While The City may have been cancelled, Whitney Port is still keeping busy. The fashion designer is adding "host" to her resume, as she will be the frontwoman for the web reality series Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend. The show will feature eight guys ages 21-30 competing to prove they have the qualities of the "ultimate boyfriend for every occassion" in elimination challenges such as surfing, a talent show and a fashion challenge -- judged by a line-up of celebrity guest judges. Whitney blogged: Hi my loves, "As some of you may have heard, I've signed on to host the new reality series, "Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend." The purpose of the show is to find a guy that embodies all of the qualities of Barbie's longtime boyfriend, Ken. Today is the first day of filming and I was so nervous this morning because I've never hosted something before. I called my mom and she just totally eased my nerves (I'm still such a mama's girl haha). So I hung up the phone, gave myself a little pep talk, and I was good to go. We've been filming since this morning and so far so good :)" xoxo, Whit Genuine Ken will run for eight episodes and premiere on Hulu on Tuesday, January 18.
