MORE ANTM CONTROVERSIES
THE PLUS SIZE IS A FAKE!?

Remember when last year I wrote about Cycle Ten Saleisha previously knowing Tyty from her T-Zone camp (Modelling on the Tyra show too) and being asked to audition only to end up winning? Well According to Rich from Four Four, Whitney was approached by someone from the show while on a plane, she never even auditioned and had been modelling as a size 4. They told her that a size 4 was too big for the show, but that if she gained 10-20 pounds she could definitely make it as a plus size. I guess all those stories about how she was teased in school for being 'Fat' were possibly not true?

NOW THIS PICTURE MAKES SENSE TO ME....





ANTM EXTRAS

wow i can't believe that is true!! i haven't watched this season, but i've seen news come out about how the winner was fake and planned to be one who was "full figured" girl just to bring more media attention to the already falling ratings.

That's terrible, so it was all a bit of a set up?

I'm pretty blown away that a size 4 was considered "too big," and that adding 10-20 pounds to a size-4 frame makes a person a plus size. That makes me a plus size. I'm 5'8", and I weigh 133.

I saw the finale and actually shed a few tears listening to Whitney whine about her childhood bullies. And I felt so much better that a plus size won.
And then I read Rich/fourfour's post and I seriously felt cheated. How sad.
I still keep hoping that perhaps she is naturally curvy and she had tried to starve herself to make it into modelling, a la Lily Cole who is now way sexier with her curves.

ANTM is a Farce. I mean its pretty obvious that it always was, which is why its such good TV. But why pretend to be really representing the real world of modeling if your just going to stage everything like one of your overly dramatic "issues" or "serious" segments on your talk show, Tyra?
Plus Whitney gained weight throughout the show,and you can tell because at the beginning she was definitely not plus size, and you can even argue that she isn't really now.
Watch Australia's Next Top Model, its sooo much better.
