RNO: One of the most dramatic things that happened this season was when you collapsed at the elimination ceremony. Have things been okay, and do you find people are worrying about you for no reason?
Rebecca: Things have been fine since then. I'm on a medication now, so I won't be collapsing anymore. I just don't think people understood the situation at the time. Everyone was fine though once they calmed down. I'm glad that everyone was there for me though. All the girls helped me, and Tyra was right there to hold my hand and wipe away my tears.
RNO: I'm sure none of the girls knew that two of you were going to be eliminated. When you were standing in front of Tyra with Tiffany, did you think you would be the one going home?
Rebecca: Yeah, I thought it was me, simply because I was standing right there in the final two at the last elimination ceremony, for the same exact reason. Plus, Tiffany was great. She had amazing pictures, and I just couldn't be this sexy edgy girl they were looking for.
RNO: Your biggest criticism from the judges was that you are consistently "safe." Were you ever told how to break out of that mold?
Rebecca: There is really only so much the judges can do. They gave me some advice, but it was up to me to pull through and get down the look that they wanted. I feel good that they gave me as much feedback as they possibly could though.
RNO: Were you uncomfortable posing with the male model, or was it edited out of context, since you do know in the "real world" you would have to model with guys, right?
Rebecca: I think it was exaggerated a little, but I was nervous, and there were other things going on that I don't really want to talk about. But when you are on TV in your underwear, and there's a guy in his underwear too, it's a little scary. I'm okay with everything now, though.
RNO: Do you consider being on ANTM the jumpstart for your modeling career or the high point?
Rebecca: Oh, this is just the beginning for me! I hope that it's a jumpstart to really get into modeling once the show is over. I can't wait to do it without the cameras always following me around and all.
RNO: Is there anything besides modeling you aspire to do?
Rebecca: Honestly, no. I've always wanted to do this, and even took a break from school so that I could get into this business. This is my dream.
RNO:Have you spoken to Tiffany since you have been off the show, and is she doing better now?
Rebecca: I only got to speak with her briefly for a few seconds, on what I think was Inside Edition. She seemed like she was doing well, she's such a great person and I think she's doing very well.
RNO:What's the one thing about Rebecca that we didn't get to see on the show?
Rebecca: You didn't get to see how much fun Kahlen and I were always having together. We had peanut butter fights and everything. I think we may have come across as too serious at times, but what can you do? I had a blast on the show!
RNO: Thanks, Rebecca!
