'America's Next Top Model': Cycle 11's transgender Isis King gets her own promo -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As you probably know, Isis King – the memorable, self-identified transgender contestant from cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model – is a part of the cast coming back to be judged by Tyra Banks and Co. for the show’s All-Stars edition premiering Sept. 14 on The CW.

Isis broke ground when she appeared on the show in 2008 because she is transgender – the first such contestant ever on Top Model. (Isis was born a man, but Banks herself paid for Isis’ sexual reassignment surgery, completed in 2009.)

Isis finished Cycle 11 in tenth place, but she could still be a force in the latest outing this fall. EW has your exclusive first look at the promo touting Isis’ return – complete with totally intense eyes, as you can see above – to the competition.
