‘Top Model’ Eliminee Finds Mini-Me

PHOENIX (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One Top Model eliminee found her real life Mini-Me during a photo shoot – and proceeded to have a pose-off.

Tahlia Brookins was voted off America’s Next Top Model this past Wednesday (Apr. 8), but walked away with a new tiny buddy.

During a photo shoot where the models had to portray Ellis Island immigrants, Brookins made friends with a little girl who was one of her background models.

Turns out the eight-year-old model was also named Tahlia, which totally floored both of them.

Brookins says, “She’d never met anyone with her same name before and thought it was the coolest thing! Then she told me, ‘I’m going to out-model you!’ and we had a pose-off.”

Her pint-sized pal became so attached during the shoot, that by the end she was showering Brookins with hugs.

Her Mini-Me encounter was the best moment she had on the show because it “melted away” her stress.

Top Model airs Wednesdays on The CW.
