China's Next Top Model is a Chinese reality TV series, based on the international version and spin-off to the original, America's Next Top Model created by Tyra Banks.

The show was first produced by Chinese television subscription channel Sichuan Satellite TV and was filmed in Shanghai. The castings were held in selected cities of China — Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, and Guangzhou. It began airing on January 13, 2008. The first three season under Sichuan TV were presented by Chinese supermodel Li Ai.

After a three year break, the show saw a fourth season premiering on the Chinese Travel Channel, which was hosted by Shang Wenjie. The producers of the show failed to secure the rights for a fifth season on the Travel Channel, and the show was renamed 'I Supermodel' to avoid copyright infringement.

The official version of the show was renewed once again on a separate channel, Chongqing TV, in 2015. It is the first season of the show to feature male contestants within the cast.[1]
