TANYA HUTCHISON is one of four finalists on TV Land's "She's Got the Look." Sometimes age can be an advantage in the modeling world. Just ask Tanya Hutchison.

The 45-year-old wife and mother of five is a finalist in TV Land's reality series "She's Got the Look," which seeks out women 35 years and older for a professional modeling career.
Hutchison made the cut from an initial 20,000 contestants and will learn tonight at 10 p.m. whether or not she wins a contract with Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, and a spread in Self magazine. Regardless of outcome, she says it's still a win.
"You're not finished when you lose, you're only finished when you quit," Hutchison said. "Just let that inner beauty shine and in the end, if you're true to yourself and you don't win the title, you've still won."
A native Detroiter (from the Brewster Projects), Hutchison has traveled a long way from the Motor City. She now lives in Orange County, Calif.
"I was born to a teenaged mother addicted to drugs. I didn't know my father till high school," she said.
...
They took a special interest in me although)my GPA wasn't that high," Hutchison said.
...
With a degree in fashion merchandising and public relations communications, Hutchison worked as a department store manager in the cosmetics department.
"That kind of sparked my interest," she said. "At some point I wanted to own my own beauty salon and my own clothing store."
Hutchison traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe as a fashion model, and has appeared in various magazines and TV commercials. She is a member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA). She is a former Los Angeles Raiders cheerleader and "Star Search" champion Spokesmodel.
When Hutchison auditioned for "She's Got the Look," she felt a little trepidation. She admits that at her age, it's hard to compete with 20-year-olds, but the show's creators didn't want a cookie-cutter approach to the conventions of beauty.
"This is all about giving you a second chance," she said. "They're looking for a complete woman, not a supermodel. That's why I'm still in the competition. In modeling you're supposed to be super thin, but they were looking for complete women."
She was concerned that her scars, usually frowned upon in a profession where flawless skin is the norm, would hurt her chances.
"I have physical scars from when I was stabbed at the age of 13 by some jealous girls," she said.
...
"I knew the odds were against me, and knowing that, I still remained open to what I could become," Hutchison said. "I was determined I could be something different. I'm not the most beautiful one on the show, but when you talk about a total package, that's me." Tanya Hutchison will make an appearance on the "CBS Morning Show," Thursday, 7 a.m., on Channel 62 Detroit.
