Casting calls in Atlanta for “America’s Next Top Model” and “Next Food Network Star”

Reality shows are insatiable beasts, always hungering for fresh red meat.

Two shows are coming to Atlanta soon. “The Next Food Network Star,” which cast Atlanta personal chef Jamika Pessoa in the last season, is back in town for the 2010 season on Monday, August 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Given that time frame, the expectation is you don’t have a regular 9 to 5 job or can take a day off.

And it’s going to the same place “American Idol” was just at this past Sunday and Monday: the W Hotel, 188 14th St.

Interested candidates unable to attend an open casting call may submit a three-minute audition video explaining why he or she should be Food Network’s newest star. For applications, contest rules, and submission instructions simply visit

The CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” is on Saturday from 10 to 3 p.m. at the Westin Peachtree Plaza downtown at 210 Peachtree St.

Casting directors are looking for females, ages 18 to 27, of diverse backgrounds, shapes, sizes and with a minimum height requirement of 5’7” tall. This appears to be for the spring cycle, the 14th. Yes, 14!

Tyra Banks and the star judges won’t be around. It will just be casting producers seeking interesting, attractive women who pop on camera. Good luck!

(This upcoming already taped season is for women 5′6” or shorter.)

As a little girl, I use to get my mom hair extentions to longer the length of of my hair and eyelashes and do the catwalk. I guess I use to be a model in my previous life, cause now I’m 27. I’m still hot, Look about 18. But I will still do what I have to do if I could be america’s next top model! I wil make a whole lot of positive changes in this world!!
