On July 26, 2018 the 3rd season Curvy Supermodel started on RTL 2. For 7 weeks the show runs on TV on Thursdays at 8.15 pm.

The jury has two new faces and two familiar faces

This year again, the girls will be supported and promoted by a professional and experienced jury. The four-man jury accompanies all participants on their way and will do everything to get the best out of their protégés. At the end of each episode they decide who was convincing and for whom the dream of the title “Curvy Supermodel 2018” is unfortunately over.

Curvy Model Angelina Kirsch

Already for the third time the German Curvy model Angelina Kirsch sits in the jury. It is highly successful in Germany and internationally and represents brands such as Zalando and H&M. She knows exactly how the business works and what is expected of the girls. At the same time Angelina can put herself in the shoes of the young candidates and support them personally.

Jan Kralichka: The Men Model

Yan Kralichka will be there for the first time in 2018. He became famous through the TV show ” der Bachelor” in 2013, but even before that he was already in front of the camera, because he is a professional model.  Through his experience he has the best tips for the girls in front of the camera.

Jana Ina Zarella for Power!

The second woman on the jury is Jana Ina Zarella. She is a model, TV presenter and designer, a real multi-talent. The participants can judge her through her versatile career from different points of view but also help to try themselves out. She was already with Curvy Supermodels last year and was so enthusiastic about the development of the girls that she definitely wanted to be part of the jury again in 2018.

Oliver Tienken is coach, choreographer and dancer

Oliver Tienken completes the jury this year. As a successful coach, choreographer and dancer he will rehearse great performances with the girls. From him they learn how to move as a successful model and present themselves on the catwalk to be successful. Oliver knows how to do it! He ran across the runway ready with Naomi Campbell.

What must the Curvy supermodel 2018 bring?

charisma and self-confidence! A very important topic, because a Curvy model must be able to inspire people and get them on their way. She must be able to present herself and her body self-confidently and above all with pride. Discipline and ambition are also part of it. It’s often a tough job and you really have to want it to be on top. It is important to fight for one’s dreams and to keep working on oneself and improving. It is a job where you should always be in top form to satisfy the customers, you have to be able to deal with precipitation and sometimes stamina. One of the most important things about a Curvy model is of course the curves. A beautiful hourglass silhouette and no hunger hook is sought. There is no minimum size and no exactly specified dimensions. You can take part from 16 years upwards there is no limit. 2016 was the oldest participant 32.

The last episodes decided about the big chance

More than 5,000 girls applied for the show this year. On the basis of the application photos, the jury made a pre-selection and invited the more than 50 girls selected to the casting in Düsseldorf. The girls were allowed to put together their outfits themselves without any specifications and so some walked down the catwalk in evening wear and others in bikinis. As a surprise, the girls received professional make-up and hairstyling before their performance. Then we went onto the catwalk for each one separately. To go one round further, the girls had to convince at least three jurors. For the girls who did it, it went directly to round 2, where they had to present themselves in a group walk, the difficulty was that it was a photo shoot at the same time. In the end Ines, Victoria, Tessa, Larissa, Tessa and Yolanda made it to the next round.

In the second casting there was the same principle and the same Prerequisites as a model. Before the Canadians came onto the catwalk, a voice message recorded by them was played on which they introduced themselves and tell what influenced them and thus made them a strong, self-confident woman. They also completed a rehearsed group catwalk in round 2.

In the next episode the last potential models will be selected! It’s the last casting of this season and then it really starts! In the last casting, touching stories of models who talk about the negative experiences with their bodies await us once again.

Here you can find more videos about the Curvys:

The last winners of Curvy Supermodels

The first season 2016 was won by 23-year-old Celine Denefleh. She was present throughout the season and delivered. All in all, she had the greatest development of the participants and gave the jury goose bumps. The 23-year-old was delighted with a great model contract with Ted Linows Model Agency and became the face of a winter campaign for a well-known plus-size fashion label.

In 2017 Hanna Wilperath surprisingly won the title. She wasn’t one of the favourites but that only strengthened her fighting spirit. The 24-year-old convinces with her naturalness and her motto “The curve with the most sex appeal is your smile”.

This year the winner is expecting a cover and a model contract

This year the winners of the show will be on the cover of the German fashion magazine “Joy”. In addition, she is awarded a model contract by Peyman Amin’s renowned agency Pars Management.

