Episode summaries[edit]

Episode 1[edit]

First aired October 11, 2010

The next day after the Bootcamp, the 25 Models were photographed by Harry Christopoulos and Tassos Sofroniou in the streets of Mykonos. After the shooting the girls returned to Athens and waited anxiously for the meeting with the judges who would decide which 20 girls will begin their attempt to become the Next Top Model.

Back in Athens, the 20 models had to pose for the photographer Takis Diamantopoulos on the brink of the 20th floor of the President Hotel. Agni and Evangelia revealed to Tassos that they are afraid of heights and therefore the photo shoot was even more difficult for them. When the girls returned home they found their books with the best shots from the photo shoot. Maria’s book, however, was not there and so she left the house.

Eliminated outside of judging panel: Maria Markarian

Episode 2[edit]

First aired October 18, 2010

In this week’s photo shoot the girls had to pose in pairs of two in front of a damaged car. The concept was that the girls were fighting with each other about whose fault it was that they were stuck in the middle of nowhere. The girls at the beginning were reluctant to raise tons. Vicky took action impressed everybody with how convincingly she shouted and allegedly started fighting with them to show them how to play the role. The girls though were only 19, so one of them did not have a pair for the photo shoot. Vicky announced to everybody that Ioanna’s pair would be Monika, the runner up of the first Next Top Model.

  • Best photo: Elena Papadopoulou & Evangelia Koutalidou
  • Bottom two: Elektra Tsela & Kelly Vourtsi

Episode 3[edit]

First aired November 1, 2010

For this week's photo shoot the girls went to the zoo and had to pose with different animals like snakes or an eagle. The first one to react of course was Nancy. After a melt-down and almost a faint, she convinced Tassos to change her partner, so she posed with an eagle and had only 5 shots. Even though Nancy did horribly, Roubini was eliminated.

Episode 4[edit]

First aired November 8, 2010

For this week’s photo shoot the girls had to pose in swimsuits and into the arms of Greek actor Dimitris Vlachos. And while everyone thought that it would be more difficult for Nancy to do the photo shoot, Georgia struggled perhaps more on the set with Dimitris Vlachos, since he is her favorite actor. All the girls felt a little uncomfortable in the beginning but Vicky stimulated them by posing herself with Dimitris to show them how to do it right.

Episode 5[edit]

First aired November 15, 2010

For this week’s photo shoot the models had a difficult task. They had to be photographed naked using only balloons to cover parts of their bodies. Naturally the first to react negatively to the concept was Nancy. However, it was not only Nancy who didn’t feel good for this photo shoot. Almost all the girls were hesitant in the beginning. Georgia was uncomfortable in the beginning but once she was on the set she loosened up and had more fun than any of the other girls.

Episode 6[edit]

First aired November 22, 2010

The girls had to pose with different animals like a spider, worms or even a small crocodile as part of a perfume ad. Emily had her last chance to prove herself to the judges. It was a big shock when Nancy didn't react at all and took everything in.

  • Eliminated: Laura-Ann Markopoulioti
  • Featured photographer: Panzelis Zervos

Episode 7[edit]

First aired November 29, 2010

For this week's photo shoot the girls had to act like they were young again and try to imitate one of their baby photos (that their parents had given in but the girls didn't know that at that time). During the photo shoot their parents showed and gave courage to the girls to continue trying. Elena was emotionally overwhelmed so it distracted her from doing well. At the judging panel the judges tested their runway skills but the girls didn't do so well. The one to be eliminated was Fenia as her photo was horrible and her runway walk was even worse.

In the final week, the girls traveled to Istanbul to do some castings and a photo shoot. After the girls arrived, they headed to explore the city. Later, they met Tasos with a famous Turkish TV presenter and producer, Acun Ilıcalı. One of the girls would have the opportunity to be the co-host in his show. They were interviewed by Acun and also the managers of the channel Show TV. The winner was Elena. After this the girls went shopping in the market of Istanbul. The next day they met again Tasos and informed them that Cindy and Ioanna would have a casting in Turkish Marie Claire for an editorial they are doing, in which Cindy won. Elena and Evangelia would have had a casting for a famous Turkish designer, but it was cancelled. Before their photo shoot, the girls went to the hotel's spa to relax. At their photo shoot they met Vicky, and they posed as fairies inspired by One Thousand and One Nights. The next day the girls returned from Istanbul. Later they met Vicky and had a challenge, in which they had to present a product of NIVEA. The winner was Elena and won NIVEA products for one year. The other day, they went to their final photo shoot inspired by Annie Leibovitz Fairy tale and posed as Couture Women along with two children. Later, they were invited to dinner by Vicky where she advised and guided the girls for the last time before their final performance. The girls arrived where the fashion show for Christoforos Kontentos would take place. All of the girls impressed with their walk, even though Ioanna's heel broke and Cindy's belt came off during the runway.

At the final judging, all of the girls were praised for their performance at the photo shoots and runway show. After the first deliberation, two girls would be eliminated immediately. The first girl to be eliminated, despite her stunning photos, was Ioanna because of her lack of height and her not so strong performance in the runway show. The second girl to be eliminated, despite her very strong performance in the runway show, was Elena because of her lack of confidence and inability to transceive her personality into her photos, as well as her average performance in the entire competition.

  • Eliminated: Elena Papadopoulou & Ioanna Papagianni

As a result, Cindy and Evangelia made to the final two leading to two emotional eliminations. Cindy was praised for her photo shoots and runway show, as well as that even though she was too young she had a very strong performance in the entire competition. However, she was criticized for being too posey which didn't let her to show her real age and mood. Evangelia was praised for her photo soots and runway show, strong eyes and good personality. However, the judges worried that she would have a limited number of job offers and some people will love her and others will reject her. During the final deliberation, the judges were divided over their preference of the girls. After a long wait, the girls were called back and Vicky announced Cindy as the second winner of The Next Top Model.

  • Final two: Cindy Toli & Evangelia Koutalidou
  • Greece's Next Top Model: Cindy Toli
