Heidi Klum hosts a reality series where aspiring fashion designers compete for a chance to break into the industry. Each week, a designer is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a judges' panel.
Several models compete to be chosen as the most beautiful person, but they are not told that the real purpose of the competition is to chose the one with the most beautiful personal qualities such as character, virtue, honesty, etc.
OK first of all, Lisa Butcher was a good choice for presenter during series 1 but did the audience really know who she was? No. Did they therefore value her opinion on who should stay and go? Not really, but that's not the point. She is a model whether we have heard of her or not and did a good job as presenter.
But I, for one, am very pleased that Lisa Snowdon took over as host in series 2, because as good as Butcher was, far more of the audience had heard of Snowdon beforehand, making the show more popular than the first series.
The photography and money spent on the show could have been a lot better/more, but for what it was (i.e. a show to find a girl to win a modelling contract with Models1 management) it was a very good show.
Obviously nothing will beat America's Next Top Model, as this was the original and with a much bigger budget, and a much more interesting, colourful and lovable panel of judges. Pus, of course, the amazing Tyra Banks.
But credit where credit is due, we Brit's give it a good go! 8/10
