The line for 'The Face' auditions snaked around the block! One passerby yelled "Is this for a job?" The girls yelled back "Yeah." He asked "On a Sunday?!" and walked away. Fashion never takes a day off, man.
Meet Shanice, a model/professional dancer from Queens who is hoping for a shot on 'The Face.' At 5'11", Shanice has been turned down from multiple music video dance gigs because she was "too tall." (You can't be taller than the main artist!).
Meet Erin, an actress who hails originally from Nebraska. She came to the casting with no modeling experience, and says that her fate during the casting will decide whether she will stick to acting -- or make the move to modeling.
Ashley hails from Delaware and had been waiting at 'The Face' casting for four hours! She was next in line when we caught up with her though. She's been modeling since she was young -- but said she always struggled with self-confidence. What?
Devyn tells 'The Face' auditioners all about her new opportunities since her win -- including runway shows, multiple speaking opportunities and brand ambassadorships for Ulta and United Colors of Fashion.
This Amber Rose lookalike is named Rashidah, and she's studying histology (look it up...it's impressive). Selected for 'Americas Next Top Model' in 2006, she missed her flight from Oklahoma for the filming -- and missed her shot. Now she's back for more.
Tatted Up: Rashidah wants to represent for the models who have body art. "Some agencies or designers don't like tattoos." But she wants to prove that she can get just as far as models who are ink-free.
Mearg "Magi" Tareke hails from D.C. by way of Ethiopia! Her dream is to start a nonprofit to help girls in her hometown in Africa, and the more you model, "the more people will hear you," she says. We wish her luck!
Outside the casting room, lovely Myisha is disappointed that she didn't make it on 'The Face' this time. She learned that she shouldn't worry so much what people think in auditions, and that next time, she should just "let it come."
Sophia hails from Virginia by way of Texas, and is raising a child while working as an auto insurance agent. If there was ever incentive to get into a car accident, people, this Face might be it. (Disclaimer: watch the road)
Pretty Marine hails from New Jersey, and she was adorably nervous as she queued up for the audition room. "I have anxiety," she says. Marine is also a singer/songwriter, much like her sort-of-lookalike, Taylor Swift.
Candidate Heaven Hall looks a LOT like Tyra Banks -- and there are ups and downs to that. The up? Tyra's amazing. The down? "I've had photographers who want to recreate every shoot she's ever done."
