Amazon Eve is thought to be the world’s tallest model at a towering 6 feet 8 inches.
Eve, who is from Turlock, California, completely dwarfs all other models when she stands next to them.
Eve, 31, a full-time model and actress, told the British broadsheet The Daily Telegraph, “I make everybody look short, but when I’m alone, I look like a regular girl. I’m proportionate. It’s only when I stand next to somebody that it looks unusual.”
As well as modeling, Eve wrestles smaller men for $400 an hour.
Eve credits her height to genes, saying her German and Dutch heritage is the reason she is so tall. She told the Daily Mail, “All the women in my family are tall.”
Unsurprisingly, she finds shopping a challenge -- she takes a whopping 14-size shoe.
Eve first hit the headlines last year when she appeared on a magazine’s front cover in a bikini.
