Sims Next Top Model - Created by SCNTMuploads (2009 -)Edit
Also known as the re-boot of Sim City's Next Top Model (2008-2009), SNTM has been on the go for four years and has completed four cycles. After Cycle 4 finished a year long hiatus meant that Cycle 5 "All New" didn't begin until October 2012. Each cycle except the first has featured 14 models and Cycle 5 was the first to feature all star contestants Katoria Inez and Charley Tru-Ong from past seasons. However Charley was disqualified, a first for the series, in the second episode of Cycle 5. The show has produced many big names in the SNTM community, the fourth cycle proving to be the most controversial yet successful having 7 alumni signed to agencies right after the season finished airing. It was announced on 28th April 2013 that a short All-Stars Season would air in the Fall shortly after the 5th Cycle wraps. The upcoming 6th Cycle will be the first to feature both male and female models, and the second season to feature a semi finalist round and will air in early 2014.
