This happens in episode 7

For their sedcard, the remaining GNTM 2022 models are photographed in skin-colored bodies and with an XXL letter as a prop. Supermodel Coco Rocha explains to the candidates what the shoot is all about: "The photo should embody you. Only you. Show us your energy, your charisma. The Queen of Poses is not the only celebrity guest on this day. GNTM winner Stefanie Giesinger will also be on hand with a video message, announcing that the top twelve photos will be included in a charity calendar, the entire proceeds of which will go to the yeswecan!cer organization.

Coco Rocha is also the one who stands by Heidi in her decision and judges the "doll walk" of the aspiring models. Who can üconvince, who must go?

GNTM 2022 – who is out?

In episode six, the GNTM journey ended for two candidates at once: The 23-year-old Jasmin did not get a photo from Heidi, for the älteste candidate of the season, the 68-year-old Barbara was also after episode six end with the title dream. So 19 candidates remain in the race for the title of Germany’s next Topmodel" 2022.

Who are the GNTM candidates 2022?

The GNTM 2022 cast is more diverse than ever, especially in terms of age. For example, at the start of season 17, there were three 50-something candidates – two of them even 60! Of course, despite their age, I will be just as hard on them as I am on my younger candidates. There are no exceptions. But the energy that the two of them have is palpable. There’s a lot of willpower behind it, and that’s great,” says Heidi, delighted with her new candidates. In addition to the best-ager models, a mother-daughter team is competing for the title for the first time this year, and petite and curvy models are once again represented in the cast.

Who is in the jury of GNTM season 17?

Last year, Heidi Klum was once again the only permanent jury member on "Germany’s next Topmodel" but for each episode, she brought in guest judges from the fashion industry. Already in season 16, there was a lot of talk about Leni’s role in GNTM – and Heidi’s daughter, who is now successful as a model herself, heated it up again in the fall of 2021. In an interview with "Cosmopolitan" she said in response to the question of whether she would participate in the new season: "Maybe! I tried to persuade my mom to come on as a guest judge for one episode. Be curious if it worked out…" Model mom Heidi also answered the question about Leni’s role in the new season only vaguely – she might come over, it remains to be seen, said the GNTM boss at a press conference in Mykonos.

In episode 1, however, the focus was not on Leni, but on another celebrity lady next to Heidi. In the first decision, the model mom was advised by singer Kylie Minogue. In episode two, photographer Yu Tsai took a seat on the jury folding chair. In the third episode, for the first time in a long time, the jury was made up of three people: photographer Rankin and designer Christian Cowan advised the model mom on her decision. In episode four, Heidi was assisted by model Jasmin Sanders. This was followed by designer Jean Paul Gaultier and ex-GNTM contestant Sarina Nowak, who now works successfully as a curvy model. In episode seven, supermodel Coco Rocha joins the GNTM jury.

The new GNTM theme song – by Heidi höchstpersönlich!

In previous years, "Tokio Hotel", the band around Heidi’s husband Tom Kaulitz, provided the background music for the casting show. GNTM 2022 is different, the title song is sung by none other than Heidi herself! The model mom has unceremoniously teamed up with rapper Snoop Dogg and produced the song "Chai Tea with Heidi" as an opener for the show.
