The 24-year-old, who had no knowledge of being judged by his inner beauty, received a cash prize for his good behavior in the last eight weeks of the competition.
ABC's reality show "True Beauty" has crowned its second season winner on Monday, July 19 night. Shining with his inner beauty is Taylor Bills, a 24-year-old former Arizona League Seattle Mariners professional baseball player from Irvine, CA.
The show conceals the true objective in looking for a winner by telling the contestants that they want the beautiful ones to win while in fact they judge them by their inner beauty. This was revealed to the shocked final three which included Bills, Erika Othen and Craig Francyzk. They were given a key to the judges' spy room and were played a footage of their bad behavior in the last eight weeks.
In the discussion among the judges, Carson Kressley said Bills is with temper while Othen is catty. After the debate, the judges agreed on letting go Craig as the third-placer and Othen as the runner-up. Bills, as a winner, got to go home with $100,000 and a photo in People magazine.
Speaking of the nature of the show which exposes someone's garbage, host Vanessa Minnillo said, "It's tough. No matter how much you see us giggling and having a good time, it is heartbreaking when we expose them. I have seen these people crying their eyes out backstage, they are so mortified by what they've done."
