And just like that, 22 contestants get whittled down to 14 finalists! I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. A runway four-stories high? It's not like you prepare yourself for a runway show like that. Usually, runway shows take place in a nice, relaxed, indoor setting, but hey, this is America’s Next Top Model; you have to be ready for anything.

I was one of the last people to walk the runway and was extremely anxious since I knew only 14 people would make the cut. During the runway show, people were dropping while others were being lifted to the other side. Since I was at the end of the line, the 14 spots were quickly filling up. Was I a little worried? Yes. Did I think I was going to go home? No. I’ve worked my whole life for an opportunity like this; plus, I felt like the judges saw the potential in me.

Out of everyone that didn't make it, my biggest disappointment was Dallas dropping. I was certain he would make it to the other side. He’s such a cool dude. I was in complete shock, but I know he will do just fine in the industry! Good luck, bro! See you in L.A .soon!

So, let's talk Courtney: First things first, I'd like to apologize. I was wrong for talking like that, but I got so mad with Ava, because since day one, all I did was try to be nice to Courtney. And now, because suddenly Courtney was crying, everyone wanted to be best friends with her and see what was wrong. I thought that was a little strange, seeing as the how night before, she had no bed to sleep in and no one offered her a place to sleep except me. I wasn't feeling the awww Courtney! It's okay! We’re best-friends-all-of-a-sudden thing. With that being said, I’m sorry for talking like that, Coutney and I’m sorry, Ava, for telling you to shut up.

Okay; I feel better now.
