Slips, falls and tears: The first catwalk becomes an obstacle course for Heidi’s models

Heidi Klum, 48, selected 31 candidates for the 17th season of “Germany’s Next Top Model”. But which of the women really has what it takes to be a model will only become apparent in the coming weeks. Scenes from the first show already reveal: For some of the participants, the first catwalk will be a great challenge – which not everyone can master gallantly.

Is it the nervousness or the extremely high heels that the prospective models in Greece have to walk the catwalk in? In any case, looking at the first shots, it quickly becomes clear that the walk is by no means as easy as it may seem with Heidi. There are stumbles, stumbles and falls – and not only in front of the presenter, but also guest judge Kylie Minogue, 53. The audience also audibly gasps when there are some dramatic falls. Will the models still skilfully play around the situation or will the run turn into an absolute disaster? Viewers will find out on Thursday, February 3, 2022, at 8:15 p.m. on ProSieben.

In the 17th season of GNTM, a candidate causes a double stir: at 50, Martina is not only one of the best ager models, but also takes part in the casting show with her daughter Lou-Anne, 18 . The first recordings that have now been published on social media and online by “Germany’s Next Top Model” make it clear that the younger participants clearly have to be careful of Martina: Because the 50-year-old was already a successful model.

“I already have modeling experience, but that was a long time ago,” explains the self-employed trainer. “I started working as a model in the early ’90s, […] was very successful in Austria, did campaigns and got around internationally,” says Martina.

An Instagram video with the first scenes from the show proves that. Martina’s expression not only convinces Heidi, but also the guest judges. The walk of the 50-year-old resembles that of a top model, she knows how to play with the clothes and outfits. One thing is certain: Martina can make it very far. However, her greatest wish would be that not only she could gain a lot of experience at GNTM, but also her daughter.

ProSieben announces special broadcast in honor of Thierry Mugler

Even before the start of the 17th season of “Germany’s Next Top Model”, the broadcaster ProSieben announces a special broadcast. On Thursday, January 27, 2022, viewers can watch the first episode of the past season again. It’s an episode that has a special meaning for Heidi Klum, 48, and the casting format.

In 2021, Heidi opened the season together with Thierry Mugler and relied on his trained designer eye when evaluating the aspiring models. Mugler passed away unexpectedly on January 23, 2022 at the age of 73. According to his spokesman, the French fashion designer died “of natural causes”. Now GNTM dedicates a special program to him. The first episode of season 16 will be broadcast at 11:45 p.m.

In February it’s finally that time again: GNTM starts a new season that has never existed before. In the name of diversity, 2022 women of all ages and with different clothing sizes will compete. Whether a curvy model, over 50 or completely tattooed: Heidi Klum, 48, is all about personality and charisma.

A new video posted on Germany’s Next Topmodel’s official Instagram account proves that a candidate definitely brings these traits. There really isn’t anything boring about Lieselotte, 66.

The fans are already enthusiastic about the open and humorous way Lieselotte approaches the talent show. “I practiced a bit in front of the mirror and I underestimated it. It’s not easy at all, this pose,” Lieselotte chatted away when he first met Heidi Klum. The advantage that the younger girls have, according to the 66-year-old: through Instagram, they are used to posing in front of the camera. No excuse for Heidi, who promptly decides: Lieselotte needs an Instagram channel!

Already in her application video, the former teacher, who currently lives in Berlin, stands out with her flirty nature. “You have to be a bit crazy if you want to take part at the age of 66. But actually it was exactly the right time for me personally. […] I’m curious about something new.” And the fans are curious about the pensioner. “I already love her,” enthuses a fan under the Instagram post. Another user is certain: “The older ones will probably be the younger ones steal the show.”
