Bosworth, is regarded to have been brought onto the vapid show for the purpose of creating a rift between stars Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag.
The Vancover Sun describes her qualifications as a prescription drug-pusher this way:
She's also 22, which means she has sex.(Interestingly, Bosworth has struggled with producers to keep her boyfriends off camera, so she's actually the least-sexually active person in the cast.) That's not the only part of Bayer's logic. There's also this:
The Hills 2008 finale drew nearly five million viewers aged 12 to 34.You have to admire the company's logic. The move makes Bayer the most pop-savvy of all the drug companies operating in the U.S. The company previously hooked up with Jonas Brother Nick Jonas for its diabetes brands. The strategy is interestingly risky for Bayer. Hollywood celebs have a habit of getting pregnant just for the publicity. Which would be disastrous for Yaz.
