  • Disappeared Dad: Her Leitmotif, Underwater, was inspired by her deceased father.
  • The Ditz: ZigZagged. She is a clever girl, but she does have ditzy moments, oh boy! In the end it just adds to her overall cuteness.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With everyone, especially with Laura and Angelea.
  • Friendship Moment: Mainly with Laura, especially in the last episodes. She also had one with Alexandria during the latter's fight with Bianca in episode 7.
  • Indy Ploy: The entire Episode 8, as well as the photo and video shoots involving sunlight in the last few episodes.
  • Moveset Clone: Her and Laura. Both of them are previous runners-up, have blond hair, and were fan favorites. This became a factor during the final elimination, sadly (the one that took an hour and a half) leading to Laura's Shocking Elimination.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Double Subverted. Though she's Always Second Best, she's actually more stronger in challenges and pictorials compared to Cycle 12.
  • Nerdgasm: The music video puts the creepy personification to creepy-chan's essence perfectly.
  • Neutral Female: When some of the girls start losing their tempers and becomes emotional (read: Lisa, Angelea, Shannon and Bianca), she just stay calm and generally avoids getting caught in the drama.
  • The Pollyanna: With the death of her father, she can't be considered a Wide-Eyed Idealist anymore compared to her Cycle 12 self. Fortunately, she retains the positive attitude and outlook in life that people like about her.

  • Kirk Summation: Dominique and Laura's speech in episode 10 claiming that she Does Not Know Her Own Strength qualifies as this.
    Dominique: "Being an All Star, you gotta know it, you gotta own it, and you gotta believe it if you want everyone else to believe in you."
    Laura: "You can sing. You can act. You can model. But you don't know it!"
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Zig-Zagged. She managed to reach the finale this time around, but she still finished 3rd. Also, her run this Cycle is considered inferior compared to her strong run note  in Cycle 14.
  • Unknown Rival: Sans Allison, she is this to everyone else, most notably Lisa. Subverted in the finale where Lisa considered her as her greatest competition based on how badly she wanted to win.


  • My Greatest Second Chance: Zig-Zagged. She finished a rank lower compared to her original Cycle finish, yet she won best photos twice. Like Laura, that's something she never achieved in her original Cycle.

  • Chekhov's Boomerang: Her reluctance to pose in underwear and lingerie becomes a plot device once again. And when she did refused, the panel declared that they'll consider Shannon's entire body of work. They did. Including those from Cycle 1. Ultimately, the deciding factor whether she stays was her very first photo.
  • Drama Queen: Ironically, one of the more drama creating models in the house (Considering the contestants were mostly Drama Queen from their original cycle..).
  • So First Cycle: She might have survived elimination after her reluctance to do a sexy photoshoot in Cycle 1, but not this time.

  • Tag Along Kid: She fits by being one of the youngest girls in the competition as well as the girl from the newest (previous) Cycle.


  • Blond, Brunette, Redhead: She appeared with dark hair in episode 1. For those who haven't saw Cycle 15, Kayla is naturally blond but her hair was dyed red, thus donning all three colors in her two Cycle appearance. The makeover team bought her back to being a redhead in 2.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: She herself lampshaded this during one of her interviews.
    Kayla: "Am I doing my best? Yes. But am I standing out of the pack? I don't think so."
  • The Quiet One: Most of the time.
  • Tag Along Kid: She is the youngest girl in the competition.


  • Reformed, but Rejected: Majority of the other girls were unhappy when they realized she's also in the competition. Fortunately, they got better.

  • My Greatest Second Chance: Double Subverted due to snagging the first best photo this Cycle, she is the lowest ranking contestant (tenth) from her original Cycle compared to the other girls who finished between sixth to runner-up. Unfortunately, she was out two judging later.


  • Four Is Death: She's the fourth placer from the fourth Cycle... and this Cycle's first boot.


How well does it match the trope?
