MTV Picks Up Reality Competition Show The Stylist

Stylist Show Overload? MTV Picks Up The Stylist

We've already had The Rachel Zoe Project and Stylista, not to mention Project Runway and all of its knock-offs. So does the world really need another reality show about stylists?


Guess we're about to find out. MTV is ordering a new reality competition show about stylists called — inventively — The Stylist. The format will be familiar to anyone who's ever seen one of the other shows: a group of professional stylists will compete in various challenges for the chance to win agency representation and presumably jump-start a career.

Aside from The Duel and never-ending repeats of America's Next Top Model, MTV hasn't gotten too far in the reality competition game before now, so I'll be interested to see more about the format of the show (the number of episodes, a potential host, and further details have yet to be announced). At the same time, I'm wondering if there's anything MTV could bring to The Stylist that could help me shake the feeling that I've already seen the whole thing before. Your thoughts?