Growing up, living as street kid

Fiv: Hi Zombie Boy, could you tell us who invented your name?

Growing up, living as street kid, my comrades aliased me as ‘Zombie’. This was due to my couple of tattoos & macabre t-shirts/apparel I’d be fashioning, as well as the music and movies I’d be into. I had also previously survived a brain tumor operation; hence, the shoe fit like chocolate & peanut butter. Down the line, it was Bizarre Magazine that dubbed me as the Zombie Boy.

Fiv: When asked what your profession is, what do you answer?

In a nutshell, my profession is Zombie Boy.
I started entertainment performance in freak-show as “the boy who ate worms” . I have since worked as a model and have done some acting. I am currently striving to make my way into music as the front man (lyricist/vocalist) of our currently under-construction band ‘Zombie Boy’.

Fiv: How did your present day career begin? What were you doing before that?

As a teen, I was a squeegee-kid and doing odd jobs before getting into freak-show performing. Some people would want pictures, and so it was a modeling gig that interested Nicola Formichetti to scoop me up. It was shooting with Mugler and hand-in-glove shooting of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born this Way’ that trumped everything else I had previously done.


Fiv: What do you particularly like about your job?

Sometime a photographer will use a snap that shows the obscure Zombie Boy character that I manifested for myself. Also, once in a blue moon, I get a gothic/horror gig alongside other misfit strangers in the strangest places.

My favourite tattoo is the one on my skin

Fiv: It looks like there is no free space on your body for any other more tattoos but is there a part of your body that is not yet tattooed?

Yeah there’s a little space left, but that’s after-dark real-estate territory.

Fiv: What would you say is your favorite tattoo?

My favourite tattoo is the one on my skin.

+ AD + Do you know?

Fiv: When and why did you start getting inked? Would you tell us something about your first tattoo and the story behind it?

I was 16 when I got my “Skull & crossbones” tattoo on my left shoulder. It represents “no rules & no master”.

human flesh, and brains are a cultural delicacy

Fiv: How do you picture your life in 20 years from now?

Logical reasoning leads me to believe that I will by then in-turn be the worm food.

Fiv: Our special question: what does a zombie eat? What is your favorite food?

Zombies generally vice on human flesh, and brains are a cultural delicacy. Though if you ask me, worms are great for snacking and candy-corn everyday keeps the doctor away.


Fiv: You lived on the streets of Montreal for a while. What would you say was the hardest part of this?

Trying to squat the harsh and unforgiving winter, with a dash of Police.

Fiv: You have traveled a lot over the last few years. Many other people leave their hometown when they work in your business. What is so special about Montreal for you that you want to stay?

This is my home. The people and grew-up with and love are here. I know where my resources are, and familiarity is my comfort zone.

Thank you Zombie Boy for the great Interview.

The biggest German supermodels of all times!

Most of the really big top models in the world come from Brazil, America or Australia. However, there are one or the other supermodels in the world who come from Germany. The first name that comes to mind is of course Heidi Klum, but there are many more who have also made a name for themselves in the scene. We have put together a list with the best and biggest top models from Germany for you!

Caro Daur

The German model and influencer is one of the new generation models who are also booked on social media because of their reach. She is very successful and designs, among others, for brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Calzedonia.

Stefanie Giesinger

At the age of 17, the 1.77-meter former high school student took part in the ninth season of the casting show Germany’s Next Top Model, which aired on ProSieben from February 2014. On May 8, 2014, she won the final. In June 2014 she was on the cover of German Cosmopolitan. Like other participants of the season, she received from Günther Klums model agency ONEeins a two-year contract, which she did not renew. Since then, she is very active on social media and as a model, and is often booked as an influencer.

Anna Ewers

In 2013 she came into business and ran at 42 fashion shows in Paris and New York. A call from designer Alexander Wang promoted her career. The German-language edition March 2015 of fashion magazine Vogue brought with her for the first time ever five different cover pictures of the same model by star photographers like Patrick Demarchelier or Peter Lindbergh. She lives in Brooklyn, New York and is, according to Stern, “currently the internationally most booked German model”.

