After breaking down in tears at the sight of her picture, Nikita Kiceluk’s drifting confidence was enough for the judges to lose faith in her too.

Which part of this experience was the most fun? Which was the most stressful?
“The most stressful would definitely be the long hours. It just plays on you like crazy and you’re so tired all of the time. It’s probably the most stressful, aside from eliminations because oh man, I could pull my hair out at those things.“The most fun? Just everything in general. From the people I met, to the places I’ve been, to the pictures I’ve made, to who I was, to who I am now, everything has been fun.”

Anything you wish you could do over?
“Nothing. I wouldn’t change anything.”

Do you think it was your turn to go? If not, who should have gone?
“It’s not necessarily that I think that it was my turn to go. I could see the judges’ point and perspective and I trust them, but I wish that they saw the Meaghan that we did. I don’t think she’s capable to withstand in an industry like this because she caved at the first sign of weakness in a Cover Girl shoot. The whole industry is like that and I know that because I’ve been there. I’ve been called fat and not been able to do something.”

Are you still planning to pursue a career in modelling?
“Yeah, I’m still planning on pursuing a career in modelling. I’ve got Jeanne Beker on my back, like ‘Hell yeah!’ I’m not going to let that woman down, she’d kill me. I love mode’ling, I still do, and just because I didn’t win Canada’s Next Top Model doesn’t mean I can’t be a model. Watch it. I’ll still do it. I’ll be better than them. It’s cool.”
