VH1's Next Reality Series to Combine Models, Janitor Work

"Model Employee," hosted by swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen, airs on VH1 in early 2013.

Tall and tan and young and lovely, the model is scrubbing the toilet.

VH1’s next reality series sounds vaguely fetish-pornographic. “Model Employee,” which premieres this winter, features eight runway ladies competing to be the face of a massive resort by cleaning the bathrooms, maintaining the shark tank, sifting through trash for recyclable items—you know, actual jobs.

Chrissy Teigen, former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl (who’s engaged to singer John Legend), hosts.

“Model Employee will take viewers behind the curtain of the massive and glamorous Mandalay Bay via gorgeous models who will need to learn how the place actually runs before they can become the face of the resort,” Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Production at VH1, said in the press release. 

“Watching really pretty people do some not so pretty work in hopes of truly understanding the brand they hope to represent is an eye-opening experience, and lots of fun to watch.”
