Holland's Next Top Model (often abbreviated as HNTM) is a Dutch reality television show based on America's Next Top Model.

Show format[edit]

Each season of Holland's Next Top Model has from 8–11 episodes and starts with 10–15 contestants. Each episode, one contestant is eliminated, though there have been cases of a double elimination or non-elimination by consensus of the judging panel. Makeovers are administered to contestants early in the season, and at least one trip to an international destination is scheduled.

Each episode covers the events of roughly a week of real time (however, while overseas, an episode roughly covers three to four days, totaling two weeks of filming abroad), and features a fashion challenge, photo shoot or commercial, judging, and critique of each contestant and her performance by the judging panel. Each episode is usually associated with a theme in the world of modeling, such as dealing with the press in interviews, selling a commercial product, appearing in a runway show or going on "go sees".

An episode usually begins with the contestants receiving training in an area concurrent with the week's theme. For example, contestants may get coached in runway walking, improvisational acting, or applying make-up to suit various occasions. A related challenge soon follows, such as a mock runway show or interview, and a winner is chosen by a judge. She receives a prize, such as clothing, a night out, or an advantage at the next photo shoot, and she is usually allowed to share the benefits with a certain number of other contestants of her choice.

The next segment is a photo shoot, and each contestant's performance will reflect heavily on her judging for that week. Each season features photo shoots such as bikini or lingerie shots, beauty shots, posing nude or semi-nude, posing with a male model, and posing with animal(s). Usually one photo shoot per season is replaced with a commercial shoot.

The final segment of each episode is judging. Each contestant's photo is then shown and evaluated by the judging panel. After all photos have been evaluated, the contestants leave the room as the judges deliberate. The elimination process is ceremonious, as the host hands out photos to the safe contestants one by one, in order of merit. The bottom two contestants are called forward for criticism, before it is revealed which of the two has been eliminated.

In the final episode of the show, the last three or four contestants remaining compete in a live finale.
