Rhianna Atwood Interview with ET Online (Sept 2010)

October 4, 2010

In September of 2010, ET Online interviewed Cycle 15‘s Rhianna Atwood following her elimination and appearance on the show. Here is the text from the interview (written and posted by ET Online Writing Staff):

‘America’s Next Top Model’ Rhianna: I Could Have Been More Dramatic

It was a real roller coaster ride on Wednesday night’s “America’s Next Top Model” when the aspiring models were taken to Knott’s Berry Farm to ride a 140-foot high, thrill-a-minute ride and were asked to pose while on it. Then, they were photographed as gorgeous mermaids by Matthew Rolston, who was also this week’s guest judge. Rhianna survived the roller coaster, but after the judges conferred, she was out. Now, ET talks to the ousted model about her time on the show and her plans going forward.

ET: Do you think there was something you could have done different that would have kept you in the competition when you look back at it?

Rhianna: I guess been more dramatic. I didn’t have much to say that captured their attention.

ET: You seemed to have had a very positive attitude about all the challenges. Didn’t that count for anything?

Rhianna: I was in a dream world the whole time it seemed like. It seemed like everyone was somewhat not in their element and I was completely enthralled with all of the things I had around me.

ET: There was some concern that your look might be limited. What are your thoughts about that?

Rhianna: I think that is just one of many [opinions] that might be expressed about the way I look, but it doesn’t really matter to me. I take all the constructive criticism I can, but telling me I am not versatile is not helpful. It is just an opinion. I definitely take it in hand, but I definitely don’t agree.

ET: Will you continue to pursue modeling?

Rhianna: Oh, yeah. This is the first step off to a new land of happiness and traveling and meeting amazing people. It is a dream job.

ET: You get to keep your photos from the show, so it makes a nice portfolio for you to start with. Have you met with any agencies yet?

Rhianna: I am still owned by the agency that is on the show for like a week. I can’t really go agency hunting for like a week.

ET: Which was your favorite photo shoot and why?

Rhianna: My favorite photo shoot was the fallen angels because we were at the beach and it was a gorgeous day and there were so many amazing visual … we had so much visual stimulation, it was almost impossible for me to take it into a place where I couldn’t make a good photo. And the male models were super hot. I was just lovin’ it.

ET: What do you think of what happened at the “Top Model” live show in Australia when the wrong girl was named the winner?

Rhianna: That was so bad. I felt so bad for that girl. Oh, my God. To be that announcer. I would have died.

ET: I think she was fed the wrong name…

Rhianna: I know, but to have to say : “I am sorry I messed up.”
