Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Seriousness and sobriety were not the strong suits of this slightly satirical reality-competition series, in which several male and female models competed in a rapid procession of "intellectual" challenges to win the honor of America's Most Smartest Model--not to mention a $100,000 cash prize. All told, there were seven "Bimbos" (girls) vs. seven "Himbos" (boys), making a total of, uh, wait, don't tell me, fourteen, right? Judges Ben Stein and Mary Alice Stephenson made little effort to hide their contempt for the contestants, which of course added to the fun. Hosted by Brett Novek and Jeff Pickel, America's Most Smartest Model was unveiled by VH1 on October 7, 2007...you know, the day before Christmas.
