Heidi Klum Statement

I am so excited to be in my hometown of Los Angeles with such a talented group of designers and judges for season two.  This last year brought so many unforeseen challenges across the globe, so I feel grateful that we were able to safely film as Tim and I continue our journey to find the next great global fashion brand.
