Would You Wear a Bikini to Audition to Become a Flight Attendant?

by Eric

In case you thought your last job interview was tough, imagine auditioning to become a flight attendant wearing nothing but a bikini!  In Qingdao, China, one modeling agency decided to host a competition for over 1,000 high school graduates.  Attending the event were recruiters from both airlines and modeling agencies.


The list of criteria required for even getting in the door to audition was strict.  These women had to be:

  • At least 5’6″ tall (unless they were exceptionally beautiful… then you could be 5’5″).
  • Elegant.
  • Slim.
  • Have sweet voice.
  • Have no exposed scars.

Daily Mail has created a video of the event, if you are so interested.

Personally, let’s just say that I miss out on several of the above criteria, and unfortunately would make for a poor flight attendant candidate (and a poor model candidate, for that matter)!
