RNO: Were you happy with being made to look like Selma Hayek, or was there someone else that you think you would have looked more like or wanted to be?
Jenascia: There were actually several people that I thought I would have looked better as. However, the purpose of the shoot was to transform you into someone you didnít necessarily ďlook like,Ē but someone that you could pull off. The shoot was designed to actually make you look like someone else, not just pretty you up and make you look more like someone you already resemble. I liked it though, it was fun.
RNO: If you had a choice to be stuck on an island with Camille complaining the whole time, or Catie crying the whole time, which would you choose and why?
Jenascia: Haha. I think I would have to go with Camille on this one, based on the fact that I know Camille and I would eventually have a few intelligent conversations. Thatís not saying that Catie canít hold an intelligent conversation, but I think all the crying would eventually drive me crazy. I canít be having that. At least I know I could deal with Camille.
RNO: Nobody ever chose you to go along with them after they won a challenge or a competition. Were you not in any specific group, or did you not get along with most of the other girls?
Jenascia: Ahh, it was never that big of a deal to me, and I never took it personally. I wouldnít say that I was a part of any group there. For the most part, I hung out with Mercedes for most of the time. We did have a tendency to segregate ourselves from the rest of the girls at times. I got along with the other girls, but bonded with Mercedes the most.
RNO: So if you had won a competition, and could take three of the others, who would it have been?
Jenascia: Mercedes, Sara, and April Ė no questions, without a doubt!
RNO: Now that you have been eliminated, is there anyone special that you are rooting for. On the flip side, is there anyone still left that you donít think deserves to win?
Jenascia: Iím definitely rooting for Mercedes. As far as people I donít think should win or donít deserve to, I canít really say. I think each and every girl brought something unique to the show and deserves to win. However, Mercedes is my girl and I wish her the best. She deserves it. I will say this though Ė I hope whoever wins wants it really bad. That could be one of the reasons I was eliminated, I didnít want it bad enough.
RNO: Do you have plans to continue trying to make it in the modeling industry, or have you had enough already?
Jenascia: If it was offered to me, I would definitely consider it. As long as they donít mind my height, thatís up to them. As far as pursuing it though, I donít think so. I really want to get into acting, and that is what I am up to now.
RNO: If there was one thing the show didnít seem to show enough of, concerning you, what would you say it was?
Jenascia: They didnít show my goofy side, and I have a big one. Iím a very fun person and I can be pretty silly at times. That never really came across on the show. Instead, they focused more on my wit and my sarcasm. Iím not complaining because I still came across as humorous, but there is so much about my personality that wasnít shown.
RNO: Is there anything you would like to add? Maybe something that the editors left out that you thought was important or funny?
Jenascia: Yes! There is one incident I really hoped would make it on the show, but didnít. While we were walking to the gym one day, I told Mercedes to hold my Red Bull. Anyway, I walk up ahead and trip myself on purpose, and fall on the cement. Mercedes comes running over to see if Iím okay. It was totally funny and we laughed for a good while. I do that all the time, Iíve gotten pretty good at tripping myself, actually. Anything to make my friends laugh, ya know? I had a good time on the show, and would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
RNO: Jenascia, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to answer my questions. You were great on the show and this interview was so much fun!
Jenascia: Thanks! I had fun too. You better not write anything bad about me though because I know people! Haha, just kidding!
