Make Me a Supermodel is a British reality television modeling competition hosted and judged by New Zealander model Rachel Hunter, airing on the television channel Five. A U.S. version began airing 2 January 2008 on the cable network Bravo.

Series one (2005)[edit]

The series premiered Tuesday, 1 March 2005 and followed 13 young women (including twins) competing for a modelling contract with Select Model Management. The judges eliminated 10 contestants, with viewers voting for the winner among the final three – Kate Ellery, Alice Sinclair and Joanna Downes – in a live catwalk show presented by Tess Daly and Dave Berry. Sinclair was the first season's winner.

Series two (2006)[edit]

The second series premiered on Sunday, 15 October 2006 with a change in format from the first series: this time, male models were part of the competition. Each week, one male contestant and one female contestant would be eliminated, until the final catwalk, at which a winner was chosen. With the exception of the first elimination, it was all based on the public's votes. The live catwalk shows were presented by Fearne Cotton on Fridays.

Each week, the bottom four contestants (two male models, two female models) would face a live 'Walk Off', and the public would vote and the male and female model who received the lowest vote total from the public would be eliminated. In the first week, there was no 'Walk Off' - the judges decided which two of the models were the weakest and should be sent home.
