You Can Choose America's Next Top Model From Eastern Carolina

Aspiring models lined up Saturday in Rocky Mount for their shot at stardom and a chance to be on the CW's networks prime time program.

There was a casting call for America's Next Top model over at the Golden East Crossing mall in Rocky Mount.

The event was co-sponsored by the Rocky Mount Telegram.

Model hopefuls came from as far as Virgina to get their chance at stardom.

The casting call took place from 1 to 5 pm Saturday afternoon and whoever gets chosen will have a chance at the final casting call in Los Angeles.

Many said this was a chance they could not pass up. One even saying she would leave school. Erika Simmons a student at ECU says, "I'm a junior so it would be difficult for me to leave ECU but if i had a chance to be on the show it would be the chance of a lifetime and I would leave ECU for this."

This is the second year in a row this model search has come to our area.

The Rocky Mount Telegram will post the top ten finalist from our area on their website on Sunday.

A spokesperson for the paper says people can log on to their website and cast their vote on who they think should go to the final casting call in Los Angeles.

If you would like to vote on who you think should go then log on to and cast your vote.

    OH MY GOSH. Have you SEEN the pictures of the girls that actually want to do this? It HAS to be a joke. They will NEVER make it on AMTM if they can't even care enough to dress decent and wear makeup at something as amature as this. WOW

    To:SAD, There are a lot of women from NY, and NJ., that live here now. Be kind, some are less ugly than others.

    A good many of the women in Eastern NC are not attractive so this contest is pointless.

    Most of theses girls do not have what it takes. Sad they think they do. Parents need to help their children be realistic and set attainable goals. Reality TV is really unreality!
