I actually didn't make the cut the first round. They rejected the Filipinas and the Polish. The Polish parents complained. So they had to accept all of us. Because it was racially-motivated bias.
Marilyn and I were rejected at first. As were Joanna and Ivana.
But I became the best cheerleader I could ever be.
I still know my cheers.
But yah, they thought the Filipinas and Polish were ugly.
It was racist.
