If America's Next Top Model and Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? had a child, it would probably look a lot like this reality/game show hybrid that pits models against each other in an elimination-style battle of wits. It's got guilty-pleasure potential for channel-surfers ... but only if there's nothing better on.

America's Most Smartest Model has some problems, including a ho-hum contestant pool that contributes to the sense that the show was somewhat slapped together. But Stein's ever-changing roster of dismissal lines is a definite highlight. A prime example? "Like the leg bones of a cetacean mammal, you are now vestigial." That's one of the best parting comments since "You are the weakest link. Good-bye."
