Katie Price - Katie Price To Host Us Reality Show
Katie Price has reportedly signed a £1 million deal to present new US reality TV show 'Make Me A Hunk'.
Katie Price has reportedly landed a £1 million deal to present a US reality TV show.
The 32-year-old former glamour model - who travelled to Los Angeles last month for screen tests - will front the eight-part series 'Make Me A Hunk', where she will help transform a geeky guy in each episode.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It is a huge deal for Kate and she is thrilled. It is the biggest gig of her career to date and the first time she will have fronted a TV show."
Katie - who recently filed for divorce from cage-fighter Alex Reid after 11 months of marriage - is said to have won over producers with her acerbic wit and British charm and now the show is the focus of a bidding war between three big US networks, ABC, E! and CW.
The insider added: "Contrary to other reports, this deal was the reason she was in the States. American networks love all things British at the moment.
"They feel viewers will warm to Kate's-larger-than life personality and blunt put-downs - although producers were startled at how sarcastic and rude she was to the guy in the pilot episode. But it worked, she toughened him up and worked her magic."
