'America's Next Top Model' Ditches Its Age Limit

Sick of your job? In need of a career and/or life overhaul? Why not become a supermodel? 

America's Next Top Model, the Tyra Banks-created show that taught a generation of people about smizing and strutting, has officially ditched its age limit.

The show previously was capping contestants at 27, but Tyra and the gang have acknowledged that the age limit is unreasonable, especially since models of all ages are landing major contracts. Now catwalker wannabes of all ages have a shot at stardom, regardless of when they were born.
