Being a flight attendant isn't as easy as it looks, and in China, you've got to get in a bikini first. Chinese modeling agency Oriental Beauty, along with recruiters from the aviation and modeling industries, hosted a competition to find the most beautiful flight attendants in Qingdao, China.

Over 1,000 female high school graduates from Shandong, Hebei, Shanxi, Anhui, Jiangsu, and Jilin participated.

They were wearing matching bikinis and flight attendant uniforms.

All this..just to land a job.

Potential flight attendants were required to be at least 5’6” tall unless they are extraordinarily beautiful, in which case being 5’5” is acceptable.

At the very least, they could well be models if they don't get the job?
