Sims Next Top Model, often abbreviated SNTM, is a reality TV show in which a number of aspiring models compete to win prizes such as a cover and spread in various famous fashion magazines, cash prizes, and much more. 

Format

Each season sees a number of model hopefuls competing in different challenges involving fashion, modelling and social media as well as photo shoots for magazines and brands. The smallest number of contestants is 8 (as seen in seasons 7, 8 and 14) while the largest number is 16 (as seen in season 2). Lately, each season features between 10 and 12 girls. Each week, one or more elimination takes place based on the models' performance. In some seasons, the viewers get an opportunity to influence the results by, for example, scoring each model's photo or by voting for one to receive immunity. Most seasons have begun in the United States, and in the earlier seasons the models would move to a new location once about 8-6 girls remained, with some shorter trips taking place earlier on in the seasons. In more recent seasons, the models travel more sporadically, and seasons 9 and 12, also known as World Tour and World Tour II, took on travelling as an important aspect of the show, as the models went to a new destination almost every single week, attempting to simulate the life of a busy, working model.

In many of the earlier seasons, with some exceptions, the series cast for contestants solely in the United States, meaning majority of the contestants in these seasons were US Americans. Recently, the show casts models from all over the world, and encourages girls from remote locations with few opportunities to apply. Season 3 cast in Asia and in the Americas, with the final cast consisting of seven (mostly east) Asian girls and seven Americans. Season 10 only accepted girls from Oceania, and the cast of season 11 consisted of six US Americans and six South Koreans.
