“I Felt I Proved the Judges Wrong” – An Interview with America’s Next Top Model 7’s BrookePage 2

RNO: Did you feel that being one of the youngest girls in the house would be an asset or a hindrance in the competition, and why?
Brooke: Actually, I figured it would be an asset. I mean, look at the industry right now. Most models and supermodels these days are starting very young and being pulled from high school at the ages of 15, 16, and 17. I thought the judges would love that I was the youngest girl. However, on the other hand, it was hard for me since I had never been on my own before and I didn’t have the whole college experience of moving away from home, so in that aspect it was a little tough for me.
RNO: I just need to know – did anyone get Fabio to say, “I can’t believe it’s not butter?”
Brooke: Ha! I think that’s the first thing that some of the girls said to him when we found out that we would be working with him! We gave him a hard time about that all day, but it was all in fun.
RNO: Speaking of photo shoots, which would you say was your favorite? Least favorite?
Brooke: I think the best to actually shoot was the celebrity couples photo shoot because the photographer, Matthew Jordan Smith, was great to work with. As far as my favorite photo, I think that would be the wobbly runway photo. I looked fierce and broke out of the cutesy mold that I think I was put in. I can’t wait to get that photo.
RNO: Are you rooting for anyone in particular now that you have been eliminated?
Brooke: You know, I’m rooting for CariDee at this point. I think she has the whole package. Also, I’m rooting for Jaeda since we were pretty close in the house. I think she has what it takes looks-wise and just needs to show more desire.
RNO: Was there anything about you that the viewer didn’t get to see, or do you feel you were portrayed pretty accurately?
Brooke: All in all, I’d say that I was portrayed pretty accurately. Of course, they did put me in the stereotype of being the cute, young, naïve girl. In a way, though, I am like that. Not fully, but I do have my moments.
RNO: Is it safe to say that you are going to try and pursue a modeling career or are you ready to try something else?
Brooke: Sure, I’d love to continue pursuing modeling. I’m actually in school right now. I go to college at UT Austin, but I’m open to any modeling opportunities that come my way, for sure!
RNO: What is your plan B in case that doesn’t work out for you or you change your mind?
Brooke: Well, like I said, I’m in school and I’m studying broadcast journalism, so hopefully you’ll be seeing me on TV again after I graduate. No more reality TV, though – I’m done with that! Ha!
RNO: Is there anything you would like to add or say to fans of the show? Now’s your chance!
Brooke: I just want to thank you all so much. I’ve heard and read some good things on blogs all over the Internet, and I appreciate all the support – I read it all! Thank you!
RNO: Thanks, Brooke – good luck!
