'America's Next Top Model': Chatting with McKey Sullivan

Mckey_2 After becoming "America's Next Top Model's" 11th winner, Brittany "McKey" Sullivan chatted with journalists on a conference call about the competition and life after it. Here were a few highlights from the discussion:

On what it was like transitioning from an athletic tomboy to a model:

I still sometimes have this habit of putting my butt on the edge of the chair and sitting with my legs wide open. That's not very attractive! I also used to try to spit like the guys too, but that didn't really work out — I didn't have the same skills. I had a wonderful advisor at Elite Chicago who taught me everything there is about presenting yourself and finding your own style and doing your makeup and how to shake people's hands. That was priceless to me. I learned that you don't have to dress like a guy to be yourself — you can find a style within the fashion industry that looks like you and feels like you.

What was going through her mind during the final judging:

This is embarrassing, but I always have to pee when I'm nervous, so I'm just sitting there with my designer gown with my legs crossed thinking, "Please don't pee in this designer gown!" As judging went on I got more and more comfortable and stopped shaking so much.
