1) I was sick of Tyra putting her down for having a "country" accent. Get over it, Tyra!
2) When I interviewed the eliminated contestants this season, most of them singled out Danielle for being a beautiful person inside and out.
3) She has an amazing portfolio.
Jade, the girl Top Model fans love to hate, was the first finalist eliminated during the season finale. "My confidence was definitely mistaken for arrogance," she said. Then she added that the judges couldn't handle her special look. She read a poem and made her exit -- dancing.
So, it was down to Danielle and Joanie and the two faced off in a runway challenge. In the end, the judges decided that Danielle was their next Top Model.
