    ABC show information on The Scholar

    http://abc.go.com/primetime/scholar/show.html

    The opportunity of a lifetime is about to come true for one of America's best and brightest high school students in an original, new, one-hour unscripted series that will send the winner to a top-rated university, all expenses paid. Filmed on location at the University of Southern California, The Scholar will be the first show ever to celebrate higher education as the ultimate American prize.

    For the chance at a full ride to the college of their choice, ten qualified high school seniors -- who might not otherwise have an opportunity to attend one of America's top universities -- will compete for a full scholarship, a prize valued at $250,000. They will have to demonstrate excellence in the areas of academics, leadership, creativity and community service, while facing sudden-death oral exams defending themselves to an Ivy League scholarship committee.

    The Scholar contestants include:

    Max C., Oakland, CA
    Alyssa D., Yuba City, CA
    Amari H., St. Charles, MO
    Melissa H., Tarzana, CA
    Davis L., Memphis, TN
    Scot P., New Freedom, PA
    Jerald T., Commerce, TX
    Jeremy T., Westminster, CA
    Liz W., Buhl, ID
    Milana Z., Fresh Meadows, NY

    The $250,000 college scholarship will be donated by philanthropist Eli Broad.

    Hosted by Rob Nelson (The Rob Nelson Show, The Mole II), The Scholar was filmed in and around the Los Angeles-based campus of the University of Southern California.

    The Scholar, produced by Bunim-Murray Productions, Martin/Stein and Carsey-Werner, is a concept based on an original idea by Jaye Pace, Shannon Meairs and Waxman Williams Entertainment. Steve Martin, Joan Stein, Jon Murray, Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner serve as executive producers.

    Reality TV and higher education can actually mix?

    I don't know, the minute I saw the names Bunim-Murray all I could think of was the Real World and Road Rules producers are doing a 'serious' reality show??? mmmmmmmm

    Might be worth a shot at least for the premiere.

    I just hope it sends a better message for education than the Apprentice did for business. At least no huge ego (Trump, Stewart, Tyra, etc.) is involved!
    Looks to be good summer watching!

    Man- I wish they had this when I was in high school. Got into my top choice but couldn't possibly afford it.
    And I sing sometimes like my life is at stake because you're only as loud as the noises you make.

    Yep, that happened to me too. Ended up at a state school instead of going to where I really wanted to go.
