The number 13 may be considered unlucky to some…but for aspiring short models, it may just be a blessing.
For the first time in America’s Next Top Model history, Tyra Banks announces that girls must be 5’7″ and under to qualify for cycle 13 of the hit reality show.
Typically, ANTM requires that contestants meet a minimum height requirement of 5’7” – matching the industry standard. But next time around, Tyra is searching for shorties, ages 18 to 27, of diverse backgrounds, shapes and sizes.
“There have been top supermodels in the past that weren’t as tall as the industry demands, like fashion icon Kate Moss,” said Tyra. “So we are changing up Top Model for cycle 13 and making it a year for the shorter model!”
