    • Series 9 ep 7

      Just saw something rather disgusting from the host of the show. They were surprised with a challenge to sell a car. They were all scared by it, shocked even. The host pulls them outside and is angry. Ok. But then ACCUSES them of not being supermodels yet so basically accusing them of being rude when actually they were just unable to react well. Then when one tries to explain they were just scared she gets bad attitude from the host putting down the contestant. Appalling. And if I was one of those girls ( and I'm 46 with a background in fashion and advertising) I'd have been shocked too. At their age they should've had a workshop beforehand to bring their energy and positivity up then give them enough time to come up with something. In a commercial setting they'd be learning lines not being an ad exec. Not happy with programme.moreless
    • i can't wait for the S8

      I acutually like AusNTM more than stupid, vapid, insipid American version. In this show girls are nice, patient, picked carefully and well prepared for the fashin industry. No girl from any franchise except Ausralian is booked anywhere, and in this show winners did major campaigns like Alice B for McQueen, walked major shows like Alice and Montana for Lanvin, Dior, Chanel, Vuitton, D&G and much more and got signed by top agencies. That shows it all. These girls are picked and groomed to be a real life high fashion model as oppose of being a laughable characters of some reality tv.moreless
    • Blatant racism in Australia's Next Top Muddle

      The first episode aired in Holland last night and I was appalled! It was a rascist emotional gang bang of the dark-skinned girl. The entire group got down on her. And to top it off, her eye-brow was even shaved off! And the judges did not protect or defend her. It was all put down to a big joke. I always knew that rascism was rampant but this, in anno 2009 was really backward. Yuck!!!!!! The judges advised her to chop off the perpetrator's hair. Why, I ask? To diffuse the seriousness of the the offence and to bring the dark girl down to the same disgusting level of the of the classless dirt?

      A big zero for this classless, tasteless show that perpetrates and even applauds rascism!!!!moreless
    • This is an awesome version of Top Model, and although I'm probably the only person to hold this opinion, I think it's actually better than the American version of Top Model.moreless

      This show is in it's 4th season, but I don't get to see it now that I'm at uni. But I have followed the first 3 seasons and I think the models have more potential than the American girls. I guess I hold the same opinion one American designer had about the Oz models and the US models which go on this show. It's an excellent show - firstly, it doesn't have Tyra who drives me crazy and secondly it has girls who are more relatable and have more potential than on the American version.

      This show has actually brought many of my favourite reality tv models. But I didn't agree with the winner of the first 2 seasons - Gemma and Eboni. I think they were bad decisions, but I like them better than the 3rd season because of Erika, who was a good host, and it kind of sticks true to the American version of the show - follows the same format the show took, but obviously being orginal enough to change it over quite a bit. But when Erika left and the age got lowered, I thought it was the biggest mistake Top Model made. Firstly, I don't care to watch teenage models fight all of the time. We got some pretty childish stuff the third season, especially from Paloma and Jordan. But, of course, it made it kinda entertaining too. I actually respected Jordan and her crew (everyone but Steph and Paloma) get into trouble for childish behaviour - I just hate how Tyra and everyone on the American show (think Janice Dickinson) say modelling's about cattiness - it might be true, but you don't have to put up with it!

      But, then, Australia's Next Top Model made a mistake by having a live finale - not nearly as entertaining as the normal grand finals. But the worst thing is, while many of the girls wanted Steph to win (perhaps for more personality reasons than talent reasons), Alice got the votes of the three most important people - and not just because of talent, but because of age too! Steph was a good model, and although I wanted Alice to win, I think in a way she got discriminated because of how young she was, and a couple of people actually said "when she gets older".

      Nonetheless, I still advocate this version above the American version, but I've read quite a few reviews from other people on this show and they all prefer the American version (or at least most) which is cool. I'm just daring to be different!moreless
    • Australia's Next Top Model (ANTM) is nothing compared to the American version based on drama alone. But the viewers learn so much more about the fashion industry and the winners on the show are much more successful.moreless

      Australia's Next Top Model (ANTM) is nothing compared to the American version based on drama alone. I have been watching America's Next Top Model since it hit our TV screens, but I was luck enough to catch Australia's Next Top Model (AusNTM)cycle 3 and 4. And I was glad I did. Here's why:

      At first I thought the AusNTM is ridiculously boring, but I grew to respect it much more ANTM because the Australian version actually teaches more about modeling and the fashion industry. Unlike Tyra (the host of ANTM), the judges are focusing on choosing all girls that will target every designer and will fit in the fashion industry. However, Tyra is much more concerned with rating by airing more of the drama in the house than creating/ finding a top model. Tyra wants to find girls that can "change" the industry, which I respect, but I believe she would rather keep someone around to continue with the drama in the house (ie. Lisa (constantly drunk), Jade, Bianca who tormented a girl on the show with a health problems, etc) rather than keep the ones who will be successful. After watching those episodes, I don't know what designer/agency would hire them based on how they act on the show. Perfect example: Though Bianca made it far on her cycle, she will be looking as the girl who got into a big flight with another actress at an airport rather than be known for a great model. Plus, Tyra and all of the judges do watch the footage as well as each girls' photo shoot each week; therefore, they see who makes rating and who is too boring on TV.

      Australia's Next Top Model's judge have warned the girls to be kind/ behave with one another or they will go home. They admit to watch what goes on the house every week. They explain to the girls the important of personality on set and that they are being watched by fashion designers and people who can change their career. Though it's much more boring watching this version of the show, it's refreshing to watch a real fashion TV show which can give you a real insiders' look into the industry.moreless
