Unlike on the American version, which generally has 13 or 14 contestants, the Finnish series begins with only 11 or 12 models. There are fewer reward challenges, or challenges with winners but no reward. In the early cycles there were more photo shoots than on the American version, usually two per episode. The finalists do not participate in a fashion show at the end of the competition. The final decision is based solely on the contestants’ photo portfolio and overall performance during the competition. Since cycle 6, male participants were allowed to apply introducing a co-ed edition.
