Welcome to The Sims Next Top Model!

Requirements:
Your Sim must be a female Sim of any species, age adult or young adult. You must be able to pose your sims. Maxis-made animations are simply not good enough. I suggest eletrodj's cup of poses at modthesims2. Photoshop is permitted, but will not earn you extra points. Each round will have a varying number of picture requirements, so be sure to check the round requirements. The story must be at least 8 sentences in length.

Rules:
Two entries per person maximum.
Only 14 contestants will be accepted into round one.

Judging:
50 pts per round.
20 pts. - Creativity of pose, background and lighting of Sim.
15 pts. - Beauty of Sim
15 pts. - Creativity of story

Judges:
1. Norikoann
2. alliemarie2323
3. DisastrousOne

EJs:

Hi, I'm Deborah Johnson but you can call me Rah since all my friends do, and I'm sure we're going to become great friends in the near future. I live in the Twin Cities where I work part-time as a model for a local agency and part-time as a dj for the top radio station. I've been doing catalog spreads and local department store ads since I was a small child. I really love the work. I'm hoping this competition will help me expand my horizons along with my career. When I'm not working, I'm either practicing poses in front of my mirror or hiding behind a book. Actually, I'm hiding behind a fashion magazine scanning pics to see what the top models do that I can emulate in my work.
I'm hoping that being on the runway will be a beneficial learning experience that I can use to improve my modelling skills and hopefully, someday, open up my own modelling agency.

Hey all. Well, what is there to say about me? I guess we could start with where I work. I am currently working as a barmaid for my parents. Yes I am a 20 something year old still living with her folks but I'm hoping that will change if my modelling career takes off soon, hopefully this contest will open up a whole new chapter in my life. Please don't judge me as someone I am not though, I am far from your average 'Bitchy would do anything to be famous' girls. For a start I would always prefer to stay in and play games on my computer with a nice glass of wine, to going out clubbing every other night. I also prefer to stay single until the right man comes along for me. The main reason I wanted to be in this contest is to somehow make something more of my life then being stuck in a dead end bar in a small village here in the UK. I just want to do my ma and pa proud as they have been so good to me over the years.

-Application-

Hi, I'm Reese Larsh, some people call me Reeses and yes like a Reeses Peanut butter Cup. I'm 22 years old and live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am a law student at U of M's (University of Michigan's) Law School. I am studying to be in business law. When I'm not at school though, I am trying to get jobs as a model. It really hasn't worked out for me so I'm hoping that this opportunity will help me become the model, that I have always wanted to be. I was severely overweight as a child, in my late teens I started to eat better and exercise. I have finally lost all the weight that I needed to lose to be healthy. Even if I don't make it very far I feel like I have learned that with hard work I can accomplish anything, even if that means just making it through the application round.

Hi! My name is Cinnamon Taylor. I quit school at 17, yeah not my brightest moment. On my journey through life, i've done many things but the one thing that I have been doing that I absolutely love is being a promotion girl. I go to local bars and promote certain alcohol and new types of drinks! I make decent money, but I hunger for more, which is odd because quite frankly i've never been an overachiever at anything! I really would like to finish my education at somepoint. Right now I just need to survive and I'm hoping that this will take me where I want to go. I want to be famous not just known around town but superstar famous. I'm so over not having a place to call my own and I'm so looking foward to never sleeping on a couch again. I'm 21, and live from place to place, currently rooming with a co-worker of mine and she lives Los Angeles, California.

Hi, my name is Abbey Celeste Cast, I just graduated last year and skipped collage. If I had went I would have went for a degree in the Arts.
I moved to the U.S three years ago from Brisbane Australia and currently live in Austin, TX.
Most people think it's odd how an Australian could be so pale as myself, however I like being inside reading or something of that nature.
I work part-time at an aquarium, feeding fish.
Not at all glamorous but we sometimes don't get to choose our jobs. I was blessed to have someone help me get the job, and I'm a hard worker let me tell you.
I'm not a total girly-girl and I'll get my hands dirty for the job.

