The fifteenth cycle of Sims' Next Top Model will premiere in December, 2016. It is the first season of the main series since Revamped which aired February to July of 2015.

The prizes this cycle are:

  • A cover and spread in Vogue Italia.
  • An international Max Factor campaign.
  • A 1½ year long modelling contract with NU女 Models.
  • A cash prize worth € 25,000.

Changes and twistsEdit

With the show having been on a long hiatus, many changes took place to keep the show modern. Most importantly is the absence of previous judges Tyra Banks, who hosted since cycle 1, and Laura van Fark, who judged since cycle 12. Instead, they were replaced by fashion model and SaintPita alumna Yachana Vazirani, and male model, photographer and host of Sims' Next Top Male Model Maicle Gambardella.

TwistsEdit

  • Comeback: This season featured a comeback at the end of week four.
  • Top Model of the Week: Top Model of the Week (TMotW or simply TMW for short) returns from Revamped. Each week the audience votes on who they thought did the best, and the winner receives immunity. A difference from Revamped, however, is that rather than receiving immunity the week of the photo shoot, the winning model will be announced the following week to give immunity greater meaning. Another twist this adds is that if a model places in the top half of the poll but is eliminated, she would be saved.
  • Winner's Suite: There is a special bedroom in the Top Model House called the Winner's Suite, in which the model who received best photo by the judges will get the stay the following week. With this comes special gifts such as clothing and beauty products.
  • Wildcard: This season featured wildcard Brenda, who joined the competition after the first elimination after applying late.
