Shannon Stewart's been on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 9PM ET on The CW) before, and that time around she had to pose in lingerie, which made her feel uncomfortable: "That's not the way I want to be portrayed."
This time around Shannon feels more confident about asserting herself and so she refuses to wear a pair of lace panties for an exterior shoot, opting instead to don a pair of teeny-tiny bikini bottoms.
What's confusing the heck out of photo shoot director Jay Manuel is that she should have been wearing the panties over the bikini bottoms in the first place anyway. "Are you that uncomfortable wearing it on top?" he asks.
But Shannon won't budge. That's who she is, and she'd rather give it all up and go home than do something she's not comfortable with.