Konnichiwa, my name is Aya Sato, I am Japanese so please forgive my English. I'm a full time college student, with a degree in Nursing. I want to be a nurse someday because I like to help other people. My mom is my idol, she's a lawyer and she works really hard to serve the right people. I'm testing my luck on modeling to help my family's finances and because my siblings are still in high school. I am the eldest of us 3 children so I know that I must do my best to help my parents. Hopefully, I'll do a good job here and with less mistakes (I can get clumsy sometimes..) So yeah, good luck to me! Arigatou!

Iím Scarlet and Iím 19 years old. I applied for Next Top Model to make something of my life. Iíve always enjoyed posing and being the centre of attention. I currently work as a professional piercer at a tattoo parlour downtown, and while I love it, I know I donít want to be doing it for the rest of my life. I know that I donít have much experience, nor do I look like your typical supermodel. I am a perfectionist to a fault and a quick learner though, so Iím just I will improve as I progress through the competition. My top priority is not to make friends. That said, I do hope that I can become close to some of the other girls in the competition. I definitely wonít be the ruthless bitch whoíll do anything to win.

Hey! My name is much too hard for you Simlings to pronounce, so please call me Sophie Rose. I am 25 years old and I came here from the planet Xorbz on the new long distant space ship that my husband designed and built. On Xorbz a special Viewing Orb, or VO, lets us watch picture shows from a multitude of different planets. The first time I turned on my VO I flipped to the Sims channel, right to The Sims Next Top Model, and instantly fell in love with the show! That is why my husband built the space ship, so that I can be on the show! Even before our relationship, he was always telling me that I could be a model. Also, I have a three year old daughter who is very excited to see her mommy on the VO and I hope I make her proud. Win or lose, I know I will always have my family to go back to.

My profile shot has a different hair style than the other pictures because her hair style in the other two make it really hard to see her face. You can see her nose and chin and that's basically it. However, I did take a profile shot with that hair style, so please tell me if they have to all have the same hair style and I'll switch it.

Hello my name is Yvonne Thours. I am 24 years old and I recently started modeling. I used to be a lifeguard at The Keep (just a big giant beach on the edge of a cove), when I was approached by a few people that told me I should consider modeling. I gave it a shot and so far it's been going very well. I can be shy at times, so you might have to bare with me on that one. Once I open, I can talk your head off. I recently got a divorce and can I say that I am so glad that that part of my life is now over. My ex and I were high school sweethearts and we knew it wouldn't work out, but being the naive kids we were, we said what the hell. Well that didn't get us very far, now did it. I am not yet ready to settle down after that, but in due time.

Everyone's entries look great!

Hm... how to start? With the basics, I suppose.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn175/Hyperion_Rising/anitabody1.jpg

My name is Anita Harjo. I'm twenty three years old and I work as a computer programmer. I'm Creek Native American (I can't stand the term Indian - my best friend is from New Dehli, and we agree that it's incredibly confusing.), and I'm very proud of my heritage.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn175/Hyperion_Rising/Anitaprofile1.jpg

I entered this contest on a dare, but I now intend to go through with it, and to go all the way. Think about it: how many Native American models are there? In a weird way, my winning this competition would be a step forward for my people, a step into the public consciousness. I've got my friends and family behind me, and I intend to win both for them and for myself.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn175/Hyperion_Rising/Anitahead1.jpg


(Fun Fact: I got the last name Harjo from the amazing poet Joy Harjo. Go read this (http://hanksville.org/storytellers/joy/poems/Horses.html) if you're into poetry.)

Whoah!
I just re-read the rules and have a question: Are we getting judged on the background of our ap pics? I just noticed that on the list of judging criteria and don't know if it pertains to applications. I'm so used to modelling contests where you have a solid color (white) background that I put my Sim up against a white wall and floor out of habit.

easypeaze
11th Apr 2009, 8:13 AM
Yeah, I wasn't sure either. All it says is we will be judged on the creativity of the pose, the background, and the lighting of the sim. I'm not sure for the application round, but i'm guessing that the application round has eliminations.

