If you haven’t been paying attention - and chances are you have not - The Face is sort of Oxygen’s answer to “America’s Next Top Model.” It’s a reality/competition series with the stated goal of finding the next great supermodel.
Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha serve as supermodel coaches, and photographer Nigel Barker is the host.
And one of the contestants is a local. Utahn Ashley Hanneman is in the top 24, which will be cut down to a top 12 in tonight’s episode (10 p.m. Oxygen).
There’s another local tie of sorts. One of the producers is Elisabeth Murdoch - Rupert Murdoch’s daughter - was was the program director at KSTU-Ch. 13 a couple of decades ago.
