In a show that sounds very familiar to me, She’s Got the Look is premiering tomorrow, Thursday. I’ve personally never caught the show before, so I was on a mission to see what the show was exactly about.
What I found made me wonder why it was necessary to have two shows, based on modeling careers. Anyone? Anyone?
Okay, so what does She’s Got the Look and America’s Next Top Model really differ in? Well, She’s Got the Look doesn’t have Tyra Banks… and other than that, I’m not seeing the difference.
“Ten aspiring models, all over the age of 35, share a New York house as they learn what it takes to become a supermodel. Each week, contestants are eliminated on the way to the crowning of the ultimate winner, who receives a lucrative contract with Wilhelmina Models Inc., a feature in Self magazine and $100,000. Judges include celebrity stylist Robert Verdi, Wilhelmina president Sean Patterson and supermodel Beverly Johnson. Kim Alexis hosts.”
Okay, so the prize doesn’t feature Elite Model Management, but hey– I hope that being on She’s Got the Look does better things for your career than being on America’s Next Top Model.
Here’s what TV Land has to say about this upcoming second season:
“TV Land’s hit reality series “She’s Got The Look” returns this June for a second season as ten new finalists – all over the age of 35 — compete to become the next great supermodel. The series, which is hosted by supermodel Kim Alexis, is a collaboration with Wilhelmina Models, Inc., and sets out to discover a sophisticated, beautiful and confident woman 35 or older destined to become the next “it” girl of the fashion industry. In addition to a contract with Wilhelmina Models, Inc., and a photo spread in SELF Magazine, this season’s winner will now also receive a check for $100,000. Supermodel Beverly Johnson, who made history as the first African-American model to appear on the cover of AmericanVogue, celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and Wilhelmina president Sean Patterson are all featured as judges on the series. Emmy Award-Winner Allison Grodner ( “Big Brother,” “Blowout” ) will return as executive producer. “She’s Got The Look” will premiere in TV Land Prime, the network’s new primetime programming block designed to appeal to the attitudes, life stage and interests of people in their 40s. RoC® is the presenting sponsor of “She’s Got The Look.”
The second season of “She’s Got The Look,” which expands from six episodes to eight, chronicles a nationwide model search resulting in bringing 20 contenders to New York City. These semi-finalists will be put to the test and face an immediate challenge, from which ten finalists will be selected to live in a New York City loft. The ten finalists will compete in photo shoots, a video shoot and high fashion runway shows.
From a feisty rocker to an elegant grandmother of eight to a former military officer to a strong-willed beauty who was homeless just nine years ago, this season’s finalists are all accomplished and diverse women with unique life stories competing with six other stunners for the grand prize.”
