    :woot: The Top Model franchise is coming to New Zealand. I personally love to watch America's Next Top Model, but I think the shows top priority is not to make a "Top model", but rather entertain viewers, therefore make money. I am still super excited about seeing what potential is out there, bearing in mind New Zealand has only about 4.3million people and I think the female population is generally short compared to other countries. Also, the minimium age is 16 (18 in US version) and minimuim height is 170cm ;) The official site is www.tv3.co.nz/TVShows/Reality/NewZealandsNextTopModel

    From looking at the judges I think this version of Top Model will be slightly more "business like" than the US version as all three judges work in the industry, but there should be lots of entertainment as I have heard that Colin is a character ^_^

    Just watched the first episode and I'm impressed. I think this show really hit the mark with its casting. Generally, I see some really fresh faces and great bodies, or at least "workable" with some development. It's not as rag-tag/"let's build a model from scratch" like ANTM (but of course that's their MO). Even some of the girls that didn't make the cut would have been decent choices.

    Christobelle is kind of an immediate favourite as she reminds me of Zippora Seven. Laura and Victoria are quite good too.

    I really liked the girl with the long red hair, whatever her name was.

    Unfortunately the videos of episode one on Youtube have been removed due to a copyright issue, but the full episode is available here for NZ viewers only: http://www.tv3.co.nz/NZNTM-0101/tabid/742/articleID/60380/cat/641/Default.aspx ..hopefully this will be posted on Youtube soon for everyone outside of NZ to view :)

    My initial favourites are Christobelle :heart:(striking similarity to Zippora IMO), Rebecca Rose, Ajoh, Rhiannon and Victoria. But I will wait and see.... What are your thoughts? predictions?

    Sadly the Youtube clips have been removed :cry: :(
    On tonights episode a few girls caught my attention and surprised me. Teryl Leigh looks strong and fierce; Christobelle is amazing and like a natural in front of the camera; Laura has strong potential; Rhiannon is simply amazing - looks like a top high fashion model (but her photograph wasn't great); Ruby is beautiful but needs to lose a bit of weight as the judges said; Victoria is good and Sarah aswell.

    i watched this today. The standard of girls is suprisingly good, however the accents! As a kiwi I'm embarrassed. It sounds so unintelligent
