"Model Employee" (TV show) is a reality competition series on VH1 that will determine just how far eight models will go for the opportunity of becoming the face of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. American model Chrissy Teigen serves as host.

In order to represent Mandalay Bay, the contestants will be put through a series of challenges designed to test not only their modeling prowess, but also their working knowledge of the hotel — literally. These runway rulers will have to prove they know the resort inside and out by trading in their haute couture gowns for basic hotel uniforms and performing the dirtiest and most physically exhausting jobs that make the hotel function. Besides cleaning Mandalay Bay's famous shark tank or sifting through all of the resort's trash for recyclable items, the contestants will also be given the opportunity to showcase their modeling abilities by being charming, professional and sexy for a panel of judges in an effort to show they can truly do it all. The contestant who proves able to handle these important jobs, while keeping her poise, will be rewarded the opportunity to represent Mandalay Bay with a $100,000 year-long spokes-model contract.

The contestants will be evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of Vanessa Branch, former Orbit Gum spokes model, Patrick Miller, VP of Marketing at Mandalay Bay, and Jimmy Smith, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Amusement Park Entertainment. The cast of "Model Employee" includes Alexis Farmer, Aspen Brandy Lea, Britany Trankino, Jassmine Amos, Johanna Da Ru, Shannone Holt, Sonja Ewy and Shah Granville.

VH1's "Model Employee" is produced for VH1 by production company Studio Lambert ("Undercover Boss") and is executive produced by Eli Holzman and Stephen Lambert for Studio Lambert. Troy Searer of Giant Pirates is the showrunner and executive producer. The series is originally created by veteran model agent Michael Flutie who also serves as the executive producer for Madwood Media. Kevin Bartel is the creative executive and co-executive producer for Studio Lambert. Executive producers for VH1 are Jill Holmes, Tom Huffman, Stacy Alexander and Jeff Olde.
