For "True Beauty" Season 2 on ABC, executive producers Tyra Banks ("The Tyra Banks Show," "America's Next Top Model") and Ashton Kutcher (executive producer of "Punk'd" and "Beauty and the Geek") team up again to put their spin on beauty in Sin City. Five gorgeous females and five hot men will live together at Planet Hollywood Hotel while they compete (they think) to become the "Face of Vegas." Unbeknownst to them, they'll be deliberately challenged by moral situations to see if they really are kind, generous and compassionate and have what it takes to be truly beautiful inside and out.

The attractive contestants assume they're being judged solely on their physical attributes when, in fact, the episodes will showcase two sides of each person, one that displays outer beauty as well as one that exhibits inner beauty. One person will be eliminated each week based on their behavior and how well they ranked in each challenge, as they're evaluated and critiqued by the judges. At the end of eight episodes, one winner will be declared who has successfully demonstrated both inner and outer beauty. That winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize and a feature article in People magazine.

Vanessa Minnillo ("former host of ET") returns as a host and judge, but will only reveal herself to the contestants once they're eliminated. Carson Kressley ("Queer Eye for the Straight Guy") will host as well as judge, and will put his spin on things in a way only he can. Beth Ostrosky Stern, the wife of the self-described "King of All Media" Howard Stern, will be making her broadcast television debut and share her opinion on beauty, being a former model herself.

Executive producers of "True Beauty" are Denise Cramsey (ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), Tyra Banks and Laura Armstrong for Bankable Productions, and Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg, Karey Burke and Rod Aissa for Katalyst Productions. The series is a production of Warner Horizon Television.

linda says:
This has to one of the stupidest shows ever created. To equate committing a crime with hot helping someone with a leash is crazy. The show needs to be revamped and any person who steals something should be immediately eliminated from the contest.
mellie says:
OMy - so you can steal and still be more beautiful than someone who doesn't??? I agree the guy who passed the dog woman is a complete jerk but still.... there were 3 or 4 that just shoplifted and they are all still in the running.... seriously?
dianna says:
True Beauty seems like a good concept for a show. But it really points out people's flaws at the expense of ratings. The hosts point out to the "losers" that they are not a good person and show them video clips of things they've done or said that wasn't nice. So what I want to know is, which one of these holier-than-thou hosts is perfect?? We are ALL flawed.

Got spoilers? What did you think of the last show?
