Tablet Magazine reports that there is a Modern Orthodox girl named Esther Petrack from Massachusetts on America’s Next Top Model with Tyra Banks.

It’s always cool to see a fellow member of the tribe on TV show, even a reality show. It is more than a little counter-intuitive to see a Jewish girl competing for a modeling contract when you consider the tradition of tznius (something akin to modesty) that has been a hallmark of observant Judaism. In fact it probably breaches most tznius standards to just participate in a reality show, but certainly a show that celebrates the barely clothed human body.
