Heidi Klum will host German version of Next Top Model

Project Runway host and executive producer Heidi Klum is making an unusual move: she’ll be hosting a version of a competing show. Klum will front the German version of America’s Next Top Model, which is hosted stateside by Tyra Banks.

Variety has few details about her new gig, but notes that “Germany joins Australia, France, Russia, the U.K., Thailand, the Philippines, Sweden, Norway and Denmark in licensing the format rights for the UPN” series.

In addition to wrapping production on the second season of the Bravo series, Klum also recently posed naked for Vitals Woman magazine.
