Shakespeare's Next Top Model

SPOOF. Greetings and welcome to “Shakespeare’s Next Top Model,” the TV-reality show where the lovely ladies of Shakespeare compete for a modeling contract and the chance to be Shakespeare’s next top model. The three judges―Cleopatra, Puck, and Princess Catherine―will speak with contestants and review their modeling portfolios to decide a winner. Contestants vying for a modeling contract include Bianca, Desdemona, Juliet, Ophelia, and Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth arrives on set and mistakenly thinks she’s competing for “Shakespeare’s Next Top Queen” and Othello shows up in a jealous rage thinking Desdemona is auditioning for “Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire”!
