'America's Next Top Model' Opens Door for Short Models


'America's Next Top Model' Opens Door for Short Models
'America's Next Top Model' implements its latest out-of-the-ordinary rules to become a model by casting those under 5'7.


Entering its 13th cycle, "America's Next Top Model" is continuously seeking a major change. The reality show aired on The CW is casting women under 5 feet 7 inches to join the competition in the next season, opening wider chances for those without the standard height of models.

In the requirements for the Fall 2009 season, which can be found on the official site of The CW, it is emphasized that entrants "must be AT OR UNDER five feet and seven inches (5'7") in height." However, it also puts on highlight that "producers reserve the right to make case-by-case exceptions. Please note the change in this requirement from past cycles of the Series."

"There have been top supermodels in the past that weren't as tall as the industry demands, like fashion icon Kate Moss," said Tyra Banks in a press release. "So we are changing up 'Top Model' for cycle 13 and making it a year for the shorter model!"

Open calls begin on February 28 in Miami, Fla. It then continues throughout March in other cities such as San Franscisco, Washington D.C., New York City, Dallas, Chicago, and Los Angeles.

The show is gearing up for the premiere of its 12th cycle on March 4.
