'True Beauty' Winner Deemed Gorgeous Inside and OutOn the season finale of 'True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC), host and judge Vanessa Minnillo said finalists Craig, Taylor and Erika had "all learned something from this," making them all "beautiful people."

But of course, only one could win $100,000 and appear in 'People' magazine. And since they were in Las Vegas, Minnillo and fellow host/judge Carson Kressley announced the champion in the style of a slot machine, with the winning finalist's face rolling up.

So who was granted the title of "True Beauty"?

Castle - Tuesday July 20, 8 pm ET/PT, CTV

CTV brings this sassy detective show over from A Channel for a reprise -- which is the perfect opportunity to get to know one my favourite couples on TV. Well, they're not actually a couple -- yet. Nathan Fillion's crime writer and Stana Katic's detective have the best chemistry on TV since 'Moonlighting'. The writing isn't always perfect but this pair make it work every time.

A 'True Beauty' Breakdown in Wedding Challenge (VIDEO)

A 'True Beauty' Breakdown During Wedding ChallengeWhen Amy didn't get picked to be a bridesmaid on 'True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC), she broke down sobbing. "I never thought I'd be this miserably bad at something," she said. Judge Carson Kressley could relate, saying, "I feel her pain: 8th grade gym class. Hello. Never picked ever."

As she sat there weeping, another contestant grabbed a tissue. But instead of offering it to Amy, he used it to wipe his sweaty brow. "Amy's distraught. It's unfortunate, but you know what, I'm not here to console her. I'm here to compete -- it's as simple as that," he said.

But he doesn't know it's an inner-beauty competition. And the judges saw the whole thing on the hidden cameras. Not so simple after all.

A Sore Loser on 'True Beauty' (VIDEO)

A Sore Loser on 'True Beauty'Judges Carson Kressley, Beth Stern and Vanessa Minnillo confronted Liz Parada about her inner-beauty shortcomings on 'True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC), revealing that "the winner of this competition is gonna be the complete package: a perfect combination of both inner and outer beauty," explained Minnillo.

Before eliminating Liz from the contest, they showed her footage of the six hidden-camera challenges since the season began, five of which she'd failed. After watching herself steal and give away magic-trick secrets, among other things, she stormed off stage.

"Oh no, she did not just walk out!" said Kressley. Um, yeah, looks that way.

A Banana, a Half-Naked Dude, and Some Creepiness on 'True Beauty' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jun 22nd 2010 2:05AM
A Banana, a Half-Naked Dude, and Some Creepiness on 'True Beauty'Model David goes a little too far during the latest photo shoot on 'True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC). The contestants' job is to create an ad campaign using random food items. So David chooses to pose with some fruit, but then really seems to fixate on a banana.

Why? ...Because a banana looks like a penis, that's why. At least, that's David's high level of thinking.

David prances into the shoot wearing nothing but some terrifyingly revealing underwear. Then, he specifically requests a banana, while gesturing with his hand down near his, uh, private parts. "I want to be holding the banana like it's my 'junk,'' he says.

The rest of the shoot is pretty much taken up by the judges and the photographers laughing in embarrassed horror. Meanwhile, David continually positions the banana near his -- yes -- private parts. Okay, dude. We got it. A banana kind of looks like a penis. Not subtle. You can stop now.

Kicked Off for Cheating on 'True Beauty' (VIDEO)

Kicked Off for Cheating on 'True Beauty''True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC) is a reality show that judges people based on their "inner beauty." Strangely, the series only seems to pick really hot men and women while looking for "inner beauty," but, well, whatever.

The other thing about the show is that the players are not told about the true nature of the contest. All the contestants think they are being analyzed as models. They believe they are scored based solely on their outer appearance. But the audience and the judges know better.

On the latest episode, we have a bit of a scandal. A contestant named Regina has violated the rules by using her cell phone to contact outsiders -- and by doing this, she manages to learn what the show is really about.

[Spoiler alert.]

Failure on 'True Beauty' (VIDEO)

Failure on 'True Beauty'What would you do if you saw a very drunk man trying to get into a car? You'd do the right thing ... wouldn't you?

Doing the right thing is the important issue on 'True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC). The reality show gathers together a lot of very, very hot people. But the contestants are judged on "inner beauty" as well as outer beauty. And that's where the trouble begins for most of the players in the game.

'True Beauty' hosts Beth Ostrosky Stern & Carson Kressley'True Beauty' is back for a second season of stealthy spy work, all done in the name of uncovering the needle in a haystack person with true inner beauty in a sea of reality star wannabes.

New hosts Carson Kressley and Beth Ostrosky Stern -- he of 'Queer Eye' fame and she of Mrs. King of All Media fame -- are there to keep up the charade, telling contestants they're vying to be the "face of Vegas," when in reality it's all a test of moral strength.

AOL TV got the dish on the new season from the blonde bombshell duo, who tease that the contestants are outrageous and there are plenty of jaw-dropping moments. Carson also asks Beth a very personal question you have to see to believe ...

May Sweeps Bring Summer TV Blues

by Stephanie Earp, posted May 5th 2010 11:16AM
Welcome to the month of May, which songs and poems tells us is primarily responsible for bringing forth darling buds and spring flowers.

Not a single epigram or aphorism mentions May Sweeps, when May pulls the curtain on the TV season that was, bringing many good things -- and plenty of crap things -- to an end.

Over the next 30 days or so, over 60 shows will say goodbye and leave the airwaves for an extended summer vacation, while others are saying a permanent goodbye. Once they go, TV will leave us with nothing but a smattering of viewing options. Faced with such a dearth -- especially once the hockey post-season is over -- my upstairs neighbors usually cancel their satellite subscription for the summer. Ay yai yai! This is crazy talk! I happen to share that satellite subscription with them and I now have to convince them that it's worth continuing to split the bill for the delight of a few summer series.

But look at what I have to work with:

ABC and CBS set their midseason schedules

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 2nd 2008 7:25PM
CastleWith all this talk that the fall season not exactly thrilling TV viewers (old shows losing viewers, not many new shows catching on in a big way, quirky favorites being canceled), it's probably time to start talking about what shows we can expect after the new year, at least from two of the networks.

On ABC we have Castle, with Nathan Fillion as a mystery novelist who helps police solve crimes (of course he does). It starts Monday, March 9 at 10pm. ABC also has The Unusuals, with Amber Tamblyn as a cop transferred to a new precinct filled with odd characters. It starts Wednesday, April 8 at 10pm. And as we've already told you, the new version of Cupid is coming to ABC too. It starts on Tuesday, March 24 at 10pm.

The new season of Lost premieres on Wednesday, January 21 at 9pm, and Scrubs comes back on Tuesday, January 6 at 9pm.
