After 'Real Housewives' and 'Top Chef' there is a 'Next Top Model' coming to Arabia

The past week has seen a flurry of media activity speculating on a possible Arabian version of America's Next Top Model, the hit US show, which premiered in May 2003, and was created by supermodel Tyra Banks. There is still no official confirmation on this latest edition which will reportedly be titled “Arabia’s Next Top Model.” And no production company in the Region has admitted to being in development with the series.

Other versions of the US show have been created, in fact more than 50 around the world including one in Germany, an Asian show, as well as India's Next Top Model. Some have even used Dubai as a location for one of the fashion shoots which are featured on the program.

The original show focused on both male and female models and put them through a series of tasks which, by process of elimination, narrowed the choice down to a final contestant, who would go on to be named "America's Next Top Model." While the show's winners never really went on to enjoy international fame as fashion models, some contestants like Victoria's Secret beauty Winnie Harlow and Somalian model Fatima Siad did go on to have successful runway and editorial careers.

Finally, there is also a rumor going around that four celebrity judges are being sought in the Region, and Arab News speculated that the Kattan sisters (the power duo behind Huda Beauty) or even Lebanese designer Elie Saab could be tapped to do the honors.
