OBN Star Model is a Bosnian reality documentary based on Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model and is aired on OBN. The show puts contestants against each other in a variety of challenges to determine who will win title of the new Bosnian Star Model as well as a modelling contract with an agency in hopes of a promising career start in the modeling industry. Dejana Rosuljaš equals the role of Tyra Banks from the original series as the head of the search as well as a mentor for the chosen finalists. Other judges include Jan Štedul and Emerik Gudelj. Famous faces like Ivica Skoko or photographer Dejan Vekić have made guest appearances on the show.
The winner of cycle 1, was 22 year old Jelena Jugović from Pale.
In May 2010, the show returned with a second cycle that featured male contestants within the cast.
The winner of Cycle 2, was Vedran Pajo.
The challenge usually focuses on an element important to modeling which will help the models along the way, and help them improve for the week's photoshoot. A guest judge, who is unique to each episode, evaluates the contestants and decides the winner of each challenge. The winner of the challenge receives a prize for his/her victory. Sometimes, the challenge winner is permitted to choose a certain number of other contestants to receive a similar, but lesser, reward, while the others are given nothing.
Judging and Elimination
Based upon the contestants' performance in the week's challenge, photoshoot, and general attitude, the judges deliberate and decide which aspiring model must leave the competition. Once the judges have made their decision, the contestants are called back into the room. The host calls out the names of those who performed well in the challenge and photoshoot, handing them a copy of their best photo from the shoot. The remaining two contestants, whose names have not been called, are given criticism about why they have landed in the bottom two, and ultimately, one is eliminated from the competition. The contestant who is eliminated does not receive a photo.
