MTV is looking for KC model contestants

Another reality TV show is trolling for contestants in Kansas City.

This time, it’s MTV.

Producers for MTV’s new reality show, “Model Makers,” will interview would-be contestants from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza, 401 Ward Parkway.

Fifteen women eventually chosen for the show will work with a team of trainers, nutritionists, stylists and leaders from the fashion industry.

They’ll compete in a sort of “model boot camp:” Twelve weeks of fitness training and high-fashion challenges with weekly eliminations.

The winner will receive $100,000, a modeling portfolio, a personal trainer for a year and the chance to begin a modeling career. The show is expected to debut later this year.

The show’s producers say they are looking for beautiful, charismatic women willing to do the work it takes to become a model.

You’re eligible if you are: Between the ages of 17 and 24; 5-feet-9 to 6-feet tall and 130 to 190 pounds. Bring recent photos of yourself: head shots and body shots in a bathing suit.
