Mambwe Kamanga

Former Miss Zambia UK, Mambwe Kamanga has entered the race for America’s smartest model.  Born in Zambia, Mambwe grew up in England and went to America for higher education.  She trained as a professional model with the exclusive John Casablanca School of Modelling, a division of the prestigious Elite Model Agency in the U.S.A.

Beauty and Brains

Fourteen models, (7 men, 7 women) all of whom think they could be the smartest in America, will live together as they compete to determine which of them has what it takes to be dubbed "America's Most Smartest Model" — The perfect combination of Beauty and Brains.

Beauty is a double-edged sword. It seems to be a commonly accepted notion in the world today that an inverse proportion between brains and beauty exists. Basically the prettier someone is, the less intelligent they are expected to be.

And no one has it worse than models. True or not, we all assume that models are stupid. In fact, we want them to be stupid. We need them to be stupid because life would be too unfair if the beautiful people were smarter than us.

But is this assumption really true? Do smart models exist, or does a life devoted to getting by on one's looks make a person stupid?

Hence, VH1 will attempt to answer this burning question by casting a wide net in search of "America's Most Smartest Model".

In every episode the 'himbos' and 'bimbos' will face challenges that put both their overall intelligence and their beauty to the test. The individual or team that wins will be safe, the loser(s) will face elimination.

In the end, only one model will prove they're more than just another pretty face and take home the Extreme Style by VO5 $100,000 prize and the coveted title of "America's Most Smartest Model."

Can Mambwe do it?

 “Mambwe has that fire, that hotness, that she brings to the LabelAs our spokes-model, Mambwe has the critical qualities that sells our product to the target market”, says Mr Knotz, President & CEO of Red Gorilla Clothing in Atlanta.

 Mambwe started her modeling career at the age of 16 when she participated in the Miss Zambia UK Beauty Pageant in London. She went on to represent Zambia in the Miss Queen of Africa and the Face of the Millennium.
