Watch out, Tyra! There's another model-wannabe show on the horizon. Models.com reports that MTV is creating a competition reality show called Model Makers, in which ten contestants compete for twelve weeks "of intensive physical fitness training to help them get down to their ideal size" to become a high-fashion model. Hmm, sounds more like a Biggest Loser and America's Next Top Model hybrid, but we guess we'll just have to wait and see. The winner gets a contract with a modeling agency (which one, seriously?), and contestants are judged by industry experts, physical-fitness trainers, photographers, a model authority, and a nutritionist. A model authority? Way to come up with that new term, MTV. Think this could be your big break? Check out the full release after the jump. —Sharon Clott
ARE YOU FIT TO BE A MODEL?

If so, MTV is looking for you to join the cast of its new reality television show, MODEL MAKERS. Join the competition and turn your dream into reality!
Michael Flutie and Chris Abrego with MTV Networks will offer 10 women the opportunity to work with a panel of industry experts, physical fitness trainers, photographers, a model authority and a nutritionist. Under the watchful eyes of these experts, models will endure twelve weeks of intensive physical fitness training to help them get down to their ideal size. Models will also compete in various high fashion challenges to determine who has star quality.
