Interview with Bre from Cycle 5 of America’s Next Top Model

America’s Next Top Model fans stay tuned!  Cycle 6 is right around the corner.  In the meantime check out the scoop o n the last three standing competitors of Cycle 5.  Beautiful Bre was the first of the last three to go home.  But she is still a # 1 stunna in our eyes!

Hi Bre.  Congratulations for making the final three!

Thank you!

Did you know it would be you to go?

I knew that they didn’t like my picture that much.  I also knew that I had a really bad commercial.  I pretty much had an idea that I was going home and I had already prepared myself for it.  So when Tyra didn’t call my name I was okay with it.  I have to be more appreciative than anything else.

You did great o n that impromptu chocolate commercial at panel so it surprised me to see you struggle with the commercial for Cover Girl.

Thats what happens when you see the first take.  Don’t think that I did awful the entire time.  That is what they chose to show.

It’s all about the editing huh?

It’s all about it.  No worries though.

Do you think that Tyra came down hard o n your for the red bull incident?

I don’t think that she came down hard o n me.  If she knew what happened in the house everybody would have gotten it the same.  If she knew that Lisa had peed in a diaper Lisa would have gotten it the same.  Whatever was going o n in the house it must have been “something” because it made it all the way into the elimination room. It went from the house to the photo shoot to the elimination room so it needed to be addressed and stopped right there.  As well as give a lesson o n retaliation.

If you could do anything different what would it be?

Honestly I don’t think that I would have done anything differently except buy another box of granola bars.  That way if someone would have eaten them then I would not have cared.

What girls are you still in touch with?

I am still in touch with Nicole, Nik and Jayla.  Every o nce in a while I talk to Coryn.  I would love to keep in contact with Kim.  Every o nce in a while I speak to Ebony also.

What was your favorite photo shoot?
My favorite shoot would be the o ne in black and white.  The o ne that Tyra did with Vaseline.  It gave me an edgy and raw look.  It definitely added versatility to my look in the competition instead of them always thinking that I am “commercial”.  It gave me more of a high fashion, editorial model look.

Will you continue to pursue modeling?

Absolutely!  Right now I am looking for an agency.  But I am looking for a home also.  I am looking for an agency that can represent me the way that I need to be represented as far as being a positive image to teenagers and appeal to adults also.  I am looking for that.  I am also looking for endorsements.  I would love to do beauty, hair and make up.  I am looking for a lot right now so hopefully I can find something that can accommodate me.

What is your advice to anybody going into a competition like this?

My advice would be more self-related o nly because I can o nly speak for what I have done.  The thing that worked the best for me was to really be myself.  I struggled a little bit with the judges as far as my accent and my aggression.  Just me being a New Yorker.  It wasn’t necessarily where I was from in New York but mostly just being a New Yorker.  I kept that because it added a little flavor to me and my whole style.  I continued to be myself and even though I didn’t win I made it 13 episodes, I did a wonderful job and I have a great portfolio.  So, it must have been something positive.  That is the best advice I can give other people is to just be themselves.

Any last words or shout outs?

No words or shout outs but I want to thank you for this interview.

My pleasure Bre – take care and good luck!
