Chinese model Dong Lei was actually planning on becoming a teacher until she was discovered by a reality show called “Supermodel.”
Now, the 20-year-old is taking the world by storm. And it’s one feature that everyone is talking about – her really long legs.
They are an astounding 45 inches each.
That’s nearly four feet long, or about the average height of a 7-year-old child.
For reference, the model is 5’11” – and as they say, her legsgo all the way up.
Dong Lei spoke to Yahoo! about her newfound fame:
“I find it incredible that I have suddenly become an Internet celebrity! I really enjoy my life and work at this moment,” she said.
“I fly around a lot and my work is also partly like a holiday. I will work hard to succeed going forward and hope for the best.”
Interestingly, she doesn’t even have the longest legs in the world. That record is held by a retired Russian basketball player named Svetlana Pankratova.
