The five finalists of “Germany’s next top model” will be on the catwalk for the last time on May 26th. That’s what the finale has to offer.

This Thursday, May 26th, at 8:15 p.m. on ProSieben, the big “GNTM” finale will take place. Heidi Klum will then choose “Germany’s next top model” in 2022. Who is in the final, which final challenges are waiting for the candidates and what does the winner have in store?

The finalists

Five models made it into the season 17 finale. Lou-Anne, 18, from Klosterneuburg, the youngest finalist, will fight for victory alongside her mother Martina, 50, the first Best Agerin of a “GNTM” final. “If Lou-Anne wins, there is no envy at all. I would be very happy for her. I would then collect the usual 20 percent commission from her,” Martina joked in a ProSieben interview before the final. “When you’re in the final, of course you want to win yourself. But if mom wins, that’s okay too. I don’t begrudge her, it stays in the family,” explains Lou-Anne. Luca, 20, from Munich, Anita, 21, from Neustadt an der Donau and Noëlla, 25, from Berlin complete the field of finalists. The latter was able to skim the most jobs this season.

The tasks and the guests

The finalists again have to complete different walks and a live shooting. During their performances, they will wear designs by fashion designers Jeremy Scott, Julien MacDonald and Marina Hoermanseder. The designers will all sit on the sofa next to Heidi Klum. Star photographer Ellen von Unwerth also takes on the live shoot in the studio. Heidi Klum will open the show. “One thing can already be revealed: her singing performance ‘Chai Tea with Heidi’ with Snoop Dogg was not her last…” announces ProSieben about the show opener. The model had worked together with the rapper for said opener song of the 17th season of “Germany’s next top model”.

The win

In the end, the winner can not only look forward to the unveiling of her cover at the German “Harper’s Bazaar”. She also becomes the campaign face of Mac Cosmetics and creams off a bonus of 100,000 euros. In the final show, another “GNTM” candidate can look forward to a prize: the Personality Award will be presented again. The fans could use the ProSieben app to vote on who should receive the award for the best personality this year. The choices were: Amaya, Annalotta, Barbara, Inka, Jessica, Juliana, Laura, Lena, Lieselotte, Paulina, Sophie, Vanessa, Viola and Vivien.
