The recently started 21st installment of ANTM has one special reason to tune in every week: a beautiful, striking model with vitiligo is among several contestants to compete for the honor of being next 'It Girl' in the modeling world. Chantelle Brown-Young from Toronto has radically changed the show that was essentially the same for the last 11 years, which gathered just over 1 million viewers on the first season night.
