A dose of reality

If you think modeling is 'fun' or a 'really easy way to make money' then you NEED to see this show. Yes, Paul is abrasive, but guess what? The modelling industry is rife with people who are going to take advantage/abuse potential models. Paul is giving a glimpse of the tough world that it really is. Yes, the series could be more polished, Paul could wear his 'nice' face - but that ain't modelling. This series takes the bloom off the rose. Bottom line, don't model unless you are very secure and can handle a tough, tough business.

Must Watch

I think this is a MUST WATCH for any family that has a child interested in the modeling world, this shows what it's really like.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Remodeled highlights what it takes to have a successful modeling agency, including knowing all the details of the fashion industry, preparing models for castings, and keeping bookable models from signing on with their competitors. It also shows some of the pressures that models face when trying to break into the business, like being prepared for constant rejection.

Unfortunately, the parts of the show that focus on Fisher's attempts to "remodel" the agencies suffer from too much repetition and too much unappealing attitude from Fisher. The parts that target new models going on calls to designers are more interesting, but they don't go into too much depth. Still, viewers entertained by the modeling and fashion world will no doubt find at least portions of this voyeuristic look into the modeling world worth watching.
