Are we ready for yet another reality show about models?
The latest comes to us from Bravo: "Make Me a Supermodel" (at 10 p.m. Thursdays.) The hosts are super-duper models themselves, Niki Taylor and Tyson Beckford (pictured), who showed up this morning on "Today" to promote their show.
Hey, I picked up on a trend. Camel hair - big!
But, I digress.
Anyway, the reality show will have 14 wannabe models competing - seven men and seven women. Bravo viewers can help by voting on their favs - a la "American Idol" - during "Supermodel's" 12-week run.
On Bravo's Web site, the term "naked ambition" pops up in a description of the show. Also, as has been my expierence with models, they're quick-change artists, so don't be surprised if you see a little skin. Not much, just a little.
Host Taylor says the show won't be about catfights ("They won't be arguing over Red Bulls"), but will be about catwalk challenges. And, of course, what would a reality show be if it didn't include an exploration of friendships and romance, as the Web site says?
The 14 will compete for $100,000 and a modeling contract with New York Model Management (Think: Elle Macpherson.)
Buckle up - sounds like a wild ride!
