Cycle 3, Ep 6 - Amber's Exit Interview
Describe your Top Model Experience.
Absolutely amazing! Even though it was pretty stressful being there, I’m so glad I did it and got to meet all those wonderful people.
If you could do that final shoot again, what would you do differently?
Probably move a lot more. It always seems a lot easier when you are looking back on something.
Was it strange returning home? How did your family and friends react?
It was good being home again! I think they were a little bit surprised to see me but happy all the same.
Did your experiences in the house change you at all?
I think I have gained confidence from it all. I was terrified before I went up but I am happy with how it went.
Has anyone stopped you in the street or asked you about the show?
A few people. I think the fact that my hair’s a different colour to what it was on the show confuses people a bit.
After making it this far - were you surprised that you didn’t win?
I never really thought I would win. When I auditioned Sara told me I was too quiet for TV.
So what's next for you?
I’m finishing my fashion course and then hopefully next year I’ll do some travelling.
Has your experience made you want to model more, or less?
I want to keep modelling. I still have a lot to learn but I love it.
What was the highlight of the competition?
Meeting so many wonderful people! I love the other girls and they really helped me a lot.
What was your lowest point in the contest?
Probably those last couple of days I was there. It was pretty full on and I think we were all pretty tired at that point.
Who were your favourite and least favourite people in the house?
I loved pretty much all the girls but my most favourite would have to be Brigette, Issy, Yanna and Briana. Least favourite were Tyne and Bianca.
Finally, any last words for the other girls you shared this experience with?
Stay strong and don’t let the criticism get to you.
Any last words for your fans around New Zealand?
Thank you so much for your support!
