Catwalk beauty Tyra Banks shocked viewers of her hit TV show America's Next Top Model Wednesday night when she lost her usually-clam demeanor and screamed at an ousted contestant.

To give the show's aspiring models a wake-up call, two girls were eliminated from the series this week, as opposed to the usual one.

And while Rebecca took her rejection badly and wept, Banks was particularly upset to see Tiffany leaving the competition in a joking mood, almost as if it didn't bother her.

Banks called the girls back and yelled at Tiffany, telling her that she needs to take responsibility for herself.

She screamed, "I have never in my life yelled at a girl like this! When my mother yells like this it's because she loves me. I was rooting for you... How dare you?"

Miami-native Tiffany now admits her attitude could've been better--and is even grateful that Banks screamed at her.

(Story continues below...)

She says, "Part of me did give up. I was being very disrespectful... Tyra did care about me, her yelling at me. I have the utmost respect for her... She cared about me and that's cool knowing that Tyra cares about you."

The winner of the TV contest will walk away with a Ford modeling contract, an Elle spread and a $100,000 Cover Girl contract.
