The first episode of “Switzerland’s Next Top Model” 2021 is tough. There is training, fighting and crying – and of course some have to pack their bags already.
The first episode of the new SNTM season ran on Wednesday at prime time on Prosieben Switzerland.
New: The models were divided into two teams (red and blue).
The team leaders are the jurors Papis Loveday (44) and Larissa Marolt (29).
The first favorites crystallized during the first challenges.
The third season of “Switzerland’s Next Topmodel” started on Prosieben on Wednesday. TV host Manuela Frey welcomes her candidates to the holiday island of Naxos under the bright Greek sun. Carlos (22) from Horgen thinks it is “amazing” here, even if he has been to Greece before. And the participants are completely blown away by top model Manuela: “She’s just wow,” says the 26-year-old Venance enthusiastically into the camera.
But the models don’t have much time to be amazed, because the first challenge is already taking place. The jury members Papis Loveday (44) and Larissa Marolt (29) split the candidates into two groups. On the basis of a walk in the favorite outfit of the respective model, it is decided who ends up in Papis’ team red and who ends up in Larissa’s team blue.
That was great
Nadia from Ebikon likes it «glamorous» and therefore wanted to join the Papis team. With glitter pants and red lipstick, she powered herself through the first challenge and straight into the 44-year-old’s heart: “You’re a freak – and I love that,” he enthuses about the 26-year-old. But Nadia is not the only strong candidate in the Red team: Aleksandra (19) from Zurich is already the favorite of the season and was allowed to close the fashion show as a “Closing Face” in a haute couture dress by designer Nikos Aliazis before being eliminated.
That went wrong
Despite her self-confidence, 19-year-old Alex made a mistake during the fashion show: The classic mishap of the stiletto trapped in the dress could have been easily remedied, but it totally threw the Zurich woman off her head. “You looked totally lost on the catwalk,” Papis notes.
It was similar for Sophia (18) from Bottenwil, who, in addition to a high-heel faux pas on the catwalk, also forgot her body mass. Who would have thought, but for top model Manuela Frey this is apparently a knockout criterion: “You have to know the size of your body, the designers ask that all the time,” clarifies the 24-year-old before sending the milk technologist home.
They are out
While the models were splitting up into team red and blue, the jury began sending people home. Shy Kristina (20) made it into neither of the two groups despite modeling experience. The 22-year-old dancer Rhea knew how to move, but that alone couldn’t convince Papis and Larissa: “She is cute – but being cute is simply not enough these days,” the two agree.
And even Leonardo, who convinced the jury as a drag queen at the beginning, could not win over boss Manuela in the end. “You looked like you were on the run,” says Manuela Frey. “I don’t have a lot of practice in the male walk,” says the 25-year-old, explaining his performance. But juror Papis does not accept that: “You ran listlessly, without a goat,” he rebukes. Sophia, who couldn’t remember her mass, had to go too.
His colleague André (24) is crying for no reason at all: He goes one round, but howls after the decision, snot and water. Maybe with relief?
