Supermodels is a Romanian reality documentary and modeling competition hosted by designer Catalin Botezatu. Prior to hosting the show, Botezatu was the host of the Romanian adaptation of Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model.


After suffering from an illness the year after the filming of the third cycle of Next Top Model, the show entered a hiatus. Ultimately, Botezatu abandoned his role as head judge of the show, whose cancellation remains unconfirmed. Shortly after his departure, Botezatu took on the role of head judge and host on Supermodels. Supermodels more closely derives its format from The Face, although an official endorsement from the franchise does not exist.

Show format

Each contestant is divided into an individual team in the beginning of the series. Generally the contestants participate in a weekly challenge. The segment is then followed by the models performing in a photo shoot. After the shoot, one team is saved from elimination, and two contestants from the losing teams are put up for elimination. The judges then decide which contestant will leave the competition. About two-thirds of the way through the competition, no team is saved from elimination. The judges nominate several contestants for elimination and vote on which of the nominated contestants they will eliminate.
