plus-size model Toccara: “I gave those skinny bitches a run for their money.”
America’s Next Top Model 3‘s Toccara Jones, who was the group’s remaining plus-sized model (meaning she didn’t disappear when she turned sideways), says that she “was speechless. I was truly, truly robbed” when Ann stayed and she was eliminated. But she also tells TV Guide, “I gave those skinny bitches a run for their money.” She says the judges will regret their decision because “The world loves me. That’s the viewers at home voting for that. That’s what matters to me, because those are the consumers who will go out and buy my magazines and the clothes and makeup that I might be endorsing. There’s no black plus-size supermodel out there–now they have Toccara.”
