» Model City takes on the Big Apple

Sandra Omo is packing her bag and reaching for the stars

If there is one thing being a model has taught me, it’s how to expect the worst, and then act like it‘s normal. As funny as this may sound, it is the plain truth, even though is not exactly spelt out like this. When you attend castings and auditions, you are expected, or shall I say taught, to hope for the best – the possibility that you might be the one chosen for the job; while at the same time expecting the worst – the possibility that you might not be picked.

Sandra Omo despairs of the models who give up their career too easily

Limitations, they are everywhere. In everything you do or try to do, there is always that ‘something’ trying to tell you, ‘you can’t do it’, or in a moral form, ‘you should not do it’. Often, limitations are so moral and so logical that we find an excuse to fall for it. I have met countless people who failed without even trying at that big dream they once had. Why? There were limitations everywhere. It seemed logical to pull out and do something less. Each time I meet a case like this, within me I am dying to ask these people: “If you could believe so strongly in the impossibilities, why didn’t you just believe in the possibility?”

» Model City: The waiting game

Sandra Omo examines why so many models previously waited on tables

Why are so many models waiters? This has become such a norm that whenever I see a successful model, I ask myself: “Was he or she ever a waiter?” And the answer is always ‘yes’. Yes in the early days when he or she was waiting for a breakthrough. It’s not just models who know what it is like to be waiters, as actors and dancers and other forms of entertainers take to waiting for the time being before they get their breakthrough.

I know countless models, and I keep meeting more, who are into waiting in one bar or restaurant or the other. For me it’s easy to tell if the person putting my drink or food on the table is into what I do or not. I see it in the way they walk and talk, and even smile. The intention to impress, which is very important in modelling, is always there. For a normal diner, it’s just another polite waiter, but I know it’s another model waiting for a breakthrough.

Latest TV

» Brighton Lights 31

Our new programme for thelatest.tv sees Juice FM presenter Guy Lloyd investigate all manner of things. He starts off with chart-topping band The Hoosiers who were mega-successful a couple of years ago, were dropped by their major label and have become fashionably independent. Their chart-topping album cost £1 million to record, their new album £100 and we reckon it's just as good. We have exclusive footage of this new record. Guy does crazy-golfing with them, checks out their sound-check and witnesses the fans' adoration of the band at Audio in Brighton. In future shows Guy will be doing waxing, Dot Cotton, air guitar and needs your suggestions for more crazy things (or people) to do. Send to bill@thelatest.co.uk
