America’s Next Top Model Second Runner Up, Eugena Washington, steps Behind The Rope. Checking in from her home in Los Angeles, California, Eugenia is here to tell it all and she DOES - NOT - HOLD - BACK! One day, Eugena saw an “Apply Here” casting call on the CW Website for Cycle Seven of America’s Next Top Model. Always being called a Model in High School, she figured “why not” and sent her application in. That one click of a button led to an open casting call of over 2,000 Model Hopefuls. Over the course of two long days, those 2,000 were narrowed down to 50 and so on and so forth until Tyra Banks and The Executive Producers had their Cycle Seven cast chosen. Months later, she got the fateful call telling her to pack her bags and off to the infamous ANTM Model Apartment she went. As prepared as she thought she was, nothing could prepare Eugena for the reality of filming one of America’s notoriously most pressure filled reality shows. Pressure filled from the other models as well as pressure filled from Producers who Eugena is clear to point out, “were not our friends”. The 16 hour days with no sleep and cameras in your face the second you woke up certainly did not help at all. Eugena explains how she and the other Models were manipulated by Producers to bring the drama, how everything they said could and would be used against them, and how stressful the weekly eliminations were. Eugena also discusses famed Creative DIrector Jay Manuel as well as judges Janice Dickinson, Miss J, Nigel Barker and Twiggy. Finally, we discuss the woman, the myth, the diva, the legend, The One, The Only, Miss Tyra Banks! We are only getting started. Tune in now for Part I of our tell all sit down with Miss Eugena Washington.
