Over the past seven years our annual search for Eurovision’s Next Top Model has grown into the premier online modelling competition for singers at the Eurovision Song Contest. Once again it’s time for you to decide who has the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to succeed as an international superstar after the Eurovision glory fades.
Ladies: Take this contest seriously, and the world will take you seriously. Our winners routinely secure lucrative contracts with leading cosmetics and fashion brands, and have graced the pages of glossy magazines in Romania, Serbia, Ukraine and countless other markets. Vogue is watching. Just ask Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2015 winner Tamar Kaprelian, whose wedding was recently documented by the fashion bible. We’re here to praise the stars, but also to make them.
The 28 women below all want a spot in the finals. But wiwibloggs can only afford 14 sets of hair extensions and 14 vials of La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation.
As such, we will conduct semi-final voting between now and April 22. Periodically we will eliminate the women with the lowest number of votes. We’ll do so without warning because in fashion one day you’re in, and the next day you’re out — and ain’t no other girl gonna tell you when that moment’s coming.
The last 14 contestants standing will advance to the final, where they will have one final shot at wowing you with their perfect pins and stunning décolletage. At that time all votes will be erased. This will give you a chance to review the women with fresh eyes and to use our upcoming interview footage as a window into their soul. These women need to work the runway, but they also need to work their way into your hearts.
Modelling is a cruel industry, but we are not. As such we have decided that Yulia Samoylova — Russia’s embattled Eurovision 2017 singer — will participate in the contest regardless of her status at Eurovision. Our contest is unique in that all contestants compete remotely. It’s a level playing field.
Elsewhere, we have decided that the Lisa, Amy, and Shelley — the three sisters that make up The Netherlands’ O’G3NE — will compete as a threesome. Two of them are twins anyway, so their modelling portfolios were strikingly similar.
The photos used below have been culled from the official promotional photographs submitted by the acts to the European Broadcasting Union. In instances where contestants did not submit three photos, we turned to their official channels — such as Facebook and Twitter — to find photos that they themselves have shared. We will rotate the featured image at the top of this post on a set schedule so that all the women have an equal chance to shine.
After revealing the finalists, the team at wiwibloggs reserves the right to declare a state of she-mergency and save a contestant, either through a public vote or internal selection. This singer (or singers) will then join the finals of Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017.
The judges also reserve the right to remove a contestant from the final if it emerges that she has acted in any way that would bring the competition into disrepute. This includes, but is not limited to, the discovery that they have used performance enhancing drugs, starred in films with adult themes or embezzled illegal substances across national borders. Don’t get shady ladies.
Before you vote, you can watch all of the ladies in action on our contestants page and you can flip through their modelling portfolios below. You can vote for as many women as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to click the box next to every contestant you want to see in the final of Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017. In an ideal world you’ll choose your Top 14 ladies to help us have the strongest final possible. And please note: Beauty is not just physical. Consider their charisma, attitude, experience on stage and all the other factors that create a superstar.
It’s up to you, Europe. Start voting now!
