Pageant Place will see Donald Trump teaming up with MTV. Together, they plan on mashing The Real World with The Apprentice. According to Variety, the series will star the winners of Trump's beauty pageants.

The half-hour series will chronicle the lives of Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA as they are forced to live in a small New York condo together. Former Miss USA Tara Conner, the one that got into all that trouble last year, will also star on the show as a den mother and chaperone to the women.

Trump stated, "We'd been thinking about everything that happens backstage and how women like Tara captured the imagination of so many of us, including a slob named Rosie O'Donnell, who didn't like that I gave Tara a second chance. And we thought, wouldn't it be great if we let the cameras roll?"

The first season of "Pageant Place" will follow current Miss Universe Riyo Mori, Miss USA Rachel Smith and Miss Teen USA Katie Blair as they model, make appearances on behalf of various causes and embark on international trips.

The show goes into production this summer, with plans to air on MTV by the end of the year.
