Berlin – Candidate Jasmine has already made it through the first three rounds of the model show “Germany’s Next Top Model”. While other girls were already crying, the Austrian-by-choice was given very little airtime. But that may change, because the ambition of the 21-year-old student has been awakened. On the catwalk, the budding model recently received good criticism from Heidi Klum.
The 21-year-old was born in Passau and is studying in Vienna. This year a lot is different due to the Corona, including the shooting of the TV show, which this year took place exclusively in Berlin and not in LA.
Are you disappointed that the visit to Los Angeles and the stay in the model villa are canceled this year?
Jasmine: Of course it’s sad that you couldn’t shoot in LA in the bright sunshine. However, I have to admit that I am terribly afraid of flying and I am a little bit glad that I was spared the flight. For the most part, however, I’m very sad that I couldn’t experience LA.
This year’s season stands for diversity. What do you think a model has to bring with her in 2021?
The world of models is so diverse and there is so much on offer and in demand that I couldn’t name any “run-of-the-mill attributes” that you should bring along visually.
The competition never sleeps. Can you describe your strengths?
Jasmine: I am a team player, very direct and always give my honest opinion.
You are very open about your autoimmune disease, lupus. How are you and what message would you like to convey to girls who also suffer from chronic illnesses?
Jasmine: I’ve always been very open about it. I am doing very well again and I have hardly any complaints. However, one is very often reduced to one’s illnesses. But it is not my goal to be remembered as a “Lupus girl”. My illness doesn’t define me.
When a lot of girls live together in one heap, it’s certainly not easy. Is there really a catfight or is it not as bad as it often comes across on TV?
Jasmine: Sure, when 24 girls hang out all day, there is stress here and there, but you have to say that on TV it comes across as much more dramatic than it ultimately was. You also have to keep in mind that you only see a fraction of our coexistence.
What is your impression of Heidi Klum? Have you already spent a lot of time together?
Jasmine: Corona made contact with Heidi more difficult, of course. But it must be said that she had tips for everyone.
Can you already tell the readers what happens in the coming weeks?
Jasmine: A lot will happen! Even if we only shot in Berlin, we never got bored. Let yourself be surprised.
