New Zealand's Next Top Model (NZNTM) is a New Zealand reality television series in which a number of young women compete for the title of New Zealand's Next Top Model.
The show is based on the hit American TV series America's Next Top Model, which was created/produced and hosted by television personality and former supermodel and talk show host, Tyra Banks.
The show started in America in 2003, to early commercial success and was first viewed on New Zealand television screens in late 2004.
The winner of the first cycle was 16-year old, Christobelle Grierson-Ryrie from Auckland.
The winner of the second cycle was 19-year old, Danielle Hayes from Kawerau.
New Zealand's Next Top Model was a ratings success in New Zealand. Cycle 1 secured a higher rating than America's Next Top Model on the TV3 network.
Cycle 1 has also finished airing in Australia on the FOX8 network with similar success, becoming one of the 10 most popular shows on subscription television in Australia and at times out-rating FOX8's heavily promoted Australian version of The Contender.
In October 2010, MediaWorks New Zealand renewed the show for a 3rd season, which will be broadcast on New Zealand screens by early 2011.
