Niki Taylor, Tyson Beckford will host Bravo’s Make Me a Supermodel

Bravo has announced the hosts for its upcoming series Make me a Supermodel, the first Bravo series to air in real time and allow viewers to vote people off the show. Supermodels Niki Taylor and Tyson Beckford will host the show, which will award $100,000 to its winner.

The show’s format is being imported from the UK, where Rachel Hunter hosted. On the US version, the models “will live together in a New York City loft and explore friendships, romance and naked ambition while undergoing a series of creative challenges designed to test their professional modeling potential. This series will explore what it takes to turn the exceptionally good-looking into the king or queen of the catwal,” according to Bravo.

The series will debut “in the first quarter of 2008,” Bravo says.
