Brandy Eliminated from UPN's 'America's Next Top Model'

[via press release from UPN]

BRANDY ELIMINATED FROM UPN'S "AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL"

Brandy, a cosmetology student from Houston, became the third girl eliminated from the fourth cycle of UPN's hit series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL, reducing the pool from 12 girls to 11.

After learning about movement and poise from ballet instructor Stefan Wenta, the twelve girls met up with modeling legend Beverly Johnson to discuss their potential careers as fashion divas. The girls had the opportunity to ask Johnson candid questions about the modeling industry, including Brandy, who inquired about whether attitude is important to be a successful model.

Later, the girls were directed to a tennis court for a photo shoot with photographer Alex Reznik. They were unaware that this shoot was a test to see how well they maintained their composure under pressure. Alex was instructed to be rude and overly harsh towards them, while Jay Manuel secretly watched from behind the scenes. Most of the girls showed signs of frustration, but Brandy�s negative energy continued to cause problems. As the photo shoot was nearing its conclusion, a comment made by Tatiana caused an already aggravated Brandy to loose her cool and lash out. �Brandy needs to keep the toughness inside, but look like a soft, supple model on the outside,� Jay commented.

The next morning, Tyra prepped the girls for their Warnaco Inc. calendar shoot, where each girl would represent a sign of the zodiac. Brandy once again became impatient while waiting for her turn in front of the camera, and she had a difficult time modeling in the harness and elaborate scorpion costume. �I just wish Brandy could take command of that harness�like a scorpion would,� Jay commented after the shoot.

During the next evening�s elimination ceremony, the judges viewed the photographs from the tennis court challenge and the zodiac calendar. �It�s this great personality that got you here, and what�s going to send you home is the negative attitude,� Tyra said to Brandy before viewing her pictures. Although many of the girls expressed great frustration throughout the week, it was Brandy�s continued anger that eliminated her from the running to become AMERICA�S NEXT TOP MODEL.

The winner of UPN's AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL will have the opportunity to be managed by Ford Models. She will also receive a $100,000 contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl. Finally, the winner will appear in a fashion spread in Elle magazine.

The fourth installment of UPN's hit dramality series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL follows 14 young women as they attempt to prove they have what it takes to make it in the high-stress, high-stakes world of modeling. Banks, who created the show, also serves as executive producer along with Ken Mok ("Making the Band"). Anthony Dominici ("The Amazing Race") serves as co-executive producer.

AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL airs Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN. For more information about AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL log on to www.upn.com.
