Kate Upton will never be in a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, casting director says




Nineteen-year-old it girl Kate Upton may be setting the Internet ablaze and reveling in the spotlight her new Sports Illustrated cover is shining on her, but Victoria's Secret wants you to know that while she may be good enough to be in their print catalog, she'll never be a fully accredited Angel. That's because her look is too common to make it onto their signature event, the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. No, they're too busy casting girls with pointy faces and ribs cutting into their own flesh.

"We would never use" Upton for Victoria's Secret show, casting director Sophia Neophitou, who lives in London, told the New York Times. "She's like a Page 3 girl. She's like a footballer's wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy."

You damned idiot, don't you get it? That's why people like her. Kate Upton was discovered in a YouTube video doing the Dougie at a basketball game, is 5-foot-11 and has 36-25-34 measurements (the fact she was raised in Melbourne doesn't hurt here in Florida, either). Just do a Google search to see how people have been reacting to Candice Swanepoel or Gisele Bundchen lately and you tell us if Kate is too trashy to be on your uppity little show. Yeesh.
