Brooke Theis admits it was terrifying presenting her case to Naomi Campbell on Monday night's episode (28.10.13) of 'The Face'
'The Face' contestant Brooke Theis says it takes "balls" to stand in front of Naomi Campbell.
The model hopeful was sent packing by the legendary supermodel on last night's episode (28.10.13) of the Sky Living HD show and admits facing Naomi to fight for her right to stay in the competition was a terrifying experience.
Brooke exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I think Erin O'Connor put it particularly well saying Naomi is a force to be reckoned with! It takes a lot of balls to stand in front of Naomi and argue why you should stay. Out of respect, you shouldn't disagree with Naomi because she knows what she's talking about.
"She has this very powerful presence that everyone around her is aware of. You really, really want her to like you. I'm quite proud of how I did in the elimination room, I didn't crumble and I didn't cry!"
The 19-year-old beauty doesn't think her exit was unfair, however, and believes it was only a matter of time before rival mentors Naomi and Erin evened out the score and sent a member of Team Caroline home following their three consecutive wins.
Brooke said: "We all knew that Naomi wanted to split up Team Caroline. It's a competition, we all want to win. I think. The mentors are bound to have strategy. I don't think it was unfair.
"It's never nice to lose a girl, no matter what team she's on. We're all living together in a house a lot of the drama was about losing a friend. The tension was palpable!"
The English student formed a close bond with mentor Caroline Winberg and had nothing but praise for the Swedish Victoria's Secret model.
She enthused: "Caroline was like a big sister. She gave us all really good advice on all aspects of being a model. What I think is most important is she stressed how essential a good attitude is. I think Team Caroline proved that with our three consecutive wins."
'The Face' airs Mondays at 9pm on Sky Living HD.
