Kyle Gober is the latest eliminated contestant from “America’s Next Top Model.” She tells Zap2it all about her experience in the house, but the big news is that her modeling career is temporarily on hold because she and her fiance are expecting a baby!
Was “ANTM” everything you expected it would be?
“Yeah, definitely. All the challenges were so much fun. I
got to work with so many cool people. It was so
interesting to do all these different things and experience the
life of actually being a model. You don’t realize until
you’re in the house how hard it is to be a model. Before the show, I hadn’t done a ton of stuff. But being on the
show is back-to-back craziness. You get to experience the real life of a model.”
Why was it so hard on you? Why did you want to quit last
“Basically, I wasn’t able to talk to my
parents very much. I’m really big on family, so I really
needed motherly advice. It was just craziness and so
hectic, living with all the girls. I just think the
pressure of everything coming down at once and how
stressful it was just made me like kind of lose it for a
I did make the mistake of saying I wanted to go
home. I said
something I probably shouldn’t have said. I do regret
saying that. Obviously, I wanted to be there. I wouldn’t
have come all the way out to L.A. if I wanted to be there. I
wanted to win the whole thing.”
What did you think of the girls saying it was unfair you
got to use the butt pad during the challenge?
Uhh, I was a little bit upset about it because the dresses
didn’t fit me, like I said on the show. I was one of the
tiniest girls in the house. I went through like every
dress on that rack and they were just hanging off me. The
whole challenge was accentuating the booty
tooch, so the stylist gave me the butt pad and little fake
gel boob thingies. We were laughing, having fun about it. And when I watched the episode last night, it was weird to
see that tthe girls were so angry about it, because I thought
they were OK about it. If I knew the girls were going to
get really mad about it, I probably wouldn’t have used them.”
Was there anyone you were rooting for once you were
“Eboni and Seymone. Me and Seymone are so close,
especially in the house, we formed a really tight bond. We
were always getting picked on and stuff. And then Eboni,
to me personally, I think has one of the strongest looks. I
hope she wins. She’s very versatile to me. She has this different look, she’s high fashion and she’s commercial,
she would have the best opportunity to go far after the
show. She’s my bet right now.”
What’s next for you? What have you been doing since your
time on the show?
Me and my fiance just found out that I’m pregnant! I’m
having a baby, so my next step is being a mom. But I definitely don’t want to give up on modeling. Hopefully
I’ll snap wright back into shape.
Kyle tells us she’s due Nov. 23, so congratulations to her and her fiance. “America’s Next Top Model” airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on the CW.
