“America’s Top Model” is all the rage.It literally is! Thousands of women showed up to fulfill their dreams of becoming a model.Instead,they got their worst nightmare when the scene of the “Top Model” auditions became the scene of a huge melee.Some of these female warriors would be better off auditioning for the WWF! Getting into a brawl is very unbecoming behavior for a model!Here’s more on that from the Boston Herald:
“A Jamaica Plain teen’s high-fashion dreams became a living nightmare when she was slammed to the ground in a mad stampede of Gisele-wannabes at the New York auditions for “America’s Next Top Model.”
“I started to get really scared when I fell down and the girl in front of me fell down,” Bianca Tsolias, 18, told the Track . “We had a feeling something bad was going to happen.”
The riot outside the Park Central Hotel on Sunday sent six “Top Model” wannabes to the hospital and three people to jail. What sparked the stampede, said Bianca, was a car that backfired and then started smoking.
“One person yelled, ‘Fire!’ and things got really crazy,” said the Mount St. Joseph’s Academy senior. “Two girls fainted and one had a seizure.”
NYC officials said the producers of the CW reality show failed to notify police that they were holding an open casting call that drew an estimated 10,000 crazed would-be catwalk contestants to the Midtown street – some of whom waited in line up to 16 hours.
Police said they didn’t know what set off the melee that left West 55th Street littered with the would-be models’ shoes and clothing.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.
