VH1 will air Australia’s Top Model starting in March

Following The CW’s decision to air compressed versions of the UK’s Top Model, VH1 has announced that it will air the entire first season of Australia’s Next Top Model.

Starting March 5, VH1 will air the eight episodes on Mondays at 10. The series originally aired two years ago in Australia.

The model who hosts the show is Erika Heynatz, while it’s judged by “leading fashion designer and former model booker Alex Perry, celebrity fashion stylist Ken Thompson and former U.S. Harper’s Bazaar Managing Editor Marguerite Kramer,” according to VH1.

And the network says we can expect “tears and tantrums, accusations of fake breasts and theft,” plus “cheating claims, the ‘you’re too skinny’ taunts and all the high drama you’d expect when you put 10 competitive and hugely ambitious girls under one roof!”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
