[via press release from Bravo]


Viewers Can Vote Online Starting Today To Choose Two Series Finalists

NEW YORK � September 10, 2008 � Bravo's creative competition series "Make Me A Supermodel" returns for season two, and once again America gets to vote two models into the competition. Beginning today on www.BravoTV.com, fans get the chance to vote in one lucky male and female model out of six finalists to be chosen as part of the new cast of contestants for the series. "Make Me A Supermodel" follows a group of beautiful and talented men and women who will compete for $100,000 and the chance to become the next great supermodel. The series is scheduled to premiere on Bravo in the first quarter of 2009.

Voting begins today on www.BravoTV.com and closes on September 24. The six finalists up for public vote are:

Brent � 21, Born in Marshall County, Tenn.; Resides in Lewisburg, Tenn.

Brent, a pumpkin farmer, grew up in a tiny town in Tennessee and claims if you blink an eye, you'd miss it. His town has three major attractions � a Hibbits sports store, a Super Center and football. Brent is a football fanatic and was a star player in high school. After an injury during his senior year caused him to retire his dream, luck arrived when a photographer discovered him and sent him on modeling gigs in Atlanta and Miami. He now claims that modeling is his passion and hopes to make it big one day.

Ken � 24, Born in South Africa; Resides in Nashville, Tenn.

Ken was born in South Africa before moving all around the U.S. when his father joined the military. After college, he moved to New York City to pursue modeling before deciding to move to Nashville to try a music career. Ken is a singer, songwriter and plays the guitar. He is extremely confident and says he doesn't "do" relationships because he can't stand the drama.

Zohnell � 20, Born in Brooklyn, NY; Resides in New York, NY.

In his short 20 years, Zohnell has had a hard life. He was taken away from his mother when he was 18 days old and raised by his aunt, where he grew up in the "hood" of New York City. He fell into hard times, started stealing and hanging with gangs, only to finally realize his life was going nowhere and that he had to turn it around. He has a passion for modeling, the color silver, and is willing to do anything to make it in this competition.

Megan � 19, Born and Raised in Portland, Ore.

Megan is a college student with a passion for what she studies, claiming she might be a bit of a math and science "nerd." To Megan, modeling is an art and the ultimate form of self-expression. She is very outgoing, and even finds ways to strike up conversations with complete strangers. She admits she can be immature and clumsy on occasion, but when it comes to modeling she is determined and focused.

Jessica � 20, born in Miramar, Fla; Resides in Miami, Fla.

Jessica was raised primarily by her grandmother while her mother worked late nights as a bartender, the two still have a close-knit relationship. Jessica joined a modeling agency at age 15 but stopped because she refused to sacrifice her style when she went through a hard-core punk stage. Although she is still heavily into punk, she is willing to make changes in order to model again. She currently lives with her 18-year-old fianc� and she hopes that this show will reopen doors for her modeling career.

Karen � 21, Born in Mississippi; Resides in Los Angeles, Calif.

Karen's drive and determination to become a model and win this competition stems from a heartbreaking family tragedy � last year one of her twin brothers died in a tragic accident. She is focused on winning this competition in order to lift her family's spirits and give them something to be happy about again. She is a fierce competitor with a strong drive and a heart of gold.
