Last month we told you about E!’s new TV show, Scouted, a version similar to that of America's Next Top Model.
Now the show’s “Model Mentor”, supermodel Beri Smither is chatting about the new show.
Tim Gunn Smither reveals:
“I've been in this business a long time and saw this opportunity as a way to showcase my experience and love for these aspiring young models. I want to get the true message of modeling out there and illustrate to the general public that this is a serious business and being Scouted is an incredible gift.”
And when asked how Scouted differs from other fashion shows, like ANTM, Smither adds:
Scouted is the real "model scouting" process from the nuts to the bolts. This show documents a girl being discovered by a Scout in the girl's natural environment and/or day-to-day life, such as at a school activity, a concert, a day trip to Sea World, her work day (wherever that may be, i.e. Dunkin’ Donuts), or frankly even crossing the parking lot! I have also witnessed cases where the Scout sneaks into a model contest/convention as a model herself in order to scout the girls there. Scouts need to be creative like in any business!
And what makes a good model?
Personality, physical requirements, passion, intelligence, creativity, vulnerability, strength, stamina, desire.
If you’re interested in catching an episode, Scouted premieres on November 28th.
