The Cycle 16 premiere of America's Next Top Model airs tonight on the CW, and one contestant is already biting her nails in anticipation of how she'll be portrayed on the show. South Carolina native, Molly O'Connell grew up on James Island, and admits that she was a little overwhelmed by the scale of ANTM production in person.
"It was much more than I expected," she confesses. "After watching it for so many years, you don't realize how much goes into it."
Indeed, as Nigel pointed out, there are girls on this cycle who have been watching the show since they were 11 or 12 years old. Says Molly of her big debut, "I'll be excited to see myself on TV. I know my parents are going to cry. I had fun, and I was myself. I don't regret that, but we'll see how everything looks on TV." She adds with a touch of hesitancy, "I'll tell you if I regret it a little later on."
Stay tuned to the CW tonight to see which Top Model niche this homegrown, Southern gal gets edited into.
