occupation as a wedding singer. The self-proclaimed representative of the "androgynous male" in cycle 20 is also a local drag performer according to G Philly. "I'm different, unique and special," he says in his plea video, taking a jab at his male competition by quipping, "And they are meatheads."

The dynamic shift in adding men to the competition is said to create several interesting scenarios involving "rivalry, flirtation and romance," the network shared in its release. Simply put, this could be the CW's version of MTV's Real World, only that it involves real-life, aspiring models.

The winner will receive a $100,000 ad campaign with GUESS, a feature in NYLON, and a modeling contract with Next Model Management.
