Answering a Reader Question #152
Glad that someone is strong enough to spill the beans and be so helpfull! I've been trying the modeling thing since i was 13 i am now 19 and highly considering auditioning for cycle 18 in 2 days! all paperwork is filled out but any advice for the audition or tips?
Hi, Rayne! Glad that my post about ANTM has been helpful for you! Really the only advice I can give you about attending the casting call is to be prepared for the cattle call. There are going to be so many girls there acting crazy and like they have no upbringing because there will be media there. It's okay to be excited but don't go overboard with your enthusiasm lol.
Dress like you would as if you were going to a traditional casting call for a modeling agency. There is no need to wear outlandish outfits or be a total brand-whore by dressing from head to toe in some fancy designer threads. Keep it simple: dark skinnies, high heels and a form fitting tank top or t-shirt. Minimal makeup and pull your hair back into a ponytail so they can see your face/bone structure.
Everything is going to be done in a huge group so you don't really have to worry about anything one-on-one. Just make sure you pay attention to their instructions when you go inside the room to face the first round of panel judges (Tyra and people from ANTM will not be there...you'll be dealing with regular production people for the show). Be patient and prepared to wait around. Bring a book or something to occupy you in the meantime. Have fun, make friends and I'm sure you'll do great!!! Good luck!
