The number of contestants was also increased from 14 to 16 and reduced the final 4 to only 3 finalists in the finale episode. The judging panel was also completely revamped. Former model Jenny Shimizu, along with fashion photographer Perou, one of the judges in the original British version, French fashion designer Catherine Malandrino and international model scout Marlon Stoltzman all joined as judges. Beckford was no longer a judge, and instead became the sole host of the show and the mentor of the male competitors. Australian model Nicole Trunfio replaced Niki Taylor and became the mentor of the female competitors. Lastly, every week, the featured photographer would choose a model they felt worked the photo shoot the best, and that winning model and their pick would get to go on a casting. The winner of the competition received a $100,000, a fashion pictorial in Cosmopolitan, and a 1-year contract with New York Model Management. The winner of the competition was 18-year-old Branden Rickman from Central Point, Oregon, making him the youngest and first male model to win the show.
