Is Model T.V. a Good Role Model?
A new reality television show is going to be showing the modeling industry,
but some are objecting to this stle of show giving teenage females unrealistic
expectations and making them feel like something is "wrong" with them. The
new show, Model T.V. is coming up soon and one will see how well it turns
out. There have been other shows like America's Next Top Model and I Want to
be a Model, hosted by Nikki Taylor. People in the industry are trying to make
the public more aware of issues such as weight by doing a French public service
announcement with an anorexic model. They have also tightened age and weight
requirements due to the death of a Brazilian model.
