Just ask Courtney Davies, who was eliminated from Americas Next Top Model this past Wednesday (Sep. 18).
Davies competed on the show the entire time with a broken foot, crutches, and walking bootie, the result of a bizarre cheerleading accident.
Tyra Banks and company gave her a break and allowed her on the show but its not the first time Davies has broken the mold.
As a gymnast and cheerleader shes broken her right ankle three times and her left foot once.
Her most recent injury left doctors baffled because she broke a bone in her heel that people rarely hurt.
Davies says bodily damage is standard in the gymnastics and cheerleading worlds, which is why she considers those sports way more fierce than modeling could ever be.
Top Model airs Wednesdays on The CW.
