The two experienced models then watched together the first Walk of the evening of the finalists, which was under the motto “Girl Power”. After their respective performances in XXXL dresses – garnished with feminist slogans such as “God is a Woman” – all three each held a flaming plea equality between man and woman. Thomas Gottschalk then took the bench next to Banks and Klum to award the Personality Award.
