Does TV really need another reality show about modeling? Wasn't 1,000 cycles of "America's Next Top Model" enough?
Nope, says E! Our lives will not be complete without "Scouted," a reality show connected with New York modeling agency One Management, founded by Scott Lipps.
One Management has famously shaped the careers of stunners such as Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova and Angela Lindvall. But the New York Post reports that a newer face will be showing up to the office on "Scouted": Bar Refaeli.
According to the Post, the Israeli model (pictured above with Isabeli Fontana) was spotted leaving the office of industry expert Michael Flutie, the creator and producer of the show. In between filming lingerie commercials and posing with actors, Bar has found time to already shoot an episode. Says a source, "Bar will appear in one episode, advising and helping aspiring models."
Those aspiring models, writes Vulture, will come from small towns, "where new talent is discovered, to burger joints and department stores where the next supermodel might just be working behind a counter," said E! programming chief Lisa Berger. Scouts will head to Richmond, Houston, San Francisco and Salt Lake City to find would-be Bar Refaelis, bringing them back to NYC to receive guidance from the one who already made it.
OK, so at least the concept is new and the model is au courant. But will you watch?
"Scouted" will air the first of eight episodes on November 28 at 10 pm on E!
