If you are watching on Hulu beware of the language..

Apparently Australia has a different rating system than America... Watching this on Hulu they say the f word along with several other curse words. Just beware before you watch in the presence of children.

This title has:

Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Australia's Next Top Model begins with a bang -- within 10 minutes of meeting the host, all 10 finalists are asked to model on a runway, experience notwithstanding. It's a promising start -- even exhilarating -- but despite the sun-soaked locale (Sydney) and engaging accents, the series is missing an important ingredient: familiarity. America's Next Top Model viewers know its cast of characters --Tyra Banks, Janice Dickinson and later Twiggy -- but in Australia's Next Top Model, viewers get Heynatz, who seems pretty and successful enough, but she's no Tyra. Still, there are plusses: Models are actually told they're too thin, which is refreshing. The contestants also get reminders that models are much more than their looks -- that they need to sparkle and shine, personality-wise.
