She failed to win over Heidi Klum
as a contestant on Germany's Next Top Model, but Hana Nitsche
appears to be having the last laugh after securing a high-profile job as the face of PETA's latest campaign.
The black-and-white poster shows the 25-year-old posing naked, with the tagline: 'Fur? I'd rather go naked!'
She follows in the footsteps of Pamela Anderson, Alicia Silverstone and Eva Mendes in supporting the animal rights group.
Klum is a notable absence from the line-up of PETA ambassadors, though the company did approach the supermodel back in 2008 as part of a plea to stop stars wearing Armani after it used fur in a winter collection.
Nitsche admitted that she found the Germany's Next Top Model host intimidating during filming of the show back in 2007.
'She was a bit intimidating,' the model told FOX411.
'It’s such a strange feeling to stand in front of a model who always been your idol, and now she is a judge and criticising you.'
Though she has been modelling for four years now, she admitted that she still got nervous in front of the camera - particularly in the case of the PETA campaign.
'I get so nervous and shy, you would not even believe it’s the same girl from the pictures,' she admitted.
Since appearing on the hit television show, Nitsche has appeared in campaigns for a number of major brands, including Herbal Essences and Maybelline. She has also appeared on the cover of German Maxim.
Nitsche was beaten to the title of Germany's Next Top Model by Barbara Meier, who has also gone on to enjoy a successful career in the industry.
The 24-year-old redhead has since appeared in Cosmopolitan and Grazia and done campaigns for brands such as Pantene ad Disneyland.
Klum has hosted Germany's Next Top Model since its launch 2006. The American version of the show famously hosted by Tyra Banks.
