NBC Studios is behind the series which will contain original twists and turns for the current dating/reality genre. In the show, each week the beauty learns about her suitors during group and individual dates, as she determines which one might be her soul mate.
Kathy Griffin ("The Mole") will host the project which, like FOX's "Mr.
Personality" will test how important looks are in the dating process.
Average Joe 2: Hawaii Hot on the heels of this Fall's hit Average Joe, NBC premieres the second installment of the series, Average Joe: Hawaii, on Monday, January 5 (10-11 p.m. This new series was taped before the first series ever aired, thus protecting the twist.
Photographers snapped up pictures of Serena Williams showing off her bikini body on Miami Beach.
"E News Now" broadcasted the photos and host Melana Scantlin said that Williams has "slimmed down" since April of last year.
The tennis star, whose mysterious foot injury has resulted in all kinds of rumors, was also shown lounging with rapper and ex-boyfriend Common.
