America's Next Top Shorty?
Tyra Banks is trying something new and doing away with the minimum height requirement for models (5'9 without shoes). Because for applicants to Cycle 13 of America's Next Top Model, the show is putting in place a MAXIMUM height requirement on its contestants: a whopping 5 feet, 7 inches.
“There have been top supermodels in the past that weren’t as tall as the industry demands, like fashion icon Kate Moss (height 5'6 and a half),” said Tyra Banks in a press release announcing the casting call. “So we are changing up ‘Top Model’ for cycle 13 and making it a year for the shorter model!” Wow.
