On why it's her favorite show, "ever": "This is the only show that's all about the girls, all about fun, and you're looking as beautiful as you possibly can. That's what makes it so special. Most of the other shows, it's about a certain look, it's about a certain mood. And here, you pretty much go and have the best time ever. But then you prepare for weeks before, that comes with a lot of hard work."
On how she prepared: "Well, where do I start? This year has been really competitive, I think. I think everybody went really out of their way to prepare for the show. Literally, for three weeks, it's been a really intense workout, a really intense diet. I'm very happy to have it over tonight, so I can go eat, drink, and celebrate."
The first thing she's going to eat, postshow: "To be honest, I was actually thinking about it last night. I'm a big fruit person, and I wasn't even able to have fruit for the last three weeks, so fruit for me is the thing. I miss my oranges."
On walking while her boyfriend, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, is performing: "We're just going to maybe do a little cute moment, but we don't want to be overdramatic. I'm a model, he's a singer, we're just doing our jobs and just happen to be together, so maybe we'll do a cute moment but nothing crazy. I'm very excited to have him next to me, it's very special."
On trading diet and workout tips with the other models: "I don't really see these girls very much until we all come together, because we're all really busy. But I'm really looking forward to actually talking to everybody and seeing how everybody's been doing it. What works for me, diet-wise, is just pure protein — I don't eat meat — so either tofu or fish and steamed vegetables. Egg whites. That's pretty much it. And in smaller amounts. I know with some girls, just being on fruit only works, I heard Adriana [Lima] is doing some kind of liquid or no-liquid thing, which I'm really excited to get some tips about. But you just have to figure out what works with your body."
