We're just like supermodels, right?

Was watching "Make Me a Supermodel" and thinking it's possible there's no career further from the requirements of being an association executive, until they reviewed important characteristics ...

Professional
Versatile
Willing to drop everything at a moment's notice to head to an important assignment
Take care of yourself

.... [Didn't mention the looks part.] An interesting aspect of the show is constant challenge each week to adapt to different assignments, even those way out of their comfort zone, and prove their improvement. Sound familiar?

Tonight (the finale) the models had to go to different assignments where various organizations determined if they had the right "look" for whatever needed a model (runway, products, clothes, acting, print, etc.) ... And it made me entirely grateful that the model hired for our upcoming public ad campaign actually looks like "Maine" ... outdoorsy, natural, etc. (pic)

You know, I was trying to think of a snarky comment to make about the fact that you were watching "Make Me a Supermodel" in the first place, but I couldn't, especially after I remembered how many times I've watched that lie detector show, "Moment of Truth." (Now, an adaptation of THAT would make a hell of an interesting general session at ASAE ... or any other conference, come to think of that. Not edifying, but certainly interesting.)

What does Maine look like. There should be a rule that you have to post a picture when describing a model.
