RNO: Whatís the deal with your hair? Did you decide to stick with the short cut or are you back to the purple weave?
Bianca: I can say that I havenít gone back to the purple weave Ė ha! I decided to stick with the short hair. It really did end up being a look that I really love, and Iíve decided to keep the look!
RNO: Looking back, do you feel there is anything you could have done to stick around longer?
Bianca: I do think about it, and I think the only thing I could have done to stick around longer would have been to have a better photo shoot when Tyra was the photographer. I feel like if I had shown more range in that shoot, I would have stuck around. Honestly though, I think itís better that I left when I did. I donít think Iíd be as humble as I am now had I stuck around. Iím young, and I think I really needed to learn a life lesson that you canít always get what you want.
RNO: What did you feel your biggest advantage going into the competition was, and what did you feel would be your biggest weakness?
Bianca: I think my biggest advantage was my personality and my determination. However, I think they ended up being my biggest weaknesses too. Since I have such a strong personality, I knew I was going to have to grow on the judges. Same think with my determination Ė I didnít want to come off as pushy, but I wanted the judges to see that I wanted to win!
RNO: How do you feel being on the show has prepared you for the modeling industry in the real world? Do you feel like you are adequately prepared?
Bianca: I feel like the show gave me the life experience that I need to really go out there and try to pursue a modeling career. Before, I donít think I would have had the courage to put myself out there and be able to handle what other people have to say about me. Now I feel like I can go to a casting call, take the critique, and work with it to make myself better.
RNO:What are your plans now that you have been eliminated from the show? Do you still want to continue modeling or are you ready for something else?
Bianca: I do plan on putting myself out there and going to some castings. Iím actually talking with IMG Models right now, as well as Elite, so weíll have to see what happens from there, but I do have my fingers crossed!
RNO: What are your other plans in case modeling doesnít end up being the road you choose?
Bianca: You always have to have a plan B. I do plan on continuing to go to school and take some independent classes. Iím still going to school for physical therapy, so thatís always a possibility as well, if modeling doesnít end up working for me in the long run.
RNO: Is there anything you would like to add or say to fans of the show?
Bianca: I just really want to thank everyone for the support. Donít believe everything that you see on the TV because you have to remember that there is editing involved, and itís not always exactly the way it happened. I had a blast though, and you havenít seen the last of me!
RNO: Thanks, Bianca!
