BRAVO TAKES VIEWERS' CHOICE TO A NEW LEVEL BY ALLOWING AMERICA TO PICK TWO CONTESTANTS ON 'MAKE ME A SUPERMODEL'

Viewers Can Vote Online Starting Today To Choose Which Of The Six Finalists Will Make The Show

Series to Premiere on Bravo In January 2008

NEW YORK � November 14, 2007 � In Bravo's new reality competition series "Make Me A Supermodel," men and women compete for a chance to launch their modeling career and now viewers get to choose two of the competitors for this series. Starting today on www.BravoTV.com, for the first time ever viewers can vote for a male and female out of six finalists who will be chosen as part of the new cast of contestants for the show. Based on the successful UK series, the beautiful and talented men and women selected for "Make Me A Supermodel" will compete for $100,000. The series, hosted by supermodels Niki Taylor and Tyson Beckford, is scheduled to premiere on Bravo in January 2008.

As previously announced, during the run of the series, Bravo viewers will vote each week to determine who stays to walk the "Supermodel" catwalk again and who goes home. Over a 12-week period, these hopefuls 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 catwalk.

Voting begins today on www.BravoTV.com and closes on Monday, November 26. The six finalists up for public vote are:

Ashlie � 20, Lexington, Ky.

Ashlie lives with her mother, her sister, her two dogs, four cats and mini-turtle in Kentucky. She hopes to break out of her hometown and move to a major city where she hopes to find additional opportunities to pursue her modeling career. Growing up, she sported large glasses and braces and was in her elementary school's academic team, going on to win best in state on an English exam. Ashlie is a self-described extrovert with a big personality who dreams of traveling the world and having a name that people know.

Angelica � 18, Arlington Heights, Ill.

Angelica has been modeling since a young age and currently works as a translator and receptionist at a law firm, as a part-time babysitter and studies accounting. She lives with her parents and two sisters in a Chicago suburb while the rest of her family remains in Poland. She enjoys playing tennis, basketball, swimming and practicing yoga. Angelica dreams of being a famous model, of opening a little boutique someday, and of buying a gorgeous home for her parents in Europe. Knowing that she is healthy makes her happy and thankful.

Katy � 21, Auburn, Ala.

Katy grew up in a meager home in Alabama where her grandparents helped raise her, but her humble upbringing allowed her to dream. She describes herself as extremely determined, often traveling four hours a day, four times a week for casting calls. She currently works in data entry at a cardiologist's office filing insurance claims and enjoys decorating, cleaning and horseback riding.

Ben � 22, Nashville, Tenn.

Ben has been working as a deputy sheriff correctional officer in Nashville for the past two years. He met his wife in high school, where they started out as friends in band camp, and have been together as a couple for six years. A very active person, he runs daily and enjoys playing volleyball and Frisbee with friends. After overcoming a very tough childhood and adolescent years, Ben considers himself lucky to have a great family and friends and to be healthy and alive. His best experience was his wedding day.

Igor � 21, Chicago, Ill.

Igor splits his time between working at a law office as a clerk and attending school. He is a huge fan of Heavy Metal, loves professional wrestling and in addition to work, school and modeling, keeps busy pursuing both of his favorites. He is currently forming a band and learning how to become a pro wrestler. He grew up in Bosnia and while on vacation with his grandparents in Serbia, the turmoil in the Balkan region kept him separated from his parents for over two years. His father, who was shot seven times in the Bosnian war as a civilian and tended to his own wounds to survive, is his hero. In his words, "Life kicks ass."

Josiah � 22, Nashville, Tenn.

Josiah was raised in a large family and has been married for over two years. He started singing while in a youth group, badly at that, but perfected his vocal skills eventually joining his high school choir. This led him to Belmont University where he played hockey, was a voice major and was accepted into two prestigious vocal ensembles. Josiah is also a member of a rock band, who is about to release an EP, and he dreams of dual careers being a successful model and musician.
