Tatiana Eliminated from UPN's "America's Next Top Model"

[via press release from UPN]


Tatiana, a waitress from Makawao, Hawaii, became the eighth girl eliminated from the fourth cycle of UPN's hit series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL, reducing the pool from seven to six.

This week, "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent/anchor Jann Carl taught the remaining contestants how to deal with the media. The girls discovered this lesson was harder than it looked when they faced Jann�s constructive criticism following the exercise of interviewing each other. The next day, the girls were surprised to learn that they would each interview superstar rapper/actor/designer Eve in a media challenge. Tatiana thought she aced this challenge, but Carl didn�t agree, and named Christina the winner.

Later, the girls had another difficult photo shoot, this time set in a local cemetery. The girls were transformed to represent the Seven Deadly Sins and were lowered into an open grave for dramatic high fashion photos. Tatiana had a hard time getting in character as the deadly sin Greed. �I�m kinda finding this sin a little difficult to convert into, because I�m not a greedy person.� Photographer Johann Wolf was not impressed by Tatiana�s efforts, commenting after the shoot, �On Tatiana�s shoot there wasn�t a lot of dimension�I think she could have pushed it a little further.�

During the week�s elimination panel, the girls were challenged to keep their cool while acting as spokesmodels at a press conference promoting a fictional AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL fashion line. The judges, including guest judge Johann Wolf, bombarded the girls with prying personal questions and outrageous gossip that seemed to make Tatiana nervous and uncomfortable. During judging, Janice remarked to Tatiana, �As a spokesperson, you were showing us a very boring side of you.�

After the girls left the room, the judges determined that although Tatiana was beautiful and photogenic, she lacked the poise necessary to become AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL. After her elimination, Tatiana commented, �This competition meant a lot to me�I just wish I had gone further. I know that I take gorgeous pictures, I just can�t really handle myself when I get nervous.�

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") and Anthony Dominici ("The Amazing Race").

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.
