So, get this: The 2008 victor of Holland's version of "America's Next Top Model" has won a lawsuit against the agency that violated the terms of her contract. The reason for the suit?
Amanda Marchildon was supposedly dropped for having hips that were too large, reports the Associated Press. According to the claim, the model was certain she was let go by Elite agency because she didn't lose enough weight to sustain the contract.
In a court ruling Wednesday, the Amsterdam District Court concluded that Marchildon was indeed entitled to receive what she was promised on the show, awarding her around €65,000 (approximately $85,000) in damages, in addition to interest and legal fees.
The published ruling included a statement saying that Marchildon was under the size constraints when she won, therefore making it unfair for the agency to demand she continue to lose more weight in order to maintain the contract.