Toni Garrn

As a model she was discovered in Hamburg at a Fanfest for the Football World Cup 2006. The international breakthrough came in the following year, when she was booked exclusively for Calvin Klein. After graduating from high school Ohlstedt in Hamburg, she also moved to New York City to work as a model professional. She also starred in campaigns for Burberry, Chloé, Dior, Emporio Armani, Fendi, Hugo Boss, Jil Sander, Prada and Versace.

Setup for Model Newbies – Agencies, Test Shootings and Co.

Become a model. Many young women dream of floating like Victoria’s Secret Angel on a glittering catwalk, or how to model GiGi Hadid for big brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Co. But not everyone has what it takes and in the real world of modeling, there is far more to it than the things that show us formats, such as GNTM. In order to bring a little clarity into the conditions and the true model life, I summarized here the most important facts.

Fact # 1 Requirements for Models

Of course, the cliché is already a bit that all models must be thin, because except for the Curvy Models, you should be in shape as a model. But what is important, the so-called hunger models no longer wants to have an agency these days. It is much more about living healthy, sporty and balanced. Of course you need certain dimensions as a model. 90-60-90 is not so outdated in the modelbussiness. For the German market models can also be ‘curvy’ means a 94 he hips or a 65 waist are here in sufficient. The reason why these measurements exist is simply the fact that designers usually tailor their shoots or catwalks to a certain size, which the models must then fit into. The problem with the dimensions is usually that many of the bones and physique are not designed to reach these dimensions. Therefore, one should not be too strict with the dimensions, because even the size is sometimes made by a beautiful face in the shade. Of course, the size is very important, but there are also many professional models that are actually too small, but have such an expressive face that they still work well. In summary, it means that it comes down to the mixture when modeling. The measurements should be correct in a certain range, the size should not be less than 1.71m in women and the face must convince. It is also important – Model does not mean pretty. There are many models with an androgynous or special face, which we would not classify as beautiful at first glance, but still work great as a model!

Fact # 2 Modeling agencies and how do they actually earn their money?

Model agencies are the nuts and bolts of aspiring models. They help a photographer find his first test shootings, teach jobs and organize everything around modeling. But which agencies are good and professional and which ones should you avoid? There are some key facts to make a good agency. For example, a professional agency will never take money from you. Even if this is made so firm in the contract, this is not right. A good modeling agency also does not tell you that you have to go hungry or force yourself into things you do not want, such as a haircut, self-tanner or anything else. A good agency does not let you sign a contract that specifies a minimum term, or states that you are not allowed in any other agencies. As a professional model it is normal to be represented by several agencies from different countries. So-called ‘exclusivity contracts’ are not legal, because you are independent and can be represented in as many agencies as you want. Important, if you apply, you do not need a big portfolio of you. Simple polaroids are enough. You can just make these in front of a simple wall at home. But how do agencies actually earn their money? It’s easy, because modeling agencies give you jobs and get 20% agency commission from your customers, as a commission. If you earn 400.00 Eur netto on a job, your agency will get 80.00 Eur from the customer. Important, you will not be deducted from the fee, but the customer pays the commission, not you!

Fact # 3 Build Book as New Face

As NewFace, it is important to build a large, comprehensive book. Most of the test shoots are done with photographers. In the so-called TfP shootings, all involved (photographer, visa, model) use the images for their book, but no one has to pay the other. Here it is important that the quality of the pictures is correct. So just look for good photographers or discuss the shootings with your agency. Best suited for your book shoots with a natural setting, not too much make-up, not too fancy clothes or accessories, it should go around you and show you from a good side. Depending on how professional the photographers are, it may also be that they want to have money from you for a test. This is worthwhile only for the best, but then it is a good investment in yourself. Watch out, you have to organize with photographers who want to make lewd photos of you, or the shoot without your agency. If it’s a professional photographer, he has no problem communicating with your agency in advance. Since you’re on a shoot and the photographer is expecting something you do not want, say no, because you do not have to go along with everything and beautiful pictures will only be created if you feel comfortable in your own skin anyway.

His success came in 2010, when Nicola Formichetti (art designer and stylist of Lady Gaga) became aware of Rick. Modern, via Facebook. The story gets even brighter. She had to pay a deposit of 15,000 euros to allow Rick to leave the country to run his first fashion show in the USA in 2011, for Thierry Mugler.
