Bratz Next Top Model (often abbreviated as BNTM) is a YouTube show in which a number of Bratz, Moxie Girlz and Monster High dolls compete for the title of Bratz Next Top Model and a chance to start their career in the modeling industry. As of Cycle 3, only Bratz dolls could compete. It is based upon the television show, America's Next Top Model.
The show was created and hosted by MizzLotte98 who also serves as the head judge and executive producer of the show. The first "cycle" premiered in July 2011. The opening themes are often fashion, modeling or Bratz related songs in order to keep with the show's theme.
The show was initially cancelled on November 29, 2012.
On July 25, 2017, exactly six years after the show's original premiere, MizzLotte98 opened auditions for a reboot of the show.
Show Format (2011)Edit
Each season of Bratz Next Top Model 2011 had about 10 episodes and started with 10–13 contestants (with the exception of Cycle 3.5, which had eight). Each episode, one contestant is eliminated, though in rare cases a double elimination or no elimination was given by consensus of the judging panel. Usually, the runway show for the final 2 contestants was located in a foreign country.
The judging panel for Cycle 3.5 included MizzLotte98, BratzGlitzProduction (known as Brittany Layne), MrEoin1000 (known as Eoin Greally) and MizzChop01 (known as Brian Thomas). The second cycle's mentor was Cycle 1 winner, LolaAyou (known as Jasmine). The mentor for Cycle 3 was GlamGirl441, known as Alex, who was the winner of Cycle 2.
BNTM has recieved fairly good feedback, mainly from the contestants themselves.
Four cycles of BNTM aired before it's cancellation in 2012.

Cancellation and RebootEdit
The show was originally cancelled on November 29, 2012 by MizzLotte98. She wished to no longer continue with the show. An exact reason is unknown. The show, and the channels MizzLotte98 and MizzLotte98BNTM, were erased from YouTube on December 31, 2012.
On July 25, 2017, auditions were opened for a reboot of the show. Whilst it will technically be a continuation of the original series, the show will begin from Cycle 1. It is unlikely that the reboot will acknowledge much of the previous show beyond MizzLotte98's experience.
