First of all, thanks to all the readers for sending me in their questions for Brittany. You did this interview, since I asked as many questions as I could that were sent into me. Itís hard to get a word in edge-wise when talking to Brittany, but I did my best. Iíll say one thing though Ė this girl is a ball of fire, and was a blast to talk too. Mark my words, we havenít seen the last of Brittany!
RealityNewsOnline: What factored into your decision to apply for the show, and did you send in a tape or go to an open call?
Brittany: I had always said, ever since I was a little girl, that I wanted to be a model or an actress. However, I didnít believe that being on a reality TV show was the way to go. I didnít want to be on Big Brother and then when itís over, try to make that into a modeling or acting career. Then, when I saw that an open call audition was coming near me for Americaís Next Top Model I thought it was perfect since the show dealt with what I wanted to do, and wasnít just for a money prize. Also, I figured people would have a chance to see my personality too, in case I do get into acting. It was the perfect move for me.
RNO: Are you really as wild as you appeared on TV, or did you think you acted out a little more in front of the cameras?
Brittany: Ugh, let me tell you Ė Iím glad they didnít show some of the things that I did. If anything, I think I might have turned it down a little bit when the cameras were around. I mean, I wasnít drunk the whole time I was there, which it kind of looked like, but yeah, I did like to have fun. I donít party all the time, and we were so stressed, so I needed to just be myself.
RNO: Did the judges ever confuse you when would tell you not to show so much personality, then tell you that you weren't showing enough?
Brittany: Ding! Ding! Ding! Yes, that whole thing threw me for a loop and I had no idea what to do. I honestly had no idea what the judges wanted from me. I think the way they kept telling me in the beginning that I was too much, then at the end I wasnít enough Ė it was starting to wear on my confidence. I honestly had no idea what to do half the time because I wasnít sure if I was being too much or too little!
RNO: Do you feel that you might have been unjustly eliminated since you did have a great photo, but didn't stand out during the challenge in front of the judges?
Brittany: A little, yeah. I had great photos, and like I said before, I donít think I understood what they were looking for from me after a point. I didnít know that since I didnít pose well while dancing in front of the judges that it was grounds for dismissal. I honestly thought I was doing quite well, but you canít cry over spilt milk, so what can I do?
RNO: Why do you think everyone is making such a big deal about Keenyah's weight? Did her body really change so much from when the competition began?
Brittany: Well, you know that Keenyah and I are good friends and talk all the time. She did gain some weight, but like she said on the show Ė thatís her way of dealing with stress. Itís not like she became some big cow or was all kinds of freaky fat. We all have a way that we deal with stress, and that was her comforting thing to do Ė eat. All the girls were stressed out, so I donít know.
RNO: Are you a little embarrassed of anything you saw on the show? I'm talking about when you danced on a table in a restaurant, of course!
Brittany: Dancing on the table was fun! We all did it except for Kahlen and Rebecca, and Tiffany and I both said that we were going out that night to have some fun and unwind. Iím not embarrassed at all. Iím sure the people at the restaurant arenít devastated that we danced on their table. Itís not like I pulled a Nicole Ritchie from The Simple Life and poured bleach all over their pool table. It was just a dance on a table for crying out loud!1 2 Next-->
