New York, NY, April 16, 2009 Ð TV Land's hit reality series "She's Got The Look" returns this June for a second season as ten new finalists Ð all over the age of 35 -- compete to become the next great supermodel. The series, which is hosted by supermodel Kim Alexis, is a collaboration with Wilhelmina Models, Inc., and sets out to discover a sophisticated, beautiful and confident woman 35 or older destined to become the next "it" girl of the fashion industry. In addition to a contract with Wilhelmina Models, Inc., and a photo spread in SELF Magazine, this season's winner will now also receive a check for $100,000. Supermodel Beverly Johnson, who made history as the first African-American model to appear on the cover of American Vogue, celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and Wilhelmina president Sean Patterson are all featured as judges on the series. Emmy Award-Winner Allison Grodner ("Big Brother," "Blowout") will return as executive producer. "She's Got The Look" will premiere in TV Land Prime, the network's new primetime programming block designed to appeal to the attitudes, life stage and interests of people in their 40s. RoC¨ is the presenting sponsor of "She's Got The Look."
The second season of "She's Got The Look," which expands from six episodes to eight, chronicles a nationwide model search resulting in bringing 20 contenders to New York City. These semi-finalists will be put to the test and face an immediate challenge, from which ten finalists will be selected to live in a New York City loft. The ten finalists will compete in photo shoots, a video shoot and high fashion runway shows.
From a feisty rocker to an elegant grandmother of eight to a former military officer to a strong-willed beauty who was homeless just nine years ago, this season's finalists are all accomplished and diverse women with unique life stories competing with six other stunners for the grand prize.
"TV Land is thrilled to showcase these ten gorgeous women ranging from the age of 35 to 72 who defy the stereotype that beauty fades after 20," states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "This season is filled with more glamour, drama and competition -- with the most jaw-dropping elimination in the series' history taking place. I know our audience will be interested in seeing these women pursue a second chance at their lifelong dream."
"She's Got The Look' proves to the world that an aspiring model over the age of 35 still has what it takes to make it in this industry," states Sean Patterson, president of Wilhelmina Models. "There is a huge market for women over 35 and we can't wait to add the winner of this year's competition to our roster of beautiful men and women."
