New York: An Ameriacn model and a talk show host Tyra Banks reportedly dating a man from Bali.

"It's a total long-distance romance. But it's a big deal," a website quoted a source as saying.

Banks had parted ways with longtime boyfriend John Utendahl last year and had gone to China shortly before the holidays to tape the latest season of "America's Next Top Model".

"She met her new man while traveling and after flying back to New York, she turned right around and flew back to Bali to spend the holidays with him," the source added.
