GNTM was either not turned on at all or just out of old habit. Heidi Klums always the same sayings, the weird no-name jurors at her side and at the thought of a Klumsches "Dear Meeeeeedchen" are the hackles on us. But since Season 9, something has changed - Wolfgang Joop (69) sits on the jury and is already the winner of the heart of "Germany's Next Top Model". We reveal why the designer has conquered our hearts.
