Pinoy Fashion Icon Bryan Boy is new judge on America's Next Top Model!

Bryan Grey Yambao, more commonly known as Bryanboy, will join the cast of America's Next Top Model.

The 31-year-old fashion blogger, who launched his site in 2004, wrote on his Facebook this morning: 'Excited with my new role on cycle 19 of America's Next Top Model'.

Although the CW network is yet to confirm how the blogger, who had lived in the Philippines, will be involved, he has already relocated to Los Angeles in order to film the reality series created by model Tyra Banks.

He posted a photograph of his new Los Angeles apartment on Twitter yesterday.

The new signing follows news that Ms Banks, 38, dumped the show's previous judges, fashion photographer Nigel Barker, runway coach J. Alexander and make-up artist Jay Manuel, last month.

She told Access Hollywood: 'We reached a point, where we feel the show needs a new boost.'

While many TV stars, such as Brooke Bourke and Katherine Heigl, have turned to blogging after building successful careers, it is the first time a blogger will become a TV star.

His appointment had been hinted at for months.

Mr Grey Yambao, who was raised in Manila, declined an interview with The Observer in February because he was not able to participate in any 'profiles pending a project with another media outlet' that 'would be developed/released by this summer'.

The new season of America's Next Top Model is about to commence filming in Los Angeles shortly.

Sources close to the blogger had told WWD yesterday that the blogger had signed a contract with the show and was 'en route to Los Angeles with a one-way air ticket'.
He will join new cast members Rob Evans, a U.S. model and Johnny Wujek, a stylist for Katy Perry.

Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone will also return as a judge for a second season.
