Wannabe Female Model Is Really a Dude?!

1/4/2008 1:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shannon PallayPerhaps the only thing differentiating Bravo's "Make Me a Supermodel" series from the horde of other reality catwalk clones is that one of the female finalists may be a biological man! For the love of Zarf!

On the show's casting special, 22-year-old Fort Lauderdale hottie Shannon Pallay joked about her tomboy status by saying that "despite my extremely feminine physical appearance, I'm actually a man." Move over RuPaul, there's a new gender-bending supermodel in da house!

According to her bio on Bravo's website, Miss Shannon "describes herself as confident, polite, reserved and outgoing -- and says she is constantly contradicting herself." You can say that again!
