Description

WTVF-TV in Nashville did a hidden camera investigation into the local branch of Wilhelmina, an international talent scouting company. The investigation found that the company was receiving thousands of dollars from average citizens after assuring them they could be the next big Hollywood model or star. After receiving the money, the company would then take unprofessional photos and post them on their website. The investigation also found that Wilhelmina's local "success story" had not been very successful at all.
