THE LITTLE MODEL THAT COULD. | LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL
For those who don't get discovered and take off before their voices change, their relationship with the industry can be a lot like Sienna and Jude: on again, off again.
John Stallings and modeling are currently on good terms but he knows that could change (for better or worse) any day now. Even so, he won't let his heart stray from the sometimes brutal industry. "I have to follow my passions full-force," said the 26-year-old.
Stallings, originally from Sandy, Utah, holds a Bachelor's degree in marketing from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, but don't let the credentials fool you. "I don't have a Bachelor's degree to have something to 'fall back on,' " he said. "I have it because it was instilled in me to get a degree, find a job, cash out my 401k and die. But that's not me."
What is him? See for yourself on "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency," where Stallings joins the rest of the self-proclaimed "first American supermodel's" clan of fledglings in a quest to be the next "it" boy or girl.
Until that actually happens, the former dancer is still walking amongst the rest of us. In fact, he might be the guy who concocted your tall frapuccino this morning. To make ends meet, Stallings serves 'em up daily at Starbucks. "You have to understand self-sufficiency," he said. "Right now I'm just trying to get myself recognized."
It won't be long before that happens right here. Look for Stallings in an upcoming advertising campaign for the Palms' new Fantasy Towers.
