America’s Next Top Model Cycle 15: Exclusive Interview with Rhianna

Last night, on America’s Next Top Model, the girls competed in a photo shoot, posing with sea creatures underneath a panel full of water, filmed by renowned photographer Matthew Rolston. In panel, the judges felt that Rhianna looked too relaxed for their liking and she was eliminated. Today, we spoke to her in an exclusive interview about her rivalry with Ann, her inspiration when posing, and what lies ahead for this aspiring model.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: What made you decide to try out for America’s Next Top Model? Have you watched previous cycles?
A. Rhianna: I was watching some of the new cycles. The casting was really close to my house this time and it never is. I went out and said, “Hey, what the heck? Maybe I’ll get picked or something,” and I did.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: Was modeling something you were always interested in doing?
A. Rhianna: I’ve always wanted to model. I’ve always gotten lots of magazine subscriptions at one time and keeping up on everything that is new and I like.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: Your personality seemed very laid back. What was it like living in a house with other girls who can be quite loud at times?
A. Rhianna: It got really loud at nighttime. I really enjoyed it because everyone was so different and most of us worked well together as a group of competing girls that all want the same thing. It was a fun. I have a lot of good memories.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: Who do you stay in touch with?
A. Rhianna: We actually all talk but I always talk to Lexie, Jane, and Esther.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: You mentioned that Ann was your biggest competition in the house. Did you have a friendship with her or did you not speak to her much?
A. Rhianna: She was the closest one to me. She was my direct competition and I knew that but that didn’t affect our friendship. We had a great time. We were little pranksters!

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: Of the photo shoots you participated in, which was your favorite and why?
A. Rhianna: My favorite was my fallen angel one because it was on beautiful, Malibu beach. We hung out all day with beautiful boys. I’m so happy about the model that I got. I heard they got to choose us so I was like, “Oh my gosh! So hot!”

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: At casting, you were remembered for your creative posing, and cited nature as a big inspiration for you. What aspects of nature do you find most inspiring?
A. Rhianna: Really, everything about nature. Trees are amazing. They’re natural models. Animals are amazing. The sky is always been close to my mind, I guess… just how everything changes and looks different. It defies everything that mankind has to offer.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: Which judge was your favorite?
A. Rhianna: I think that Tyra was my favorite. Diane von Furstenberg was very eloquent and composed. She was a beautiful soul.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: What’s coming up next for you?
A. Rhianna: I’m gonna go around and shop agencies. Hopefully, I’ll get picked up by somebody awesome.
