Norway's Next Top Model (also known as Top Model Norge) is a Norwegian reality television show based on the original American version, airing on TV3. The first cycle aired in 2006, after part years of participating in Scandinavia's Next Top Model along with Sweden and Denmark. The prize was a model contract with Trump Model Management, a campaign with cosmetic brand Make Up Store, and a cover of the Norwegian magazine Woman. The show was hosted by Kathrine Sørland. The three coaches are model coach Herve Bernard, runway coach J. Alexander and posing coach Mariana Verkerk.
After three Cycles of being part of the Scandinavian co-production Norway had its first individual Cycle (officially counted as Cycle 4) in September 2006 featuring 12 girls. The winner was Maria Eilertsen from Stavanger.
Cycle 5 premiered on 3 September 2007. It was hosted by Vendela Kirsebom, who was also hosting Sweden's Next Top Model at the same time. Starting with 13 girls, ranging between the ages of 16 - 27, the second cycle was won by Kamilla Alnes from Ålesund.
With Martina Lervikg, another girl from Ålesund also won the sixth Cycle which was running from September to December 2008.
In Early 2010 castings for a new Cycle were announced. The age limit of the girls has been set down to 14. The seventh Cycle was taped in summer 2010 but did not went on air before February 7, 2011. Kirsebom was replaced by former Miss Universe Mona Grudt making her the third host of Top Model Norge.
