Fashion industry insiders have branded New Zealand's Next Top Model a sham after it emerged at least two finalists were catwalk professionals.
Application forms said contestants were not eligible for the TV3 reality show if they had modelled in "a national campaign within the last five years".
They also said any girl who made it on to the show had to cancel existing agency contracts.
TV3's website went further - describing the show as a chance for the winner to "launch herself into the world of professional modelling".
But two of the final 13 - Ajoh Chol and Rebecca Rose Harvey were represented by agencies when they auditioned.
The series starts on our screens on March 13th, presumably filling the slot of America's Next Top Model on Friday nights. Anna has started up a thread to discuss the most recent episode of ANTM (and Project Runway if you follow that too).
