I am a model and a vegetarian. I am very active because for me, that's fun. I dance, run, sing, and play with my dog, mainly. I am a size zero, really slightly smaller. But, that's just natural for me. Any one who knows me can tell you that I DO NOT have an eating disorder. I feel like with this new trend, people who naturally do "fit the bill" are being attacked. I would love different body types to be featured equally. But, this is natural for some people. I started asan actress then a mag wanted to use me and I loved it. So, I never tried to be a model. Stop attacking us and start embracing our willingness to embrace different body types.

I have a patent pending on a new product that you and every other women will love me for. High Pheels, pronounced High Peels, was born at 1:15am March 1, 2012 because my girlfriend made a comment about how her friend had an entire suitcase dedicated to shoes when traveling. I created an interchangeable shoe covering that fits with high heels that not only increases the comfort of the shoe, but can be made to match ANY outfit or accessory. This picture is of the same shoes, the one on the right has High Pheels on, and it slips on and off within 30 seconds without modifying the shoe (http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b48/anthonycicc/1333590093.jpg). Please contact me if you would like to know more of the benefits of High Pheels. Anthony Ciccarelli 3613318731 firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Shai Rene Wagner I am 15 years old and my dream is to be a model. I am told all the time from random people how beautiful I am and that I should be modeling but whenever I go to interviews for modeling they tell me that id be a great model and then they tell me how much it will cost and I know that if the agencies really want you then you shouldn't have to pay anything. I was wondering if there was any way you could help me make my dream come true by helping me out? My email: email@example.com
I have watched your show a few times and I find it entertaining yet enlightening. I have watched America's Next Top Model, Every season, about 5 times each at least. My grandmother watches it and she tends to forget she has. So we watch them over and over again. I liked the America's Next Top 'Petite' Model season. I am way below average height, standing at only 5ft even. I am Short, slightly over weight for my height and I have stretch marks from having my son. Yet, I still think I can be beautiful. When I was 16 I was contacted by a modeling agency that some how saw my picture and thought I would make a good model. However, I was 16, having bad self-esteem issues and some other issues as well. I thought it would be cool to try, but my mom would not allow me. I was just wondering why there are not more 'short' women who are models and why can't extremely short women be top models? I can think tall, I have to every time i try to reach something on a tall shelf. lol I would love to see if I could model, but my height and weight issues hold me back. I am currently enrolled in college online, and I saw on your ANTM website that your looking for college students to be on the next season. Do you think there is a chance that a person as short as I am could have a career in modeling? Also, do you have any tips on how I can try to loose weight in a healthy way, tone up and possible get rid of my ugly stretch marks.
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
p.s. I tried to find a way to send you a message through your other site, but i could not.
I'm almost 16 years old.and I've been watching top model for as long as I can remember. I'm in love with your show...and even watching your tips that you tell your models have helped me. My dream was to become a doctor but I realized that's not what I wanted too do. I reeeeeally want too become a model but here's the downfall...I'm only 5'3". I'm too short.when I turn 18 I want too go on your show top model.and it would be absolutely amazing too have another petite season. I don't know if I should give up on my dreams as being a model...I don't want too and I refuse too give up but please tyra help me.
Wow this show makes me want to vomit. This show is basically a copy of Oprah in everyway. I like how the guest stars are usually pathetic people that have been in a couple of movies or bad artists. I also like the way Tyra always cuts off her guests and often yells "Girl oh no you didn't" and the way she makes everything about her. Look if i wanted to watch some whiney rich girl complain i would go watch gossip girl. Tyra also likes to give out crappy gifts like Oprah. "Look heres a free new handbag" i find it sad that people watch this.
there is an estament that 8 million americans have eating disorder and its a growing problem with young girl and boys its also some times ends up in death all to lose weight. so i thought you could help start a clebertiesl agenst eating disorders, maybe if the men and women who every one wants to look like say that you need to starve to be beautiful and they dont need to change might make a diffrence.
im trying to contact you tyra beacuse you care and maybe you can make a differnce.
Inovation, fascination, dramatization, creativity, and love is what I'm all about! My life has been a very interesting one at that! I have been a diver, gymnast, dancer, singer, pianist, and model! Dancing and modeling are my favorites though. Dancing is about showing you emotions in movements, you don't describe your emotions through words, you use your body. Modeling is the same thing! You show how you truely feel through your expressions and features! Tyra, you are and always will be my idol! You captivate the lives and hearts of many people and you are a true inspiration to me! I have watched every season of America's next top model, and I also watch your show! You are a tremendous woman and you are truely captivating! I only have one question though, when are you going to make an " Americas next top male model! " ? I would LOVE to be on that show! Love you Tyra!!!!! Hope you read and love this because I love you!!!
