They say that the third time is the charm. Cycle three of New Zealand’s Next Top Model promises to be just as charming, dramatic, entertaining and full of surprises as ever! New Zealand’s Next Top Model returns with a brand new series on Friday, June 10 th at 7:30pm on 3.
An exhaustive nationwide search for would-be models saw over 100 individuals make the Top Model short list. This number was then whittled down to 33 finalists – who will all be competing, in a rigorous screening process, for a place in the prestigious Top Model house.
To heat things up right from the start, the 33 hopefuls will be put to the test in the sub-tropical locale of the Bay of Islands. No doubt there will be only one thing on their mind – to emulate Danielle Hayes and become the successor of the title, New Zealand’s Next Top Model. Few can forget Danielle’s heart-warming journey last year, as she went from shy tomboy to a confident and selfassured young woman, right before the audience’s eyes. “Watching Danielle’s transformation last year was a pleasure, and also the first step in our professional relationship,” says New Zealand’s Next Top Model host Sara Tetro. “Danielle has continued to develop as a model and has gone from strength to strength.”
“The level of talent at this year’s auditions was unprecedented,” Tetro continues. “We are certainly going to have our work cut out for us this cycle – the determination of the people auditioning has become fiercer with every cycle.” Sara Tetro will be joined by regular judges, photographer Chris Sisarich and international fashion model Colin Mathura-Jeffree, for cycle three of New Zealand’s Next Top Model. Each week the judging panel will be joined by a special guest judge, an expert within a certain area of the fashion industry.
What will be in store for the model hopefuls this year? Once again, there will be a host of challenges and tutorials for them to partake in, which will lead them closer to their dream of becoming a top model. Who will come into their own and find unknown talents? Who will have their dreams dashed?
