America’s Next Top Model Contestant Chlea Tells All — “At Least I Got 22 Inches of Hair!”
This season of America’s Next Top Model is taking it to the next level, having both men and women smizing it out to see who’s gonna be on top. Unfortunately, each week someone has to go home, and the second week saw the exit of the only fiercely real model, Chlea, who headed home after just two weeks of competition.
Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Chlea after her elimination and spoke with her about her feud with judge Kelly Cutrone, her amazing makeover, and her not-so-sexy photo shoot with Marvin.
Check out the interview and hit the comments to share your thoughts on Chlea’s elimination.
Wetpaint Entertainment: During the first week you got into an epic argument with Kelly Cutrone, but squashed it this week. What are your thoughts on her now?
Chlea: I mean, I feel like me and her squashed our problems, I guess. So I have no beef with her. She’s fine. She makes her money and I make mine, so I’m happy.
Bryanboy said your social media score had gone down a lot, do you think your feud with Kelly had an effect on that at all?
I don’t know, possibly.
This week was makeovers! How did that whole process go and just how happy were you with your transformation?
Oh, the makeover was super fun. I was so excited when I found out what I was going to be getting done to my hair.
Yeah, you made the comment that now that you got the hair it was OK to be eliminated, was there any truth in that or were you just joking?
Oh yeah! It was just humor. When I said that comment, of course it was true. I’m a positive person, and no matter what the outcome was going to be, you know what I mean? At least I got to do this. I said something like that the first week, too, when we were going down the building. I said, “Even if I leave now, at least I got to walk down a building. That’s super fun and I never got to do that before.” So at least I got 22 inches of hair, you know what I mean?
What was it like working with Marvin during the sexy photo shoot — especially since he has no game at all.
OMG, Marvin was so nervous to do that shoot. Before we even started, I was trying to make him feel calm because he said he was nervous. But I mean, other than that, it was fine. He was in a bed with 2 girls, he didn’t know what to do or how to act.
Tell us the truth: Did Marvin’s breath stink?
That’s so funny, one of my best friends said that same thing. I mean, everyone at so many of those white candies, man, nobody’s breath stunk. It was not his breath, it was nobody’s breath. If you’re like, leaving the club and you meet somebody that you’re interested in or you’re not interested in and they’re trying so hard and it’s just not working. You’re just like, man, I feel bad but it’s like I’ve got to go through with this because it’s already started.
Bianca worked with Marvin last week and got eliminated and you got eliminated this week after working with him. Is Marvin the kiss of death?
No, I don’t think that. I just think it was Bianca’s time, then it was my time, and it’ll be someone else’s time next week. I’m not going to stress it.
What was it like being in the bottom 2 with Don? Did you think you had a shot to stay in the competition or did you know you were going home?
Oh, I knew I was going home, but I thought it was funny being in the bottom 2 with Don because he was crying and I was laughing. I was trying to tell him to stop crying, but you know, he just wanted to cry. I said, “Don, you’re going to stay. I’m going home.” And he said, “Nah, man. You don’t know that.” And I was like, “Yes I do.”
Who’s the hottest guy in the house?
Mike is super cute. I think Mike is fine.
What’s next for you?
I’m definitely always working on something. I’m just tyring to focus on myself. I’m trying to get this clothing line put together, so at this moment, that’s what I’m working on.
What are you taking away from the experience?
I learned so much from Tyra, so I’m definitely gaining so much knowledge from Tyra and the contestants. One of the things that Tyra taught me was that when taking a picture, the girl always has to look good. Don’t let the man overpower you in the picture.
