LOS ANGELES, CALIF., April 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Fans of The CW Network’s hit series “America’s Next Top Model” can have their own model experience in New Zealand, following the show’s trip to the breathtaking island nation in last night’s episode. Tourism New Zealand and Air New Zealand have announced a special offer for fans who find the backdrop just as stunning as the models featured in three episodes, the first of which screened last night with two more airing May 5 and May 12 at 8 p.m./7 p.m. Central on The CW.
“I chose New Zealand as a ‘Top Model’ location because it is a place that a lot of Americans, particularly young Americans, think of as a fantasy destination,” said Tyra Banks, the host and series creator. “I was very impressed to learn that New Zealand is such a fashion forward country. The models and I loved exploring the hip boutiques and cool restaurants.”
“People hear ‘New Zealand’ and they think of great outdoor experiences and beautiful landscapes,” says Tourism New Zealand Chief Executive Kevin Bowler. “’America’s Next Top Model’ will show the stylish side of the world’s youngest country, where local designers like Karen Walker and Zambesi, and events like New Zealand Fashion Week and World of Wearable Art are pushing the boundaries of the industry.”
