Britain's Next Top Model axes another: I didn't want rivals to be nice

The 22-year-old from London was sent home by the judges and Elle Macpherson after a self confessed "crap" photo shoot at Niagara Falls in Canada.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Risikat revealed that Macpherson had actually suggested upon her elimination that she is destined for success in front of a different kind of camera.

"She said to the other judges, 'I think we'll see you very soon in TV', she didn't say modelling," Risikat said. "So I guess maybe they think I'm not much of a model, but more of a personality.

"I'm really open-minded about things. I enjoy modelling and it's something I will always do regardless, but it will never stop me from doing something else. I don't see why not.

"I've done some presenting before, but I think my accent is so funny. Whenever I watch the show I can't stand it."

Probed about why she found Anita's breakdown atop the CN Tower so hilarious, Risikat explained: "How could you not [laugh]? She just kept on crying and... panicking. Because she's such a fun girl, I find it funny when she cries. I can't take her seriously."

Risikat added that although she was having a good time in Canada, the thought of the Next Top Model final had started to play on the girls' minds.

"It's so easy in general to forget that it's a competition because there's so many other things going on," she started. "But towards the end you really feel the pressure and you understand the final is coming in two weeks.

"You understand that all this time that you've invested can now pay off, but only for one person... everyone just kept themselves to themselves a bit more, but it's understandable.

"To be honest with you, I never wanted someone to be nice to me in the competition, or treat me like a friend, because I'm here only for one reason, because I want to win. So I've never felt offended by anyone."

She went on to clarify that she had meant her comment about Lisa having a gameplan as a joke, saying: "Lisa probably doesn't know what a gameplan means. She's not that kind of girl at all. She's not trying to be nice, she's just nice."

She continued: "I think everyone had some sort of strategy. [But] you can't really have a gameplan - you either do well or do bad."

Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model continues Mondays at 9pm on Sky Living.
