Now Maribel's focus is on "Germany's Next Top Model". How she did in her first episode can be found in our GNTM live ticker for episode 2 *. 28 candidates are in the race this year and want to convince Heidi Klum * of her model qualities. As in 2019, the beautiful blonde from Bergisch Gladbach is the only permanent member of this year's jury *. In the second episode, Victoria's Secret angel Stella Maxwell is a guest (29). The show at ProSieben starts at 8:15 p.m. The girls then go to Costa Rica. And one thing should be revealed: the candidates from the first episode do not exactly respond positively to the stragglers. One thing could intensify the strife: One of the stragglers was allowed to accompany Heidi Klum to an important gala. The GNTM juror also attracted attention due to a curious video with a rock band.
