How much does Ann Ward weigh anyway? Controversy continues to swirl today over “America’s Next Top Model” cycle 15 winner Ward, the 18-year-old with the waist so small she makes Calista Flockhart look fat. Tyra Banks was criticized at the beginning of the season for praising that waist – what if young girls began starving themselves to try to attain this standard of beauty?
There’s been speculation that Ward weighs less than 100 pounds, which cannot be healthy considering she stands 6 feet 2 inches tall. I do not know, nor does anyone else, if she has an eating disorder. I hope she does not, but we all know how rampant that is in modeling.
Does this mean that “ANTM” is glamorizing an unhealthy and unsafe ideal for the many teens who watch this show? What do you think?
