The show was first produced by Chinese television subscription channel Sichuan Satellite TV and was filmed in Shanghai. The castings were held in selected cities of China — Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, and Guangzhou. It began airing on January 13, 2008. The first three seasons under Sichuan TV were presented by Chinese supermodel Li Ai.
After a three-year break, the show saw a fourth season premiering on the Chinese Travel Channel, which was hosted by Shang Wenjie. The producers of the show failed to secure the rights for a fifth season on the Travel Channel, and the show was renamed I Supermodel to avoid licensing issues. The official version of the show was renewed once again on a separate channel, Chongqing TV, in 2015. It was the first season of the show to feature male contestants within the cast.
