The very first season of True Beauty is coming to an end. On the True Beauty season finale, Julia Anderson, Joel Rush, and Billy Jeffrey will compete in a People Magazine photo shoot. The ultimate winner will not only get a cash prize, but he or she will also appear in People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People issue.
As always, the contestants will face a challenge that tests both their outer beauty and inner beauty. While the People Magazine photo shoot might measure outer beauty, the contestants will also participate in an interview that will judge their inner beauty by measuring their ability to speak honestly about themselves.
People Magazine Executive Editor Jess Cagle will conduct interviews with the three finalists, while the judges watch to see if the contestants are both honest and humble. The contestants will have to answer some truly difficult and revealing questions. The People Magazine photo shoot will be conducted by celebrity photographer Matthew Rolston, who is famous for photographing celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Tyra Banks.
After the challenge, the three finalist return to the house, and they receive a champagne surf-n-turf dinner. They also get the surprise of their lives, when a note directs them to a “secret door” in the house. The finalists soon realize that the judges have been watching their every move in the house, when they see video of their own behavior. However, the biggest shock occurs when a video from Vanessa Minnillo reveals that the contestants were being judged on outer and inner beauty.
At the final Hall of Beauty, the finalists attempt to defend themselves to the judges. Each finalist attempts to make their case for winning the competition. The season finale of True Beauty airs on Monday, February 23 from 10:00 PM to 11:00 PM ET on ABC.
