Courtney Stodden recently filmed a sexy video in hopes of becoming the next spokesmodel for FreeCreditScore.com, but alas, she didn't make the cut.
The 17-year-old aspiring starlet has a few theories as to why the company passed on her clip, telling Radar, "Even though my commercial went viral internationally and was the most popular, I am apparently too dang sexy for FreeCreditScore.com."
In the commercial, two young men are fishing by the beach, and after reeling in what they hope to be a big fish, Courtney (dressed as a mermaid, natch) emerges from the sea. Courtney shakes the water off her body and giggles, "OMG. I'm so…wet."
FreeCreditScore.com said in a statement that they "did not hire, approve, or compensate Ms. Stodden or her production team for an advertisement or to represent the brand in any fashion." A rep for the website added, "[Courtney] and a production team were among dozens of creative producers who responded on spec to a posting on Poptent.com, a crowdsourced video production service, where brands and agencies post specific video assignments to generate creative concepts for review and consideration by a brand. Poptent's participation guidelines specifically state that any and all work product must first be selected, reviewed, and approved by the client brand or agency before it can be commercially shared or distributed. Such review and approval from Poptent.com or FreeCreditScore.com never occurred." Burn!
