Tyra Banks Heads Back to Reality

Smize queen Tyra Banks is heading back to the small screen with a new series and this time, the beauty and fashion diva will be flossing her business skills.

NBC gave the green light to Funded, a reality series that provides a competitive platform for entrepreneurs with start-up companies to battle for an investment in their business.

Tyra, along with Rob Dyrdek and Rohan Oza, will serve as business mentors who will guide the aspiring business owners during their fight for a $1 million cash infusion.

On the show start-up companies will be paired with one of the three mentors and face various challenges. At the end of the each episode, both the entrepreneurs and mentors will pitch their business to a venture capitalist in front of a live audience.

Only one start-up will be deemed the winner and receive the backing of venture capitalists along with the $1 million cash infusion per episode.

Sounds interesting!

We’ll keep you looped on when the show premieres.
