Are You Hot? debuts tonight.
Are You Hot?, ABC’s Idol-like “search for America’s sexiest people” debuts tonight. Proving once again their programming genius, the wizards at ABC scheduled the two-hour premiere opposite the 90-minute debut of Survivor Amazon. Even better, it’ll rerun on ABC Family Monday night at 9 p.m.–opposite the conclusion of Joe Millionaire. The show features a celebrity panel who will judge the hot-or-not bodies: Rachel Hunter, Randolph Duke, and Lorenzo Lamas. Viewers will vote online to narrow the pool of semi-finalists down to just one man and one woman over the course of the six-episode series. The New York Times says the show “is certainly not sexist; women and men alike are judged by the size of their breasts.”
