AUDITIONS : Africa’s Next Top Model 2013

Are you an aspiring model looking for your next big break? Then we have good news for you. The reality TV competition, America’s Next Top Model, is heading to Africa! Filming starts in Cape Town in August, and the show will be aired on M-Net’s AfricaMagic channels later this year.

Africa’s Next Top Model is the newest in the Top Model franchise that already spans three continents and 35 countries including Australia, China, Brazil, France, Sweden, Canada, Italy and the UK. The hunt for Africa’s next top model will take place across the continent, from South Africa to Kenya and Sierra Leone.

The show will be hosted by Nigerian-born supermodel Oluchi Orlandi, filling in the Tyra Banks role as producer and mentor. Orlandi is an internationally renowned supermodel who has graced the covers of ELLE and Italian Vogue as well as being a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

‘The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent,’ said Orlandi.

Shooting will take place in Johannesburg and Cape Town, as cameras follow 12 contestants over 10 episodes and eight weeks as they learn what it takes to stay on top. The show will be produced by Gavin Wratten, also the man behind SA Idols.
