Finale from Berlin and Los Angeles
The finale of this year’s season of “Germany’s next top model” will look different than in previous years due to the ongoing corona pandemic. Juror Heidi Klum (46, “Making the Cut”) cannot travel to Berlin and is therefore added from Los Angeles. The otherwise spectacular show will take place in 2022 in a classic television studio without an audience with a safe distance and with a smaller production team. Four girls from Germany and Austria will fight for victory on Thursday (May 21, 8:15 p.m., ProSieben and Joyn ).
Jacky (21) from Rheingau-Taunus, Lijana (24) from Kassel, Maureen (20) from Vienna and Sarah (20) from Vorau in Styria still have the chance to win the title “Germany’s next Topmodel 2022”. All four girls are confident of victory in advance. “I’ve had the greatest development: from a shy girl to a confident woman,” emphasizes Sarah. She simply had the “total package”, and on the catwalk she had “never been able to reach the water”. Before the finale, Maureen relies on her “rays that come not only from the outside, but also from the inside”. She always tries to make other people laugh.
And Jacky also wants to finally fulfill his dream of modeling. “Because I love being in front of the camera, taking on roles, telling stories or just being myself,” she explains. The 21-year-old also aims to inspire and do good with her reach. Lijana has similar plans. “I want to become ‘Germany’s next top model’ and […] set an example against bullying,” said the 24-year-old from Northern Hesse.
Although she cannot be there in Berlin, “model mom” Heidi Klum is looking forward to finding out who will emerge as the brilliant winner of the casting show this year. “Although I am supposedly far away and will watch live from Los Angeles here, I will not miss anything,” emphasizes the 46-year-old. “Mistakes or weak nerves can burst the dream of victory.”
Despite the limitations that ProSieben faces in the Corona crisis, the season finale promises to be exciting and entertaining. Right from the start, the candidates in futuristic costumes will perform on stage with the ensemble of the Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin – consisting of over 50 artists from the “Vivid Grand Show”. The girls are responsible for the first walk. Your task: to stage your own personality in individual looks. They get support from choreographer Nikeata Thompson (39, “Got to Dance”).
The show also includes designer Philipp Plein (42), star photographer Christian Anwander and “GNTM” veteran Thomas Hayo (51). They challenge the finalists in different challenges. Ex-candidates Klaudia Giez (23), Micaela Schäfer (36), Theresia Fischer (28), Gisele Oppermann (32) and this year’s semi-finalist Tamara (19) have also announced themselves as guests. The “GNTM” second in 2011, Rebecca Mir (28), presented the “Personality Award” in the live show.
The winners of this year’s season are once again receiving attractive prizes: a cover story for the German edition of “Harper’s Bazaar”, a contract with the ONEeins fab agency and a winner’s prize of EUR 100,000.
