Scandinavia's Next Top Model, Cycle 3 (Original Title: Top Model: Milano) was the second Cycle of the Scandinavian reality television show, based on the original concept from America's Next Top Model. It was broadcast on TV3 in Denmark, Norway and Sweden by Viasat. After New York and Paris, the third Cycle was filmed in Milan and other locations in Italy.

Once again each country started an internal competition with nine girls and a national top model eliminating one after other together with her own panel of judges until three girls were left in each country.

At that point the pre-selection was over and the last nine girls competed together and against each other. Although each of the participating countries did the same photo shoots and visited the same locations the girls were never supposed to meet each other before the merge.

As every country had a reserved spot in the shows final top 3, the competition remained between the national finalists until only one Danish, Swedish and Norwegian girl was left when a special jury, led by US-American fashion expert Cynthia Garrett, determined who the winner would be.

While Anne P and Kathrine Sørland hosted for the third time, Mini Anden was replaced by model-colleague Malin Persson in Sweden.

It was also Sweden that represented the winner with Freja Kjellberg Borchies, making it the first time that a Norwegian contestant did not win the competition.

As of now, this remains to be the last Cycle of ScNTM since both Norway and Sweden started to have separate NTM shows from this year on.

Denmark's Pre-Selection[edit]

The Danish contestants

Denmark's Next Top Model, Cycle 3 was the third Danish pre-cycle of Scandinavia's Next Top Model shown on TV 3, where nine girls competed for one of three spots to represent their country on SNTM where they were joined by three other girls from each Norway and Sweden. The Show was again hosted by Anne P, who was also the main judge until the three countries merged when Cynthia Garrett took over.

This Cycle marked the first time in the shows history that a contestant withdrew from the competition making room for Line Vangaard Nielsen, who was eliminated in the semifinals before. Among the competitors was Cecilia Kristensen, who already won several beauty peagants including the Title of Miss Scandinavia in 2003 and participated at the Miss World Contest, originally from Sweden, she was already a minor celebrity in the neighrbour country. However, her attempt to become a Top Model in Denmark was rather unsuccessful as she was sent home in the third episode.[1]

Once again the last Danish girl in the competition was named Anna and once again she lost out against one of the other contestants making Denmark the only participating country never having won the show.

Sweden's pre-selection[edit]

The Swedish contestants

Sweden's Next Top Model, Cycle 3 was the third Swedish pre-cycle of Scandinavia's Next Top Model shown on TV 3, where nine girls competed for one of three spots to represent their country on SNTM where they were joined by three other girls from each of Norway and Denmark. For the first time Malin Persson hosted the show, taking over from Mini Anden; the three countries merged when Cynthia Garrett took over.

The show saw a twist when Ebba Söderström entered the competition and Sandra Nilsson got eliminated outside of judging panel before the very first photoshoot. Among the contestants have also been Kristina Svensson, who was a semifinalist on the second cycle of the show but refused to get photographed in a swimsuit back then stating it would be sexist, and Emma Johansson who soon got known for her attitude and comments in which she criticized the modelling business and commercial models such as Heidi Klum.[2]

In the end Freja Kjellberg Borchies was named the winner of the entire show and therefore took the title to Sweden for the very first time.
