Shock at Heidi Klum’s young models: In the episode of “Germany’s Next Top Model” broadcast on ProSieben on Thursday evening, three candidates were thrown out in the big decision. The reactions were correspondingly appalled: “We are all in shock.”

The 21-year-old law student Eliz, who wore it with composure, had to go, the curvy model Zoey, who couldn’t believe it (“I’m out, I? That really can’t be”) and the 1.94 meter tall Emilia, who lost her composure and burst into tears straight away. For all three it was: “Unfortunately I don’t have a photo for you today.”

Candidate Mirella, who was luckier, said it showed “that nothing is impossible and that Heidi keeps laying out and re-rolling the cards”.
