A tall model from Anhui province, China, has been making waves since she was featured on the Chinese reality TV show Ai Shang Chao Model, reports Shanghaiist.

Ms Dong Lei stands 1.82 metres tall, but her long legs have become the main focus of her fans. Judges noticed she had the longest limbs on the show, a trait she attributed to her family's genes.

"My father is 1.86 metres and my mom is 1.72 metres," Ms Dong said, "My height soared during my high school years."

Ms Dong had previously been in a vocational school to earn a major in preschool education, but entered a modelling competition in Beijing at the urging of her friends and teachers.

She won second place and has since awed photographers with her "legs for days."

Ms Dong's legs are 3cm longer than those of Nadja Auermann, a German model and actress who once held the Guinness World Record for the World's longest legs in the 90s.
