The producers of Extreme Makeover are looking to do a show on the lives of plus size models.. not makeovers - thank goodness!

Models will be followed to castings and living life as a model. There will also be a pageant...

Models must be able to meet with casting directors next week.

This is what the producers are looking for:

I'm looking for single (engaged is okay) models (signed and aspiring) from age 25-35 who live in the tri-state area (Manhattan and the five boroughs are the most ideal but NJ, Long Island and CT are also welcome). Must be willing to meet for a casting next week.

The contact person is Chamein Canton.
All interested applicants should contact Chamein at with a jpeg photo and a phone number (home & mobile).

Emails will be accepted from February 6th through February 12th, 2009.

Just a few tips from The Runway Diva ladies.....
  • Send your photo in the FORMAT THEY ASKED FOR (jpeg) and rotate it to the proper angle BEFORE you send it.
  • If you get called in for an audition....arrive ON TIME and make sure you show up LOOKING LIKE A MODEL.
  • Make sure you bring your composite card and/or portfolio with you.
  • Should a producer ask you why they should pick prepared to answer...and make it a good and interesting answer (you can actually start thinking about THIS ONE NOW!!)....remember the goal is to keep their attention.
  • Remember that if you come across boring during your interview, you'll come across boring to the producers and on television and you will NOT be chosen. (Boring TV = Bad Ratings) Maintain a high level of energy throughout your interview...this would NOT be a good time to be shy, tired or to hold back....go for it like YOU WANT THE JOB!!!
  • You only get one chance to make a first impression - Make absolutely SURE you make it a GOOD One!!!
Good Luck To You All!!
