So I really want to become a model, but how pretty do you have to be to become one? I know I'm pretty (sounds conceited, but well yeah). But like out of 10? Because I'm considering getting a scouting... But I don't know if I'm 'beautiful' enough. And I'm not gonna post a picture, sorry but personal reasons.

it depends on whether we're talking part time or full time, agency repped girls are definitely a higher caliber, many girls can get paid, but mostly by amateurs trying to build their port.
these are 2 girls who modeled for me that i know were trying to get signed but never did. so in order to get agency representation, which is really the only way to do it full time unless you get semifamous, you have to be reasonably hotter than these girls

check the agencies for the kind of girls they're looking for cause each one is different, but even if you can't get repped there is still money to be made from the portfolio building market, just understand that you're probably going to make most of your money through "GWCs" which is a derogatory term for "guys with cameras" in other words, perverts and mouth breathers pay the most and if you want to work with real artistic talent YOU may have to pay THEM. the other thing you should probably be aware of is that the modeling industry is a catty superficial nightmare filled with cliques, pandering and big egos, thats why i left. there's not so much new money and jobs coming into the industry as there is a circulation of the same money as they pay each other to be "worthy" to be in each others presence. modelmayhem is full of trolls who rule the vast expanse of people trying really hard to say the most generic non-sexual comments possible lest they be ousted by a kangaroo court of volunteer moderators, everyone jacks off each others egos with lines like "comment for comment", like its a competition to see who can pander the hardest. its a real shitshow. i know this dude who used to work as a staff photographer for playboy and now he can't even find work cause he keeps getting underbid by amateurs.0

There's a modelling agency purely for ugly people.
It's not about beauty, it's more about unique features or a very striking face. Their requirements change, it seems almost monthly, on what sort of face they're looking for and when they find it, they know it's "the one". So there's a chance.
There's loads of unattractive models.
