RNO: In your opinion, is there room for a girl like Toccara to make it big in high fashion?
Cassie: In my opinion, Toccara is great and there is room for anyone that has the determination to MAKE high fashion make room for her. Toccara knows she wants to be successful and will do anything for that. With her personality, she can go anywhere.
RNO: Which of your shoots would you say was the most difficult? Which one did you most enjoy?
Cassie: I had so much fun during the Lee jeans shoot because I was being told how sexy I looked and simply for the fact that I love mainstream shoots like that. I'd love to do Sports Illustrated or something like that. The latest picture too, the devil composite I liked as well. The only shot I wasn't happy with was the roller skate shot. It came out so bad and I really hated the shoot. You know what though, everyone has a bad shot at one time or another, and you still have to prove yourself.
RNO: Did everything calm down between Ann and yourself from the time she wrote in your brownies?
Cassie: That whole thing was all over one night and it simmered down after that dinner that we all had. We didn't start talking on a regular basis though until after the show was over, and I always told Ann that I thought she was a great person, but changed when she was around Eva, and even she figured that out. We are pretty good friends now.
RNO: You said before the elimination that you felt it would be Toccara probably going home, but when it came down to you and her at the elimination ceremony did you know it was going to be you going home?
Cassie: Yeah, I pretty much knew the whole day that it was going to be me. You just start to get the feeling, and it's pretty clear who it might be. I had a feeling the judges saw how unhappy I was becoming and how it was starting to have an effect on my shots, so yeah, I knew I was going home.
RNO: Which of the girls would you say is making the most progress? Who doesn't seem to be grasping the whole thing?
Cassie: It's hard to answer that one because everyone makes some kind of progress but it's on their own time. I can't really pick just one girl because like I said, everyone is successful at one point, but it takes some a little longer than others.
RNO: Do you think you have a good chance of being called to be a spokeswoman for Diet Coke?
Cassie: Haha, after watching the show I definitely think I could be a good spokeswoman for Diet Coke, and would love to do so!
RNO: Is your dream of being a top model finished now, or do you still plan on trying to make it in the industry?
Cassie: I never actually said on the show that I didn't want to be a model anymore, and that's the frustrating thing. It's my dream to be a model and I won't allow my elimination on a TV show to conquer that. I'd drop out of school and risk my future to move to New York City and become a successful model. I'm not going to give up even when I'm 50 - then I'll just be an old model!
RNO: Is there anything you would like to say to fans of the show or maybe add something that we didn't get to see?
Cassie: Just let everyone know that I haven't given up, I'm not going to give up and I love New York City!
RNO: Thanks, Cassie!