Hello, my name is Kate Dailey and Iím originally from Pennsylvania. I lived a fairly unremarkable life in Pennsylvania, graduated high school and never attended college because it just wasnít my thing. About two years ago I met the love of my life online and moved to Seattle to be with him. It was the most exciting adventure Iíd ever been on and now that weíve settled into our new life I am looking for more excitement. I am currently a barista at one of the many nearby Starbucks, it can be a stressful job but the free coffee is worth it!

Iíve always considered being a model, but until now I never felt like I could actually do it. I've always been a bit unsure of myself until I gave up my life in Pennsylvania and came to Seattle. Once I made that move I knew I was capable of anything. If I become the Sims Next Top Model I plan on using my influence for as many good causes as I can. I consider myself a humanitarian and would not be able to live with myself if I didnít use every resource I could to make the world a better place. I know I sound more like a beauty queen than a model, but I know I have fierceness in me!

BIO

My name's Josephine Douglas, Jo for short, and I'm a physicist and all around tech geek. Hard to believe, I know. I'm currently living in NY with my fiance and adopted daugther, and I plan to get married soon...hopefully, crossing my fingers. Heheh.

I've always been interested in modeling, since people quite often approach me and ask me if I am or if I've ever been a model. I guess it's always been a secret aspiration of mine, now that I think about it. Problem is, I realized I wasn't really going to get anywhere in life, unless I went to college first.

So now I'm out of college and as much as I enjoy bio-nuclear physics, I've really always wondered what it'd be like to rely on my beauty for once, rather than my brains. My fiance doesn't really believe I have to prove myself to anyone that I'm beautiful, since he says it's already pretty evident already. He said he's with me, and that that should be convincing enough.

Ugh, he's so full of himself. Now that I think about, he should of joined this contest instead. Hahahah.

Hey everyone. I'm Jenna Mason and I'm here to win.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn175/Hyperion_Rising/Jennabody1.jpg

I'm from a small town in Michigan where my family owns a grocery store. I'm currently 20 years old and taking a year off from nursing school. For me, winning this contest would be a way to take the financial burden of putting me through school off my parents, who have two other kids to worry about. I'm honestly not sure how far I'd go with a modeling career if - when - I win. I want to contribute something other than fashion glossies to the world, or I wouldn't be training as a nurse. Still, I can't deny the lure of the high life. Not being able to eat wouldn't be much of a plus, but I could live with it for a few years.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn175/Hyperion_Rising/Jennaprofile1.jpg

In any case, I plan to win this thing. I know I have the looks, and as for the rest, I'm a fast learner. Watch out, fashion world: here comes Jenna!

50 pts per round.

Welcome! For this round, we'll need a straight on headshot, profile, and full body shot in casual clothes.
We'll also need at least 8 sentences of a biography!
Thanks for considering The Sims Next Top Model!

There is the official rule that backgrounds are going to be part of the judging.
Now as far as I am concerned (beig the only judge so far) unless I am told otherwise I am not going to be deducting points for a plain white background for the application round. I will be looking mainly at the lighting, posing, and story.

Hello, my name is Nichole Brass. I am a model, but why I am one I have never really thought about. I have modeled since I was born, and another career path never really occurred to me. I suppose that it never really was open to me, either. My mother, Elizabeth Brass, was a famous model too, and my father, Christopher, a famous photographer. My birth was splashed all over the covers of magazines, and I suppose my mother posing with me in her arms for the paparazzi became my first photo shoot. As soon as my mother had recovered from her pregnancy, she continued her modeling career, but this time dragging me along. By the time I was two, she was pregnant again, but still she forced me on. I went to public school through seventh grade, but in eighth grade my parents sent me and my sister, Renea, to a boarding school in California where we were to learn to model professionally. I never went to college, for as soon as my five years in boarding school were up my parents cut their simoleans off from me, and I was forced to earn money the only way I knew how - modeling. I enjoy it now, the photos and the pure joy of posing. But sometimes I wish I'd made the decision by myself. Oh, I'm sure I'd have modeled anyway. But I've always wanted an education. Maybe modeling will help me save up the money to get it. I have a boyfriend too, Jason DuFowl. He's proposed twice now, but I'm not ready to settle down yet. I want a chance to experience life, hopefully without a camera crew at my back.

