Wednesday, September 16, 2009: The Beautiful Life

"This is a fake story ('Fake storaaayyy!') about a dozen-odd models picked to live in a house, who find out what happens when they stop being polite (if they ever were) and start getting fake. The Fake World!" That's as good a summary of this show as any, although America's Next Top Drama Queen and 90210 Tryout House are acceptable alternate titles, too. Having never seen Models Inc., which starred Carrie-Anne Moss and lasted all of 29 episodes before selling Moss' character into sexual slavery, I think this show is going to be pretty damn popular. After all, models are so hot right now. (Well, they're always hot, but... you know what I mean.)

Seriously, giving it the slot after America's Next Top Model is a brilliant move, because if you're watching a show about real models forced into overblown dramatic confrontations, you'd probably want to watch a show about fake models getting into scripted catfights, especially when one of the actresses is as big a train wreck as any ANTM contestant. Mischa Barton plays a model who may have blown her window by leaving the country mysteriously for several months, and Sara Paxton plays an up-and-comer who may just take her rightful place at the top. Ex-model Elle Macpherson plays the head of a modeling agency, but don't watch the show for her. Instead watch it for the scenes that take place backstage at every runway show, and feature the young cast disrobing repeatedly.

The Beautiful Life: TBL airs tonight at 9/8C on the CW, after a double-elimination ANTM. For more options, check out our Week in Preview!
