The Genuine Ken
On January 18th "Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend” will premiere on Hulu.
Eight Ken-testants will compete in a series of elimination challenges to determine if they, like Ken (Barbie’s ex!), have the qualities to be the “ultimate boyfriend for every occasion. Whether it’s a surfing competition, a cooking challenge or proving they have the best style, the guys will showcase their Ken-like qualities to host Whitney Port and other celebrity guest judges.
The winner of Genuine Ken will receive a modeling contract with Mattel, and a one-of-a-kind doll made in his likeness. I think that's actually a pretty cool prize, but then I was a Barbie collector for decades.
No word yet on if the contestants have nothing but a small plastic hump in their pants. Now that would be genuine!
