In recent years, not many countries have produced more supermodels than Brazil. Gisele Bundchen, one of the world’s most successful models, was discovered as a 14-year-old in a small, rural town of Brazil. Ever since then, the business of talent discovery for modeling has become a huge part of Brazilian culture. Talent scouts, also called “model hunters,” are known to stand outside middle schools and even elementary schools to find girls that have potential.
These talent scouts claim they can tell how beautiful a person will grow up to be by the age of 10. This news report goes inside a casting call of one Brazilian agency and shows how brutal and downright creepy the process can be.
