Friday Hot Guys: The Men Of 'Make Me A Supermodel'

The surprisingly fun (and unfortunately titled) Bravo reality show Make Me A Supermodel -- which I had originally written off as a tired Top Model clone -- has quickly become appointment television at ModFab HQ. It's not for the actual modeling, however; most of the "challenges" border on the inane and ridiculous. Interestingly enough, it's the relationships among the male models that are so fascinating: openly gay Ronnie's intimate, um, friendship with the theoretically hetero Ben (who is, admittedly, adorable) is a will-they-or-won't-they soap opera, while the straight-boy posturing of Perry and Frankie ("We love women!") is hilarious overcompensation. Top it all off with a gorgeous lunkhead (Casey) and man-candy Tyson Beckford, and Supermodel proves to be more entertaining (and titillating) than soft core.

i found myself liking this show too (to my surprise!) but i actually think the modelling contest are very realistic ... at least in comparison to America's Next Top Model ;)

i lurv this show.

especially the fact of the boys, not because I find any of them especially attractive but because there's something just fascinating about the whole shebang...

(Though the bromance between Ben and Ronnie skeeves me out a little.)

Funny you mention this! I just saw part of an episode last night. I couldn't help but notice all the beautiful men. It's crazy. Good post, sir.

Bravo has the best reality shows. For this show, the formula is eye candy with interesting competition. That gets me every time.

I haven't watched this show at all, but it shows up on so many websites that I enjoy, I may have to end my reality tv boycott.

Also, ModFab, are we going to be doing a reader write-in contest for this weekly man candy series again?
