Criticism of her voice is probably the smallest problem for Heidi Klum, as previous candidates have commented publicly about the allegedly poor conditions on the set.

Viral Youtube video

Former model candidate Legana Kagua was one of Heidi’s “girls” in 2020. Two weeks ago she published in Youtube Video “The Next German Supermodel – What’s Really Happening Behind the Scenes?”.

The video begins with an announcement that she will breach the contractual confidentiality agreed with ProSieben.

Then, in a 28-minute video, she talks about her experience on the set of a modeling shoot. She says her makers juggled interviews or cut scenes together. This puts it in a bad light.

“30 girls locked up, without a cell phone, without anything. Tension is inevitable.”

For example, the editors asked participants to repeat the suggestive question they had just asked. As a result, words were put into their mouths that they did not utter in this context. So the phrase “I thought she (the other candidate) was good, so I think she’ll keep going” becomes “Tamara hasn’t been good at all this week, but I think she’ll keep going.” “Thirty girls are locked up, without a cell phone, and without anything,” Kagwa explains. Stress is inevitable.

Kaggwa says she was portrayed as a prostitute to increase ratings. When the show aired, it was met with a wave of hate on the internet. As a result, she later suffered from depression and insomnia.

Some are making criticisms that we take seriously. Others – like Natalie Falk – have made baseless claims eight years later.” The announcer said that Kagwa and Falk Mail Obtained from «ProSieben».

Guenther Klum’s statement

Heidi’s father, Gunter Klum, reports On his website He explains: “GNTM was and remains an entertainment program intended to amuse the viewer. How does this happen?
