Are you model material?

What about your boyfriend? Is he a hottie too?

I'm not asking for myself silly. Tyra Banks wants to know. I swear.

This year the casting call for cycle 20 of CW's "America's Next Top Model" will include - for the first time - boys as well as girls competing in catwalk capers.

Now here's the hook-up: Click here and scroll to the bottom of the page to enter a sweepstakes where if you win, you skip the long-ass line and sashay your fine self right in and see the judges first.

And in case you're wondering how to make the best impression, or if you just have some questions about the whole process, then I'll be hosting a Facebook chat on Wednesday, Jan. 2 starting at 4 p.m. Hey, before you start throwing shade, you should know that I was a casting call judge for three seasons and every time I got at least one girl on the show. So there.
