    Tyra Adds Plus-size Model Wannabe To Reality Show.

    IT'S ABOUT TIME THAT BIG GIRLS REPRESENT.

    TYRA BANKS is hoping to challenge America's idea of true beauty by including a plus-size model wannabe in the new season of her hit reality TV show.

    The supermodel-turned-TV producer has picked 180lb beauty TOCCARA among the contestants for the third season of the AMERICA's NEXT TOP MODEL show, which she created.

    She says, "Diversity is really important for me on the show. I don't want to have a token black girl, or a token this or that. It is important for me to have a wide variety of ethnicities.

    "As far as their backgrounds, I love the girl who hardly finished high school and the girl who is an Ivy League student right now. It is a nice cross-section of America."

    Toccara, a former stripper, hopes to become the first "plus-sized super model."

    Banks adds, "The fashion industry has certain standards - there is a certain height and there is a certain body type that will work in this industry, and there is a certain type that won't work in this industry.

    "I can't change that. I don't have that much power, but I do have the power to bend the rules a little bit, maybe get a girl in there who is a little heavier in the hips."

    If you're going to make it as a plus-sized super model, you'd better be freakin' gorgeous, and I don't think she is. She looks like she could be working in my office or something--not a model type IMO.

    Beautiful face
    Beautiful skin
    Unfortunate outfit
    Unlikely to win as she is "real" plus-size, not "fashion industry" plus size. I don't think she could do high fashion.

    No, of course not. As far as I know, plus size couture doesn't even exist.

    It's important to note that the plus size industry is almost totally distinct from the straight size. (So, in a way, she isn't truly competing against the other girls.) Supposing she won, I think she would do fine in her particular market. I'm not a huge fan of her face, but I like how she holds herself.

    Plus size models usually wear from a size 10 to a size 16, but sizes 8, 18 and 20 are also accepted. I can't make a guess as to her size, but I'm pretty sure she fits somewhere within that range.

    For reference: Emme is 5' 11" and 200 pounds; Mia Tyler is 5' 7 1/2" and 145 pounds.

    I'm just glad that this time around the token plus size girl is finally (A) big enough (B) proportional (C) tall enough (D) not severely handicapped in some way, at least as far as I can tell.

    Unfortunately, that's true. Most of the plus-size girls super models are ridiculously beautiful. Here are my plus-size faves:

    Kate Dillon



    Mia Tyler (yep, Liv's sister)



    Sophie Dahl (she's lost a lot of weight though, and doesn't look half as good as she used to. A reminder that not everyone is designed to look their best skinny.)
