Whitney Winner of Americas Next Top Model

Today we participated in a conference call for Americas Next Top Model where Whitney Thompson, a 20 year old student from Atlantic Beach, FL was the Winner of the 10th season of Top Model. Here’s what she had to say:

Q. How did you end up on the show?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): Actually I was with my cousin one day and she was talking about her diet and I realized that I needed to do this to show people that full figured women can compete in this industry too.

Q. Who were you most concerned about being your biggest competition?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): I would have to say that Anya was my biggest competition.

Q. What went through your mind when you saw your picture come up as the winner?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): I was incredibly surprised.

Q. What the most challenging part of the competition?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): The fact that I didn’t have a support system. I wasn’t able to talk to family and friends to help me. Though the hair and makeup artists gave us so much advice and were so supportive.

Q. There are a lot of rumors floating around that you are not a proper role model, what are your thoughts?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): I just tried to be myself. I am not fake, I am pretty raw and realistic. The rumors I have heard are pretty funny, but I can’t do anything but work my butt off to prove to everyone. The best revenge is living well.

Q. What about the comment that Fatima made about you not representing plus sized models well?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): Just because you are a plus sized model doesn’t mean you are fat and weigh 300 pounds. Do many people don’t understand and she doesn’t understand the subject. Why is society saying size 8 plus is a plus sized model. I am plus sized and I look good. A regular model is usually a size 2-4 and I am a size 10, so I would consider myself full figured.

Q. Did you make any good friends while you were in the house?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): Anya is one of my best friends I made in the house and also Marvita, Stacy Ann and Claire.

Q. Do you have any tips for people trying out for the show?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): I went to the auditions and Atlanta and watched everyone speaking softly and without a lot of energy. I spoke like I was excited and they really liked the confidence.

Q. What are your plans now?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): I am the only plus sized model at Elite currently, so I am trying to do everything. I am really confident and I will have a successful career. I will try not to turn down any offer. My dream job would be to be on the front cover of Vogue or anything in Vogue.

Q. What was your favorite and least favorite photo shoot?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): The final Covergirl shoot was my favorite. I would have to say my least favorite shoot was the beef one. The smell was so bad.

Q. Is there anything you want to say to your fans?

A. Whitney, (Americas Next Top Model): Thank you, I am so incredibly appreciative. Also check me out on FaceBook http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1020138300
