Bravo goes on a model "Manhunt"
Bravo has ordered eight episodes of Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model for fall. The cable network, which scored with Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, will scout 15 hopefuls in a competition for a contract from modeling agency IMG.
Well it had to happen. :yay Bravo :yay for Bravo for doing this. You know I'll be watching.
I saw a teaser preview for this last night during the rerun of Boy Meets Boy
Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model
Premieres 10/9pm Wednesday, October 13
This fall, Bravo turns the world of modeling on its high-heels by focusing the camera on the ever-neglected world of male fashion models with the first-ever search for the hottest male model. Watch as unsuspecting men are plucked from the streets and invited to participate in a series of challenges to determine who has the looks, style, stamina and charisma to be a male supermodel. "Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model" will break fashion industry stereotypes as a group of young newcomers compete for the ultimate prize: a one-year contract with top international modeling agency, IMG.
In the tradition of the recently announced Bravo series "Project Greenlight," "Project Runway," and "Pilot Season," "Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model" is the newest show on the network to reveal the blood, sweat and tears behind the creative process. Though men's fashion is exploding onto the pop-culture and style scene - witness the metrosexual phenomenon - and female models have been given superstar status for years, little attention has been paid to their male counterparts who make their own heady contributions that drive the glamorous worldwide fashion machine... until now.
"Manhunt" will consist of eight, one-hour episodes and will follow 15 men as scouts pluck them from America's streets, bars, gyms and colleges to see if they have the look, the fire and the style to be a model. Once chosen, the finalists will travel around the United States to compete against each other in a series of challenges including: dealing with a creative but difficult photographer, learning to manage life on the road 24/7, crafting a fashion shoot, and mastering the runway "walk.
With the IMG connection, I have to wonder if Tyra's production company might have something to do with this?
