After the big makeover and the sedcard shooting last week, “Germany’s Next Topmodel” takes us to another galaxy in episode 8. With the extravagant outfits from the designer duo “The Blonds”, the 17 remaining GNTM models are transformed into fashion aliens and have to prove themselves at the Space UFO Walk.

Was that the real reason for Vanessa’s extreme makeover and Heidi Klum wanted to give her the perfect alien look with the green-blue bob? Even if – even Vanessa’s spacy hairstyle can’t help her with a problem that the models are struggling with on the walk. Because the desert wind in combination with UFO-like hoop skirts knocks many a candidate out of their ultra-high heels.

Heidi Klum is looking for her again: the most talented model candidates in Germany. An indicator of the popularity of the candidates are the numbers on social media. Above all, the followers on Instagram.

GNTM models have to prove themselves as influencers

Another challenge awaits the young models: they have to advertise crazy products in the social media challenge, because that is also one of the tasks of a worthy GNTM winner these days. Heidi Klum explains: “Nowadays, designers sometimes book their models based on the number of followers – so good marketing on social media is more important than ever.”

That’s why the model candidates have to bring sleep-to-go pillows, grin trainers or cold and tear dryers to the viewers in short commercials. As expected, this is not a problem for TikTokerin Sophie (18): “I love the task. I actually post a video on TikTok every day. The clicks range from 500 on Instagram to 15 million on TikTok. Therefore: I see myself in this task , Yes.”

Things are different, for example, for 50-year-old Martina and Juliana (25), who have had little experience in social networks so far. You can read here in our couch ticker how Heidi’s little girls will fare in the commercials and whether they will actually be carried away by the desert wind. (spl)
