Tyra Banks is jumping on the plus-size bandwagon to spearhead yet another model search that surprisingly won't air on TV. This one is for plus-size teens, and she posted a video on her website — which she's taken to calling a "magaline" — to announce it. Watch it if you care to hear her explain why she calls it the "Fiercely Real Model Search" and watch her demonstrate how to pose stand. Prizes include a one-year contract with Wilhelmina, appearing on Tyra's magaline site, and spending a day with Tyra, who really has lost quite a bit of weight recently.
