This show singlehandedly turned me off of modeling... sad thing is, I genuinely enjoy modeling.

Whilemina is so stupid... from what I understand, they've turned down a lot of girls that are doing great at other agencies. They need to take a page out of the IMG/Ford/Elite handbook and give more girls a chance. That's the only way that they can make money!

Yeah, maybe the reason they're doing so terribly with their womens board is because they're absolutely terrible to their girls

Did you see what they said to that new girl Robyn? Apparently, she is a fat cow who needs to lose ten pounds and stop obsessing over "food." She's a stick.

So I finally watched The Agency while I was working out this morning. I have to agree that the show makes Wilhelmina look bad & unprofessional. I'll probably keep watching it to see how it progresses though.

What I found very sad/ironic was that VH1 aired a PSA about eating disorders affecting young girls immediately after an episode where a modeling agency calls already thin girls "fat cows."

They also gave her a list of agencies which could be intersted in represnting her... So I think this is just this stupid Wilhelmina agency. To be honest if I had them as an agency I would leave them immediately!
Pink is actually kind of mean at open calls, he's very blunt!

Becky is the reason why I watch the show
She' s just too harsh and blunt but I have a feeling that Pink is even worse. The second episode is airing on Sunday over here. Can't wait.

I finally watched it, and yeah, Becky has some personal issues she needs to work through! How do they expect to break their women's board when they treat their girls like sh*t? I mean, "Doughy Chloe"? How immature. They do realize they're running a business right?

Did anyone else realize that Pink is the guy who sent the girls to Paris on the first season of ANTM?
