ELIMINATED FROM "AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL" ON THE CW

October 26, 2006 (Burbank, CA) -- Brooke, a student from Keller, Texas, was the sixth girl eliminated during the seventh cycle of The CW's hit dramality series "America's Next Top Model," reducing the pool from 8 girls to 7.

Tyra surprised the girls in their backyard with an impromptu black and white photo shoot where the girls were asked to express anger while maintaining their sex appeal. While many of the girls thrived, Brooke found it difficult. "Being younger is sometimes a little bit overwhelming. I don't have the experience that these girls have," Brooke said.

The next day, the girls were taught about the fundamentals of being sexy by burlesque entertainer Dita Von Teese. Dita encouraged the girls to be confident as she gave each girl a prop to perform a seductive dance, and noticed that Brooke seemed the most nervous to be sexy. "I have to be seductive and sexy and that's not something I normally am. I felt totally uncomfortable," Brooke said.

The following day, the girls met with the director of Elite Model Management Cathy Gould, who threw a party where the girls were the main course. Each girl strutted down the dining room table, and though several of the girls struggled with the unique challenge, Cathy was not convinced by Brooke's performance. "I had to focus the whole time on staying engaged and not on how uncomfortable I was," Brooke said. In the end, Melrose won the challenge and chose Brooke, Michelle and Amanda to join her in a photo shoot for an editorial spread in Seventeen Magazine.

To test their new knowledge on the fine line between sexy and sleazy, Jay Manuel met the girls for a fashion shoot depicting romance novels with model Fabio. Brooke was asked to depict "desperately holding on to her man," but Jay was not impressed with her performance, and even Fabio noticed that her inexperience showed. "I walk into the room, and I'm a little bit nervous to be honest," Brooke said.

During the judging, Nigel commented that he was still getting more of a "pageant" feel from Brooke. Though the judges loved Brooke's personality, they weren't sure she had the potential to become a model. On the night of her high school graduation, Brooke was eliminated from the race to become "America's Next Top Model."

In addition to a $100,000 contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl, this year's prize package for the winner of The CW's "America's Next Top Model" will include a contract with Elite Model Management and a cover and six-page fashion spread in Seventeen magazine.

Making its debut on The CW, the seventh cycle of the dramality series "America's Next Top Model" follows 13 young women as they attempt to prove they have what it takes to make it in the high-stress 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 The CW. For more information about "America's Next Top Model" log on to http://www.cwtv.com/.
