Tyra Banks Hosts Online Model Search
Banks is inviting aspiring models to skip the lines -- and any potential Top Model madness -- and audition for the show online. In a post on Tyra.com, the executive producer of ANTM addresses "My Fierce Ladies" and says, "This is a chance for you to be seen by ME! Forget about those long lines, and just send 'em right here. I will be looking at ALL of your pictures and choosing the girl that’s going to fly to California to be on Top Model! I wanna see all of you! From the Fiercely Real (ya know, plus sized) to the 'straight' (skinny) models, just doin' your thang."
Women who are 18 to 27-years-old and are 5'7" or taller can send four photos of themselves in a swimsuit to be considered for that final spot on the show. And even if you don't make it to the Top, Banks promises to feature winning photos on her site.
