Queen Bees, a new reality series debuting on The N this summer, will attempt to give seven self-centered, narcissistic teen girls a dose of humility and compassion. The diva who makes the biggest change for the better will win $25,000.
Yoanna House (pictured), winner of the second installment of America’s Top Model, will host the eight-episode series, beginning with its Friday, July 11 debut on The N and Nick at Nite at 9 p.m. ET.
Billed as the “ultimate mean girl makeover” reality series, Queen Bees will take an “introspective look at seven girls who have been nominated by family members, boyfriends and friends in the hopes that they will better themselves from the inside out,” network officials said.
While the girls think they are competing to be the biggest diva in the house, they quickly learn that they are there because people want them to change. Each young woman will take a closer look at who they are and re-examine their not-so-nice ways.
“Queen Bees is a unique teen reality series that will have viewers glued to their TVs, laptops and cell phones to see if these young women can actually make a change for the better,” Sarah Tomassi Lindman, The N’s senior vice president and general manager, said in a statement. “We hope this series, which showcases The N's take on the reality genre—‘reality with morality’—will encourage viewers to examine how we speak to each other and how hurtful words and actions can be.”
Queen Bees is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. The series is executive-produced by James Rowley (Beat The Geeks, America's Most Talented Kids).
