The latest episode of BINTM saw Roxy getting cut down by hot judge Tyson Beckford, after he found her cocky in the androgynous photoshoot.
But eliminated contestant Tas reckons the mum-of-one has been misunderstood by the American model and is not like that at all.
Speaking exclusively to Yahoo! omg! Ty said: "It was very shocking [to see Tyson say those things]. Roxy's so sweet. Trust me.
"She's such a nice girl and she's not any of the things she said so I think he just misunderstood her."
Tyson told flame-haired Roxy he wouldn't want to spend any time with her on a photoshoot because of her personality - to which Elle MacPherson told him she'd spank his bottom (oo-er).
But Tas revealed that the male model actually apologised later off camera for his attack.
She said: "He apologised in the end. He said he didn't meant to make her upset and shouldn't have said those things.
"She's not like that at all. She was very upset by her hair do [Roxy was given a ginger afro in the makeovers] and was trying to compensate."
Meanwhile Tas, who was booted out of the competition this week after being in the bottom two for the third time, said she hopes Roxy goes on to win the competition.
She said: "I think Roxy has the natural talent and beautiful face. And they gave her that crazy hair. You can't eliminate somebody if you do that to them."
She also reckons Irish beauty Lisa may have a chance. She told us: "I think she'll go far. She's definitely one to watch."
Asked who she reckons may be next for the axe, she told us: "I hope that Maddie doesn't become too nervous and really puts her head in the game because she's actually really sweet."
And despite the fact that Tas was very quick to gush about the gorgeous Tyson Beckford, she also had a lot of praise for another judge.
She said: "Julien McDonald's amazing. Some of the things he comes out with you think he's really funny. He's a smart guy."
