'America's Next Top Model' avoids melee repeat

This time, the aspiring models exhibited somemodel behavior.

The do-over for "America's Next Top Model" Manhattan auditionswent smoothly Saturday. It was a sharp contrast to last month'saudition, which ended when a melee broke out and led to the arrestof three people.

Tighter safety measures this time helped the auditions go moresmoothly. Barricades kept hopefuls in a narrow line, and they wereallowed inside in small groups.

Last time, the jammed sidewalk outside the audition became thesite of a stampede when a smoking car frightened the crowd.

Authorities shut down that audition, saying it wasn't properlyorganized.

The doors Saturday opened at 6 a.m., and more than 1,000 womenwaited in line. In a twist, the show is only considering women whoare under 5-foot-7.
