That's so cool! Haha I'm 5'6 as well and I always think "oh no, there's no hope for me" (even though my nickname should be skeletor...I am very thin).

I spend most of my time in DC at school and there are no scouts around (not that I would expect to be scouted if there were), but when I went shopping for a weekend in NYC last winter I was scouted...sort of. The scout was very nice and all and then she was like "so, how tall are you exactly?" because I had on heels...but with my pants you couldn't see how tall the heels were...and I was like "5'6" and she was like..."oh..."

Kind of embarassing. I'm sure she was a bit tired...I mean I would think most scouts would look at your feet before approaching you since height is such an issue. No?

I was scouted by an agent, while I was spending my holiday in London, but when she realised, I'm from another country she hasn't interested any more, so finally she just wished me happy holiday.:p

Last year actually, in Pacific Place in Hong Kong. But my mom said 'no' as she was scared of scary rapists and such, since a girl in the newspapers thought she was getting "scouted" ended up getting kidnapped and then, ambused and raped...

Sorry to sadden the thread.

I was scouted on a vacation in NYC when my dad and I were browsing the street art vending booths in Soho. I live hundreds of miles away but most of all finishing high school is something that is imperative for me because I want a good future so I had to turn down the offer. I was also scouted on Myspace, too. Of all places...

My ex (loooooong story, very long - on and off for six years, very long story, haha) was scouted several times. But, he has kids, and didn't ever want to get into a life where they would live less than normally, so he never went after it.

I wish I had a picture of him & I together, he looked a bit like Gale Harold ("Brian" from Queer as Folk) with Ryan Phillippe's lips. Delicious.

The woman that scouted me on Myspace is the same lady that scouted the Supreme Management model named Amber Milam, but I weaseled my way out of it anyways. I just don't think modeling is something I want to pursue.

I was scouted once at Venice Beach, CA I so regret not showing up argh! she gave me this card that had the address and website to some modeling agency I dont even remember what it was cause it was like 4 years ago. She also gave me her number on the back. She said shes been watching me and I noticed it too i was thinking like "what is her problem!" before I even knew she was scouting me haha

I just didnt think I was good enough I had such a low self esteem back then. If only I took that chance I probably would have been in some magazine ads or something. Oh well...

I was scouted once when I was 12 in West Edmonton Mall. My parents wouldn't let me do it and stuff and then when I was 13 they found me again in a different mall. I was thinking I'd be allowed btu I wasn't and then they kept calling me asking if I could go in a model search that they were holding and I was allowed to do that becasue my parents thought that that would be the end of it but I won 3rd place so that is cool. That was Mode Models. I am now signed with them
