sat with judge Drew Elliot to talk about that final nerve-wracking challenge, as well as how she started her business at such a young age and how being a New Yorker helped her do so well, but not well enough, in the competition.
Quiz: Which America's Next Top Model Contestant Are You?>>>
As America's Next Top Model
fans know, Tatiana has her own business producing and selling skin care products. It is something she started when she was just 21 years old but Tatiana doesn't really see this as a remarkable achievement. "It doesn't occur to me that is something that was hard to do," she explained. "I just thought of something I wanted to do and I googled things and I figured it out. I'm still figuring it out along the way but you just have to put your mind on what you want to do."
When Drew Elliott told Tatiana that he believes she did so well in the competition because of her "New York edge," the contestant didn't disagree. "Being a New Yorker, like you said, we do have that drive and that push. In our daily lives we have to go through so much just to get to work," the runner-up explained. "So being in a competition I was just there breezing through it ... I don't know. I'm just used to challenges."
Of course Tatiana's drive didn't allow her to win it all. Tatiana didn't give a reason why she thought she lost but she did discuss in length the final challenge. The nerves really got to Tatiana at the final moments of the competition. "Final runway was insane," she said.
"It was really nerve-wracking," she continued. "I'm the type of person where I put my nerves away until the last moment. I'll be fine in holding or right before panel but as soon as I walk out and see you guys, I'm like 'Hey! (laughs) I'm nervous now!' I feel like I have a good front and I can play it off but it when it came to final runway there was no playing it off. You're surrounded by people and cameras and this and that."
Do you think nerves are what caused Tatiana to lose? Was there another factor? Did the right model win at the end? Should Tatiana have even been in the final two?
