For over 10 cycles and over a decade, Australia’s Next Top Model has had a loyal following across the country.
Some of its winners have gone on to really crack the modelling world, and others decided it wasn’t for them, bowing out and following a different path.
This is where all the winners are now.
Cycle One – Gemma Sanderson
Gemma Sanderson was 22 and living in Newcastle when she took out the inaugural Australia’s Next Top Model crown in 2005.

Cycle Four – Demelza Reveley
After 16-year-old Demelza Reveley took out Cycle Four of the show in 2008, Vogue editor Kirstie Clements controversially opted not to run her eight-page spread as a cover story despite the fact it was named as one of her prizes in the show.
Reveley walked in Sydney’s Fashion Week in 2009 and was the face of Sydney’s Strand Arcade, posing as Alice in Wonderland at around the same time.
