'America's Next Top Model': Nearly 25% of women 18 to 34 would rather win 'ANTM' than Nobel Peace Prize

Oxygen Media today released the results of a survey about 18- to 34-year-old women's relationships to outer beauty versus inner beauty. According to the poll, nearly 25% of women would rather win "America's Next Top Model" than the Nobel Peace Prize. However, putting physical appearance aside, 75% of women said that they would be willing to shave their heads to save the life of a stranger.

It's not clear whether the women polled believed that lifesaving head-shave would  be part of an "America's Next Top Model" makeover or not.

I'm sure that Tyra Banks doesn't actually get the chance to read all of these comments. I just wanted to say that I watch the ANTM obsessed shows every week. I didn't have cable until recently, welcome to the 21st century.....I know. Anyway, when I was younger i aspired to be a model, however, I'm 25 and soon to be 26 in June. I also have a 2yr old little angel named Ethan. I'm curious to know how some of the young single moms that have been on ANTM are able to afford to up and leave without working and having a father to watch their little ones....? I also would like to know....is there a career for women that have the face for modeling but not necessarilly the body? I've always had that ability to " smile with my eyes", most definately came natural to me, unfortunately since i had my little boy I don't quite have the same body as I use to. I'm, by no means, a plus size woman but I have stretch marks and maybe an extra 10lbs. I'm 5'9" and weigh 152 currently. Anyway, I don't know if anyone responds to these comments or not but it would certainly be NEAT-O if someone did. Thank You, Dana Kesseler

I would like to compliment you on giving young girls such an opportunity on ANTM. If I was much younger I would have jumped at the chance. What really bothers me is when the girls are in "make over" time; especially when they are asked to cut their hair; they start crying and get all dramatic. What a chance in a lifetime to have a well known stylist do their hair! In May of last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a full mastectomy. During chemotherapy it didn't take long for handfuls of hair to fall out until I decided to shave my head bald; not to mention the psychological and emotional effects this caused. Please strive to these girls that they are young, beautiful, and have all of their life ahead of them. I'd trade places with any of them. Oh, just for your info, my hair is slowly growing. It's now about 1/2 inches long. Hope you're able to read this and thank you for your time.
