'America's Next Top Model' Wants Shorter Women For Thirteenth Season

'America's Next Top Model' has announced that it is dropping the requirement that models be 5-foot-7 and taller for the show's 13th season.

In fact, don't bother applying if you're any taller as the casting call states that contestants must be 5-foot-7 and shorter and between the ages of 18 to 27.

"There have been top supermodels in the past that weren't as tall as the industry demands, like fashion icon Kate Moss," host Tyra Banks says in a release. "So we are changing up 'Top Model' for cycle 13 and making it a year for the shorter model!"

The show will make casting stops in Miami, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., New York, Dallas, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The thirteenth season will likely air early this fall.

None of the eleven existing 'America's Next Top Model' winners have set the modeling world on fire so it's no surprise that Tyra Banks is once again looking to try something new. Because casting its first transgender contestant last year certainly didn't do the trick.
