RuPaul's Drag Race took a page out of America's Next Top Model last week when one of the contestants was abruptly dismissed during the final of the show.
The incident mirrored an episode of America's Next Top Model All Stars series, when Angelea Preston was abruptly booted from the competition.
Rumors flooded across social media outlets saying that Preston had initially won the competition, but when she revealed it on her Facebook account before the show was aired, it led to her disqualification.
The model never clarified the rumors and stayed off the radar ever since the incident. She made a brief appearance on MTV's Made, where she coached her younger cheerleader sister. Her most recent tweet was a slam at America's Next Top Model Network CW, @cw_network please don't use me in your commercials in Buffalo to get girls to come to auditions for that b----s--t show. Thank u, she tweeted.
Preston's rep, Jeff Cohen, contested that the model would have revealed the results of the show on Facebook before they were aired. She would never... She's a smart person. She would never post anything that would disqualify. That was her second season; she knew way better than that. We just somehow have to get her able to talk to an attorney who can advise her on her rights, as soon as possible, he told Wet Paint.
At the time Cohen told the press that her agency would be investigating the cause of her disqualification but the results are yet to be announced to the public.
Again, as to when whatever happened, we have to find out, whether or not it was something [the CW] knew from the start. We're just in that collection information stage. There are a lot of rules as to what someone can say, any conversations, we have advisers looking at what can be done and not done. Nobody wants to violate any rules, but at the same time, there might be things that she can do, he explained.
William Belli from RuPaul's Drag race' was similarly given the boot on last week's show, but he has decided to be more coy than Preston. He told EW that he had done nothing wrong and was waiting for an explanation.
