Tyra Banks, America's Next Top Model
You don't need to be a leggy Glamazon to be a model anymore. For the first time in America's Next Top Model history, Tyra Banks has set her sights on casting the vertically challenged.
Banks announced Monday that Cycle 13 of the reality competition series will only consider applicants 5-feet-7-inches and shorter to participate on the show — which, by modeling-industry standards, is considered bite-size. (What up now, Randy Newman?)
"There have been top supermodels in the past that weren't as tall as the industry demands, like fashion icon Kate Moss," said Banks of the newly voluptuous model. "So we are changing up Top Model for Cycle 13 and making it a year for the shorter model!"
