‘Top Model’ Eliminee Role Plays With Tyra

LUCKY, La. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One Top Model cast-off doesn’t mind if Tyra Banks mocks her sweet southern style.

Joslyn Pennywell was eliminated from America’s Next Top Model this past Wednesday (Oct. 22), but not before leaving a lasting impression on her idol, Tyra Banks.

Throughout her stint on the show, Tyra mocked Pennywell’s Louisiana accent and high-pitched voice, but she didn’t mind.

Pennywell explains, “I’m so used to people impersonating my accent, it’s okay. I’m glad Tyra had fun with it and that I stuck in her head!”

Besides, Tyra isn’t the only one doing the mocking.

Pennywell admits she does a few impersonations of the master model herself, including Tyra’s “strong, serious voice” that she always does right before she’s about to eliminate a girl from Top Model.

She’s happy to have finally met Tyra, especially because she’s tried out for the modeling competition 36 times since 2004.

Top Model airs Wednesdays on The CW.
