This Fat Model Is Just Naive

Fat and Overweight Model
Missouri-born model Tess Holliday may have grab a couple of spaces in the news lately after she the plus-size model signed with a major modeling agency, but it doesn't mean anything. Unlike what she may be thinking, demand for her services won't be high any time soon.

In January this year, Anna Shillinglaw, the owner and director of the U.K-based agency, told the Daily News, "I think we’re the only agency with a model of her size. She is by far the largest model I have in the [Curves] division."

At 260 pounds and a size 22, many would argue that 29-year-old Holliday, whose real name is Tess Munster, isn’t just plus-size, but an unhealthy obese.

Models like Myla Dalbesio, Ashley Graham, and Robyn Lawley — all of whom were considered already as plus-size models by media are the ones that should be considered as normal sized women (with exceptional features) who clock in around size 12 or 14. These are healthy and not skinny models that everyone could be idolizing without and health risk.

Holliday is just significantly larger, and has nothing to celebrate about even she was featured in the cover of People magazine.

Holliday, whom the magazine calls "The World’s First Size 22 Supermodel," is making a big splash for reasons that she was too naive to see. She tells the magazine, "My phone still hasn’t stopped ringing. It’s good, but it’s a lot!"

She failed to understand that the reason that the phones have not stopped ringing could have been because it was the first for the magazine.If People featured a wild boar or a orca whale in an evening gown, these unique creatures would probably received the same amount of call if not more.

Calling her a supermodel might be a little stretch for the magazine. She may be destined for fame, but definitely not as a model. She could portray somebody in the film who had trouble with her wait and just couldn't stop eaiting.

After trying to model for 14 years, she is now one of the faces of "Benefit and Torrid," with nothing more to come.

Holliday says she was bullied, even receiving death threats, as a teenager. "Nobody was interested," she says of her first open casting when she was 15, but she stuck with it: "I just knew that I could do it. I wasn’t the best, and I still am not the best. The key to it is just doing it."

Just doing it? Is this even for real? The girl is pushing 300 pounds. Not even half the cardiac patients right on a daily basis are that big. And America has a lot of them and 98 percent are overweight. Just something for Holiday to think about. What is she modelling anyway?

If America wants to embrace diabetes, heart disease, and lack of will power so all the kids today can think it's perfectly healthy to be overweight and have no motivation to exercise to stay at a healthy weight and live with a healthy lifestyle, then Holliday is the right model for you.

In the meantime, those with enough sense left in their mind are better off embracing healthy size and avoid carrying around extra fat as the pharmaceutical field continues to profit from all the meds everyone has to be on.
