Answers to the quiz:


1. This is the big one most models dread. Are you under 5'9"? If so score yourself 5 points. If you are 5'9" and taller,


but less than 6'2", then score yourself 5 additional bonus points. Being short does not mean you cannot model. Your

chances to do high fashion runway are out, but there are thousands of modeling jobs you can do even if you are under the modeling agency 5'9" limit! So don't sweat it if you are short.


2. If you hear this often, then give yourself 10 points. If people say that, then you likely have a good model look!


3. If you answered "YES" then give yourself 5 points. The eyes are one of your most important features and counts double in your score as a model. If your eyes are nicely almond shaped, give yourself 5 bonus points!


4. If you answered "YES" to a really nice smile, give yourself 5 points. Do you wear braces? If you do give

yourself 5 bonus points!


First, you are in the process of straightening your teeth. Second, your braces won't be on forever. Braces aren't a problem in the modeling business like it used to be. In fact it can be a bit of a fashion statement depending on the client and the job.


5. Believe it or not your posture is a major part of your overall look. If you don't stand or sit straight, you will lack

potential to become a good model. If you answered "YES", then score yourself 5 points. If you have the ability to arch

your back in a reverse curve, score yourself 5 bonus points.


6. Clients love to work with people who have a great personality. If you are friendly, out- going and not afraid to talk,

score yourself 5 points! If you are the type of person who never met a stranger and can talk to just about anyone, score
