PopWrap: Where's your walker -- I expected to see a decrepit granny based on the judges comments about how old you are!
Celia: Yes, well, I'm awaiting my imminent death. But until then, I'm starting a bridge club. It was frustrating because they knew how old I was from the beginning and I couldn't do anything about it.
PW: I kinda felt like the haircut Tyra gave you accentuated your age, maybe?
Celia: The haircut itself was unbelievable, I loved it. It was so high fashion, so chic. But I do feel like some of the ways it was styled was a little ... harsh.
PW: Why didn't you audition for a previous cycle?
Celia: Ah, but I did audition! I did! When I was 23, I auditioned in NYC and didn't make it -- so they could have had me 2 years ago! But to be honest, I don't think I was as ready or prepared back then.
PW: Speaking of prepared, your clothes were a highlight this season -- even for the judges! Did you pack one outfit for each elimination?
Celia: Let me tell you, that's what I was there for -- to showcase my style. But honestly, I didn't think I'd make it overseas, so you saw me wearing lambs wools in 90 degrees weather.
PW: Who would you like to see win?
Celia: Allison is my soulmate -- I really would love her to win, but i think Teyona will.
