This morning I had the pleasure of talking with Kerryn, one of two models who were eliminated on last night's Make Me A Supermodel.

Throughout the season Kerryn impressed the judges with her strong runway performances and her stunning photos. Thanks to her strong performances, Kerryn was the first model to win immunity twice. When Kerryn wasn't ruling the runway, she spent much of her time flirting with the house virgin, Colin. This morning Kerryn and I chatted about her favorite photo shoot and runway challenge, what exactly a Christian modeling school is, and of course, her very own Clark Kent, Colin.


On Life in the Supermodel house:

It was definitely crazy, you didn't get a lot of sleep. We didn't really have doors on our bedrooms, so there was no real privacy unless you were taking a shower. There was a lot of stretching and pulling, which is why you get the drama. There were a lot of A type personalities stuck in the same room together, it was fun.

On Her Relationship With Colin:

Really, it was a lot of fun. It was us playing around. It was him trying to become more comfortable with the fact that he is going to be a sex icon now that he's done this. And so a lot of it was more playful, and just fun and teasing each other, which we still do all the time, whenever we're around each other. And it's a friendship I think I am going to keep forever. Because I think we grew a lot together in the competition. We still talk all the time.

What Exactly Is Christian Modeling School?

It's more of a like, we're doing this because God created us as beautiful creatures and he's not going look down on you because you're modeling. But we also looked at it as industry to kind of be missionaries in, as part of what it was about. But they just had different standards and a lot of the things they taught you, you really can't pull over to the modeling world and be a real model. Like one of the rules is the "three button rule." Where you only unbutton three of your buttons so you don't show a ton of cleavage. Or you don't show a ton of skin.

They taught us morals. Like how to hold ourselves above the crowd. They explained to us the drugs and the different stuff that goes on in the industry. And how easy it is to fall in the trap and become bulimic or anorexic. And I mean, they were preparing us to live in a model world. And they never held anything back.

I don't think God's mad at me for the decisions of my career.

On Her Favorite Photo Shoot From Make Me A Supermodel:

The candy photo shoot or the underwater photo shoot. I loved both of those and would do them again in the heartbeat. I enjoyed the underwater shoot because it was a challenge. And the candy photo shoot, I've always wanted to do something like that.

On Her Favorite Runway Challenge:

Definitely have to be the runway where I won immunity in the white suit. I still absolutely am dying over that white suit. I've never felt better in a set of clothes than I did that night, in those clothes.

On Whether She Prefers Print or Runway Modeling:

Both. I love runway. I love the crowds that are there to watch the shows. I love the bass. I love the music. The people you get to meet in those things, is just insane. And print jobs are fun too, because you get to be somebody else as long as the photo shoot lasts.

How Being On Make Me A Supermodel Felt Like One Big Long Dream:

All of us talked about how after the show it and how it felt like a crazy dream that lasted a really long. And we missed this chunk of what was going on in the world. It was a strange feeling to do the show and then go home and you weren't able to talk about it to anybody. And so it was like, did that really happen? So we would all call each other and check in and be like, that did happen right? It did?

What's Next For Kerryn:

Well, my agency is helping me look in New York. We're going to try to get me to sign an agency in New York. And if that doesn't happen, we've already got a lot of places in Paris and Milan mapped out. I'm hoping that's going to kick of in June or July. I've been told that I need to book Gucci or Prada, so we'll see I might be cutting my hair soon and going after Gucci.

On Who She Hopes Will Be This Season's Supermodel:

That's a hard one to guess, because there are so many good models. I don't know, I hope my baby girl Amanda makes it to the end. I hope Colin makes it to the end. I hope Jonathan makes it to the end. I hope Branden or Sandhrust makes it to the end. SO between those five-ish, that's who I hope makes it to the end.
