Top Model lesson: “Never try to take a model’s cake, or as she calls it, supper.”
Shifting focus from the Presidential election for a moment, NPR’s Day to Day reports on the “race that may be equally important to the nation.” That contest is the one taking place on UPN called America’s Next Top Model 3, and former Daily Show reporter Brian Unger uses clips from the show to learn about the life of a model. (Link bonus: Since this is radio, there’s no reading involved.) He says, “It’s a tough job, say, being photographed on a beach. These models know that. … No, it’s not about just getting up on the coral and smiling. It’s about preparation. They have to watch what they don’t eat, they have to learn how to walk, and above all, they have to practice, practice, practice their facial expressions, sometimes for hours in a mirror—with a coach. The most important facial expression to control: the angry face.” He also learns important lessons from the show: “Never try to take a model’s cake, or as she calls it, supper.”
+ plus: Magdalena: “I just wasn’t great TV.”
