The trailer reveals squabbles between the contestants, a medical emergency requiring an ambulance and, of course, plenty of tears.

“I’m not looking for a traditional model,” Banks says in the clip. “And I’m not looking for a social media model. I’m looking for both!”

Ora bluntly tells one modeling hopeful in the promo, “This photo did you no justice whatsoever.”

Nyle DiMarco nabbed the show’s top prize for cycle 22 in December 2015. He went on to win Dancing With the Stars‘ mirrorball trophy in season 22 earlier this year.

America’s Next Top Model cycle 23 premieres on VH1 Monday, December 12, at 10 p.m. ET.
