Such a sentence should probably not be written at all: But for me, the 17th season of “Germany’s Next Top Model” ended with the semi-finals on Thursday. Lieselotte was the only one who didn’t get a photo of Heidi Klum. The 66-year-old candidate from Berlin is out!

What is a and not a sensation makes Twitter and other social media platforms rotate. Do families have to separate because members are at odds? Annoyed, some, outraged the Klum critics (if there are any at all).

In the final, Lieselotte’s statements will clearly be missing: “I just thought of something myself.” big right? Even better than the Noella revenant: “I’ll shave.”

Lieselotte Reznicek was not the only “Best Ager” in this “GNTM” season, there is still Martina (50), who will fight for the title with her daughter Lou-Anne (19) next Thursday. With the premiere of mother-daughter, the diversity requirement is met, so much calculation is important to Heidi Klum. The model mother also thinks dynamically. The 48-year-old had her daughter Leni (18) with her as a guest judge.

“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” wrote Klum senior about her eldest daughter’s appearance on the ProSieben show on Instagram. Leni Klum followed in her mother’s footsteps about a year and a half ago. She had her first modeling job at the end of 2020: together with her mother, she was photographed for the cover and a photo series of the German “Vogue”.

1.84 million watched the semifinals on Thursday evening, with a market share of 7.8 percent. In the target group of 14 to 49 year olds, which is important for private broadcasters, the rate was even more than twice as high at 16.7 percent. The finale will take place next Thursday (May 26, 8:15 p.m.) with a live show in Cologne.

In the coming week, Lou-Anne and Martina will also be fighting 20-year-old Luca from Munich, 21-year-old Anita from Neuburg an der Donau and Noëlla (25) from Berlin for the title of “Germany’s Next Top Model”.

Have there ever been five candidates in the “GNTM” final? I’m sticking with Noella Mbomba now, she comes from Berlin and embodies the attitude of the capital almost as well as Lieselotte. For the next season one thing is certain: How exciting is Berlin, how boring are Munich and the rest of Germany.

Only peace, joy, pancakes? By far not. ProSieben rejects allegations by former top model candidate Lijana Kaggwa. “ProSieben is examining legal steps,” said “GNTM” spokeswoman Tina Land and accused the 25-year-old of telling untruths. Kaggwa had said in a video that she wanted to “sensitize her viewers to how reality TV shows really to run”. She claims there that disputes are deliberately being stirred up between the candidates and raises allegations of manipulation: for example, candidates who were supposed to stumble on the catwalk had their feet creamed. Land rejected this: “It’s no secret who creamed their feet, how, where and why. On the contrary: that was part of episode one in the season in which Lijana took part. “Disputes between the candidates would not be provoked either: “What happens between the candidates happens.”

Kaggwa had already suspected that her video would have consequences: “My first YouTube video after such a long time and then one for which I’m being sued. Well then, cheers.” According to “GNTM” spokeswoman Land, the candidates for Heidi Klum’s model show must contractually ensure that they will not talk about the production conditions and the shooting: “It says so in almost all TV contracts. And in most employment contracts in Germany.” Kaggwa left the “GNTM” final in 2020. She had reacted to violent hostilities against her at the time.
