The Israeli model has revealed the down side to being known as one of the most beautiful women around.

The 27-year-old star claims potential suitors are put off chatting her up as a result of Maxim magazine awarding her the 2012 hottest woman in the world title.

“I only can be with someone who has a healthy self-esteem. If he chats me up he’s in the short list,” Bar revealed to German magazine In.

“Most men find me intimidating, I guess. I don’t consider myself to be the most beautiful woman in the world, that’s just not true.”

The occasional actress revealed more about her new TV project for German channel ProSieben. The challenge contest is called Million Dollar Shooting Star and will see the supermodel travel to different exotic locations with ten contenders. The contestants have to get a perfect photograph in various challenging environments, such as blistering heat and freezing cold. The show will begin next year and Bar’s role will be a judge alongside model agent Peyman Amin and photographer Oliver Gast.

“Of course I want to be successful with Million Dollar Shooting Star,” Bar explained. “But I’m not afraid of failure.”

Bar got a taste for reality TV when she served as a guest judge on cycle four of Germany’s Next Top Model hosted by Heidi Klum. When asked about the show’s similarities, Bar denied there is any rivalry between the two series or tension between her and Heidi.

“Everything’s good between me and Heidi!” Bar declared. “She doesn’t have to fear me as competition.” – COVER MEDIA
