The third GNTM episode is a challenge for the girls. What could be better in the heat of Costa Rica than a nude shoot?
Photo series with 38 pictures
Although Heidi specially invited experienced photographer Vicky Lawton for the intimate shoot on a horse on the beach, there is still a whole crew of men around! All girls, except for the minor Julia, who can wear a pair of panties, have to strip naked. Transgender model Lucy is unsure to present herself as “God” created ,, because unfortunately , was “created a little wrong by God”. Fortunately, there is tape!
You can see the nude shoot of the candidates above in the video,
Even Curve-Johanna is not so relaxed about the nude shoot because of , “problem areas”. But photographer Vicky praises , and thinks , is “a bit like Kate Upton”. Still, for many girls, the intimate shoot is anything but easy. How best to lean on the horse? How to skilfully hide the genital area? And please: Don't just “flatten your breasts with your hand!”

Spontaneously Heidi decides to have some of the girls photographed naked in the water. Perhaps also because “nude princess” and natural talent Tamara also find it “the greatest challenge” to pose on a horse: “Sitting on the thing is difficult, dude!” Complains the “beauty model”.
While star photographer Lawton is “dissatisfied” with the “androgynous” Malin, Valeria, the woman with the special face, emerges as the winner of the shoot. When , then announced to the other girls that , had been told that , was “the best” of all, many of the young models made long faces.
“The toughest catwalk ever”
Who will receive a photo? Which candidate is jiggling? The decision as to who will make it to the next round will be made after the “toughest catwalk ever”. Because the girls still have their difficulty walking on high shoes. And it doesn't necessarily look like they're doing great. This is rightly absolutely incomprehensible to Heidi. The girls get help with “catwalk training” from Joan Smalls – “one of the most successful models in the world”.
Additional difficulty: it's a water walk! Many lurch and slip, there are falls. Saskia in particular has to take hard criticism. Even photographer Vicky thought that , was “not a model and unnatural”. After , walk, the damning judgment of Joan Smalls: You have to be more than “a blender”. And so Heidi unfortunately has no photo for Saskia.
The boss had also organized a “teaching” with the girls beforehand. The result is not necessarily impressive. Tamara's Walk looks “bad”. Fortunately, , has a face “from another era” and looks “like a noblewoman”.
And of course the beautiful, androgynous Malin has a “high recognition value”, but Heidi always has the impression that , feels “uncomfortable”. “Do you really want that? Do you really want to show yourself to the world?” The spark that , wanted to become a professional model did not really jump over during the nude shoot. Finally, , unconvincing walk. Thus, unfortunately, Malin can also go home. Because if you want to step in Heidi's footsteps, you have to “outgrow” yourself. “Attitude” alone is not enough, you also have to show that “what is behind it”.
