Shear Genius comes screaming back tonight at 10 on Bravo. We got a screener of the first episode and we have some good news and some not-so-good news.
The good news is that it's the usual band of over-the-top, attention-seeking, smack-talking hair stylists and we have nicknames for half of them already. Wait till you get a load of the chick with the yellow hair. Quite possibly the biggest attention whore we've even seen. And remember, we've seen Roberto from Launch My Line.
The other good news is that they can still wring entertaining challenges out of hairstyling, with a punk-rock-to-classic hair shortcut challenge and a runway hair challenge with a creative twist:
The not-so-good news is that Camila Alves makes first-season Heidi Klum sound like Diane Sawyer. Seriously. They should leave the line-readings to someone else and have her just flip her hair and stand there. The girl is no Jaclyn Smith, that's for sure. And that mentor dude is no Rene. Oh, and there's also the whole Jonathan Antin thing. Yeah. Not so thrilled on the host/judge/mentor front.
Still, that cast will keep us coming back and we can always make fun of Camila Alves' accent like we used to make fun of Rene's. Plus, the Lips of Vo are back!
