In my mind, I’m like, “I don’t mind tooching, I tooched the other day in the syrup shoot.” But when she was like you gotta wear the pad, I don’t know, everything in me just kind of shied up and I backed away.

I have “Androgynous” as a tattoo. Tyra and the producers and the executives made sure that while I was on the show, I represented myself how they had seen me, and how I would dress on a day-to-day basis in skinny jeans and jackets, and boots, and then I would transform.

That might be the most introspective thing ever said on the show. Quick, how can we cure it?! - Ali Davis
