AMERICA’S MOST SMARTEST MODEL(10 episodes)
Beauty is a double-edged sword. It seems to be a commonly accepted notion in today’s world that an inverse proportion exists between brains and beauty – the prettier someone is, the less intelligent they are expected to be. And no one has it worse than models. But is this assumption really true? Do smart models exist, or does a life devoted to getting by on one’s looks make a person stupid? Now, VH1 will attempt to answer this burning question in “America’s Most Smartest Model.” Hosted by celebrity fashion expert Mary Alice Stephenson and Emmy Award winner Ben Stein, this reality competition series brings together fourteen models, (7 men, 7 women) all of whom think they are the perfect combination of beauty and brains. In every episode the ‘himbos’ and ‘bimbos’ will face challenges that put both their overall intelligence and beauty to the test. In the end, only one model will prove that they are more than just another pretty face and take home a $100,000 prize and the coveted title of “America’s Most Smartest Model.”
“America’s Most Smartest Model,” is executive produced by Cris Abrego of 51 Pictures and Mark Cronin of Mindless Entertainment. Jeff Olde, Kristen Kelly, Jill Holmes, Alex Demyanenko, Stella Stolper and Michael Hirschorn are executive producers for VH1.
