Australia’s Next Top Model doesn’t return until July, but the show is already causing controversy. A 16-year-old contestant says a “mentor” on the show told her she needed to lose “centimetres from her thighs.” Alison Boxer, who weighs 55 kg, says, “It was a shock to the system to be told I needed to lose weight. At home a lot of people say I’m too skinny. I was 50kg at one stage, which I thought was a bit scary.” Alison says she was one of four girls told to lose weight just a week into the competition. A Foxtel spokesperson confirmed Alison was told to shed a centimetre around her waist. What do you think? Should contestants on the show be told to slim down?
