Bravo recently announced the two hosts for the new reality series Make
Me A Supermodel. The show will be hosted by supermodels Niki Taylor
and Tyson Beckford. Make Me A Supermodel is based on the successful UK
series. In the series, beautiful and talented men and women will
compete for a chance to launch their modeling career and win $100,000.
Over a 12-week period, contestants will live together in a New York City loft and explore friendships, romance and naked ambition while undergoing a series of creative challenges designed to test their professional modeling potential. This series will explore what it takes to turn the exceptionally good-looking into the king or queen of the catwalk. Bravo viewers will vote each week to determine who stays to walk the Supermodel catwalk again and who goes home.
Niki Taylor is one of the most successful international models of all time. She began her modeling career at the age of 14. She has represented a variety of powerful brands in fashion and beauty campaigns around the world and has graced the covers of nearly every major magazine. With over 400 magazine covers worldwide to her credit, she was famously featured in "Vogue" magazine as a teenager, making her the youngest model to ever appear on their cover. Currently working as a business entrepreneur and designer, Taylor has broadened her professional career while balancing her role as a mother. She recently opened Abbie & Jesse’s, her own clothing boutique, and formed "begin Enterprises" along with the "begin Foundation" for the Advancement of Women in Business.
Tyson Beckford is one of the most respected and well-known male supermodels in the world. His modeling career exploded when he appeared in the Fall 1994 Polo Sport campaign. He soon landed an exclusive multi-year contract with Ralph Lauren and served as the spokesmodel for Polo Sport and Polo Fragrances. Beckford has appeared on covers and in countless editorials for a variety of magazines worldwide. Beckford’s film credits include "Into The Blue," "Zoolander," "Biker Boyz" and the upcoming films "Hotel California" and "Kings of the Evening." He has starred in a number of music videos including 50 Cent’s chart topping "21 Questions," and the Grammy Award-winning songs "Toxic" by Britney Spears and "Unbreak My Heart" by Toni Braxton. When he is not modeling or acting, Beckford is busy developing his motor sports interests, which led him to host his own auto show.
"Make Me A Supermodel" is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions. The series is scheduled to premiere in the first quarter of 2008.
