UPDATED! Make Me a SuperModel debuts! Bravo scouted TWO of their models from IMTA!

The Bravo Original Production Make Me a Supermodel Season 2 debuts this week! Be sure to catch the premiere of one of the hottest reality shows around!!! 16 hopefuls compete for a $100,000 Maybelline New York spokesmodel contract, a one-year contract with New York Model Management and a fashion pictorial in Cosmopolitan magazine!

Bravo scouted for models at the 2008 IMTA in New York city last year! The representatives from Bravo saw models during competitions and other events where they created a callback list. They saw and met with their top picks and found TWO of the models for this season's show!

CJ will be one of the 16 models doing her best to win it all during 12 highly competitive rounds to see who can be a Supermodel! CJ is tapped for the first challenge which is a photoshoot in a plexiglass cube suspended above New York city. The guys are being mentored by host Tyson Beckford while the girls will be mentored by a surprise supermodel!

We expect great things from CJ as she did very well at IMTA and received 58 callbacks from modeling agents from all over the world. At IMTA, she won awards in Swimwear, Runway, Jeans and Fashion Print. At IMTA, she signed with Revolution Management Inc., a worldwide management company for models. It was at IMTA that she was pursued by the producers of Make Me A Supermodel, and she was cast for the show in August. C.J. told the Oakland Tribune "I believe I can do this, I have a good support system and am really looking forward to what will happen (in New York). I don't give up and I have a competitive nature, I know what I want."

The producers also found one of the male models at IMTA. Branden Rickmen competed at IMTA in New York in 2008 also and Bravo Make Me A Supermodel noticed him and singled him out for a callback. Now he, too, is part of the exciting reality series and in the running for the $100,000 contract! Check out this gorgeous shot of Branden!

Please check your local listings to get caught up and cheer CJ and Branden on!
The series airs the new episodes Wednesday nights at 10/9c!
