“Of course, you cannot cancel Tyra. No…no there’s not canceling Tyra,” the mannequin says.

Toccara went on to say nobody will get paid to be a contestant and the present is only a stepping stone.

“First of all, we didn’t get paid anything. It’s a contest so there’s no payment….the whole purpose of the contest is to win the prize. It’s for the exposure. That $40 was a per diem. So we didn’t get paid technically, no one got paid.
