Tonight I will be watching The Face. Yes it is a guilty pleasure as is a number of modeling shows I follow, or use to follow. When it first aired I was a HUGE fan of America’s Next Top Model. I loved watching the transformation, and I could relate to the competitive factor as I was enrolled in design school at the time. But my all time favorite was Scouted which alas only lasted one season. But I just loved this show. It was a bit more real then the other two and was actually described by the network as a docudrama. I really enjoyed watching the process and how a scouter spots a diamond in the rough and helps her to become a working model. Of course not all the girls that were scouted went on to sign with the agency—a reflection of what happens in the real world. The show was about a legit agency so everything was above board, but we all know that there can a lot of dicey pitfalls for aspiring models and even for the people scouting. For an eye opening chat on this topic, check out this discussion on After Buzz TV. And check out the blog Love Lydia Hearst, it is the blog for the model Lydia Hearst who is one of the current mentors on The Face. Many models like Lydia go  on to have wonderful careers and use it as a stepping stone to transition in to other careers. But as noted, it is not easy. If you had a 13-14 year old daughter and she expressed the desire to have a career in modeling, would you encourage her? I am not sure if I would or not. I guess if I was involved, and I knew what she was doing every step of the way until she was an adult I would consider it. Would you?

    I’ve never heard of this show but it sounds interesting. I don’t think people realize that being a model can be hard work and the industry is full of pitfalls.

    I NEED to watch The Face! I saw a clip of it when they were promoting it. I was a fan of America’s Next Top Model too when it first started. I watched it every week. HaHa

    I’ve never seen Scouted, but it seems different than ANTM the way you described it! I know girls a little older than me that just started modeling careers even though they have kids. Some people might discourage that but if they want to do it and can balance both, I think it’s ok!

    Modeling is such a difficult line of work! I definitely have a lot of respect for models. I could never do what they do!