Bio
Hey my name is Bhavnisha Singh but you can call me Bhav for short, I am 19 and I live in Seattle but I was originally born in London, England. I am of mixed race descent and my parents were very strict, my dad was an alcoholic and one day I couldn't take it anymore so I moved out. I managed to get a job and work my way up until eventually I managed to earn enough money to come and live with my aunt in Seattle. I am the sort of person who works hard for what I want until I get it, I have done some runway work but never anything of this scale and I would love to get the chance to show what I can do on a much bigger scale.

My face tends to get me noticed, I think it's my eyes. I have a really expressive face, my mother once told me that it is impossible for me to hide what I am thinking, but I think I have that under control now.

Profile
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v73/urt31/profile.jpg

I think I have a strong, classical profile and I like that. If I could change any facial feature I would make my nose stick out a bit more, however I love the way my chin sticks out a bit so that makes up for it.

I think this pose was quite simple but still shows off my body well. I love this outfit, it is one of my favourites, it highlights my slightly rock and roll style.

So anyway, I think my time is up, please pick me because I really think I have what it takes!

Ciao! Okay, here I am. As it says above on this application (this manila paper is so nice!) my name is Eve. I haven't ever tried anything like this before but I love having my picture taken. My main reason for trying this is that my Mommy kicked me out a few weeks ago since my job at the local bookstore doesn't help with rent. Sooo, I'm living with my sister Ivy at the moment. I hope this can open me up to new possibilities. Hey, if this works out I could even be famous! I know I'm a teensy weensy eccentric, but I think that will help me stand out!

Shallo, my name is Leila Swan. I suppose I should start off right away with my background, right? I was born in Earth in 3079, or 1987 in Destri years. Yes, I am a human, but from a different branch of humanity that lives above the Earth's crust. I am Normi, the branch of humanity that went to live underground in what the Destri (that would be you) would say was 1092 BC. Our years are counted since we went below, see? A much smarter system I should think.
Oh, and my story. Each family system in the Normi has a different system for celebrating when a child becomes an adult. For us, it is when you turn 17. Every September 30th, all the children in my family system who have turned 17 in the past year must go to Upper Earth, or above the crust. You must spend one year above the crust, and when you return you become a full member of the adult community. However, every year there are some who have chosen to remain on Earth's surface. When my turn came, I was one of those people. You see, the Normi have different standards of beauty than the Destri, and I was considered quite ugly by my family system. When a photographer approached me only my second week on Upper Earth and offered me a modeling contract, I knew what my calling was.
Although I was a bit sad to leave my family behind, I love my life here. After three years here I am happily prospering, and I even have my own apartment which I bought with my very own simoleans. The pictures above are from my very first photo shoot, which I took at a park. We didn't have swings in Lower Earth, so I was fascinated by them and stayed on them, swinging back and forth, for nearly an hour. In fact, I stayed so long that my photo shoot ended with night shots on a picnic blanket. Oh, I had so much fun that day. I still take daily walks in that park, all the better to enjoy the first place I really felt like I belonged.

Jewa - I love the shape of your model's face, but you should probably improve your graphics settings if possible. Also, while I'm not one to go crazy with custom content, having different eyes usually contributes a lot to the look of your model.

Hello, my name is Ara Monroe. Im 23 years old and am currently residing in a small apartment in Toronto, Ontario. I work as a waitress in a small restaurant but my real dream is to be an artist. I love to draw and paint, especially landscapes and sell my art in several galleries around Toronto. About 6 months ago a friend of mine suggested modeling. I thought about it for a little while and decided to try it out. I did a few parts, nothing too big and was surprised by how much fun it was. I've done many small modeling parts since then, but nothing major... until now. About last week my friend told me about The Sims Next Top Model and, again decided to go for it.

Hello, Im Ara Monroe and I think I've got what it takes to be Sims Next Top Model.

