It was thrilling to see Whitney become the first-ever plus-size model on the show to be called out first in panel. BRAVO!!!
She really deserved it -- not only for the photo, but also because she also impressed during the posing challenge. She has been the only model on the show so far who has been doing the "three-second rule" that Tyra talked about, striking a pose and holding her place for three seconds at the end of runway challenges.
And that photographer -- someone of genuine status in the industry -- was really enthusiastic in his praise for her work.
