“True Beauty” 2010 “Face of Vegas” Judges Interview – Who’s Hidden this Season?

Beth Ostrosky Stern tells TV Squad, “They had to bring new people in because of the nature of the show. Vanessa Minnillo – she’s back for season 2, but she couldn’t be seen or the contestants would know what the nature of the show was -“
“They had to keep her hidden,” Carson Kressley added.

“True Beauty” 2010 “Face of Vegas” Judges Interview – Shooting “True Beauty” in Vegas
In his comedic demeanor, Kressley recants, “So, then we roll into town. We’re shooting the season in Vegas, which adds a lot of excitement, it’s kind of an extra character to the show.”
“Very colorful.” Beth Ostrosky says of the Vegas on-location shoot.
Since the 10 contestants really aren’t competing to be the next “Face of Vegas,” how did that play in the judges’ minds fibbing in that respect?
“We kind of – I feel a little tiny bit bad that we kind of sort of lied and said that they vying to be the ‘Face of Vegas,’ which is what this show is called,” Kressley explains. However, there is $100,000 cash prize up for grabs and a feature in People magazine for the “True Beauty” winner.
“True Beauty” 2010 “Face of Vegas” Judges Interview – Do Contestants Know What’s Really Being Judged?
Do the contestants really understand what this whole reality show is geared towards? What’s their comprehension of what’s to come? The “True Beauty” cast really believes everything is based on their external beauty.
Judge, Carson Kressley shares, “So, they think they’re going through all of these challenges to become the next ‘Face of Vegas.’ So, we’re putting all of them from a series of challenges to see if they’ll stop a drunk driver, steal an item from a store, tell a pregnant lady not to be drinking, help a hurt puppy. All kinds of things. We’re watching them 24 hours a day.”
All of these challenges are underway as the “True Beauty” contestants are being judged in set up photo shoots, and commercial shoots, but really all that’s being judged is their moral character as elaborate tests are placed on them.
Other than the moral tests, how do the contestants get along with each other? Is there any compromises or friendships? “True Beauty” judge, Carson Kressley says, “There is screaming, cheating, fighting, there is hair pulling – and that’s just Beth and me! The contestants are even worse!”
Ostrosky and Kressley admit there is unbelievable conduct among contestants. Kressley says there are “many jaw dropping moments where you’re like ‘OMG, I’m not LOL, and I can’t believe she just did that.’!”
“True Beauty” 2010 “Face of Vegas” Judges Interview – What “Face of Vegas” Judges Take Away
Beth Ostrosky Stern and Carson Kressley take away a lot from the show. What made the biggest impression on them? Kressley says, “The most memorable thing is how people will stab each other in the back in order to, like, win a reality show. You really kind of see that bad behavior. So, it’s got everything. You want to root for that person you identify with and say ‘yeah do the right thing, you’re being a great guy or great girl.’ And there also those people you, like, just want to deport them!”
Is the title “True Beauty” the best name for the show as contestants compete for the “Face of Vegas”? Kressley answers, “I don’t know if we should even call it ‘True Beauty’ or ‘The True Self,’ because we’re really seeing who they really are when they think no one’s watching.”
New hosts of “True Beauty,” Carson Kressley (‘Queer Eye’ fame) and Beth Ostrosky Stern (“Mrs. King of All Media’ fame) uphold the charade of making contestants believe they are competing to be the next “Face of Vegas” while they’re being judged on moral strength and character.