I have to get the money so i can support our wedding! Also i am here to see what i got, and give it out at my highest quality!

There is the official rule that backgrounds are going to be part of the judging.
Now as far as I am concerned (beig the only judge so far) unless I am told otherwise I am not going to be deducting points for a plain white background for the application round. I will be looking mainly at the lighting, posing, and story.

Hello, I'm Morgan! I come from a sorta rich family, but, we aren't snobbish! I moved out of my families home about a year ago, and since have been living in a quite little cottage on this island named Trout Harbor. I just turned 21, and I just quit college. I went for two years, but, still couldn't find what they had to offer, and figured that my true passion, modeling, couldn't be filled there. So, now I constantly post picture on this online modeling community while I search newspapers, magazines, and online for a real modeling opportunity. I hope to one day become a world famous model and rolemodel. Not only that, I also hope to eventually have a family of my own, that is after I have fulfilled my dream of traveling the world! If I don't get to continue in this modeling gig, don't worry, it wont kill my dream. I'm a fighter with a hefty bank account! ... Again .... I'm not snobby!

My First contest!

Mena Black
19 years young.I like to think i am one of the nicest people you could ever talk to,i take pride in it.
I see beauty in everything,Light and dark. Looking good makes me feel good.. and why shouldn't it? This does not mean I'm shallow, because appearance can only take you so far. I know I am beautiful, I have confidence and what it comes down to is - I like being who I am. I like a lot of things most girls do not- I don't have to put effort into trying to stand out, I'm just naturally "different". I embrace everything there is about myself, I truly am proud of who I am and what I have become. I am hoping modeling will be another positive movement in my life, I want to be that girl that you see in the magazines and people are like ĎWhoa, I want to be herí.

there keeps being talk of the backgrounds .... Are we suppose to have plain ones, such as white, or is it acceptable to have decorated sets? It's confusing because everyone is doing different stuff, and then there is points being deducted for the background... but I personally don't understand this.

danirawr_SC
12th Apr 2009, 3:03 AM
^ I took it to mean that we are supposed to be creative with the backgrounds but because it wasn't explicitly stated, those who used white backgrounds won't have too many points deducted.

I've reshot my model with a different background and I'm going to upload my new entry in a minute.

clw8, From what I understand, your background should be something other than plain grey or white in order to not be counted off points.

Note: Judges, please don't be too harsh on the people with white or gray backgrounds, since it wasn't explicitly clear before this.

So, don't worry, you're fine!

12th Apr 2009, 3:35 AM
So we will be deducted points if we have a plain background, as opposed to having a decorative background?

I am confused, since earlier you said it the other way around. I guess it's just best for us to know whether you want a plain background or not, 'cause it's obvious that all this talk between the contestants is causing confusion for the other contestants. No offense. I'd just rather I do things right, than wrong...since there's obviously a BIG difference between a plain and decorative background, and I'm sure everybody agrees.

cavilez
12th Apr 2009, 3:43 AM
Well this is confusing. I think that you should just let everyone that has the plain backgrounds have the plain grounds, I mean it's just the application stage. If not then I will be back with a new background.

Should I change the background for the profile and face shot?

OMGnoWAY0752
12th Apr 2009, 3:59 AM

Judging will be different for the app round than for the rest of the rounds. I'll send out the final scorecards to the judges, but it'll probably be on beauty of sim and story.

I have a job at the local movie theater, and get to watch all the free movies I want (Yay me). I was approached by a photographer that wanted to take some pictures of me after we were done he said they were really good and that I should think about modeling professionally. So he asked if he could send my pictures to The Sims Next Top Model. I was flattered and totally amazed that he thought they were that good, so here I am! I'm here to see if i got what it takes to be a top model!

I might not be back on much during the app round after I get off tonight. I've got a book report due on Wednesday and I just got a job, so I'll be pretty busy, but I plan to give the judges 24 hours to judge from when the app round ends, then I'll post the results and give the top 14 24 hours to respond and say that they're in this contest for the long run. I think it's unfair when people who aren't willing to (or simply can't) dedicate time to participate move on to the next round when people who can and will participate fully are cut. I hope I'll have some free time soon in which to check up on the apps and update the contestant list.
Good luck everyone, see you Tuesday (or maybe sooner)!

