On this week’s episode of Oxygen’s, The Face, airing on Tuesdays at 9/8c, Brittany Mason was eliminated from the competition after delivering an awkward and forgettable bridal runway performance. In an interview with reporters, Brittany talked about her shocking elimination. Take the jump to see what she had to say.
Question: What would you say is the most important thing you’ve learned from the time you spent on the show?
Brittany: The most important thing I’ve learned…oh gosh. You can’t take yourself too seriously, I guess in a way with these things and you really have to enjoy each experience whether or not it’s the ideal situation you would want. Everything is an experience and you can always turn a negative into a positive. So me being eliminated, I’m using that as a positive stepping stone.
Question: Is there anything you were surprised to learn about yourself from doing the show?
Brittany: That I can do very well without my cell phone for a long period of time. I thought that I couldn’t live without it but it was actually very refreshing. You know, social media and all of that is not a have to. I didn’t have to be checking it all the time. It was actually nice, kind of a vacation in a way.
Question: What’s next for you?
Brittany: I live in New York now but I am actually relocating to Los Angeles. I am out here right now, pursuing some opportunities for more film and television work. I am going to continue to model but I am also doing different avenues.
Question: Coco said you that looked awkward walking down the stairs. Can you tell me what was going through your mind at that moment? And how nervous you were as you were coming down the stairs?
Brittany: I actually wasn’t nervous coming down the stairs so when she said that, I was shocked and surprised. I actually have experience walking in runway shows and I’ve done bridal runways for clientele before so I was pretty shocked.
I was nervous that there were so many stairs because I actually broke my hand almost a year ago falling down an old staircase in New York City. But I wasn’t really thinking about it while I was actually walking.
The dress I was wearing was a short dress so I had to work it differently. I had to model it differently than a normal gown.
Question: It looked like you were expecting Coco to put Margaux up for elimination. How shocked were you when she chose you instead?
Brittany: I was extremely shocked. I still am a little shocked about it. But whether I agree with her decision or not, I have to respect it as my coach. You know, she’s my coach and I have to respect her decision. She did what she felt was right for the team and for her overall. When I was the one chosen, I was very surprised.
What are your thoughts on what Brittany had to say about being eliminated from the competition? Were you as shocked as she was that Coco put her up for elimination instead of Margaux? Post a comment and let us know.
