Hands down the most interesting contestant in the American Apparel "Next Big Thing" search is Nancy Upton. Annoyed with its condescending tone, Nancy entered the contest using this photo:
There are more images at her Tumblr, ExtraWiggleRoom.

It's certainly not meant to be offensive towards plus size women." Does anyone think she went too far?
