The new season of "America’s Next Top Model" will feature Isis Tsunami, a transgender model amongst the 14 contestants. He/she is a 22-year-old from Maryland. Tsunami was born a male but says he/she has always felt totally female. She also added, "Some people might say that I’m transgender, some people might say transsexual. Personally I prefer ‘born in the wrong body."
In the Entertainment Tonight preview shown here, Isis wowed Tyra Banks who insisted that Isis Tsunami be included in the contest even after being told by staffers about how extraordinary Isis was. How Isis will fare in the contest remains to be seen. There are a couple of other You Tube clips where you can be the judge. The first one here shows her sharing a runway with another model and the other shows her sashay moves.
