The unforgettable Whitney Thompson, plus-sized winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 10, is launching into an ambitious new career: president and founder of an online dating site for plus-sized women called The Big and the Beautiful.

As the only plus-sized model to ever win America’s Next Top Model, Whitney is the perfect spokesmodel for the average, healthy American woman looking for love. As she says in her press release, “Anyone who has looked for love online, like me, is familiar with the cycle: post ‘flattering’ photos to get attention, then stress about the face-to-face meeting... I created this site so people don’t have to stress over their profile, but can focus on the fun and excitement of meeting and dating other incredible people of all shapes and sizes.”

The auspicious concept will likely attract tons of girls, and, as Whitney puts it, “[a curvy woman] can show her confidence and know that the men are here for — not in spite of — her physical attributes.”

Compared to the typical ANTM winner’s post-show activities (furniture catalogs, yawn), we’re actually excited to see one of Tyra’s young students graduate into a very Tyra-esque career.
