Whitney Thomson became the first plus-sized winner of “America’s Next Top Model” last night. It was pretty obvious. TyTy planned this shit from the beginning. She hatched out this plan over a steak dinner at “Houston’s.” Seriously, TyTy mentioned Houston’s last night and it got me excited for some reason.
Rich from FourFour has some interesting info on how Whitney got on the show. A source told him that Whitney never auditioned for the show. She was approached by someone from the show. That’s nothing new. I think many of the show’s skanks were approached instead of auditioning for the show.
The source said at the time, Whitney was already modeling as a size 2 or 4. The person from the show told her size 4 was a little too big to compete as a regular model on the show. They told her if she gained around 10-20 pounds they would put her on the show as a plus-sized model. FourFour has some pictures of a much skinnier Whitney. Through the entire season, Whitney cried about how hard it was for her growing up fat or whatever.
Whitney, who is a size 8 or 10, talked to People about how she’s embraced her curves, “Right before I left for the show, one of my best friends said to me, ‘You’re not going to go that far. You’re fat. Every week I would remember her saying that. And every week I was like, ‘In your face!’”
Yes, size 8 is considered “full-figured.”
Anyway, I’m glad Anna Nicole Whitney won.
