Yep, a new German "who´s gonna be the next supermodel"-show, this time by Bar Refaeli.

Anybody gonna watch it? I think I´ll give it a shot, although I don´t believe that shows like this will ever create a real high fashion model career. Never have, never will. Never ever.

But I love bitching about it ;)

...and Bar looks terrible average in it! I think she looks nearly chunky, more than some of her participants :nervous:

how did you like it? i missed most of it and watched about half an hour. i definitely can say that i hate peyman. i hated him from the first moment i saw him back on GNTM. he is such a jerk. and he is so rude, goddamnit! best thing is, as far as i know, he is literally a nobody in the fashion world. does anybody know him?

I stopped watching it somewhere during the second photoshoot.

So. Boring.

None of the girls really strikes me. They all look average, boring and totally forgettable to me - the one with the tattoos being the only exception, I love edgy girls like her, but her personality, or what they made her show of it, annoyed the fuck out of me. Okay, you don´t take shit from noone, we got it, you don´t need to repeat it every other minute.

And this girl who claimed to be Karl´s discovery? First of all - did he confirm it? And even if this is true - holy shit, I can´t even tell how much her whining annoyed me. "Ooooh, it´s so high, I can´t do this!" Well, then go home.

I don´t need to comment on this little rich girl, who decided to go home after half an episode because it´s "just too much" for her and she can´t take anymore. Woe is me.

And even the bitching and catfights, they appeared to be so staged, like they had a fucking script for it.

Bar? Why is she even a model? Why??? In that case I could be one, too. Her body is chunky and untoned and her face... I know I´ve seen it last night a couple of times, but if she stood in front of me at the supermarket now I wouldn´t recognize her. So. Average. And. Boring.

So - I stopped watching it halfway through, reading a book is just so much better.

My advice: Don´t waste your time on it.

My bf was master of the remote yesterday so I managed to see maybe 2 minutes. But that was sooo funny.
One girl was talking on the phone, complaining about beeing seriously hurt at a photoshoot and nobody cared.
Then they showed what happend and it was just a tiny scrape :lol: sooo ridiculous. And she said: this so crossed my limit of tolerance.

I could only see maybe 3-4 other girls but I can't believe they are all professional models. Especially one girl had really huge thighs...

Oh right, I forgot about HER... you´re right, she was so funny xD At first I thought they were kidding me... "seriously hurt" :lol: And did you see her face during the shoot when she "asked" to have the belt removed? She looked like a cheap pornstar faking an orgasm xD

I was actually surprised - those girls claimed to be real models, yet all they did was whine and complain: I can´t do this, it´s too high, oh God, I am seriously hurt, I don´t want to be naked (when in fact they were wearing a long skirt and their nipples were covered), I can´t take anymore (because someone didn´t glorify you?), it´s too much bla bla bla.

I always thought real models were a bit more professional?

Noo, I only saw that minute with the teleophone :(

I'm curious: Do you have other german tv channels in finland?

which one do you use, @JessicaChristine?
i only know tv-stream.to and most of the time it doesn't work.
i don't have a tv, so i use them, too.

peyman: die total bekannte stylistin, von der noch niemals jemand gehört hat, "hat schon zahlreiche produktionen mit ihren stylings bestückt." :wtf:
i mean, this is not even a live show. at least to try to say sentences that make a bit more sense.
@Elisa: i think he used to be somewhat influential when he worked at img, but this was ages ago. still, he's probably better known in the fashion world than let's say ... rolfe.

apparently, they had under 1 million viewers and the first episode was a huge flop. can't say i'm surprised, it was really boring.

Well, most of the time I just google "(channel name) live stream" and use try and error xD

tv-kino.net is quite good, xstreamx.5x.to also works well (but they have just a couple of channels), and one2stream.me isn´t too bad either :)

As for Peyman - I kinda like him, in an entertaining way, but I also liked Rolfe, sooooo... :p Can´t say anything about his reputation, though, since I´m not working in the industry. I just find it so funny how they claim everyone on the show to be THE biggest/most successful/most influencial/most whatever... yeah, sure... the best and most powerful people from fashion industry waste their time to make such a show, alright :nopity:

I think this show won´t last long, or at least they will air it a little later, soon, and not at prime time no more. Not a great loss xD

I hope these photos are from a documentary about Green Peace helping whales back into the ocean, not "Million Dollar Shootingstar".






And ex-fucking-cuse me, Bar, WHAT are you thinking?!
