Last year, Tyra Banks donned heavy padding to experience the world as a 350-pound woman. Now the talk-show host has gone undercover as a man in a rapper's posse.

Banks, 32, was stripped of her supermodel looks to become a guy for an episode of "The Tyra Banks Show" that is set to air November 13.

"I actually had a suit thing that went over me that made me have pecs and, like, a six-pack," Banks, who underwent five hours of preparation for the transformation, told AP Radio in a recent interview.

"And I was so muscular that it covered all of that breast tissue underneath it. We had to give me like, a heavier brow bone and a man's chin and bone structure."

Though she became manly enough to infiltrate Chingy's entourage, her voice was a giveaway.

"Chingy kept saying that my voice was way too high and I had to fix it, so I would go, like, 'You know, what's up? ... You know, you lookin' kinda good,' " said Banks, speaking in a low, gruff tone.

Banks' get-up fooled a young woman, who gave her a bit of a surprise.