BIO:

My name's Eleane Boschnovich, but you can call me Ellie for short. I'm 29 years old, and I am originally from the countryside landscapes of Dustwoods. I moved into the city of New Wark to find a job that would keep me alive now that I'm out of college. You see, I studied for about 12 years in college, taking two separate courses (my parents thought that I was overworking myself for doing so). I graduated recently from the Stateside University of New Wark, so there's my college life in short words.

I am, in short words--a geek. I collect comics, box sets of TV shows (some even dating from the 80s), costumes (the one you see me wearing is from a TV show called Days of our Lies)--hard to believe, but yeah, that's my life. My parents were actually glad that I moved out--my stuff was really getting too much space in our house. So don't be surprised to find my apartment crowded with stuff.

My greatest dream is to live the life of the rich and famous--and I hope this contest would help me realize that dream. But be warned--when I enter a competition, don't expect me to act all sweet and stuff. No way, girls--I'm in this to win this.

I have another question. Sorry OMG, I know you must have to check this thread, like, five times a day. Do the body shots have to be poses? Because mine, and I've seen a few others too, our body shots are just in-game pics (in a swing, on a hammock, etc.) that show off our model's full body. Can we do that, or should I change my pic?

Biography
The only daughter of a German mother and Italian father, Greta has yet to see either of the two countries that her parents come from. She had lived in Perth, Australia for her entire life so far. However, at eighteen years of age she is eager to start travelling and is hopeful that something like this may provide that very opportunity. While in her last year of school she started to work in a family run Chocolaterie, and has since remained working there - six months ago she began making the chocolate herself!

While modelling is something she sees as fun, Greta fully intends on keeping her "normal" job and hopes to become a Chocolatier worthy of the people who have been teaching her. She also intends on going to University, but will take a year out - she has her fingers firmly crossed that she will be able to visit the two cities her parents were born in. She speaks three languages so far: English and, of course, German and Italian so that she can converse with both sides of her extended family in their native tongue.

When it comes to Greta's personal life, she lives with her long term boyfriend. Australian born Simon is the son of the couple who hired Greta in the Chocolaterie. Once their financial situation is more stable, they intend on getting married in either Rome, Munich or Queensland - all of whch are cities dear to the couples' hearts. The most difficult choice is...deciding which!

Biography
Hi everyoneÖMy name is Sanne Nijhof. San is how they usually call me. I am a sagittarian and I just turned 20 a few months ago. As you can read my name, I am originally from Holland. Due to work, my parents moved to the States when I was 12 years old. In the begining, it was difficult for me to adjust myself because in Europe, we have totally different language and different culture. However, as the time went by, I managed to adapt myself to the new surroundings and it turned out fine. I still miss my grandma in Holland though, sniff sniff... We are very close and I love her so much. Almost every Christmas, my parents and I will travel back to Amsterdam just to be with the family and relatives. Itís always nice to see them again. Iím the only child in my family, although I would love to have a big brother. I love doing lots of fun things such as shopping, dancing, sport, music, painting, cooking and stuffs like that. If I have the time and money, I would also love to travel around the globe, especially to the eastern part of the world. Iím adventurous, fun, loving, caring and full of surprises
Iím living on my own right nowÖwell, actually Iím sharing a small apartment with my best male friend. We split the rent and do the shopping together but we still have our privacy. I work 4 days a week as a hairstylist at a local hair salon. Itís just a few blocks away from where I live. I would love to have a dog pet but Iím not so sure if my friend would like that. Heís more of a cat person. Anyhow, at certain point in my life, I did consider doing modelling but unfortunatey, I never had the guts to make the first step because Iíve always thought that I wasnít modelesque enough for the modelling industry. But then again a lot of people say that I have what it takes to be a model and that I should try modelling. Well, guess what ? I think theyíre right because I still have the passion for it and I do have the drive to be a model. Iíve always wanted to do it and I guess itís high time to realize it. Right Tyra ? ( I mean OMGnoWAY0752 ??? )
Joining Next Top Model is definately a big challenge for me and I will give my 100% commitment to it. Who knows...this might be the turning point in my life.

