"Germany's Next Topmodel" (often abbreviated to GNTM) is a German reality television show which pits contestants against each other in a variety of competitions to determine who will win title of "Germany's Next Topmodel" as well as a modelling contract with the IMG talent agency in hopes of a promising career start in the modeling industry.

Based on the concept of Tyra Banks's "America's Next Top Model" series, the show is hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, who also serves as the lead judge and executive producer of the show.

The show is currently being made into a Nintendo DS and PC game. [ [http://www.nintendo-online.de/news.php?id=1342 Germany’s Next Topmodel für Nintendo DS angekündigt! - Nintendo-Online.de ] ]

Show format

Each season of "Germany's Next Topmodel" has 10 to 13 episodes and starts with 12-19 contestants. Each episode, one contestant is eliminated, though a double/triple elimination or no elimination was given by consensus of the judging panel.

Makeovers are administered to contestants early in the season (usually after the first or second elimination in the finals).

Winners were Lena Gercke from Marburg, Hesse, Barbara Meier from Amberg, Bavaria and Jenny Hof from Rodgau, Hesse. Judge Peyman Armin said Gercke is very commercial, Meier's strength is editorial posing and Hof's is runway walking.

Differences between "ANTM" and "GNTM"

While the US American version's season premieres (except cycles 1 and 2) start with thirty-something semi-finalists and their cut-down to a batch of ten to fourteen contestants, "Germany's Next Topmodel" season premieres begin with highlights from the auditions of 100 candidates (cycles 1 and 2) and 120 candidates (cycle 3) respectively.

The panel challenge in front of the judges on "America's Next Top Model" is almost always replaced by a runway walk in front of the judges on the German show.

In the elimination process on "America's Next Top Model", host Tyra Banks hands out the photograph of each contestant that are safe in order of merit.
The bottom two of each episode are called to stand before Banks and are judged individually. The call-out order does play a major role in determining who this week's best contestant was – quite in contrast to "Germany's Next Topmodel" where the call-out order does not say anything about the quality of the contestants' performance. Moreover, they are called out one by one while the others are waiting in the backstage lobby. The US contestants are all present.

The final five or six contestants travel to an international destination on the US American show while Germany's version is notcomittal about the number of journeys abroad; cycle 1 went abroad two times, cycle 2 did so four times and cycle 3 went to five different international countries.

On "America's Next Top Model" the final two remaining models compete in a runway, and the winner is chosen in the judging room. On "Germany's Next Topmodel", the final three contestants compete in a runway and a photo shoot in front of live audience in Cologne, Germany before the winner is revealed. The final show is recorded the afternoon before its broadcast.
