Taking Modeling to New Heights

***This post has been brought to you by GUEST BLOGGER WES aka FactSnacks' biggest fan. I appreciate the love and the blog entry! Give it a read and enjoy.***

Many women would agree that dating a taller man is ideal…. so what’s a girl to do if she happens to be a towering 6 foot 8 inches tall? Well, she could hope to link up with a NBA Center (See Shaquille O’Neal or Andrea Bargnani) or she could become a professional model! Meet Amazon Eve, the World’s Tallest Model. She was recently granted the title by the Federation of World Records and is waiting to be measured by Guinness World Records for their official recognition.

When you think tall, this girl has it all. She has a 40” inseam, 38” arms and a size 14 shoe size! At age 14 Eve was 5 foot 11 inches tall, and grew an additional 9 inches in the next 4 years.

Her big break in the modeling world happened in November 2009 when she was featured on the cover of the Australian Edition of Zoo Weekly, a men’s magazine. Since then, Amazon Eve’s lengthy figure has graced magazines, newspapers, and websites in over 27 countries around the world. Aside from modeling, Eve has worked as an actor, a personal trainer, and a paralegal, with hopes to complete law school in the near future.

Bearing her new title as the World’s Tallest Model, the sky is indeed the limit for the soaring self-proclaimed Super Woman. Perhaps general managers of the WNBA will take notice in Amazon Eve, and see if her talents extend beyond her already full-sized resume. Check below for a video of some of her photo shoots (at 1:20 you will experience the true length).

Thanks again to Wes for guest blogging on FactSnacks. If anyone else has blog-worthy information do not be shy to let me know! :)

The Force is With This Cutie

Split screen of Max Page & Mark Hamill

If you do not recognize the adorable Max Page it is because he sported a Darth Vader costume in my favourite Super Bowl commercial of 2011. Even though Max's identity was not unveiled in the ad, many have commented on the striking resemblance he has to Mark Hamill... and I would have to agree.

What's even funnier? Max has not even seen an episode of Star Wars! So much for studying for your role, luckily he is so cute he can get away with it.

Despite "The Force" not being with him for the commercial, Max has overcome much in life as his mother explains in a NBC interview that "he is a real inspiration". Born with a heart defect, Max had surgery at 3 months old and now has a pacemaker. He lives his life like any other 6 year old boy now... with the exception he is now a mini superstar and appears on The Young and the Restless. I would say that "The Force" is definitely with him.

Check him out in action in Volkswagon's 2011 Super Bowl Commercial below

Uh huh you know what it is.. SUPER BOWL!


It is Sunday February 6, 2011 and we all know what that means... GLEE is back! Arguably just as-if not more- important, it is Super Bowl Sunday. The 1 day of the year (besides Thanksgiving) when Americans consume the most food and (besides New Year's Eve) have the most drunk driving arrests.

Of the top 10 most watched TV programs ever in American history 9 have been Super Bowls. Will you be tuning in?

When watching tonight please consider the following:

- Although footballs are called pig skins they have never been made of it (BUT some early footballs were made from pig bladders)
- Footballs are all cow hide and it takes 3,000 cows to make enough balls for one NFL season
- The Wall Street Journal collaborated with other researchers to record how much of what happens in the 3 hours it takes for an American football game and here were their findings:
--> HALF are commercials
--> One third consists of players standing around (usually waiting for the clock to run out)
--> 17 minutes of replays
--> Only 11 minutes contains actual live ball game time!

To learn more interesting football facts watch the clip below. Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
