Are You Skinny Enough To Be A Karaoke Hostess?

Did you know that a good karaoke hostess should be somewhat fragile? I think it has a lot to do with how you sway when you sing ‘Paradise By The Dashboard Lights.”

Our friends over at Jezebel found this truly bizarre Craigslist ad which reads:

EXTRA THIN FEMALES $3000-$5000 (incl tips) (LOS ANGELES)

Karaoke Club companies in Koreatown continue recruitment of friendly Hostesses with extra thin, fragile, fashion model appearance (long skinny arms and legs, NOT an athletic look) to socialize with and entertain professional / business clientele in a private club environment (this is NOT an escort service, not a massage parlor, not a strip club)
Monthly earnings $3000 – $5000 including tips ; some knowledge of Korean and some experience as an entertainer is a big plus, but not required. No sex, no dating with customers, no nudity, some alcohol. Regular Hours: 9pm – 2am

AGE: 21-28 and FRAGILE (NOT ATHLETIC) appearance – APPROXIMATE height/weight ratio requirements (what extra thin means): for a height of 5’7″ – 90-100lb, 5’8″- 110lb, 5’9″ – 115lb and 5’10″ – 120lb . If you dont exercise, don’t have muscles and look naturally SKINNY (not intentionally anorexic) – this is the right look

Please email your resume (if any) and Full Length pictures
Successful candidates will be contacted over the phone for
interviews.

What I’m taking away from this is with its long, skinny arms and legs, ET would pretty much be the best karaoke host ever.

    Jesus. It was bad enough but when I see the actual weights they list out – AHHHH! 5′ 7″ at 90 pounds? But they *don’t* want the girls to look anorexic? Does not compute. In high school I was 5′ 6″ and 115 and people constantly told me I looked too skinny/gangly. I cannot even imagine lopping 25 pounds off my high school body and still being alive.
