The new season of America's Next Top Model premiered on January 8, marking its 24th cycle. In a preview of tonight's episode posted by PEOPLE, a few of the contestants get into a heated debate about feminism. Liberty Netuschil of Idaho and Kyla Coleman of Washington lead the argument, with others joining.

The battle over feminist ideology starts with Kyla, who recounts an early memory where she was not able to play baseball with the boys. "That was the first time I realized boys and girls aren't equal," she said.


Liberty, who ties her beliefs to being a Republican, disagrees. "I'm still a woman. I'm very much different than a man, so to be treated the same as him sometimes I don't agree with," she says, responding to Kyla. In a solo moment to the camera, she adds, "I do believe in a lot of things Republicans talk about and what they're representing."

In Kyla's solo moment to the camera, she makes a jab at Liberty, and says, "Liberty... I don't know if she thinks before she says things."

The preview ends with Kyla giving Liberty the finger. You can watch the full video on PEOPLE.

There are 15 contestants this season with four judges: Tyra Banks, plus-size model Ashley Graham, Paper Magazine's Drew Elliott, and stylist Law Roach. Get to know a little more about Kyla and Liberty below the cut.

Liberty Netuschil moved to Los Angeles at 18 to pursue either radiology or modeling, according to her personal website. (Hint: she stuck with modeling). She later found success as a blogger before landing on America's Next Top Model. She's earned a ton of buzz for being ANTM's pro-Trump contestant, but has since claimed her views have changed. In a lengthy Instagram post, she writes, "I am pro America and I will not stand by someone who, in the beginning, I thought was a positive change for us."

There isn't too much information online about Kyla Coleman, which is refreshingly odd for a TV personality and model. The Olympian, a local news outlet based out of Olympia, WA, published an article saying the ANTM contestant had graduated from River Ridge High School in Coleman's hometown in 2015. Apart from that, what you see on her Instagram is what you get.

Tonight's episode will air at 8 p.m. EST on VH1.

President Donald Trump's administration has tried for over a year to wield the United States census to bolster its anti-immigrant platform, rather than getting an accurate count of the country's populace to better allocate its resources.

The administration has long sought to add a citizenship question, despite warnings that it could result in underreporting of the population and the targeting of immigrants.

According to reporting from The Tampa Bay Times, Republican party is once again using the census to bolster its interests.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that Donald Trump was enraged at the news that Russia was working to elect him once again in 2020.

President Donald Trump replaced former Acting Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats with longtime Trump ally and ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell. The move came after Trump rebuffed Coats for announcing Russia's ongoing attempts to interfere in the 2020 election.

Grenell was deemed vastly unqualified for the position, to the point that officials had to assure Americans that the new Director of National Intelligence would be announced soon.

Trump said he was considering his longtime ally in Congress, Representative Doug Collins (R-GA), for the position...but there's just one problem.
