Top Model po-russki (rus. Топ-модель по-русски — Russia's Next Top Model) is a Russian reality documentary, and the second Russian adaptation of Tyra Banks', America's Next Top Model after You are a Supermodel which aired from 2004 to 2007, and had four cycles.
The show places a group of young contestants from Russia against each other in a variety of challenges to determine who will win title of the next Russian Top Model along with a lucrative modelling contract, and other prizes in the hope of a successful future in the modeling industry.
The competition was formerly presented by Russian TV Host Kseniya Sobchak. The panel of the first cycle was composed of host Kseniya Sobchak, top model Inna Zobova, fashion designer Elena Suprun, and photographer Mikhail Korolev.
For Cycle 2, Suprun and Korolev left the show. They were replaced by male model Danila Polyakov, and stylist, fashion designer and TV presenter Vlad Lisovez.
For season four, all members of the judging panel (along with host Kseniya Sobchak, were removed from the show. The new host of the series has been revealed to be Irina Shayk. The remaining members of the judging panel are J. Alexander, Tess Feuilhade, and Vincent McDoom.
Show Format Changes
The fourth cycle of the show is currently being held under the slogan "Top model in a new way!". Producers of the show ultimately decided to scrap the old format of the show, and begin anew with a revamped judging panel, host, logo, along with stricter requirements for applying contestants.
