ANTM Winner Jaslene Gonzalez Endorses Recent Riot

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 8 winner Jaslene Gonzalez is paid to be pretty, not smart. Which is a good thing for the 22-year-old beauty.

OK! Magazine asked Gonzalez at a recent premiere how she felt about the riot that erupted at an ANTM casting call last weekend in New York City.

Gonzalez, not having heard about the melee, initially endorsed what had happened.

“I feel like it’s just part of the excitement of the show,” she replied. “You never know what to expect. It’s all types of characters and personalities. Why not cause a riot? It makes great TV,” she replied.

Uh, Jas? There was a stampede, with people running and screaming. And six injuries, complete with arrests.

Gonzalez seemed to think that maybe it was some sort of new challenge that Tyra Banks, and Mr. and Ms. Jay had cooked up to test model hopefuls.

Someone finally filled the Latina beauty in on what had taken place.

“It’s very unfortunate. I feel bad,” she quickly backtracked. “I wish everyone the best, and for everything to happen naturally and well for the girls. But for something like that to happen, it’s unfortunate. You wish safety and protection and the best.”

Whew! For a minute there, it sounded like Jaslene was the first anarchist winner of ANTM.
