'ANTM' Winner Eva Marcille Hosts Season 2 of 'Hair Battle Spectacular'

The Oxygen network says they are Top Model obsessed, and they're definitely proving themselves! In 2009 they slated ANTM Cycle 8 winner CariDee English to host their show Pretty Wicked, and now they've tapped Cycle 3 winner Eva Marcille to host season 2 of Hair Battle Spectacular.

Season 2 of Hair Battle Spectacular -- premiering tonight at 10pm on Oxygen -- pits 11 of America’s hottest stylists against each other to see who can deliver the biggest and best in fantasy hair design. Part sculpture and part pop art, fantasy hair has become part of mainstream pop culture through icons such as Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.

Across eight episodes, each challenge -- meet them here! -- requires contestants to create outrageous coifs that resemble everything from Hollywood stars to hounds and handbags. The stylists then enter the ring to bring the drama and present their hair creations in a high-octane and stylized performance.

After each challenge, the judges, including award-winning fantasy hair designer Derek J, former Rachel Zoe assistant and stylist Taylor Jacobson and a rotating guest judge, will critique the stylists on creativity, execution and overall presentation. In addition to blow-by-blow drama in the contest, there is also the day-to-day drama between the cohabitating stylists who fight each week to stay in the game and win the ultimate prize of $100,000.

Check out a video preview for the new season plus some more photos of Eva the Diva after the jump!

Eva looks great, no? Hair Battle Spectacular returns tonight at 10pm on Oxygen.
