Iconic fashion and model-based reality show America’s Next Top Model is reportedly launching in the Middle East.

According to The National, the show is set to be entitled Arabia’s Next Top Model, with a teaser clip reportedly in the works ahead of the official announcement.

The outlet also reported that no judges or host have been appointed yet and it’s also not known if the reality show will be open to both male and female contestants.

The Next Top Model franchise was first launched in 2003 in the USA under the direction of Tyra Banks and Ken Mok who handpicked aspiring models to take part in the competition to become ‘America’s Next Top Model’.

The competition consists of a series of challenges and a weekly photo shoot, all judged by a panel of experts. A model is eliminated each week, with an eventual winner being named who receives prize money and a modelling contract.

Over the years, the franchise has expanded globally with versions in the UK, Asia, Africa, Germany, Australia and more.

Many reality television franchises have made their way to the region over the years including Project Runway Middle East, Arabs Got Talent, The Voice and most recently The Real Housewives of Dubai.
