The CW has set a Feb. 25 premiere date for the 12th cycle of "America's Next Top Model."

Still The CW's most-watched show, "America's Next Top Model" will air on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET and will encore on Fridays at 9 p.m. The series averaged 4.35 million viewers per episode in its most recent cycle.

The show's general creative team remains intact, with Tyra Banks hosting Jay Manuel directing photo shoots, J. Alexander doing runway and mentoring. And, once again, the judging panel will consist of Ms. J., Tyra, "noted" photographer Nigel Barker and well-preserved supermodel Paulina Porizkova.

The 13 contestants for the new season follow "America's Next Top Model" tradition, which is to say that they're all tall, skinny and, unlike last installment, none of them appear to have extraneous male genitalia. Their occupations range from familiar standbys like "student" and "aspiring model" to "loss prevention representative" and "non-profit organizer." They have whimsical and creative names like Fo and Aminat and one of them even enters the competition at the near-geriatric age of 25.
