NZ TV Premiere

VIBE – Saturdays from 10 May, 6.30pm

The search is on for the new King of the Catwalk. Enough with girl-power already! Now it’s time for the boys to strut their stuff. The neglected world of male fashion models comes under the spotlight as 15 guys don their ‘tighty-whiteys’ for the first ever search for America’s most gorgeous MALE model. Watch as unsuspecting men are plucked from the streets and invited to participate in a series of challenges to determine who has the style, stamina and charisma to be a male supermodel. Once chosen, the finalists will travel around the United States to compete against each other in a series of challenges including: dealing with a creative but difficult photographer, learning to manage life on the road 24/7, crafting a fashion shoot, and mastering the runway walk. “Male Models” will break the stereotypes of the fashion industry as a group of young newcomers compete for the ultimate prize: a one-year contract with top international modeling agency, IMG. Hosted by the gorgeous Carmen Electra, with the help of judges, male modelling veteran, Bruce Hulse and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, Marisa Miller, Manhunt will reveal the blood, sweat and tears behind the grueling and cutthroat process of breaking into the modeling industry. Though men’s fashion is exploding onto the pop-culture and style scene – witness the metrosexual phenomenon – and female models have been given superstar status for years, little attention has been paid to their male counterparts who make their own heady contributions that drive the glamorous worldwide fashion machine… until now.
