Britain is airing a brand new model search reality show in July, specifically looking for models with disabilities. On a awful creative note, it’ll be called Britain’s Missing Top Model. They get no w00t from me for that lame show name.
Here’s the show’s tagline:
Eight young disabled women discover what it takes to be a model – but which of them will win a photo shoot and appear in a top fashion magazine?
Is this a marketing ploy? Is it a serious competition? My Brit friends will have to share their opinion with me after it airs, because unfortunately it’s damn near impossible to get BBC Three in Minnesota, unless you’e Stanley Hubbard.
Oh, and there’s one American on the show too. Her name is Jenny and she’s 22!
PS. I do give the show props for shedding light on the disparity of able-bodied vs. disabled models in the media though. Ok, that deserves a w00t…..”w00t.”
