the thing is though, Elk is genuinely plane as hell. look at Sophia, she really is striking. even Danielle, and i can't believe i'm saying this, but she does have a pretty face and a really beautiful figure. Elk is absolutely unremarkable, and the fact that so many people follow her "career" is baffling to me, she's got 0 personality (at least from what we get to see) and she doesn't catch your eye at all.
Listen, this is going to sound harsh, but whatever. I specialise in Casting; I’m highly sought after and I’m extremely good at what I do. This means that I spend the majority of my days looking for people to appear on television, and while personality is extremely important, the majority of shows can only get away with having a moderate number of “normal to ugly” looking people on it, so attractive people are in high demand.
I see A LOT of faces every single day, and I have to be ruthless. If I’m told “find us some eyecandy”, then I’m only allowed to put forward extremely attractive people, with no exceptions.
And let me tell you, if Eleanor applied for one of my shows as I was asked by an Exec to describe her, I’d say “She’s skinny but she’s a bit faceless. You should watch her video because she doesn’t look like any of her pictures in person. She acts like she thinks she’s posh, but she comes across as a bit of a wannabe. I’ve got better options.”
When I talk to girls that look like she does, and they tell me they’re a model (and there are a lot of them) I immediately think “Uh huh, sure you are” and know that what that means is they’re unemployed and they’ve been lucky enough to book for two modeling jobs in the past 18 months, probably for something fairly low-budget and local, like a small town car show. Or I keep asking questions and find out they’re an ASPIRING model, but right now they’re working at H&M or Nandos to pay the rent.
This is a girl who resoundingly WOULD NOT be where she in today, if it wasn’t for the attention her bearding has brought her, and frankly I’m sick of her vanity and her attitude.
