Watch your back, Tyra – there’s a new model reality show in town. Scouted, premiering tonight on E!, tracks the transformation of gawky girls-next-door into catwalk queens. The premise may sound all too familiar, but contestant turnover is much faster than on America’s Next Top Model: a different crop of girls is recruited, made over, and signed to an agency in each episode. “You are watching the first 72 hours of a girl’s modelling life,” explains NYC-based scout and show producer Michael Flutie. “You see the discovery process and get to learn about the family and who the girl is. It’s sort of like watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Okay, but will there be smizing? -Allison Friedman
