UPN's 'Top Model' adds online talk show co-hosted by April Wilkner
By Reality TV World staff, 09/22/2005
Similar to what its CBS sister network has done with its Big Brother and Survivor reality shows, UPN has announced that the new fifth edition of America's Next Top Model will feature its own live Internet talk show.
Dubbed Covergirl's Talk Model -- The Top Model Internet Talk Show (can you guess who the sponsor is?), the program will be co-hosted by former Top Model 2 contestant April Wilkner and Access Hollywood correspondent Egypt and air weekly on Thursdays at 2PM ET beginning September 22.
Like CBS' reality TV Internet talk shows, UPN's The Top Model Internet Talk Show (available on UPN.com) will be available free of charge and feature appearances by the Top Model contestant who was eliminated during the show's previous Wednesday night broadcast.
In addition to the co-hosts and eliminated contestants, viewers will also see one other familiar face on the show -- Top Model 4 winner Naima Mora. Mora (who received a CoverGirl contract as part of her Top Model 4 victory) will host a special weekly segment called Naima Knows Fashion & Beauty.
