The "Make Me A Supermodel" casting special follows the series' open calls in five cities � Dallas, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles and New York, where models from around the country auditioned for the chance to be on the show. The top 35 applicants were then brought to New York to meet with the series' hosts and representatives from New York Model Management. The models then completed a series of challenges � testing their runway walk, posing in a bathing suit and posing for photos with a partner. Ultimately, Beckford, Taylor and New York Model Management eliminated 11 contestants, narrowing the field from 35 to the top 24 finalists. During the special, a second round of cuts was made and the models were pared down to the final 12 selected for a spot on the show. Meanwhile, three men and three women were placed online on www.BravoTV.com, where viewers were able to choose the final two models that will compete in the series. The casting special includes the models' audition videos and Bravo's cameras follow the final 14 to their hometowns when they receive the good news that they were selected for the show.

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, 14 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.
