Umm before you decide to write something like this, maybe you should get the facts straight. Kim was from Worcester, MA, not Worcester, NY.

Strip off all the glamour and modeling is selling products. High fashion or Walmart, you are still trying to get people to buy things. Obviously if you have a passion for the product, thats great, but even if you don't, you still have to sell it because it's a job.

I would think that if you aspire to be on that show then you would already have an interest in the fashion world however I can see the other side of the argument. I'm a jazz singer. I know a lot about Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald but not so much about the intrumental side. If I was expected to know everything about jazz just because I happen to enjoy singing it then I would do so well. I can understand why some of these girls may just enjoy the process of modeling and could care less about the ins and outs of the fashion universe.

stop the masshole hating - she barely had an accent, I was actually shocked to find out that she was from Worcester, I'm from MA and she didnt sound very Worcester to me. But honestly how she sounds is totally beside the point, I do agree that it had to be staged, how would she get to that level of screening without really being passionate about competing, and the "extra" person just did not add up.

It really annoyed me when Kim walked off, she had the opportunity of a life time and just threw it away because she did not wear high fashion clothes. ANTM is not the same it use to be

I don't get all the Massachusetts hate! Especially Morgs?? Masshole is totally inappropriate. I agree that it seemed faked. Just too convient (bella) that there was an extra girl, and then two were automatically gone in the first episode. I might've missed it, but did anyone say/think Kim sort of looks like Reese Whitherspoon?

Kim's whole distaste for the fashion industry stemmed from her not wanting to use her face and body to convince people to pay obscene amounts of money on clothing and luxury goods. She didn't believe in it, so she wanted to leave. I don't think it has anything to do with living and breathing fashion, but if a contestant doesn't believe in paying tons of money for things and her prospective profession revolves around that, then that's a different story.

I don't believe many models actively follow fashion beyond what is needed for their work (knowledge of houses and designers). Too simplistic of an analogy, but not all bakers love eating cake. They may love the artistry of baking cakes, but not consume so much themselves.

I think ANTM is a joke. If a girl is meant to be a model than let fate discover her not some T.V. show that promises girls to give them lucrative modeling gigs when we all know past contestants have no promising careers.
angelinemarie angelinemarie 7 years
for sure. there are tons of eligible models that actually do have an interest in fashion but seem to not make it over the models have to absolutely no interest. boo.

I'm glad Kim is gone. She is not model material, and oh so annoying to listen too.Side Note: Worcester is in Massachusetts, not New York. Couldn't you hear her annoying Masshole accent??

Definaetly! What's the point in hating fashion when your a model? That's one of the reason's I can't stand the show, the models are always seem like they were pulled right off the farm!

kim's departure was sooo fabricated. but yeah, they should screen the candidates anyway however what if someone had the same views that kim supposedly had and then changed her mind and started to have a huge interest in fashion? should she be penalized for the outlook that she USED to have

I was watching with my daughter and as soon as Kim walked off, I said, "That was so staged!!!!" Frankly, she will probably turn up in some magazine somewhere soon. Tyra & Ms. Jay hardly convinced me of their "shock." And, it just sounded scripted!!! I thought they were all good in the ratings department since I started watching!

For the purposes of the show, maybe. but i cast real models all the time, and i'm telling you a good number of them can't pronounce to designer's name, and look like they have less than 2% of fashion running through their veins. sometimes you get these girls who are bored with fashion and hate the whole idea of it, but when you see your paycheck for just standing and posing, or walking a runway, they don't care. casting doesn't care. the designer doesn't care. most of the time we just want to cast a girl who has the look we are looking for and fit the clothes. other than that, we could care less about the girl.
