top model norway

I’ve been a fan of Tyra Bank’s America’s Next Top Model so I was happy when it was also shown in Norway, about the time I arrived here, though a season later than what was shown in Manila. After ANTM, Top Model Norge came into the picture and filled my Monday night TV viewing. I must say that the contestants in the Norwegian franchise look so much better and have this air of innate sophistication and natural flair in them. You could easily pick out one or two rotten apples in the basket, whereas in ANTM, I would often go “WTF?” And those American girls have so much drama in them.

So after 11 photoshoots – dressed in bridal gowns amidst the Norwegian fjords, clad in couture in Paris, sparkled in diamonds in Amsterdam, made over in London, and a quick 101 with ANTM’s Miss Jay among others, the 12 model hopefuls got trimmed to the final three – and then two – in New York.

Fifteen year old Maria won the competition, with her fresh, energetic vibe, high cheek bones and a modelesque bone structure. I wasn’t really rooting for her because sometimes, mostly off-cam, she doesn’t look the part. But she works very well in front of the camera, and according to the agent from Trump Agency, she has a very high potential in New York.

I was rooting for Lene, the girl with the amazing eyes. I just love her! She’s so professional, she’s highly motivated, and she almost did all her shoots immaculately. What made her lose the title though was the roundness of her face. The agent from Trump Agency, who sat in the final deliberation significantly mentioned the need for high cheek bones in their models. But isn’t she very stunning, cheek bones or the lack of it?

Next week, it’ll be another season of ANTM. Let’s see if those girls from the US could be at par with these two.

    I’ve only seen the one with Kara Saun, Charles. Will any Norwegian channel show the latest season soon?

    Not as revealing and high-quality production, I think, C. Yeah, she’s only 15.

    Hahaha, Renny!
