Hotties? Models? America's Next Top Model has been crap for a long time. The first season was amazing but now it's just a bunch of freaks. Everyone has to "represent" something; no one can just be attractive. And god forbid if anyone acts professionally. They wouldn't get cast because they'd be considered too boring.
That is one of the most bizarre and sad things I have ever read. So much is implied about the lives of those people. I wish there had been a good documentary filmmaker on the scene.
Now we know why women under 5'7" are excluded. The shorter they come, the more feisty they get. "Hottie" must be an adjective used to describe overlooked short people. The best advice for single short people is to become educated and skilled first and sexual display dolls second. Of course the short ones can stand up in root cellars and use up less room wherever they go.
Hdhouse...LOL, did the short legged run faster and duck the mob better? Their survival also depended on NYCPD interference, so this is not purely natural. But I put my money on short muscular redheads as the fittest in any riot.
Things only got worse when the dolled-up ladies…strutting strumpets, skinny skanks, creped cankles, bosomed bombshells, painted primpers, primped up posers? No more women were allowed to audition after the stampede…Um, is that why they call these events cattle calls?"I'm 5-foot-3. There's no way I can make it into a model agency," McCarthy said. "They would turn me away at the door. We had an opportunity and it was taken away from us."I am sure that the new government has a bailout plan for you. I would also bet that the new Attorney General will find a way to sue on your behalf or the Department of Labor will get involved. No one should be discriminated against and denied their right to traipse and sashay across the runway in skimpy clothes because of their height! Woman should be judged on the content of their character, not the absence of their altitutde. This is 2009!!! We are making history and legacies. She will overcome!!!!!
Pamplona has the running of the bulls. NYC has the stampede of the skanks.
That’s pretty much what a food riot looks like except the young mothers aren’t usually so well-dressed.
Finally! Real curves.
Man, more silicone in that crowd than is used on the Space Shuttle.
Red in tooth and claw........and toenails and fingernails.
Ah, the time-honored tradition of terse alliteration.
What a profound disappointment.Something is definitely askew when we have to go to the "monkeys are flossing" post for "breasts" and, well, the Next Top Model post for this,Scores of aspiring models slept overnight outside the Park Central Hotel...Tensions quickly boiled over. "I had to pee in a cup and change my clothes in the street," said Mona Knight, 18, of the Bronx, who slept on the street."Hotties"? Sounds more like Ho's.
"Hotties"? Sounds more like Ho's.Sleeping on the street and peeing in cups? Homeless Hos?

Careful, David, Professor Althouse is only 5'5" herself.Professor, please tell us you weren't one of the "hotties in heels" caught up in the stampede!
Bad crowd control can prove fatal, like the recent fatality at WalMart. But I guess it's funny if "hotties" are involved.
5'5" is average height for a woman. I don't consider myself short, but you're supposed to be tall to be a model. If you aren't tall, find another line of work. Deal with it.
If you aren't tall, find another line of work. Deal with it.But this is the world of Tyra Banks and you never have to give up your fantasies in Tyra's world. Everyone can be a model. No matter how ludicrous it may seem to a rational person, as long as you play to the prejudices of a target audience.You can expect special behavior, never having to work again, and being the envy of everyone you know, because there are no consequences. Cause and effect dissipate. Dreams become reality. Years and years of ignoring the world and being selfish pay off big time.You are like God when you win and no one can ever take that away.That's what all these women believe. Deal with that.
My cousin the elf went with her friend to try out. She knew she was way too short but she went with her friend who definitely has a chance because she is tall, thin and insane.
Any chance of steel cage death matches for model wannabes? That would attract my viewership.

5'5" is not short. My grandfather was 5'3." He did not think he was short. I am 5'10" (or was, before the shrinkage began.) I have three stepdaughters each 6'0' in their bare feet. So I can deal with short. (One of the steps is a model in NY. At a wedding recently, one of the groomsmen said "I can't stand to look at her. She's too beautiful." But in her peep group she's probably just high average. She gets work because she has a agreeable personality and is easy to work with. Something overlooked by some of the women in that line.)
Query: should a man marry/date a woman taller than him? I have never tried it. Equal height is OK, but my feeling is that a woman wants a man big enough to match her height or be taller. Of course most of my lifetime of experiences is not relevant to today's youth culture. IMO every height of woman I know is beautiful in her own proportions. And once the conversation begins everyone will surprise you. Grace and courage and intelligence is a beauty all its own that no body type can ruin or make up for its lack.

If I ever decide that my dating life is worth turning into a Bridget-Jones style memoir, "dumped for being too tall" is definitely making it in there.
