On Thursday, the 26-year-old who previously appeared on Top Model's fifth season, talked to Reality TV World about her America's Next Top Model experience -- including what her reaction was when she got paired up with Alexandria Everett for the bar fight photo shoot, how she felt about all the drama that transpired in the house and whether she just had Bianca Golden's back during the arguments because they're sisters, and what her goals are for the near future now that her Top Model run is over.

Below is the second half of our exclusive interview with Bre. Click here to read the first portion.  

Reality TV World: It seemed like you and Alexandria got along really well both before and after your photo shoot challenge together. What was your initial reaction when you got partnered up with her and how do you think it all ended up working out?

Bre Scullark: I really, really love Alex. You guys get to see a portion of our personalities on TV, but she's just so fun and passionate and charismatic, and I just really like her. So, to get paired up with her, I just thought it was great. I always wanted to work with her.

If you see this girl's [modeling] comp card -- if you ever see this girl's comp card or her portfolio, she is stunning and she moves well. It didn't work out last night, but it doesn't mean that she's a bad model. I'm not a bad model. It just was a bad shot.

Reality TV World: The show made it seem like you gave the charity flag football game your all. Did you channel some type of inner-athlete there or something or would you say you just got extremely competitive in the moment?

Bre Scullark: I thought to myself, "When are you ever going to play flag football again?" Never. So, I figured I would have a great time and just -- I really wanted to mirror real athletes, because it would probably never happen again. So, I was just like, "Let's just do it." And I just went for it and I committed 100% percent.

Reality TV World: Your Blue team won the game but you didn't win the actual photo shoot portion of the challenge, so were you disappointed in that outcome especially since you took it kind of seriously and tried really hard?

Bre Scullark: No, I didn't take it too seriously, but [Kayla Ferrel] won and listen, here's the thing, you want to have a good time. We didn't want to take it too serious and Kayla's amazing, she really is though.

So, it was fine. I don't know if they showed it, but Kayla was teamed off with me and she would attack me. I never saw it coming from this little girl. I really didn't. She really tackled me hard. I had bite marks and scratch marks, go ahead. She deserved to win!

Reality TV World: The drama in last week's episode was very intense between your sister Bianca and many of the other girls, including Lisa D'Amato and Shannon Stewart especially. Viewers saw very little about how that whole thing actually got started, so could you elaborate a little bit on what happened there and what sparked the arguing?

Bre Scullark: Oh man, it was so long ago who knows. You know how it started? [Tyra Banks] decided to put 14 girls in a house together. That's where it first went wrong -- too many big personalities in one house. Somebody's bound to clash.

Reality TV World: It became clear that you took Bianca's side when the others were conspiring against her, hoping she would quit the competition. You always stood in front of her and tried to end fights before they started when she and some other girls were beginning to go at it. So, would you say you agreed with Bianca and was on her side in those fights in that you felt she was right in the situation most of the time, or was it just a matter of you having your sister's back no matter what whether you agreed with her or not?

Bre Scullark: I think I was just being consistent to our relationship. Bianca and I, when we're not on a show competing, we're good friends. I wanted to make sure going into the house that we were consistent with what makes our relationship work. One of the things is us having each other's backs.

Now it doesn't mean that I agree or disagree with her behavior, because she's her own person, but I respect Bianca for who she is -- which is why we really don't get into all these different arguments -- because you've just got to respect people for who they are. I respect Lisa for who she is and all her crazy tactics.

I just respect people and even when I don't agree or disagree with your personality or whatever, I just always respect people for who they are. In that situation, I thought that what was most important was that we all stayed focus and we kept positivity around us, because we have to live with each other -- which is very different than working with someone and then going home to your own space.

Reality TV World: Did all of that drama frustrate you since you were unintentionally involved in it and did it affect your modeling or attitude in the competition? Because it seemed like for the most part, the other girls really liked you and felt it was unfortunate or bad for you that you always got put into the middle of things.

Bre Scullark: I think that a lot of people felt bad for me because they know how quiet and positive I like to be, especially in the morning. I mean, if you're going to fight we could probably do it in the afternoon or something, but I don't like to start my day off with negativity because I just feel like it sets the tone for the rest of the day.

I don't like drama, I really don't anymore. I'm just at a different point in my life, but I came into Top Model knowing that the things that could make things possible were probably going to be taken away from me like silence or sleeping in.

So, I just kind of accepted it for what it was, but did I feel like it hurt me in the competition? Absolutely not. It can never hurt you. It could hurt somebody else, but it could only help to bring you up.

Reality TV World: What was your reaction when LaToya Jackson decided to not eliminate anyone during last week's episode? Were you glad she made that decision or were you a little upset knowing that the competition wasn't going to get any smaller and the following week would be just as difficult?

Bre Scullark: I thought it was sweet. I thought LaToya, I think her not sending anyone home, really kind of described her personality. She's just so sweet and non-confrontational and positive. I wasn't surprised when she didn't, that's for sure.

Reality TV World: Most of the other girls I have interviewed said they found no differences between their first season on Top Model in comparison to the all-stars edition. Isis King, for example, felt the competition was still strictly about modeling although the all-stars version claimed it would be all about branding and finding the total package. What are your thoughts on that? Do you think the all-stars version lived up to what it was promoted to be? Did you go into the show thinking it was one thing and then discovered otherwise?

Bre Scullark: I think that it was exactly -- it was definitely different this time around for me. I think I went in thinking about myself and I went in and I learned to brand -- things I could grow and learn from as a girlfriend. So, for me, it was a lot different and it was a lot different for me because I'm a lot different.

Reality TV World: What exactly were you doing before appearing on this season of Top Model and why did you originally want to go on the All-Stars edition? What were your goals and do you feel you accomplished them?

Bre Scullark: Well before Top Model aired, I moved to LA about two-and-a-half years ago and so, I wanted to go back on the show so that I could have closure. Do you know what I mean? My first time on the cycle, I really felt that I didn't have enough experience. I was still dealing with a lot of different things from my profession, and honestly, I didn't win.

And so to come back and have the opportunity to show the judges that I really take stuff seriously and I really worked hard to be a professional model and to be able to show them that, I felt it would definitely help me in the competition. But those are my reasons for coming back -- just to find some type of closure, whatever that was -- winning or just trying again.

Reality TV World: What are your plans for the near future? What's next for you?

Bre Scullark: I'm really excited about -- I've got a new sitcom coming out with Tyler Perry called For Better or For Worse and that will air on Thanksgiving Day, I believe. And then my Garnier Fructis commercial imprint ad will be around a little bit longer.

We just renegotiated that and I just wrapped up my Old Navy holiday commercial, which comes out this holiday season, so that's exciting. And of course, I have CSI coming out thanks to the show. So, I've definitely got some things coming and I'm excited about it.
