The Next Top Model is a Greek reality television show that forms part of the Top Model series. Greek supermodel Vicky Kaya (Greek: Βίκυ Καγιά) assumes the role of Tyra Banks from the original series as the head of the search as well as a mentor for the contestants. The number of contestants is 17 and the number of applications reached approximately 5000. Many of the applications have been sent in from abroad, which means that some of the contestants are from other countries. The show premiered on 12 October 2009.
The basic premise of the series is a group of young female contestants who live together in a house for several weeks whilst taking part in various challenges, photo shoots and meetings with members of the modeling industry. Normally, one poor-performing contestant is eliminated each week until the last contestant remaining is declared "The Next Top Model" and receives a modeling contract along with other associated prizes. *wikipedia*