Hi, my names Anastasia. I was born in Russia, St. Petersburg in 1986, (work out the age ;)), and that's pretty much it...in fact, there's really nothing much interesting about me. I wasn't taken away from my family, no-one died, we weren't poor. We were a very average family, living in a very average part of the city, and although I loved St. Petersburg dearly, I knew it like the back of my hand by the time I was 15. I was a city girl, but I'd seen all there was to see in St. Petersburg, and that's a lot. So I considered moving out to England, as I'd always been fascinated with the English Culture. When I turned 17. I left my parents, one of my better decisions in life, and went to live in England.

Since I've been here in England, I've (obviously) learned the English language, and I must say, I think I'm pretty good at it. What can I say, I learn quickly. But the money my parents had given me was diminishing, and I needed a job. I tried out EVERYWHERE, but for some reason, no-one hired me. Every where I went, I just wasn't right. I finally got a job though, at a local Fish&Chippy, just down from where I live. It doesn't rake in the cash, but I get enough.

Of course, I love it here. So, SO much. But I think there's more to life sometimes, and I got a feeling I had so much in me waiting to escape, that I signed up for this competition. See, I've always been pretty in-your-face, but I've never really had a chance to show it. Maybe entering this will let my inner model self escape.

Oh, and P.S....My ears are random. Apparently, my great great blah blah blah had them, and passed them down to me. I'm no elf or anything, it's just a genetic glitch. But I love them, they make me unique.


Did I do anything wrong? It's my first real contest :).

I'm Alicia 'Leesh' Rodriquez...but call me Leesh, I like it so much better than Alicia. I'm 24 years old, and I live with my daughter in a tiny little cottage in Dallas Texas (not actually a cottage, but I call it that). I'm doing this for my daughter, and the money to get out of the cottage, since I do not want my daughter living there her whole life. Also, I want to do this so I can get enough money to continue my education, so if I don't succeed in modelling I have something to back me up. If I don't win, OK then. Don't feel sorry for me, I'm a fighter and I aim for my dreams, no matter what the obstacles are. The sky's the limit for me, and I am not about to give up anytime soon, I'm not a quitter.

I don't know about the first question, but:

- Apps are not being judged on background, since there was some confusion earlier.
-While I don't know the official ruling on this, a general rule of photography is that you don't crop off bits of peoples bodies.

Hello everyone!

My name's Susannah, I'm 21 and I live in Glasgow. At the moment I'm working as a receptionist for an insurance company but I've wanted to model for as long as I can remember, so when my best friend Taylor got me an application form for Next top model, I decided to try my luck! I don't have any past experience but I've always been passionate about modelling and I'm prepared to work hard to prove that I have what it takes to be a model.


http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/431/snapshotd6efa95316efd42.jpg (http://img91.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshotd6efa95316efd42.jpg)


I live with my 16 year old brother Seth and our two cats; Dylan and Poppy. Our parents split up when I was 14 and our mum moved away to live in London. We stayed with our dad in Glasgow and although it hurt that mum had abandoned us like that, we decided to get on with our lives. For five years, we were happy in our new rebuilt lives but then, two years ago, dad became seriously ill with stomach cancer and after an awful nine months of suffering, he died in February last year. Letting him go was the hardest thing we'd ever done and both Seth and I were absolutely distraught but at the same time we knew it was what had to be done. It would have been very cruel to let him suffer any longer. I miss dad every day but I know that he always believed in me and wanted me to follow my dreams, and just knowing that keeps me strong.

So I'm going to pursue modelling and even if I don't make it this time, I'm going to keep trying. After all that has happened to me, I've realised that we all have to chase our dreams and that eventually, if we chase them for long enough they will come true.

Just couldn't stay away :)

I haven't given the judges the score cards yet, so they can't really judge as they come in, but that would've been a really good idea.

