If there's one reality show genre that never seems to get old, it's the makeover. There's no shortage of bad taste or bad choices, so there are no shortage of rooms or wardrobes in need of salvation.
And so "On the Road with Austin & Santino" (Lifetime, 10:30 p.m.) works; it takes the makeover show complete with the Cinderella triumph aspect and adds the fun of fish out of water hijinks, bromance, travelogue, Americana and custom fashion. I mean, could you ask for anything more?
Austin Scarlett was on the first season of "Runway," making the legendary corn husk dress. He came in fourth and now is the creative director for Amsale, the luxury bridal collection. Santino Rice was on season two; he finished third and did a near-perfect Tim Gunn impersonation (The content is obscene). He's also a judge on "RuPaul's Drag Race."
