Benelux' Next Top Model, Cycle 1 was the first cycle of Benelux' Next Top Model and the first season which include Dutch and Flemish contestants. It premiered on September 14, 2009 and lasted until November 16 of the same year.


Given the show was a merge between Holland's Next Top Model and the Belgian Topmodel which both follow the same format, the panel of judges as well as the contestants were representing both nations for one half.

The winner of the competition was 22-year-old Rosalinde Kikstra from Rotterdam. Her prizes were a €75,000 contract with Modelmasters The Agency, a cover of Beau Monde and ad campaigns for Max Factor and Gillette Venus Embrace.
