RNO: Concerning the go-sees, did you know that Priscilla could hear your yelling and cursing right outside the door? Do you think you overreacted?
Brittany: Ugh, I totally overreacted. I threw an immature tantrum and it was a disaster. I didn’t even know that she could hear me, and what you didn’t see, of course, was me apologizing to Priscilla at panel. I was out of line and threw a very unnecessary fit.
RNO: At the time, did you realize that the designers you saw had such a bad reaction to you? What do you think you could have done differently to sway their opinions?
Brittany: I had no clue that they felt that way! I should have been myself. I was just so petrified from the previous week when I was almost sent home that I was being overly polite and cordial because I didn’t want to screw up. It sort of backfired. I was just so frustrated and started to feel like there was no world outside of the show, and that’s exactly how they want you to feel because then you act irrational, like how I was. They got their reaction out of me. However, I’m not bitter – I know what I signed up for!
RNO: Were you surprised that the judges barely even mentioned Natasha being disqualified from the challenge? Just because the clients liked her doesn’t excuse her lateness, right?
Brittany: It does and it doesn’t. Natasha should have been allowed in since the clocks in the taxi were five minutes slower than the clock at the agency. When I showed up, the clock said I was a minute late, so by the cab’s time, Natasha made it. As far as it not being mentioned that much at panel, I think that’s because Tyra has been singing Natasha’s praises and setting her up to do very well. The pool thing wasn’t mentioned either!
RNO: Standing with Dionne, did you think you had a chance of staying or did you feel you were going home? Before elimination, you said you didn’t even think you’d be in the bottom two!
Brittany: Oh, I was positive that I was going home. Before I left for the show, I was told by friends that the girls that do well early in the competition usually get sent home when there are five or six girls left so that they are the shocking elimination. I know that when I was doing well so early that I would be one of those people, but I’m fine with that. From what I’ve heard, the girls that get sent home around this time get more work than the winners!
RNO: What type of advice would you give to girls that are thinking of applying to future seasons?
Brittany: You really just need to be yourself. Be genuine, and you can’t go wrong. That’s my advice.
RNO: What’s your plan from here? Do you think you are going to still pursue modeling, and do you think the way you were edited on the last episode might actually work against you in the real world?
Brittany: No, I don’t think that. Most people in the fashion industry know that it’s a TV show and don’t even take it that seriously anyway. They know it’s an edited reality TV show, and base things more on interviews. I’m moving to New York City after the show is done airing so that I can attempt to pursue a career in modeling. I think I’ll fit in better in NYC then I would in Australia or LA.
RNO: Is there anyone specific you are rooting for now that you have been eliminated? And who do you think has the most potential to take the title of America’s Next Top Model?
Brittany: I’m rooting for Renee or Natasha at this point. They are both such strong women and both are beautiful. I think they both have the attributes to not only go far in the competition, but in the industry as a whole!
RNO: Is there anything you would like to add or say to fans of the show?
Brittany: Just thank you to the fans. I really did have a blast!
RNO: Thanks, Brittany!
