The resia Fischer reveals how it works behind the scenes at GNTM and how model mom Heidi Klum exploits the homesickness of the candidates.
Berlin – With “Germany’s Next Top Model” GNTM, the candidates hardly have any contact with home so that they can concentrate fully on the competition. This naturally creates a lot of homesickness. In order to give the girls some motivation, GNTM boss Heidi Klum allows the candidates to telephone for ten minutes once a week. It will but exactly the time stopped by the producers so that it won’t be anymore. Private cell phone use is strictly prohibited at GNTM and the candidates are not even allowed to bring their own cell phones (read here: GNTM (ProSieben):
The se are the candidates for the new 2021 season with Heidi Klum).
The resia Fischer (29), who took 11th place in the 14th season, the homesickness for her current husband was particularly great, because the two had never had so little contact (read here: GNTM: All 15 An overview of the winners of Heidi Klum’s casting show).
You want to show feelings and you show them, but you are still inhibited by the many producers and cameras.
The more tears in the show, the better.
In order for the cameras to be switched off for a phone call, something big must have happened, for example a death in the family, because that’s too private, which is why the producers turn off the cameras for 10 minutes.
Lots of leeway does not exist on the GNTM set. Whether the girls are homesick in this year’s season is just as great, although they stay in Germany, can be seen every Thursday at 8:15 pm on the TV channel ProSieben.
