[via press release from ABC]

ABC ANNOUNCES THE PREMIERE OF "TRUE BEAUTY," MONDAY, MAY 31

Gorgeous Contestants Think They're Competing to Become the "Face of Vegas" While Secretly Being Judged on Their Inner Beauty

Carson Kressley and Vanessa Minnillo Host/Judge and Beth Ostrosky Stern Will Judge

"True Beauty" will premiere on MONDAY, MAY 31 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC, following the regular time period premiere of "The Bachelorette" (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET; note: "The Bachelorette" season premiere is the previous week, MONDAY, MAY 24, from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET, following the "Dancing with the Stars" performance show finale.)

The women contestants are Amy Schmoldt, a 22-year-old bartender from New Brunswick, New Jersey; Erika Othen, a 25-year-old singer/cocktail waitress from Long Island, New York; Liz Parada, a 31-year-old model from Hollywood, Florida; Michelle Mozek, a 21-year-old dancer from Dallas, Texas; and Regina Villano, a 22-year-old teen pageant queen from Tabernacle, New Jersey. The men are Craig Francyzk, a 29-year-old retail manager from Winnipeg, Canada; David Palmer, a 24-year-old DJ/astrologer from Huntington Beach, California; JD Scott a 26-year-old real estate agent from Los Angeles, California; Michael Allen, a 25-year-old actor/model from Miami, Florida; and Taylor Bills, a 24-year-old former professional athlete from Irvine, California.

Executive producers Tyra Banks ("The Tyra Banks Show," "America's Next Top Model") and Ashton Kutcher (executive producer of "Punk'd" and "Beauty and the Geek") team up again to put their spin on beauty in Sin City. Five gorgeous females and five hot men will live together at Planet Hollywood Hotel while they compete (they think) to become the "Face of Vegas." Unbeknownst to them, they'll be deliberately challenged by moral situations to see if they really are kind, generous and compassionate and have what it takes to be truly beautiful inside and out.

The attractive contestants assume they're being judged solely on their physical attributes when, in fact, the episodes will showcase two sides of each person, one that displays outer beauty as well as one that exhibits inner beauty. One person will be eliminated each week based on their behavior and how well they ranked in each challenge, as they're evaluated and critiqued by the judges. At the end of eight episodes, one winner will be declared who has successfully demonstrated both inner and outer beauty. That winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize and a feature article in People magazine.

Vanessa Minnillo ("former host of ET") returns as a host and judge, but will only reveal herself to the contestants once they're eliminated. Carson Kressley ("Queer Eye for the Straight Guy") will host as well as judge, and will put his spin on things in a way only he can. Beth Ostrosky Stern, the wife of the self-described "King of All Media" Howard Stern, will be making her broadcast television debut and share her opinion on beauty, being a former model herself.

Executive producers of "True Beauty" are Denise Cramsey (ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), 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.
