Model reject Rachelle Henry
Rachelle Henry is still determined to make it as a model despite being eliminated from 'Britain's Next Top Model' last night (19.07.10)
Rachelle Henry is still determined to make it as a model.
The 19-year-old beauty was the latest wannabe to be eliminated from 'Britain's Next Top Model' in last night's (19.07.10) show but despite her setback, Rachelle is confident she will have success one day.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I'm at university at the moment, I'm in my first year at Bournemouth, and I've always said university is my plan B. Once I've finished my degree I do plan to focus entirely on modelling."
Rachelle was eliminated after a shoot for luxury jewellery firm Links of London but she felt the decision was unfair because she hadn't really been criticised by the judges and host Elle Macpherson.
She said: "I don't think it was justified - not in a bigheaded way - but if you base the elimination on the criticisms I received and how good the pictures were. I mean mine weren't fantastic but they definitely weren't the worse.
"I knew I probably wouldn't win but I think I should have stayed longer."
Rachelle felt she may have been penalised because she didn't show as much emotion as the other girls.
She said: "I think it was because, maybe because I didn't cry - I'm quite calm, don't get too excited or over emotional so maybe they thought I didn't want it as much as the others but that's not the case."
Although she was disappointed to leave, Rachelle was full of praise for supermodel Elle, saying: "Elle was great, really supportive of all of us and gave us good advice."
