MALE SUPERMODEL BRUCE HULSE AND THREE-TIME SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT MODEL MARISA MILLER TAPPED AS SERIES JUDGES

NEW 8-PART COMPETITION SERIES SPOTLIGHTING THE UNEXPLORED WORLD OF MALE MODELING TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12TH AT 10:00 PM ET/9 CENTRAL

NEW YORK -� September 8, 2004 �- Actress, singer, model and all-around pop culture personality Carmen Electra will host Bravo's upcoming original series "Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model" it was announced today by Lauren Zalaznick, President of Bravo. Also signing on as judges of the first televised nationwide search for the next king of the catwalk are Bruce Hulse, widely regarded as the industry's first male supermodel, and Marisa Miller, one of today's most sought after modeling muses. "Manhunt," will premiere Wednesday, October 13 at 10:00pm ET Bravo.

"Carmen Electra has just the right mix of energy, magnetism and fun to be the ideal host and guide for the young, novice competitors on 'Manhunt,' said Lauren Zalaznick. "Bruce and Marissa bring their own diverse experience and expertise to their roles as the show's judges and their natural chemistry is a fortunate bonus for the show."

Carmen Electra's impressive body of work includes television, film, comedy and theatre. Currently, Carmen can be seen in MTV's reality series "Till Death do us Part," and is in production on the indie film "Getting Played" for writer-director David Silberg. She has most recently starred opposite Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller in an adaptation of the 1970's police action film "Starsky and Hutch." Other film and television credits include "My Bosses' Daughter," "Uptown Girls," "Perfume," "Scary Movie," "Singled Out," and "Baywatch." Carmen also continues to make special appearances with the popular "Pussycat Dolls Live," a contemporary, burlesque cabaret act reminiscent of Berlin in the 1930's with its lavish costumes and wild styling, that was founded as an opening act for Johnny Depp's Los Angeles club, The Viper Room. Carmen got her first break when a scout for Prince spotted her dancing for a rap group in Los Angeles.

Marisa Miller was discovered while surfing in California by renowned photographer Mario Testino inspiring him to shoot her for Vogue Magazine. Since then she has been featured on countless covers for Shape, Self and Fitness magazines and appears regularly in top fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Marie Claire and GQ. She has also appeared in three consecutive issues of Sports Illustrated's star-making swimsuit edition and is the star of Tommy Hilfiger's Intimates campaign.

Bruce Hulse has been a top male supermodel for more than two decades and is perhaps best know for being "the Calvin Klein man." He has appeared in nearly every major designer's ad campaigns as well as numerous fashion magazines and TV spots. Since being discovered while lifeguarding by photographer Bruce Weber, Hulse has done turns on the catwalks of Milan, Miami, Paris, New York, London, and Tokyo and continues to model to this day.

"Manhunt" will turn the world of modeling on its high-heels by focusing the camera on the ever-neglected world of male fashion models. The series is Bravo's latest in its tradition of giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at creativity, craft and contemporary culture. It will break fashion industry stereotypes as a group of young newcomers compete for the ultimate prize: a one-year contract with top international modeling agency, IMG.

"Manhunt" will consist of eight, one-hour episodes and will follow 15 men as scouts pluck them from America's streets, bars, gyms and colleges to see if they have the look, the fire and the style to be a model. Once chosen, the finalists will compete against each other in a series of challenges until only one remains � the newly crowned most gorgeous male model.

"Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model" is a TWI production, the television arm of IMG. The series is produced by Stuart Krasnow ("Average Joe") for Bravo.
