Should I try out for America's Next Top Model, yes or no?

The height requirements for tryouts are now 5'7'' and under. My sister is trying out Saturday morning and wants me to join her. I've always entertained the idea, but never did for many reasons.
1. My nagging feminist brain only RECENTLY began to understand that virtually anything can be taken on with a feminist perspective, even modeling.
2. I'm 5'5'' and 130-135 pounds off and on.
3. I have a pair of impressive, though unconventional DD boobz that prevent me from fitting into many shirts and swimsuits.
4. And of course the ever-present idea that I might not be as pretty as I think. Of course.
If the height requirements are lowered and the last few seasons have included plus size models, there might be a chance in-between sized girls like me might be considered this time around. So. Not fishing for compliments or looking to purposely belittle myself for sympathy or anything, cross my heart. I just find it helps to have some backup opinions on confusing situations.
In all honesty, what do you guys think? Would the almighty feminist goddesses smite me?
