Her prize was a €50, 000 modeling contract with Max Models, a cover for Glamour magazine, three months of all expenses paid modelling in South Africa for Ice Models, and a Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Kim Petras is a German pop and a cappella singer-songwriter. She has been the subject of international news interest, having undergone gender transition at an early age. Kim Petras was born Tim Petras on 27 August 1992. Her parents, Lutz and Konni, have said that from the age of two, she began insisting she was a girl. It became apparent this was "not just a phase," and her parents tried to be supportive but made her wear gender neutral clothes in public. Eventually her parents sought professional help but struggled to find people who were knowledgeable on the subject. In time they found Bernd Meyenburg at Frankfurt University who was head of a clinic for children and had studied transsexuality since the 1970s.
