Van Den Dungen 'worried about weight loss'
Teen model Cassi Van Den Dungen has revealed that she doesn't want to work internationally as she would be made to lose weight.

The size six Australia's Next Top Model runner-up, who was recently criticised for turning down a modelling job in New York to stay with her boyfriend in Australia, said she is scared that she would be forced to slim down to a size four.

Van Den Dungen told the Herald Sun: "I know the international market would want me to lose more weight. I don't want to lose any more weight. I'm happy with the way I am and I actually want to put the weight I lost from the stress of the show back on."

The Sunbury-born star also announced that she'd like to be a healthy role model for teenage girls, saying: "I am already in between a size six and eight but I would like to be a more average size, say between eight and ten."

Van Den Dungen added: "It freaks you out to see how skinny these girls can get. They have got to be unhealthy and not eating properly and if they are eating properly then they are not eating enough."
