ANTM asks for shorties - it's about time!

During the premiere of the 12th season of Top Model, Tyra advertised that they are looking for shorties for the 13th season! If you are 5'7" and under - they want YOU. I'm 5'4.5" so I have always been frustrated with the idea that tall girls were always the stars of the show and short girls were considered less appealing just because they were shorter. So what do you think? Do models have to be 5'9 or do short women look just as beautiful? Personally I get tired of tall models in clothing magazines because they usually have way longer torsos than me so the clothes never look the same on them as they do on someone shorter. Shorter girls have different measurements - so it would be nice to see more short girls mixed in with the tall girls in magazines.

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to watch the show last night so I'll have to catch it later on. I'm glad the shorties are getting a chance finally. I'm only about 5'2. Kate Moss is a short model and look how successful she's been! I guess we'll see how successful the winner becomes, I don't ever see the previous season's winners anywhere though.

omg. it's about time! xD I wanted to be on that show soooo bad like a year ago. But when I saw you the height requirement, I was like F it. I haven't really followed ANTM recently, but it just looks like it's getting boring.
