I'm sure by now you have seen the video of the casting call for ANTM over the weekend. Apparently the crowd went nuts and stampeded because they wanted to be first in line to be a model. Or it could have been someone was passing out free samples of a new weight loss pill. Either way, what got to me about the whole mess is that there were a LOT of people at the casting call. Judging from the video, it might not have been American Idol big, but there were way more people than a casting call for say, Paris Hilton's BFF.
Maybe I should start watching ANTM. I have always resisted, because for one you know I dislike Tyra Banks. Anyone who treats her employees as poorly as she does should not be rewarded in life with the opportunity to hire more of them. Second, with the exception of the crazy one who married Peter Brady, have any of them actually been America's Top Model? Even though an Idol winner's career might be very short, they generally do get at least one number one song out of it.
I can't believe that many people showed up to the casting call. Maybe I do need to watch the show this year. Hmmm. See? This little incident is getting me to watch. I wonder if Tyra was behind it. Maybe she dropped a ten dollar bill on the sidewalk and told her employees to fight for it because it was the only bonus they were going to get all year.
