National Post – Canada / Modelling competition fixed, runner-up says
NEW YORK – The runner-up in a U.S.-wide modelling competition won by Canada’s Jessica Stam says the contest was fixed and that the talent agency promoting it stiffed her out of her “guaranteed” second-place prize.
Former aspiring model Caitlin Williams claims in a US$1.5-million lawsuit against New York Model Management that the agency had “chosen ? Stam? to be the winner” of the 2002 competition ahead of time.
