Malta's Top Model is a Maltese reality documentary based on Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model and is aired on Favourite Channel. The show places contestants against each other in a variety tests to determine who will win title of the new Maltese Top Model as well as a modeling contract with a small modeling agency and the front cover of a local magazine in hopes of a promising career start in the modeling industry. Claire Amato equals the role of Tyra Banks in the original series as the head of the search, and mentor for the chosen finalists during the competition. Other judges are casting director Alan J. "Jay" Darmanin and challenge organizer Jeff Francalanza. The show started with a casting recap after which 14 girls were chosen, however 14th contestant Maria immediately withdrew after the competition started. Each week the 13 girls that were living together on the same island faced challenges and a weekly photo shoot whereupon the judges chose to eliminate one girl per episode. In addition to this, the viewers could vote for their favorite girl every week per SMS. 17 year-old Audrienne Thaipend won the competition over 25 year-old old Sanaa Rizgalla. This version of the show is the second installment worldwide to feature a trans woman among its finalists after America's Next Top Model cycle 11 alumna Isis King. Each girl was supported by her own Maltese sponsor.
