'Top Model' finalist Kim dishes the dirt

142959__kim_lOne of the great injustices of the current TV season has to be that America’s Next Top Model contestant Kim (left) got eliminated before dreaded, ginormous-gummed Jayla. But if she’d won, who knows if the out lesbian would have felt free to give such candid, dishy interviews like the ones she granted this week to several gay media outlets. Among her more interesting revelations:

-She says she doesn’t think any of her fellow contestants were responsible for the infamous Granolagate incident, in which Bre‘s breakfast bars were pilfered. ”Maybe one of Bre’s other personalities ate it,” Kim tells The Advocate.

-She regrets talking badly about Lisa (the one who urinated in a diaper). ”She turned out to be one of the most genuine and good and funny and exhilarating people I have ever met,” Kim says in Planet Out. ”Lisa is the one person I completely misjudged.”


-And what did Kim make of "Miss" J. Alexander‘s regular grousing that she was too masculine? ”He is definitely someone who has a very unique gender-identity expression,” Kim says, ”and it really irked me that he was the one making the most comments and the harshest comments about my gender — when I thought if anyone should understand, it should be him.”

All I can say is this: Kim certainly knows how to give an interview. And while I don’t think she’ll ever quite cut it as a model, her Veronica Mars cameo makes me think a career as an actress is a realistic possibility.

How about you?

    I don’t watch ‘ANTM’ but love ‘Veronica Mars.’ I knew a contestant would guess in that episode, and I totally thought it was the foreign girl on the computer. She totally transformed into such a regular employee, and I bought it, that I definitely think she could be a decent actress with some proper training. Film star? Probably not. But successful.

    Kim was great. I was hoping she would win from the very beginning but I knew that Tyra would find some reason to kick her off because Tyra looks to make statements with whoever she picks, yet she lacks the b*lls to actually pick someone who is different.
    I hope Kim sticks with modeling because I would like to see her successful. Plus, any ad she would do would get my attention, and isn’t that what a good model does?

    Kim was my favorite – and for many reasons. I loved the fact that she was presenting a different image of what most people think of what a lesbian looks like, I loved her personality, and I loved her look. She was/is different than most of the models out there today. I love the show and supposedly Tyra & co know what they are doing, but their track record is spotty to me. Season 1 should have been Elyse, season 2 should have been Shandi, they got season 3 right with Eva, and last season they picked the biggest stick-pot of all – Naima. Her “My Life…” commercials are they best bathroom breaks ever created. She is boring, speaks horribly, and has ZERO personality. AND, with the 3 remaining this season I fear next seasons commercials are going to be boring again because neither Nik or Nicole has half the personality of Kim.

    Kim told PlanetOut that she would love to have a small part on “The L Word.” I hope she gets it, and that her role becomes popular enough that the producers cast her in a supporting role. I mean, she’s gotta be better than the chicks from Betty, right?

  • Kim

    I don’t think they really pick them for there modeling abilities. They want to create drama so they cast people they know will cause trouble.

    I always thought Kim was maybe a little too edgy to actually win ANTM, but she was definitely the most intriging wannabe in this Cycle. With the possible exception of the attention seeking Lisa, Kim clearly seemed to get the editor’s cut when it came to showing the girls’ behind-the-scenes activities for the show and the video downloads on the ANTM website. Like others, I also thought Kim maybe was booted a tad early, but I think Kim’s potential lies elsewhere other than on the runway, and I mean that as a sincere compliment.

    First of all, I agree with what everyone says about Naima, she sucks. When Eva did my life as a Covergirl, she was always in Fashion shows or at photo shoots. Naima is with friends or signing autographs at Walgreens. On to this season, I want and think that Bre will win, for many rasons. I think she has the best runway walk and she’s the underdog. I hope this is not a spoiler but, if you go to the UPN website and click on Top Model, there is a picture that says “who will the winner be” There is a photo where the girl has been removed, it really resembles Bre with straight hair. I think Wednesday’s show will go: Nik will be eliminated first(shocker I know but, trust me). Bre and Nicole will battle it out and Bre will be victorious(mark my words).It’s going to be just like a repeat of the Cycle 3 finale when Eva was the shortest and the underdog.

    An actress? … Nah.

  • Maggie

    I hate Tyra. She is so clueless. djm- totally agree with you that Elyse should have won season 1, and Shandi season 2, but I didn’t like Eva or anyone from season 3. Naima was a nice girl but please- so completely boring.
    We are the consumer that Tyra is trying to market her “top model” for but she screws it up every time. If Kim won then Tyra would have finally got it right.

  • brandonk

    I don’t watch the show, but good for Kim. Her comments about J. Alexander are right on. When someone acts like that, how can he advocate traditional gender roles?!

  • Scott

    I like Kim a lot, she seems to have a really intriguing personality and, unlike the Naima, she was actually a believable actress on Veronica Mars. But, I don’t think she had a shot to win. She had some good photos, but, also many bad ones. That’s not to say she isn’t talented, but, based strickly on modeling ability, I think the remainging three all deserve to be there over her.
    I agree with people’s comments about Tyra always trying to make a statement with her choices, rather than picking the best (Naima over Kahlen is a prime example). And if they eliminate Nik this week over some minuscule, blown out of proportion flaw, I will have lost what little respect I gained when they finally got rid of Junior High Jayla.

    I am not gay or bi or anything but when i first saw kin on the show i thogut Dang that girl would be a sexy man but only when she is in masculin mode that really pops my bubble

  • Eliza

    Kim should have won, she was the one one with any personality, and definately the prettiest. So annoyed when they kicked her out.