I am a highly motivated, recent college graduate pursuing a career in the media industry. I have spent the past five years dedicating my life to contemporary media and journalism, and I will stop at nothing when it comes to accomplishing the goals and dreams I have set for myself.
Since my graduation I have applied to hundreds of positions in either reporting, spokesperson, modeling, and even behind the scenes work. With lots of good feedback and many potential employers seeing my resume as a promising start to a successful career. My enthusiasm and motivation to make it to the top has only sky rocketed even more.
About a month ago I was doing my nightly job search on the internet when I came across a casting call for a NBA All-Star Week Model/Spokesperson. Immediately I got my info together and sent in my picture and bio. The casting call stated "only one picture per person due to the over whelming amount of applicants" .. Naturally, I thought it was a long shot that I would get chosen, but still optimistic, I eagerly waited a possible chance.
The very next day I received a message stating I had made the final 10 girls for the position and a conference call interview would help them decide if I was the girl for the job. Later that evening I called in to the conference call where about ten other girls gunning for the same position waited to see what this was all about.
We were asked a trivia question about basketball, and told about how the position would include our expense paid trip to Orlando for the entire All-Star week along with a pretty big chunk of change for the position. The moderator, Jason, told us how last years Spokesmodel did such a great job she now works full time for the NBA and that we too could have some career breaks at this highly covered event. He briefly went over minor details of what the week would entail, and proceeded to ask us each to introduce ourselves and tell a little bit about why we think we would be a good fit for the position. All the girls seemed to have a good chance, with a strong resume, but I was confident my background in sports reporting, and being on camera had set me apart from the rest enough to land the position. After all the interviews Jason told us we would find out in the next 48 hours if we were chosen, and 4 girls would be picked total.
Through my total excitement and shock, I still had questions and concerns about what exactly this was all about. I wondered what they would have me wearing, where I would stay, who exactly I would be representing and so on. As much as I wanted to just call and ask all of these questions, I also wanted to make sure I didn't come across to them that I wasn't paying attention or wasn't serious about the position. I decided to text the assistant Latoya after the call and just tell her thanks for the opportunity and gave her the link to my website so they could see some of my work.
The next night, Latoya text me back and informed my that their team loved my website and thought I was a perfect fit. she said my natural ability on camera and my knowledge of sports set me apart from the rest of the applicants.
I soon got a call from Jason, who congratulated me and told me a little bit more about what I would be doing. Also he assured me I would get all of my info and all my questions would be answered when I talked to corporate. He also said to have my modeling agency contact Latoya and she could get the next few things set up. I told him I did not have an agency and asked him what he suggested I do as far as choosing one.
He told me he wasn't really allowed to suggest or prefer specific agencies, however there was a New York modeling agency that I could simply register online to and that would avoid having to find an agency.
After weighing my options and speaking with an agency, I decided paying the 60 dollar fee to register on the "New York Modeling Agency" website since the All-Star week was coming up so quickly. Jason said that would work just fine and to give him my username for the association and he would take care of the rest of the stuff for me.
Over the next week and a half I decided to only tell my closest friends and family about my huge break, since nothing was 100% just yet. My parents urged me to cover all my bases and make sure everything was legitimate before committing to anything. I made many phone calls seeking advice, and also called both Jason and Latoya getting all of my information straight as far as who exactly I would be representing, what I would be wearing, where I would be staying, and when I would find out more info.
They were not always the most informative and helpful when I called, but they always assured me they wanted to help the best they could they were just so busy with all the planning and that I would most definitely hear from "Tayna Dickerson" soon, the "Liaison of the NBA who was handling all the expenses."
As time passed and I continued to have difficulty communication with both Jason and Latoya, I started to have a gut feeling that something wasn't right. I went on the modeling agency website they had me register on and searched through all of the newly added members and found some girls that also were excited about their new All-Star week position. I messaged all of these girls, and learned that they too were waiting to hear more and starting to get frustrated about the lack of communication.
From this point forward I knew something was not right. I called Jason and started asking many questions I thought he should be able to answer easily, he could not.
After some digging and phone calls, I found some reviews online about scams on the internet that sounded HORRIFYINGLY similar to my experience. My heart sank.
All of my hard work and dedication, and all of the time spent and practicing and working on my talent was now not only made a mockery of, but now i'm faced with Identity theft concerns, bank account issues, fraud, the list goes on and on.
