Wow... all I can say is whoa! That was a model's ambition put into an elequent perspective. But it's true, if she believes in herself she can do it.I don’t recall Janice calling her ugly. I think Janice recognized Brooks huge potential, but was frustrated by Brook’s seeming lack of appreciation and motivation, of how much potential she has. And how fleeting that potential is in the modeling world. Like Tyra said “all the potential in the world”. People in the industry expect to see a highly well cared for canvass (skin, hair, nails, body) immaculate, as a indication of how much you want it. And that is much easier said than done, to the level of the professional modeling world. And that is just for starters. To get you through the door.
But that is never enough. They have to really want it. Like Tyra, and Janice did. They have to want it enough to make it their top priority. Where every thing revolves around what is best for their modeling. What they eat, drink, sleep, and put in their body, who they associate with, and what they do with them, has to be all about their modeling, and what is best for their modeling.
And it has to be their passion. Something they really want for them-self more than for someone, or something else. Only Brookie can say if she really wants it that bad. But if she does. She has the potential. People in the industry are there, mostly because it is their passion. They will have little patience for those who don’t seem to really care, or have a passion for it. Especially if they have enormous potential like Brooke. Because what they really think, but don’t say is “What a waste. I wish I had this, or that like her, I’d know what to do with it”.
But as I said before. Brookie was apparently in school, and appeared extremely rundown, over worked, and poorly nourished at the start of the show. From having maybe to much on her plate. So I don’t think her problem was lack of motivation. I think she was just over worked, and needed some time to rest, and realign her priorities. She looks much healthier, and rested now.
