Teenage high school graduates audition to become either flight attendants of models in a somewhat outdated Chinese competition.
More than 1,000 young men and women paraded around in their swim wear in the hope of landing their dream job.
The school, in Qingdao, north-east China’s Shandong Province, holds the competition every years so budding stewards or catwalk creepers can get a leg up in the industry, reports the People’s Daily Online .
It is hosted by the Oriental Beauty modelling agency.
According the company’s website, candidates for the event on Monday had to be 5ft 6ins tall – although for those with particularly striking looks this could be dropped by an inch.
The women must be “elegant, slim, have sweet voice and have no scars in the exposed part of their skin,” the rules adds.
Becoming a flight attendant in China is said to be a very competitive business.
Successful applicants could be offered a place at an air steward school or model training agency.
