Madeleine Taga gambled on this evening’s Broken Doll Shoot on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model and unfortunately it didn’t pay off and she was booted out of the competition. We caught up with her to talk about life in the house..
Did you think you were unlucky to go last night?
Unlucky? That’s a bad word.. Yeah it was my time to go.
So you thought you would be going as soon as you realised you were in the bottom two with Roxy?
Oh yeah I knew long before then that I was going. Little things that the judges threw at us and when Elle came over to the house and Julian made a few remarks, I knew from then I would be going.
So how did it feel to be in the bottom two with Roxy?
I knew that I was going, but I was surprised that she was in the bottom two, because she was one of the girls with the most potential..
She obviously had a poor week..
Did she? What happened? I wasn’t even paying attention..
Well the judges didn’t think much of her shoot..
Clearly, but I was just concentrating on my shoot to be honest, I didn’t pay attention to anyone else. I was surprised that she was in the bottom two though, because she has everything going for her; the looks, the body. She could have had a better attitude, instead of crying about her baby all the time.
You had a hard time in the competition with some of the other models. Who were you closest to?
Rizzicat. She’s just really cool, she was just how I expected a British girl to be like. I didn’t expect British girls to be so judgemental, so closed-minded and Rizzikat was what I thought a young British girl should be like. No matter what you threw at her, she didn’t care..
You were very brave with your choice of poses in the broken doll shoot, why do you think the judges didn’t like what you went for?
Thankyou! You can’t please everybody, I chose to go for it, it’s just a shame the picture wasn’t the best. But I would never have chosen the safe option because a model should try and do new things that have never been done before. Thanks for saying I was brave!
No probs! Now you spoke you’re mind in the house and were very honest, do you think that annoyed a few of the other girls?
Yeah I think sometimes that’s why I didn’t get on with some of the girls. Because they felt better not speaking their minds to me and I don’t know why that was. I just thought ‘You’re in Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model! What are you afraid of – just say what’s on your mind and have fun with it and shake it off!” But some people just couldn’t shake off what I said to them..
If you did it all again, would you do anything different?
I would have enjoyed it twice as much and I would have been more friendly with the girls if I’d have known it was going to be like that. I would also have prepared myself more for the commercial shoot! I’m not really a commercial girl and all we had to do was smile basically. The one shoot we didn’t have to smile was the last shoot!
Who do you think will win the competition?
Well Lisa has the best chance of a modelling career and Roxanne is just behind her..
Who wouldn’t you like see win?
Letitia. It’s not that I don’t get on with her – although I don’t – but I don’t see what she was doing in the competition in the first place.
Were you very surprised by how life was in the house..
Do you guys know what went through every day. You can’t say something off the top of your head because then you have to repeat it ten times. You can’t just get in after the shoot and have a hot bath, you have to repeat everything to everyone! Of course I wasn’t expecting that! (laughs)
Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model continues next Monday at 9pm on Sky Living
