"Natural Beauty" -- In week five, contestants are tested on patience and persistence, on "True Beauty," MONDAY, FEBRUARY 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

The contestants will spend two days partnered with each other to shoot a video clip for a natural beauty product. After a long, taxing hike with just a map and a bottle of water, the group find themselves roughing it overnight on the beach. They're awakened before dawn by Dave, the owner of an organic products company, who tasks them with recording a 30-second promo for a new line of natural products. With no make-up, no hairstylists and no mirrors, the promo must exemplify the contestants' ideas of natural beauty. They direct their own videos and write their own scripts, each operating the camera for their partner's video. The experience should give them a chance to show their creativity, their teamwork and their take on natural beauty.

Female contestants are Monique Santiago, a 21-year-old dancer from Manhattan, New York; Julia Anderson, a 23-year-old magician's assistant from Dallas, Texas; Laura Leigh, a 21-year-old model from Staten Island, New York; and Chelsea Bush, a 21-year old model/artist from Brentwood, Tennessee.

The men are CJ Miller, a 26-year-old barista from Los Angeles, California; Billy Jeffrey, a 31-year-old vitamin store owner from Lewiston, Idaho; Joel Rush, a 26-year-old imaging software salesman from Tampa, Florida; and Ray Seitz, a 29-year-old artist from San Diego, California.

At the end of the season, one winner will be declared, a person who is truly beautiful inside and out, and will receive a cash prize and a spot in PEOPLE's 100 Most Beautiful People issue.

"True Beauty" is hosted and judged by Vanessa Minnillo, along with judges Cheryl Tiegs and Nol� Marin. Executive producers are Denise Cramsey, 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. A TV parental guideline will be posted closer to airdate.
