RNO: Do you think that Janice really means half of the criticism that she gives, or do you think she exaggerates for the cameras?
Sara: Oh, I love Janice! You have to realize that we know her better than the people at home, who only see her for ten minutes a week. She knows that it’s her role on the show to insult us. She plays that part very well and is a very opinionated woman. She doesn’t apologize for anything she says and most of the girls realize that you can’t take her too seriously. You have to take it or leave it, and most of the time, I just shrugged her comments off.
RNO: Who do you think has the best chance of winning right now? I’m sure there are certain people you are specifically rooting for, but who do you think, as of this moment, could win the competition?
Sara: I would say that would have to be either Mercedes or April. Both of them have had amazing photos so far in the competition, and either one of them could take it at this point. Personality wise, April has calmed down a lot. She knows that she can’t be so analytical all the time and isn’t perfect. It’s okay to make mistakes and she knows that now, realizing that everyone is going to get some criticism, no matter how well they do.
RNO: Was there anyone in the competition that you felt was eliminated too early, and didn’t really deserve to go when they did?
Sara: I was somewhat surprised when Jenascia was eliminated. Not so much for the modeling aspect of the show, but since she had such a strong personality. I thought she was going to go very far in the competition. Her personality was so refreshing, and several times after she left we would all find ourselves missing her and wishing that she was still there to make us laugh. She was such a good time.
RNO: When April bumped Yoanna on the runway, was that intentional, or just an accident? Did they ever even discuss it?
Sara: In my opinion, from what I saw and heard, it was a complete accident. Nobody ever really sat down and talked about it, but everyone was confused as to which side of the runway we had to walk down, and some people got confused. April flat out said that she didn’t mean to bump Yoanna, though, and I believe her. She is not that kind of person.
RNO: What are you up to now? Are you considering a new career, or do you plan to continue trying to burst into the model scene?
Sara: Are you kidding me?!?! This is just the beginning of all this! Tyra was so supportive to all of us, and I still want to get involved in the modeling industry. My dream has come true, so I’m going to continue to try and follow it. I may move to New York, L.A., or anywhere that I would have to go in order to pursue a modeling career. It’s my dream, and I don’t plan on cutting it short.
RNO: In retrospect, is there anything you could have done differently to stick around? Mostly, it seemed like you had it together, so I’m curious as to if there was anything you were lacking.
Sara: Honestly, no. Somebody had to go this episode though, and I like I said before, I was just labeled “too sexy” for high fashion. One of the judges even told me that I “vomit sexy.” I’m not quite sure what that meant, but I think it may have been a compliment. I’m happy with everything I did on the show though, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
RNO: Is there anything you would like to add, or say to your fans? Maybe something the editing left out?
Sara: Oh, we went out all the time, not just the one time that they showed last night. We would have so much fun at the clubs. What they didn’t show was that I was a very fun and goofy person that sometimes can be very sarcastic. I had so much fun on the show, and would do it again in a heartbeat.
RNO: Thanks, Sara!
