”Are You Hot?” is one of 2003’s wildest new reality shows
PREMIERE Late winter 2003
WHAT IT IS The title says it all. Men and women with strong egos and tiny swimsuits (yes, contestants are expected to strut their stuff in streetwear and beach togs) will be evaluated by a panel of experts who mercilessly deconstruct every flaw. Concerned viewers can put in their two bits via the Internet. Then 16 finalists will fly to Los Angeles for deluxe makeovers before the final pageant. In the end, only two will stand proud as ”The Sexiest People in America.”
WHY WE CARE Finally — Miss America without all the boring talent and personality contests; ”Baywatch” without all the distracting plot lines! Best of all, the equal-opportunity-ogling factor makes this mandatory date-night viewing.
THE VERDICT Trashy voyeurism — in other words, great TV.
