Waking up at 4:45 was actually easy. Even when I only had less than an hour of sleep because of the excitement of watching my best friend try out for America's Next Top Model.
I knew that there was going to be tons of people to watch. But it was still surprising every time a new one came up.
There were people that were shorter than 5'7". (Even though the rules specifically prohibited it)
There was a girl in a see-through ball gown.
Two girls in bathing suit tops and jeans.
A few girls that were a little bit too heavy to be considered even a "plus-sized" model.
There was a girl that had blonde hair and about 6 inches of black roots.
And those were only the people that were trying out!
I wasn't able to sit with Jessica in the line, so I found myself a seat next to a nice couple. We ended up saving each others seats if one had to get up to go to the bathroom or run down to target to get something. Which brings me to my next observation:
People are stupid!
If I'm sitting there and there is stuff in the three chairs next to mine ... do you REALLY think that no one else is sitting in those chairs?
I can't even remember how many times I was asked; even by the same people.
I wanted to be like, "No, no one is sitting there ... I just thought that I would make myself at home in this mall and throw everything around like it were my own bedroom." Or "Yes, my three imaginary friends are sitting there."
Jeez people, I think it's pretty obvious. It would be different if nothing was in the chair and people asked ... but jeez!
The casting call was more like a big cattle call.
They would bring in 50 girls at a time and they would have to stand in front of the camera and say their name, age, height, and weight. Then they would pick 2-3 girls out of that entire group (VERY VERY Tall and Thin girls) and then tell the rest of them that they needed to hurry up and get out of the door.
It was a decent experience though. I just wish that they would have actually gotten to know some of the girl's personalities. I don't see how they are going to pick girls that are worth watching if they don't even know how their personality is.
People watching was fun though.
