Olivia Palermo's not the only City alum to get her own reality series. Whitney Port's got her own series too, only it won't follow her clothing line, Whitney Eve.

No, for her latest TV endeavor Port will host "Genuine Ken: The Search for The Great American Boyfriend," a web-only reality competition in which eight "Ken-testants" will compete in various challenges that will test them on their "Great American Boyfriend" capabilities. From the trailer, it looks like challenges include cooking, home decorating, surfing, styling, and picking out flowers. All the qualities you might look for in THE GREAT AMERICAN BOYFRIEND. What a heady responsibility! The best part? When a "Ken-testant" is selected to move on to the next round Whitney puts a Ken doll plastic bracelet on the dude's wrist. That's got to feel better than getting a lame rose, right? News broke that Port would be hosting the digital series for Barbie back in November and now there's a premiere date: January 18. What this means for Port's line, Whitney Eve, remains to be seen. This latest project has little to do with fashion and nothing to do with her line. Port also recently told the NYLA Report that she's not scheduled to show at NYFW in February but is "looking into" trade shows like Coterie and Projects in Las Vegas.
