Jane Randall, one of the finalists in cycle 15 of America's Next Top Model, is also a member of the Class of 2012 at Princeton—and, for some reason, she agreed to this very awkward interview session with a fellow student member of the University Press Club. The interview took the format of a mock therapy session—complete with crayons (?). Ivygate has a complete breakdown of the video here. Some priceless (awkward) moments include:
5:00 – ANTM wanted to pigeonhole Jane Randall as an uppity Ivy Leaguer. God, they should really leave that poor girl alone. We would never do such a thing.— Top Model Contestant Has Terrifically Awkward Interview with Princeton Dweeb [IvyGate]
5:30 – Jane Randall has PTSD from ANTM? Please, that’s nothing a Vicodin–and maybe some basement sex with a grateful interviewer dressed like the love child of Paul Bunyan and Yente–wouldn’t solve.
7:50 – Princeton girl spent weeks without any books, doing nothing but?socializing? This might be the first recorded instance of a Princeton student talking to people for extended periods of time without stopping periodically to read about ergonomics.
8:50 – Grand finale! Film geek shows us his “art,” which will single-handedly be responsible for getting him committed. Way to pick up chicks, buddy.
