RNO: It seemed like you were very emotional at the acting lesson, which was understandable. However, when it came time for you to act out the script, you didn’t seem to care, when all the other girls were using the energy from the day before. What happened?
Catie: I wasn't big on the fact that we had to make out with a stranger. I had never met the guy before and I was expected to kiss him? I just wasn't up for it. Plus, I was so emotionally drained from the day before that I really didn't feel like being a part of the whole thing.
RNO: You knew this was coming – what’s the deal with your hair? Did you keep it short, or are you letting it grow back?
Catie: Well, I have grown it out a little longer, but it has actually grown on me quite a bit. I'm actually really starting to like it. I just miss being able to put my hair in a ponytail if I want. Although, if I wanted to have it longer, I could always just get a weave, instead of waiting for it to grow. I'm still not so sure yet about what I'm going to do with it.
RNO: Everyone notes that there was at least one judge who was really pulling for them. Do you think there was one judge who especially liked you?
Catie: Nigel was always very nice to me, and he was nice on my eyes too. Haha! The thing about Nigel was that he was always honest, but didn't seem to make things larger than life, the way some of the other judges did. He never exaggerated what he though, and just told the straight truth.
RNO: What kind of reactions have you been getting from the public? Are you recognized when you go out, and have people mentioned any of the crying to you?
Catie: Actually, people that recognize me have been really nice, which is not something I expected. I thought people would really ream me out, but people have been so sweet, and I really appreciate that. It's nice to see that people realize what the editor shows isn't exactly what the person is like. I'm telling you, they wanted people to hate me!
RNO: So what’s next? Do you plan on trying to make it in the modeling industry, or are you going to try something else?
Catie: I'm going to continue modeling, without a doubt. If that doesn't work out, or when I'm done with that, I'd like to get into TV, and do some kind of broadcasting or voiceovers. After my modeling career is over, I plan on going to college and getting my degree then, but I still want to do the modeling thing, even if it's just catalog modeling when I'm a little older, but for right now, I want to continue following my dream.
RNO: If there was just one piece of advice you could give to someone who was going to try out for next season, what would you tell them?
Catie: The bottom line is that you have to be yourself. You have to know who you are and know what your sense of style is, or you are going to be very very confused when it's time to showcase all that stuff. That is the best piece of advice I can give to anyone who wants to be on the show.
RNO: Is there anything you would like to say to your fans, or just something you would like to add?
Catie: Well, thank you for doing this interview with me, and remember everyone, avoid the drama, it isn't worth it!
RNO: Thanks, Catie!
