Pregnant Model Wows Crowd At Detroit Auto Show
Auto show models have evolved from being just pretty faces standing next to the car to intensively trained experts able to answer questions on all aspects of the vehicles.

Product specialist Jennifer Parmenter, a model who was six-and-one-half months pregnant, was staffing the recent auto show in Detroit and some of the people were more interested in her baby on board than they were in the cars on display.

The model's employer drew accolades for his progressive view of presenting cars. Yet since automakers now want their models to be approachable and relatable, a pregnant model would make sense if you want to attract young families.

People may think models are still bimbos who stand next to cars, but they are very well versed in technology. Some even learn how to handle the vehicles on a racecourse.
