Meet Roland, the winner of the contest by a rather large margin. Now I'm glad to see that there are a lot of people who seem to sincerely think that our friend here would make a good model. I really am. However this is not the first time that a person that was outside the established norm gained a foothold in the modeling world. And thinking back to the attention Miller got its now two years later how much as the outlook on the modeling industry really changed?
Maybe its just the fat hatred I've faced talking but I just get the feeling that for as many people that really and truly thought Roland would make a good model I can't help but think that there are a lot of people who voted for him for the sake of being "funny" or "different". I mean come on the outcast girl was voted prom queen in the movie "Carrie" and we all saw why that election was rigged. (Although I don't think Ronald is going to lock us in a high school gym and kill us all.)
But anyway as you can see Roland is not what would be considered conventionally attractive (acne, fat, etc...) but he still won. As I say its nice because I bet a lot of people really like the way he looks but on the other hand I wouldn't be so quick to say that this means the end of fat hatred.
