VH1 Scours The Runway To Find Mandalay Bay's "Model Employee"

Premieres Wednesday, May 8th At 10:30PM ET/PT On VH1

Eight Models Have Luxuries Stripped Away As They Compete To Become The Face of Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino

Hosted by Supermodel Chrissy Teigen

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 8, 2013 -- VH1's newest reality-competition series "Model Employee" offers eight models the opportunity to become the face of Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, but not without an arduous journey first. Supermodel host Chrissy Teigen reveals that it won't be all champagne and caviar for these eight ladies. In order to become this prestigious brand's new "it" girl, the models will have to get to know the hotel from the ground up as they perform numerous jobs that Mandalay Bay employees perform on a daily basis. Watch as these contestants understand the true meaning of "getting your hands dirty" on "Model Employee," premiering Wednesday, May 8th at 10:30PM ET/PT on VH1.

The models arrive by private jet to Sin City expecting to participate in a photo shoot to land a career-changing job, but instead arrive to Mandalay Bay to find a banquet hall full of un-cleared dining tables. Their first task: bussing the tables and cleaning the massive banquet hall in less than 20 minutes. It quickly becomes obvious that this will not be the typical interviewing process for a model. Mandalay Bay is in search of its new spokesmodel and they want a woman who truly knows their brand inside and out. To find the perfect person they are putting their candidates under a microscope as these models perform jobs that include flying on a pulley system as a wine angel, cleaning the shark tank and even manually picking through the garbage for recyclable items.

"Model Employee" is hosted by supermodel Chrissy Teigen , who is joined by judges: Jimmy Smith , The Chairman, CEO and Chief Creative Officer at Amusement Park Entertainment; Vanessa Branch , The First Orbit Gum Girl, who "fabulously" cleaned up dirty mouths for 8 years; and Patrick Miller , Vice President of Marketing at Mandalay Bay.

"Model Employee" is executive produced by Stephen Lambert , Eli Holzman and Kevin Bartel for All3Media America, Michael Flutie for Madwood and Troy Searer . Executive producing for VH1 are Tom Huffman , Jill Holmes and Jeff Olde .
