Project Runway, but with beauticians
25 September 2017 | by Valentijn78See all my reviews

I'd give this 5 stars, based solely on the first episode, if ratings were enabled yet.

The look and format of the show is straight from Project Runway. If they aren't using the same catwalk, it's at least based on the one from Project Runway. The lead judge, Adriana Lima, even manages to sound eerily like Heidi Klum, despite that they come from different continents.

It's strange that the contestants (who have a hair and/or makeup background) are expected to also delve into selecting the attire of their models, and directing them for a photo shoot. I'm not well versed in the technicalities of the modeling world, but I thought directors of some sort would usually oversee that, as well as telling the beauticians what to do.

Perhaps the idea is to find a beautician who is also a naturally talented but untrained director, but there doesn't seem to be any educational component to the show. Hence the photo shoot consisted of a lot of frustrated shouting from the contestants, and confusion from their models.

Aside from the lack of a clear direction or concept for the show, it was fairly enjoyable to watch. The chaos and frustration were a bit humorous to watch.
