If simply being a contestant on America's Next Top Model ensures a steady career, then winning the show would definitely take you places. Such is the case of Cycle 7's CariDee English, who landed a spot as the host of a new reality series for Oxygen: Pretty Wicked
The new show, produced by R.J. Cutler (30 Days
, American High
), will pit ten divas against one another to see who exactly is the fairest of them all – on the inside, that is. These women have got their looks going for them, but their attitudes aren't so fitting. Sounds a bit like Charm School, doesn't it?
The Oxygen network has ordered eight one-hour episodes of Pretty Wicked, which challenges its competitors to find their inner beauty more important than outside. It's actually like an extension of the lessons learned America's Next Top Model, so it's apt that CariDee English be the host. Joining her are comedian Kyle Cease, plus-sized model Mia Tyler and licensed psychotherapist Jenn Berman, who will be the judges for Pretty Wicked
The series will feature unique challenges, in which the contestants will be having “make unders” instead of makeovers and sent to face a bunch of attractive guys. Pressured with that, the girls must do their best to show grace and poise, with the winner going home with $50,000.
is executive-produced by Cutler and Jonas Larsen, who is also responsible for Tabatha's Salon Takeover and Celebrity Fit Club. It's scheduled to premiere on March 31 at 10pm, on Oxygen.
