Interview with Megan Morris from “America’s Next Top Model”

AE: What's the weirdest question they asked you?
MM: They're not weird; it's typical questions that any straight girl would [ask]. "How do you … ? What is this?" You know. Totally oblivious. It's funny. Michelle also said that she was gay on the show.

AE: Oh, really?

Is she one of the twins?
She's one of the twins, yeah.

AE: That's interesting.
MM: Yeah. She was telling me, and I was like, hmm, OK, I wonder how they're gonna play it in the show, because you can’t tell. It’s so interesting what they end up showing.

AE: Why do you think that they decided to make it so low-key?
It's hard to say. I don't know, maybe because they wanted to focus on other things that they thought were bigger on the show, or perhaps it could have been that they didn't want me to resemble — I think a lot of people have been talking about Kim and how we kind of resemble each other. Maybe they didn't want to draw as much of a connection between the two of us, perhaps?

AE: Do you feel that you resemble Kim?
MM: I don't think so. I mean, I think she's a beautiful person and she takes great photos, but I definitely see a huge difference between the two of us as far as how we look and whatnot.

AE: Well, let's talk a little bit more about the other girls in the house. Did you have a chance to develop any friendships with any of them?
MM: I got a good month in of really getting to know the girls and figuring out which people I clicked best with, and I ended up becoming really close with Michelle, and I really like CariDee and A.J. … and Amanda. And Megg, also. [Laughs.] Megg's so hilarious and so funny as far as her rock star thing that she's got going on.

AE: You've only really been identified by the show as a 23-year-old bartender from San Francisco. [Laughs.]
I know, I'm like, "Hi, I'm Megan, 23, bartender." That's who I am, my identity. [Laughs.]

AE: Tell us how you would describe yourself.
OK, well, I'm actually — I'm not a bartender. I do film production. And I actually have a medical animation production studio in San Francisco. It's called Eleventh Splendor, and I do that most of the time, aside from modeling. And it's a new company. It was in development last year and it's still in development, of course, because it's so new, but that's what I've been working on for the past half year.

AE: Are you going to continue to model after this or are you going back to your company?
Oh, both actually. Modeling is important to me. Any opportunity in modeling I will definitely take because I have such a good time doing it.

AE: I haven't had a chance to ask you how you felt about being on reality TV. Would you do another show?
MM: Oh, that's a great question. You know, I'm not actually a fan of reality TV. I never have [been], and I don't even really watch television, to be honest with you. I mean, maybe that's something to do with me graduating in media studies and just understanding the media and whatnot, but yeah, I don't think I'd go on reality TV again. I think America's Next Top Model's probably the closest I'll ever get to being on reality TV. And although I had a really good time with the whole thing, I think I'll stick with modeling, not so much reality TV.
