i definitely do think that monique was just playing it up for the cameras..
partly, because she said she was,
but also, the producers said that during the semifinal week, they actually thought monique was going to be one of the nice girls, but once she got into the house, they were horrified to see how she acted.
also, a number of the girls from the show said that during the semifinal week monique was really really sweet, but once she got into the house... it was like jekyll and hyde..
personality aside, i think she was eliminated too late.
her look would have been great during the 90's/tyra's era.. but fashion is pretty much over it.
