According to sources, Iliana Papageorgiou is set to return for another season to the role of judge on popular television reality series Greece’s Next Top Model, where she began her TV career four years ago.
The 34 year old, 1.76-metre-tall model and presenter is currently completing the season in Style me Up on ALPHA and already looking for her next career project.
According to information from the show “Pame Danai”, Iliana has accepted a proposal from the producers of GNTM, which will continue to be aired next TV season.
It is still not clear whether the fashion reality show will go to air in the first or second half of the season.
Once she returns from a planned vacation abroad to Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Jamaica, Iliana will then make the final arrangements for her return to GNTM.
Greek model Vicky Kaya assumed the role of Tyra Banks from the original US series as the head of the search as well as a mentor for the contestants for the first two seasons and from season three all four judges are the head of the search for the contestants.
The basic premise of the series is a group of young contestants who live together in a house for several weeks while taking part in various challenges, photo shoots and meetings with members of the modelling industry.
One ‘poor-performing’ contestant is usually eliminated each week until the last contestant remaining is declared “Greece’s Next Top Model” and receives a modelling contract along with other associated prizes.
Although cast as the presenter since the first series to air in Greece, Vicky Kaya, will not be returning to the reality show, as the former model will instead continue to present Dancing With The Stars next year.
Greek fashion model Ismini Papavlasopoulou, previously, Iliana’s co-judge, is not expected to return to GNTM as her collaboration with STAR has been completed.
