RNO: It seemed like you were lacking self-confidence, so would you say that being on the show helped that, or hindered it even more?
Lluvy: The show has been so hard at times to watch because like I said on the show, I'm my biggest critic. I don't even like to hear my own voice on the answering machine. I think the show has helped me though. I didn't realize I was such a dork until I saw myself on TV, and my friends and family have confirmed it – I am a dork!
RNO: Do you think you overreacted to Michelle having impetigo, or was everyone freaked out in their own way? I'll tell you one thing, I'll never forget when you did your little gagging motions.
Lluvy: Oh no! I still feel so bad about all that. My mom looked at me and goes, "I can't believe you did that!" I think I was so freaked out about the whole thing was because Tiffany was grossing me out, telling me I was going to get it to since we shared the same makeup that morning. They didn't show that I helped Michelle with all her medicine and creams and stuff!
RNO: Did anyone try to stop Brittany from dancing on the table in the middle of a restaurant since it looked like she was making a scene?
Lluvy: Ehh, we tried for like a second, by telling her not to do it, but she continued to do it, not to mention kept trying to get the other girls to get on as well. The funny thing is, nobody said anything the day after it happened either. I guess we were all over it. Well, most of us!
RNO: Did you feel the judges were being a bit too hard on you by saying your Zodiac shoot was the worst photo in Top Model history?
Lluvy: They didn't actually show it, but I smiled when they said that, since I was thinking to myself: "Oh no, you’re THAT girl!" I can't believe they made that the episode title! The funny thing is, watching all the other seasons, I'm thinking of other shots, and they were bad too. Mine was bad because I was only allowed to do one pose, and the makeup was bad too. It wasn't just me that was bad, it was a combination of things.
RNO: Do you think you would do the show again, knowing what you do now?
Lluvy: Oh, I would do it all over again in a second. It was so much fun, I got to be on my favorite show, which I still don't believe, and I made a whole bunch of new friends.
RNO: Where do you plan on going from here? Do you want to continue on the modeling path, or are you ready to move onto something else?
Lluvy:When I was on the show, I was confused about what I wanted and where I was in my life. Now I truly know that modeling is what I want to do. I plan on moving to L.A. once the show is over, and hopefully I can find some work. I would love to do runway, since it's my passion.
RNO: Finally, what's the one thing about you that the cameras didn't show? Would you say you were edited fairly?
Lluvy: I don't think the cameras showed how close I grew with some of the girls. I'm getting married in November, and I know that some of the girls are coming to my wedding. I was edited pretty fairly though, except I came off looking like a dork, but it turns out, I think I really am one, which I'm happy with!
RNO:Thanks, Lluvy! Good luck with everything!
