    I just laughed when I saw the preview. I thought Tyra's not going to stand it. But she will be o.k.

    Naomi for all her drama is still so so glamorous. Going to set my DVR.
    You can do it!

    Devyn is AMAZING looking. I am sooo jealous of these girls' heights! And I am a person who does not "do" jealousy!

    This may be interesting, MAY. Better than AMNTM, hopefully. Naomi is one nasty piece of work. When Coco and Karolina were chosen over Naomi, she gave a 'I will throw a phone at you' look in her eye.

    Unfortunately we have some nasty models too. Why didn't they seek to avoid that? That is Tyra territory; let her do the finger wagging, head snapping chicks who anger easily.

    I really wanted this to be a serious competition on a par with Top Chef or Project Runway. Alas, I don't think they are coming close.

    I'm still holding out hope that it will be that serious competition Shoepie. I am hoping the drama will be minimal and the modeling will be maximal and Nigel will be often present. A girl can dream!

    Nice write-up about the show on People.com:
    Five Reasons to Watch ‘The Face’

    They’ve heard the Top Model comparisons. They know they’re facing stiff competition from the 1.2 million other reality shows on TV. But the ladies of The Face — Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurková and Coco Rocha — are ready for the ratings battle. Hey — they have survived in the fashion world, after all.

    “When you want the best, you’ll do anything to have the best,” Campbell tells PEOPLE of the guest designers and photographers appearing on the show. “I’m very proud of … the level of our show.”

    Are you on the fence about watching the series? Here are five reasons why we think you should check out the premiere:

    1. It follows the addictive format of The Voice. Instead of judging aspiring models and sending them home (though there will still be eliminations), Campbell, Kurková and Rocha are mentoring the women. “I always felt, being in this industry for so long, that it was my responsibility to share,” Kurková tells PEOPLE. “Being a successful model isn’t just about being pretty and tall — you have to be a businesswoman, know your craft, have a sense of style … we’re teaching the ropes of the industry.”

    And just like on The Voice, The Face contestants will often get to choose their mentor, which makes for dramatic twists. “If there are two mentors who want to have the same girl, it’s up to that girl,” Rocha explains to PEOPLE. “And that’s where the fun begins.”

    2. There are high stakes — and high-fashion guests. The winner of the series lands a brand ambassadorship with ULTA Beauty, a prize Campbell is quite proud of. “The winner will be seen, she will be known around America,” the supermodel explains. “We’ll understand why this girl is the winner. She looks like a model [and] has a great sense of distinction — that extra little something we talk to our girls about having to have.”

    World-renowned photographer Patrick Demarchelier is on board to help in one challenge, as is fashion designer darling Zac Posen — and there are more names to come. “I wanted the show to be authentic [and feature] people in our business,” Campbell explains. “I wanted the girls to experience professionals like Zac and Patrick.”

    3. Obviously, drama will ensue. “It’s a competition,” Campbell says. “I want my team to win, obviously — I think I have the best girls!”

    And outside the competition, we’ll get a peek into the contestants’ private lives — and possibly some made-for-TV breakdowns. “I felt like I was their mom sometimes,” Kurková says of her mentees. “I took on different roles — friend, mentor, coach, whatever they needed me to be. All three of us were hands-on, making sure they had healthy food to eat, getting them everything they needed so they could perform and feel good, and make this a great experience for them.”

    4. Naomi Campbell, duh. Obviously, it’s a pretty big deal to see one of the world’s most major supermodels on reality TV — and everyone involved with The Face knows it. “She brings real fashion to this,” Rocha says. “And when her name was brought up, I thought, wow, to work alongside her as a mentor, it will be insane! I look up to her, and want to know what she has to teach me.”

    For her part, Campbell was happy to make the move to TV. “Reality has changed our business, and given [young models] a great springboard,” she shares. “I have a lot of respect for Tyra [Banks] and what she’s done for America’s Next Top Model and young women out there who want to be in fashion.”

    5. It’s already blowing up your Twitter feed. Rocha, who’s quite active on Twitter, says that despite the fact the show hasn’t started yet, it already has a big social media presence. “It’s fun to watch what people are saying. There are people who’ve said they’re Team Coco, or Team Naomi, or love Team Coco but are watching for Team Karolina, too,” she shares. “There’s never been such support like this for a reality show. It makes me very excited, and so proud of my team.”

    Catch the series premiere of The Face on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on Oxygen, Bravo and Style, then regularly at 9 p.m. ET Tuesdays on Oxygen.

    I am excited about this show because ANTM has been so gimmicky and awful lately.

    I will have to catch the first episode OnDemand, but I did see the better part of tonight's show. I want to like it because I **adore** NigelBarker!

    But then there's Naomi. Unfortunately, wherever Naomi goes, ugly follows.
    Of course I'll give it more than one try, but she wears very heavy on the kind of drama I don't have time for.
    Impossible things are being done every day.

    Hmmmm....interesting episode. I think i'll watch again. Reminds me a bit of ANTM in some ways, though. Namely the personalities of some of the girls. Oh yeah, and Naomi is already angry. lol.

    Re: The Face (Oxygen)

    This is a competition between the judges! The models are just accessories in this battle. Naomi is intolerable. So she is going to vote out the model from Karolina's team the next chance she gets, no matter what. Karolina may have chosen the red head to get at Naomi, too!

    The judging really has to be impartial. What were they thinking?

    Naomi is setting herself up for this dynamic and it appears it will get worse. Coco for the win next week and another memeber of team Naomi bites the dust! I so wish.

    And if Karolina and Coco are on their toes they will leave the wild child on Naomi's team if she ends up in the bottom two! That girl is going to ruin her team.
