Amazon Eve,a girl from Turlock, California, stands at 6ft 8¾ inches with her bare feet,but if she throws on some 6 inches spike heels,she is even taller than Shaquille O'Neal.Eve,30,is now a full-time model and actress and thought to be the world's tallest model,but she also wrestles shorter men for $400 an hour.
Before November last year,she was completely unknown until an Australian magazine called Zoo Daily put her in a bikini on the front cover-turning into an international and sensation.It was the biggest-selling issue ever for the magazine,and now she has been featured in a couple of hundred magazines in 27 different countries.
Eve, credits her height to genes,saying her German and Dutch heritage is the reason why she is so tall.Her mother is 6ft 1 inches,and her father stands at 6ft 7 inches.She didn't notice anything unusual about her height until she was about 14.
“Sure, I was taller than everybody else, but I was only 5 feet 11 inches. That's tall but still somewhat OK. I could buy shoes. I could buy clothes. I could shop. By the time I was 15, wow, I was growing real fast. By the time I was 18, I was 6 feet 8 inches. That's when it became tough to shop,” she said.