To answer some questions that have been asked:
It would really really REALLY be best if you used a posing hack to pose your models, because the poses will be judged for the full body shot.

If english isn't your first language , just tell us in your post. No points will be deducted for grammar problems or spelling, but native english speakers, do try to be correct as possible.

Apps end ten o'clock U.S. Mountain Time (I think it's -7 hours from GMT). I'm posting this at 7:45 P.M. (19:40 military time), so you can do the math I guess.

It would've been best if you showed the model head to toe, but no points will be deducted if you didn't.

Hopefully, you'll get the top 14 results on Wednesday or Thursday.

Question: The model is tanned from the sun, i hope that does not mean anything, when she get her normal color back? I tried to hurry up so i shouldn't miss the deadline. I might change the bodyshot if that is ok, if i get time?

I've had my fill of working in a plastic factory and my fill of skinny women thinking they're Maxis' gift to Simkind. So, I'm here to get out of my redneck rut and show the world what modelling is all about. It's all about big luscious gorgeous women like me!!!! While the rest of them women in this gig are getting blown away by the next breeze, the judges are getting blown away by my beauty. Heck, proportionately, my beauty outranks all of yours ten-to-one. Ha. Take that you skinny-minnies. I got more than you got of everything. And we all know the judges are looking for more: more beauty, more personality, more photogenic-ness, more joy, more emotion, more of me.

"Hey there, my name is Zoey Koster, but you can call me Zo, if you like. I am nineteen years of age. Letís just say I didnít have the nicest or easiest of up-bringings, my father was an alcoholic and my mum died of a drug overdose when I was three. Because my dad wasnít considered a responsible guardian for me and my three siblings we were taken into foster care shortly before my fourth birthday. It wasnít easy being in care though, me and my siblings were all spilt up into different care homes and different families. Finally I moved to the west of England in a cottaged town, with a foster family. The upside of this is that my elderly foster parents are the reason I got into modelling, my foster mum, Andrea was a famous model back when she was my age. Since the age of thirteen she has been helping me aspire to my dream of becoming as successful as her. I currently work as a maid in my familyís bed and breakfast and but I also do some part-time modelling shoots. Hopefully this contest will help me push my dream even further, because Iíd love to finally succeed in something."

If english isn't your first language , just tell us in your post. No points will be deducted for grammar problems or spelling, but native english speakers, do try to be correct as possible.

<b>Apps end ten o'clock U.S. Mountain Time (I think it's -7 hours from GMT). I'm posting this at 7:45 P.M. (19:40 military time), so you can do the math I guess.</b>

It would've been best if you showed the model head to toe, but no points will be deducted if you didn't.

Hopefully, you'll get the top 14 results on Wednesday or Thursday.

The apps have not ended yet.

Bio: Hi I'm Sugar I was born on the Island of Tobago I came to America when I was 16, being uprooted from my home was hard for me and the transition to a new culture was rough to say the least, I finaly adjusted and feel like I belong now, it has always been a dream of mine to become a modelo and I'm hoping that this contest will help me realize that dream.

hey, can someone make a post saying "APPS OVER" as soon as they are? That way there's no confusion...

Okay, guys, I am -finally- finished with my scores. It took me nearly 2 hours to get it all done! Because of this, I didn't comment on any of the apps, however, if you would like to know any of my reasons feel free to ask. ;)


& Just a reminder: If you don't make it through, don't feel hurt or take it personally. A whopping 20 people are getting cut, while only 14 are going to actually make it. Therefore, it's not that big of a deal. You all did so very well, so you should feel very proud of yourselves regardless!


Anyways, I'm going to stop rambling on now. Good luck to each and every one of you! :D

lilliandulciaa

I'm still waiting for DisastrousOne to send me her scores.
She asked me when the deadline for sending in the scores was and I was all nice and like "whenever you can, I know it'll take awhile, but tonight is prefferable."
So hopefully i'll have them soon and be able to tally it all up. But lemme tell ya, it's gonna be close I think.

Nope. I must tally. When I post the scores, they will be combined scores and who gave what scores will not be revealed. But it'll be super easy to tally the scores.