After making some calls and reading enough postings, I came to the conclusion that this was in deed - 100% a scam. I called Jason to confront him and just sort of confirm what I had just found. He was completely calm, and tried to act confused when I started questioning him and this entire deal. For a lack of better/ appropriate terms I RIPPED INTO HIM about how sickening it was and how many hopes and dreams he has crushed just to make a quick 60 dollars off all of these innocent girls.
Jason hung up... and since then I have been doing everything in my power to protect myself and to fallow the right steps to get this idiot not only off the internet but arrested for what he did.
What I am here to ask you is to inform all the aspiring artists out there, or anyone for that matter, the dangers of these scams, and just how good they are a becoming professional con artists. I am a smart and motivated individual. I have always been a more cautious person and even somewhat paranoid about anything anyone is ever trying to sell me.
The completely fooled me.
It's embarrassing, disgusting, heart-breaking, and really discouraging.
I think everyone needs to be better informed at how to distinguish who is the real deal and who is just trying to screw you over.
Luckily my dive for success is way too strong for this one bump to stop me from pursuing my dreams. But I do see it as an opportunity to warn anyone else out there with my drive and ambitions to please be careful at who you are working with, and if it doesn't feel right... it probably isn't.
Hi tyra im a big fan of america's top model as well as my 14 year old daughter Amber. I took her to a john robert powers interview over the weekend and they said she has potential but do you think i should pay 2,000 dollars for her to do there classes? Can u please answer mebacki

I don't know how to email you but I really need your help. Back in 2003, after I had my son, I had a breast reduction. Tyra, you can't believe how much this has affected me. I hate to take off my shirt and bra in front of anyone, including my husband of almost three years. The scars and permanent marks that this botched surgery has caused me have lowered my self esteem greatly and makes me feel ugly. Even though I know people can't see through my shirt, but it still feels as if they all know. You are my last chance for any help. Ease contact me through my email, email@example.com. My name is Tabitha Stoner. I'm begging you Tyra, PLEASE help me, please!
I have been told that I should model. Do you think I have what it takes to be a model? I want your honest and professional opinion so I can decide if I should give it a try or continue on with my life. Thank you so much for your time.
I didnt know how to email you. BUT, I think you need to redo that episode of why asian women are trophy wives! I was just not satisfy with their answers its all wrong!!!! LOL if you can reply to me as soon as possible I would be gladly to explain!!
Tyra, i think you should have an episode where you have upcoming designers, entrepeuners, and artists on your show. I was thinking maybe one day you could have a fashion show and have some designers (including myself) on your show so we can show off our work.

I watched the interview with Barack Obama when Tyra talked like a nervous school girl and recounted her meeting him at a party where Kimora Lee embarrassed herself. I suffered though the episode where she put on a "fat suit," I even gave her a couple of points or the show about sterotyping people by their names, but overall I think that she is squandering a great opportunity to be the voice for young women in America - and throughout the world since she is seen in several countries.
Wanting to give her the benefit of the doubt, I went to a taping of the show, I was completely frustrated and unimpressed. Tyra was aloof and acted very strange peeking backstage every time the taping would take a break.
The warm up guy was corny and had to beg the audience to clap and put on fake smiles when the taping started up again. The topic was disjointed and seemed to have no point even though she was trying to be profound. She had to do several takes and what should have been a simple taping was two hour ordeal. I say she needs to stick to modeling and leave the talk shows to the big girls.
But Tyra's talk show sucks. The topics are boring and the most commonly one I hear about is teen sex. My biggest complaint about most of these airhead talkshow hosts is instead of trying to teach teens abstinance till marriage, why not educate them about having protected sex? And some of the things her guests talk about seem a little too exaggerating and far-fetched. Another thing i hate about some of these talk shows along with others is that they seem to bash women who work in sex-oriented businesses, like strippers, porn-stars, etc. and make the topics on those far-fetched, like they can't understand that this is a bad economy and they have to do something to make money to feed their kids (if they have any). Not everyone has the time or money to get an education and get a professional career
I tried, I REALLY tried to get into this show. But... this show is as phony as Tyras' wigs! The humor is sophmoronic and, the shows that would love to be informative, turns out to be extremely superficial and mundane. In the show descriptions, it would appear that I just might learn something from it. Yeah, I do. I learn that Tyra is phony and hasn't ever had a deep thought about herself or anyone else. It's fashion, hair, image and everything else on the outside. Nothing about thinking and caring for anyone else but yourself. So, Tyra, I've changed the channel and so have ALL my friends. Your show isn't anywhere as popular as you think!
