This week on America’s Next Top Model, the contestants were challenged to bring what they’ve learned in the competition into the real world with go-sees and a cover shoot for Paper Magazine. There was one model, however, who couldn’t quite live up to the expectations of the judges.
From the start of the competition, Erin Green was not just a strong contender, she was breaking barriers by being the oldest model in the show’s history. At 42 years old (she’s a grandmother, y’all!) Tyra Banks herself said that Erin was changing the modeling game just by being there and showing other women that beauty is ageless.
And Drew Elliott still thinks Erin is next level fierce, but “We were at the point in the competition where ’Fabulous Erin’ wasn’t enough against the other girls.” But that’s not all that we learn in this interview:
First of all, did you know that Erin auditioned for the very first cycle of Top Model back in 2003 and lied about her age at the time because she was 27 and the age limit was 25.
Then, she tells us that she auditioned for this cycle with her twin sister, but that she was the one who ended up being chosen. That’s gotta make for an awkward Thanksgiving dinner.
And to top it all off, she let us know what it was really like working and living with a bunch of millennial models. “It was a house filled with narcissistic brats and it was all about me, myself, and I. The most irritating part of the entire experience was having to listen to everyone’s stories and them not asking about yours…It was like everyone’s competing with themselves.”
Tune in to America’s Next Top Model on Tuesdays at 8/7c. You never know who will be eliminated next!
