It’s survival of the nicest when 10 ultimate prima donnas compete to see who is the most beautiful on the inside in PRETTY WICKED. CariDee English (AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL Cycle 7 winner) hosts the new reality series that puts looks aside as competitors battle it out in search of inner beauty and a prize of $50,000. Plus-sized model and author Mia Tyler (daughter of Aerosmith’s frontman Steve Tyler), Beverly Hills psychotherapist Dr. Jenn Berman, and comedian/author Kyle Cease (Not Another Teen Movie) are the series’ celebrity judges. PRETTY WICKED debuts Saturday, April 11 at 11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT exclusively on Star!.
Fans of the TOP MODEL franchise are sure to be drawn to PRETTY WICKED. Viewers witness backstabbing babes, mega manipulators, and fierce frenemies transform into more self-aware and ultimately good girls during the course of eight one-hour episodes. Looks are meaningless in this competition series, as the girls confront their mean spirited ways in a series of tests designed to beautify their inner personalities to match their outer pretty physiques.
The girls are in for a rude awakening when they find themselves in situations they would never have imagined, including relying on their intelligence to make a first impression on a bunch of blind men. The twists and turns in this social experiment continue as the girls find themselves without the everyday luxuries they are accustomed to, including mirrors, cell phones and most importantly privacy.
Host CariDee English and the judges are tasked with eliminating one of the ladies, based on the weekly challenges and transformations witnessed each week. Over their time together, emotions flare and tempers soar when these mean girls tap their inner beauty to win their way to the top. The ‘pretty’ girl who shows the greatest transformation by series’ end wins $50,000.
PRETTY WICKED is executive produced by R.J. Cutler of Actual Reality Pictures (30 DAYS and AMERICAN HIGH) and Jonas Larsen (CELEBRITY FIT CLUB).
