She's 22, and took a break from college to manage a bar & restaurant in Boston. A couple weeks ago, she went to NYC to a "casting call" and made $500 for a couple hours shoot. This week they flew her to Chicago for an all day shoot, for which she made quite a bit more. She was a straight A student on a fast track to an MBA before she decided she'd rather be an innkeeper for a while. She's a very smart girl, so I'm not really worried about any unsavory types exploiting her. Her new boyfriend isn't exactly thrilled about the whole thing. As for me, I'm feeling a kind of fatherly pride that she was chosen from the casting call to do a second shoot even without the usual vetting process of going up on the web site and winning the casting call web poll.
Still, it's a little weird. Weirder still that I wanted to share with you lot, I suppose.
Before anyone asks, here's one of the tamer frames from her casting call video.
And no, you can't have her phone number.
