It's all just hype. Preview staff say they have about 86% callbacks.

BUT callbacks DOES NOT mean you get signed to an agency. A callback just means they thought you were interesting enough to be considered. When it comes to signing, I would guess that about 1% of all callbacks land a contract with an agency. Although an agency made a "callback" that is just so you then email the agency and you might get a generic response saying, "we are sorry, but we are not interested" or "we're moving in a different direction." With Preview Models, you're paying for a one-time experience of a small runway, not for an agency contract.

The production show is never filled to capacity, NEVER!! And, the majority of attendees to the show are family/friends of the models. It felt like only about 25% of the agencies Preview Models claimed would be in attendance, actually showed up, and about 50% of those that did show up to the production show, showed up to the meet and greet with models. The agencies that did show up to the meet and greet it's their job to show up to these events, photograph and take the pictures back to their agency...it is not their decision to sign you.

Think about it, why would recognized and established agencies show up to a small production when they are getting hundreds of electronic submissions by aspiring models on the regular...and btw you can apply and submit for FREE!!! I meet the typical "standard" of a model, both in height and measurements, and I'm not that bad looking either, but nobody is a sure contract.

Everyone there, with the exception of the models and, possibly the designers, are making money. It's a market, a tough one at that.

Scam Scam Scam!!!

This company recruited my daughter and had her believing that she was about to become the next big thing. They tell you in the first meeting that you should never pay have to pay a penny to become a model but then send you home with a pamphlet that states in fine print that there is a 6k charge for their services. They are literally just trying to get your hard earned money and nothing else. This is horrible and heartbreaking to these young people that arent reading the fine print and are naive to these kind of scams. Dont waste your time!

I paid for their service

Paying over $3k for this company is the biggest regret of my life. I wish I could turn back time and I did not sign their contract. Their so called models are not even near average beauty standards because they pick whoever willing to pay for their scam. Their fees and...
