Top Model (formerly Top Model. Zostań modelką (English: Top Model. Become a Model)) is an ongoing reality documentary based on Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model that places contestants from Poland against each other in a variety of competitions to determine who will win the title of the next Polish Top Model and a lucrative modeling contract with NEXT agency as well as an appearance on the cover of the Polish issue of Glamour and a nationwide Max Factor campaign in hopes of a successful future in the modeling business.
The competition is hosted by Polish American supermodel Joanna Krupa who serves as the lead judge alongside fashion designer Dawid Woliński, runway coach Katarzyna Sokołowska and photographer Marcin Tyszka. Anja Rubik has made several guest appearances throughout the show's run.
|Joanna Krupa||Head Judge|
The challenge usually focuses on an element important to modeling which will help the contestants improve for the week's photo shoot. 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 their 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 models' performance in the week's challenge, photo shoot, and general attitude, the judges deliberate and decide which contestant must leave the competition. Once the judges have made their decision, the models are called back into the room. The host calls out the names of the contestants who performed well in the challenge and photo shoot, handing them a copy of their best photo from the shoot. The models whose names have not been called are given criticism about why they have landed in the bottom and ultimately one contestant is eliminated from the competition.
