Rocha revealed on her blog today that she and Kurkova have signed on to be model coaches alongside Campbell on Oxygen’s new model reality competition show, The Face.
“As the youngest mentor of the three, I have looked up to Naomi and Karolina my entire career and am ecstatic to be able to work side by side with them on this amazing new project,” Rocha wrote.
“We, as coaches, will scout and choose our teams from aspiring young models nationwide before guiding them through assignments, which include photo shoots, runway shows and commercials for some of America’s best known brands,” the supermodel continued. Since in the end only one model hopeful will be chosen as the winner, Naomi, Karolina and Coco will be competing, in a sense, to coach and mentor the best team, thereby producing the winner. It sounds kind of like The Voice, but with modeling. Which will certainly make for some very interesting interactions between the supermodel mentors.
But Coco and Karolina are not the only big-names to be recently added to the show’s cast. According to Rocha, Nigel Barker has signed on to host the show, which is scheduled to air in 2013. Could this be the reason why Barker was fired from America’s Next Top Model? Or perhaps this is his way of getting back at Tyra after all that smizing she made him endure. Either way, we’re glad to hear this hottie will be back in front of the camera.
We seriously cannot wait for this show to air. Are you excited?
