'Top Model' Auditions: Now with Less Carnage!

4/11/2009 7:00 AM PDT
The do over auditions in New York for "America's Next Top Model" today have gone off without a hitch ... and all it took was one violent, bloody riot of hungry models to teach the organizers a lesson.

The would-be models were all greeted by actual police officers and efficient checkpoint stations set up for today's event, instead of smoking cars, trampled bodies and broken high heels. The whole operation was designed to keep the crowd calm.

Unfortunately, not everything was so perfect -- a huge rainstorm hit early this morning, soaking all the wannabe models. Which, actually isn't a bad visual.
