The Face - Season 1

Steve Fenn/ Oxygen Media

So what girl or guy hasn’t dreamed of being a model. Picture it. You’re walking down the street, looking fabulous, but understated, when you’re approached by an excited scout who just knows you have “the face.” Shows like the “THE FACE”Advertisement fulfill our fantasies through the modern wonder of reality television. It is OXYGEN’S NEW SUPERMODEL COMPETITION SERIES which PREMIERES TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12th at 9 PM ET/PT! Thousands of aspiring models auditioned for a chance at one of the 12 spots, vying to become The Face of one of our favorite cosmetics brands ULTA Beauty.

And we’ve got 5 reason for you to watch. Check out what they are below!



1. The Supermodel Coaches

The only thing hotter than a fresh-faced model is an already reigning queen of the catwalk. And it takes one to know one, which is why Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova & Coco Rocha will be molding the aspiring models of this competition. But let’s be honest, we’d watch a blank TV if even one of these ladies was on it, let alone three. But as an added bonus, our supermodel coaches will battle it out over Top Selects in “The Face’s” fight to make the Final 12.” (You’ll be able to see who makes it in the Kick-Off Special Airing Tuesday, February 5 at 9 PM ET/PT!)


2. The Fashion & Beauty

The fashion, and hair and makeup is guaranteed to be on point, and you’ll need to be around to witness every on-trend ensemble; every beat face; and all laid edges and teased tresses for tips and inspiration to take you through 2013.


3. Two Words: Nigel…Barker

We know former model and photog Nigel Barker has a ton of experience as a model judge, but this time around he’s hosting which means more of the handsome expert and his delicious English accent on camera! Swoon.


4. Guest Appearances By…

What would a model competition be without a say-so from some of the ‘best in the biz’ from fashion and Hollywood?! Expect pop up appearances from legendary fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier; the always openly honest talk show host Wendy Williams; and Knicks basketball star and one of fashion’s latest “It” guys, Amar’e Stoudemire, to name a few.

5. Just In Case…

In the event that there is a model scout lay waiting your arrival in your local food court or parking lot, you’ll need to pick up a few pointers to kick-start your fab career right, as the next hottest face in the industry!

    It is refreshing to see a modeling
    competition that does not involve Tyra Banks, and Nigel Baker is an added
    bonus. I work at DISH, and the premiere of The Face gave me and my co-workers plenty
    to talk about. The Face airs on a night when I work late, but with my DISH
    Hopper and up to 2,000 hours of storage space, I’m able to record the full
    season, along with the full seasons of my other favorite shows that air the
    same night. I get to watch them at a time when it’s convenient for me, this way
    I never have to worry about deleting my favorite shows because there’s always
    enough room available.
