TYSON BECKFORD TO HOST NEW REALITY SHOW, 'MAKE ME A SUPERMODEL' ON THE BRAVO NETWORK.

What a coincidence! I was just watching America's Next Top Model last night and I have to say I was a little surprised to see male supermodel/actor Tyson Beckford (who also served as guest judge on the elimination panel) attempt to teach the contestants on how to become a spokesperson. So, for those of you who are true and blue Beckford fans, get your TiVo's and DVRs ready because the tatted up (I ain't gon lie...all those tats makes him look as if he has a severe case of psoriasis without the ashy-white scales) hot boy's next gig is host of Bravo's new reality show, Make Me A Supermodel.

Along with fellow former supermodel Niki Taylor, Beckford will be the ringleader of the show, which is based on the successful UK series where beautiful and talented men and women are selected and will compete for a chance to launch their modeling career and win $100,000. According to a network spokesperson, Supermodel is scheduled to premiere in the first quarter of 2008. Viewers will vote each week to determine who stays to walk the Supermodel catwalk again and who goes home. Over a 12-week period, these hopefuls will live together in a New York City apartment and explore life while undergoing a series of creative challenges designed to test their professional modeling potential.

Beckford, who guest starred on Tyra Banks' wildly popular America's Next Top Model this week, is one of the most respected and well-known male supermodels in the world. Discovered and nurtured by fashion powerhouse Bethann Hardison, his modeling career exploded when he appeared in the Fall 1994 Polo Sport campaign. He soon landed an exclusive multi-year contract with Ralph Lauren and served as the spokesmodel, shilling everything from underwear, clothing and fragrances. In June 2005, Beckford was injured in a car accident near his West New York, New Jersey home. His vehicle caught fire, but he was able to pull himself out before it became fully engulfed in flames.

On the comeback trail, he recently appeared in music videos including 50 Cent's chart topping 21 Questions, and the Grammy Award-winning song Toxic by Britney Spears. He recently hosted the car show, Fine Tuned and will appear in the upcoming films Hotel California and Kings of the Evening.
