GSN has set start dates for summer reality series Skin Wars (Wednesday, Aug. 6, 9 p.m. ET) and Idiot Test (Tuesday, Aug. 12, 8 p.m. ET).
Skin Wars, hosted by actress Rebecca Romijn, who told Multichannel News at GSN's upfront in March she was drawn in by the subject matter, having played body-painted Mystique in X-Men, is an eight-episode, hour-long competition show that seeks to find the most talented and versatile body painters in the country. Judges in the series include body painting icons Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina and Drag Race host RuPaul (pictured l.-r.).
Idiot Test, hosted by comedian Ben Gleib and based on the highly popular app games, gives two pairs of contestants the opportunity to face off in several rounds of rapid-fire questions whose answers any "idiot" should know. Contestants play the game on a giant touch screen in the center of the set.
