The sounds of “Snip, snip, STAB” will recommence on February 3rd. And I am happy.
Sheer Genius returns to Bravo with new contestants, new egos, and new faces in the judging arena. Gone from the show are Jaclyn Smith as host and Rene Fris as mentor. These duties will be taken over by Camila Alves and Orlando Pita, respectively, and add Jonathan Antin (E!’s Fashion Emergency and Bravo’s Blow Out), famed hairstylist to the stars and you have a makeover worthy to be sampled. But don’t worry, we still got Judge/World Renowned Hairstylist Kim Vo to keep the newcomers in check.
Now let me be clear about some things… I watch Sheer Genius for catty putdowns and to see what people are getting away with in terms of “fashion”. I am not an expert in anything dealing with hair, but I do know ugly when I see it, so please be patient when correcting me in the terminology when it comes to hairstyling. Moving on…
The contestants range from my home state of Tennessee all the way to England and some of them seem to have peaked already in their careers, with some people having worked for celebs like David Beckham, Liza Minelli, Matthew Fox, Jerry Seinfield, Mary J. Blige and Rose McGowen to name a few. These achievements are enough to tune in and watch the contestants’ egos get snipped down to size by the judges and witness the comments that are bound to be slung afterwards.
So here are your Sheer Genuis Season Three Contestants who will put the blades to the split ends and give us a good chuckle in the process:
Adee, 36, London England
Faatemah, 36, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Arzo, 35, San Francisco, Califronia
Amy, 25, Toronto, California
Brig (interesting name), 33, Simi Valley, California
Brian, 37, New York City, New York
April, 42, New York City, New York
Jon, 38, Nashville, Tennessee
Giacomo, 43, Austin, Texas
Joey, 29, Melbourne, Austrailia
Matthew, 38, Denver, Colorado
Janine, 28, Los Angeles, California
So who do you think you will root for? I got some faves already, but that changes quickly after I see them in action. It’s usually their attitude or talent that makes me switch gears in the rooting department.
Sheer Genius returns to Bravo on February 3rd @ 10/9c.
