TV Guide talks to Fatima from Top Model

Ben Katner of TV Guide interviewed third place finisher Fatima Siad. In the interview, Siad talks about the photo shoot that never happened, the front she put on for the show, the plus-size winner, why she can't stand people who act "ghetto," how she looks like Iman, and much more.
Katner remarks at the beginning of the interview that he was pleasantly surprised by how much he actually liked talking to Fatima. But I think the interview gives us the same Fatima we got on the show. And I think JJ would agree, judging from his reviews. For example, Katner asks if Fatima thinks the judges were trying to find reasons to keep Whitney Thompson, just so Top Model could have a plus-size winner. She answers, "Um, yeah. I was very perceptive in terms of knowing who was going to go home every week. So I kind of knew from the beginning that Whitney was going to win, but I was in denial at the same time. I think Tyra has been dying to get a plus-size model."
