Rissikat Oyebade found Elle Macpherson didn't open up much to her when she had the opportunity to have a one-on-one with her on 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model'
Rissikat Oyebade didn't find Elle Macpherson to be "warm" when she met her on 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model'.
The contestant - who was eliminated from the show last night (17.09.12) - admits she was nervous when she won the opportunity to have a one-on-one meeting with the legendary model, and while she found her inspiring she did not think she opened up too much.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I had a one on one with Elle and I was really nervous, I didn't know what to do. I would say she was not warm, but you feel, that she's ... she has so much experience and the whole lifestyle, she's so busy, she's a real businesswoman.
"She was nice, she's just not the kind of person who is really warm around you."
Rissikate is disappointed to have not made it to the end of the show, and regrets not giving "100 per cent" when modelling in the various tasks.
She added: "I have regrets because I think I didn't give 100 per cent of myself. I auditioned four times for the show and on the fourth time I actually got it - I would have expected myself to push really hard, but once I was in the house, I don't know what happened, I just relaxed a little bit.
"I forgot why I was there. Then in the middle I thought, 'No, I have to push harder'."
