MTV has announced From G's to Gents, a new Charm School-like reality series that will pit 14 gruff guys against each other to see who can make the best transformation into a true gentleman, will premiere Tuesday, July 15 at 10PM ET/PT.
From G's to Gents will follow the contestants as they participate in a series of weekly challenges designed to test everything from style and etiquette to chivalry and business.
Throughout their journey, the contestants will be mentored by Fonzworth Bentley -- who previously worked as the personal assistant for Sean "Diddy" Combs and also appeared on MTV's Making the Band reality series.
In addition, music and business mogul Master P, former Queer Eye food and wine expert and current Top Chef judge Ted Allen, music producer Irv Gotti, designer Ozwald Boateng, and recording artists Danity Kane will also make cameo appearances during various challenges.
In the end, the contestant deemed to have made the greatest transformation will earn $100,000 "to jump start a whole new life," according to MTV.
From G's to Gents is produced by MTV, Cris Abrego Productions and FoxxKing Entertainment, with Abrego, Jamie Foxx, Marcus King and Ben Samek serving as executive producers.
