    i think they are influenced by the Finnish version - Suomen huippumalli haussa, so they are like, why not Eesti Tippmodell?

    because top model is obviously "huippumalli" in Finnish. so yeah, basically they're using their own language's word for it since it's after all in Estonia and they probably think no one else is ever going to see it.

    yup. huippu is top, malli is model, and together, they are huippumalli (it's not some made up word, it's real. but if you hear people calling it "huippis" then it's made up because it's a nickname and shortened version). same in Estonian, tipp is top and modell well you can gues that easily.

    because no one in Finland would say "Suomi top model" because it sounds just plain odd. even "America's next top model" has gotten a translated name when it's shown in Finnish and you guessed it, it's "Amerikan huippumalli haussa". same with the other NTM shows (Australia, Britain) they show here.

    (as a side note to that I actually got to say that at least these have been given a straight translation from the English name instead of some pathetic Finnish version. like there's the tv-show called New Girl, Finnish name: three guys and a girl, even though they could have easily just translated new girl straight into Finnish or better, kept the original name)

    I know, I hate it. I absolutely hate the fact that we basically need to translate the names of the shows even if they were clear enough in English they even couldn't properly translate How I Met Your Mother to Finnish... since now it's actually called "AT FIRST SIGHT". idk do the guys even have any clue what the show is about. and The Big Bang Theory is called "frosted glasses". wtf.


    OKAY, BACK TO TOPIC. not that I actually have anything new to tell about Estonia's Next Top Model atm.

    We have the word SENDVIČ here too. And i can make a pretty damn good sendvič!

    its a possibility, i think maybe it could've been a challenge and they only selected five winners to walk?

    Well, I have to say that I'm impressed. If that's the final 5, then I can't be mad because those 5 girls look like models. When does this show premier?
