Model Latina Miami
premiered last night on SiTV, a station we've never heard of and pretty sure we don't get, but we browsed through the first episode online .
The funny thing is that runways of the world could certainly use a healthy dose of Latina spice. Only a few leggy Brazilian glamazons, such as Gisele Bundchen and Raquel Zimmermann, come to mind, but Model Latina Miami certainly isn't going to change this. For one, not a single one of the girls seems to be taller than five-foot-eight. Ariel Stein would never approve.
Then again, the show is looking for a mix of "beauty, brains, grace, and style," and the girls compete in challenges other than photo shoots. But if I want to watch a show trying to promote that women are more than just looks, I'm probably not going to watch a reality-TV modeling show in the first place. So what you're left with is a pretty blatant America's Next Top Model rip-off designed for drama.
