INTERVIEW: Brooke Miller talks about 'America's Next Top Model 7'
By Belinda Trotter, 10/30/2006
Brooke Miller is the sixth contestant to lose a chance at becoming America’s Next Top Model. As promised, we have an exclusive interview with Brooke as she reveals her experience in the house, why she gave up everything to be in the competition and what happens after you are eliminated from the house. Read on...
Q: At the elimination ceremony and in your exit interview you said that you have up everything to be in the competition. What did you mean and what did you give up?
A: I left in the middle of my senior year of high school and missed my prom, the graduation and just soaking up the last few moments of high school life. I had to take a major test to finish school because I was still missing one credit. In the end I was frustrated but I have no regrets.
Q: In the beginning of the season you had to pose nude in front of many people. Were you uncomfortable?
A: It was very uncomfortable. Once I let my fears go, it was liberating. There were many people on set, makeup, hair, stylist, but I was glad I experience it.
Q: What was your best and worst shoot?
A: The hair wars shoot was so cheesy. Why would someone ever want a photo like that? I cannot see an agent wanting to see that type of photo. My hair was gigantic. I had a red, white and blue flag surrounding my entire face. My best shoot was the celebrity couple photo. I had so much fun.
Q: In the last shoot with Fabio, you choked. Why? You had the easiest body part to hold… his leg. What happened?
A: Jay told me behind the scene that I did well with the Fabio shoot, but they did not show that part on television.
Q: You are the only one to get along with Monique. You seem to be the only one who checked in on her when she was sick. What type of relationship did you have with her?
A: We started off as good friends from the very beginning of the competition. I don’t know what happened after we got in the house. She drove me crazy, but when someone is sick, you cannot turn your back.
Q: Did you like your makeover and did you keep the look?
A: I loved my makeover. Since I am a natural blonde it was hard to keep the look and I started looking crazy when my hair started growing back.
Q: Since you were eliminated the day of your graduation, did the show fly you home ASAP so that you could participate in post graduation activities? What will you do after the show?
A: We don’t get to go home right away after the elimination. We have to stick around for a few weeks and are isolated from the girls. I am going to the University of Texas to major in broadcasting.
Q: What would you like to say to your fans and would you do a television competition again?
A: I like to say to the fans thank you for your love and support. I don’t have a website at the moment. They make you take all sites down before the show. I would do it again because I was able to meet great girls, however, I would not do reality TV.
We wish Brooke good luck in her undergraduate studies in broadcasting. She says that when she gets one semester under her belt, she would like to live in New York City to continue pursing a career in modeling.
