Here at VH1, we love reality TV shows. From our own programming, which includes Love and Hip Hop, to the world of Bravo and all those in between. While reality shows vary in concept and theme, one genre that always delivers is modeling. Ever since Tyra Banks strutted down the runway to announce who would be America’s next top model, we’ve been addicted to shows that go behinds the lens of fashion. The shows on our list of favorites cover everything from finding the freshest face to running a modeling agency. While some are better than others, all deliver and drama, excitement and tons of hair weave. Also: Naomi Campbell.

Ahead of the season finale of ABC’s hit series Scandal, Joe Morton sits down with Nick Lachey on Big Morning Buzz Live to decide just who Olivia Pope should end up with: President Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III or Captain Jake Ballard. It’s a tough decision to make considering both characters are portrayed by the hotties, Tony Goldwyn and Scott Foley, respectively.
