GNTM has completely changed Zoe’s life

FIV: Zoe, I’m glad the interview worked out. You have already experienced a lot in your life. You participated in GNTM in 2018. Since then, you’ve been a successful model and active on social media. How has your life changed since you took part in GNTM?

Zoe: Thank you for letting me do this interview! My whole life has changed. Everything is different: my job, my personal life, just really everything. If I could turn back time, I would do it all over again.

Tips for future GNTM contestants

FIV: The new season of GNTM starts soon. And you certainly have tips in store for the aspiring candidates?

Zoe: My only tip is to prepare yourself. I didn’t do that at the time because I didn’t feel it was important. That was a big mistake. Preparation is half the battle.

Beauty dream job: sport or fashion

FIV: Was modeling always your career aspiration or did you want to do something else?

Zoe: My imagination has always wavered between sports and fashion. But when I hung up my sports career, I had a very clear goal in mind.

Zoe’s most beautiful journey so far: with her father

FIV: On social media, you share impressions of wonderful trips like Corsica and Thailand with your followers. What was your most beautiful trip so far and which experience do you still remember fondly?

Zoe: I’ve done a lot of great trips, I especially like to remember the time as a child with my dad. I had the best moments in South Africa. It still means a lot to me today to be shown his homeland by my father.

The pressure on social media is on!

FIV: You are in the public eye and are also active on social media as a social media personality. How great is the pressure in the business to always be “perfect”? perfect”? How do you deal with it best

Zoe: Of course the pressure is great, but that’s part of it. In other professions, the pressure is much higher. You just have to take yourself by the nose sometimes and shift down a gear before it becomes too much.

Zoe’s future plans: move to Germany?

FIV: Finally, a short look into the future, we are curious what you have planned in the near future: Do you have big plans like a move or something similar or is there something special coming up? Give us a little teaser of what your fans and followers can look forward to in the near future!

Zoe: I have actually always lived in the suburbs and have now decided to move to Vienna and am currently looking for an apartment. I could also imagine looking for a second home in Germany, possibly as early as next year.
