Shannon Refuses to Model in Underwear on 'America's Next Top Model' -- Again! (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 10th 2011 2:00AM
'America's Next Top Model'When Shannon decided to make a stand against modeling in underwear for the second time this season, shoot director Jay Manuel was prepared to support that decision on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 9PM ET on The CW). But considering she was willing to wear skimpy swimwear and dress in revealing clothes, he was still struggling to understand it.

"I would love to understand the message," he told her, but explaining it proved more than she could handle.

"It just comes down to underwear-- If you go-- It's just kind of different," she sputtered out, leaving him more confused than ever.


In the elimination room, Shannon was cut from the competition, but Banks was quick to point out that it wasn't because she didn't do the photo shoot, or even that she couldn't articulate her reasoning. It was because also she'd never won a challenge, nor had a best photo yet.

If you're going to take a hard stance as a model, that can be okay and accepted. But you'd better otherwise be one of the best, and Shannon just wasn't.

Liberals don't care about anything except groping other women, or gay sex in a shower with a 10 year-old, or Michael Jackson in bed with little boys, or Elvis dating a 15 year-old, or Seinfeld dating a 15 year-old, Obama appointed an openly gay man to be the Safe School Czar. Liberals in Hollywood use the "casting couch" to make women have sex with them before they make them a "star". Liberals in Hollywood always need "nose jobs" because the cocaine eats through the membranes, and Liberals always need "rehab with Dr. Drew" because, boo hoo, like Janice Dickinson cried over and over and over, I was the first supermodel. She has had so much plastic surgery she's going to melt like Michael Jackson's nose.

I applaud her stance completely. She has self respect and refuses to get in the sewer.

I support her decision... and believe it or not, I understand it:

This is all about **CULTURAL** questions. And yes, she's right: in this country (most countries),
there is a big difference, in our culture, between being seen in a swimsuit, and being seen in underwear.

If she walked down the street in her swimwear, some would consider it inappropriate... at worst.

Personally, I don't care: there are african cultures where showing breasts is normal... but you better not show your legs, lol. Nudity is no big deal to me... it's what goes on in the mind/heart/energy that makes it sexy, or makes it taboo, or makes it healthy/natural, or makes it no big deal.

I think she just has an enlarged Labia and doesn't want anyone seeing it.

I understand she has her standards or morals etc; but I just don't understand the reasoning like you won't do underwear but you will do a bikini..which is like underwear (let's keep it all the way funky)..I don't get it. She needs to stick the catalog modeling ( ie Jcpenney, Sears, Alloy) because in HIGH FASHION you are gonna be required to pose in some undergarments (paid of course) stick to commercial modeling Shannon...very low risk, mudane, you will definitely get work but a super model you will not be...and that's fine too.
