I'd never date a male model - Roz

ROZANNA Purcell may be a top model herself, but that doesn't mean she wants to date one.

The reigning Miss Universe Ireland (20) has shunned model stereotypes and said that her male equivalents just aren't her type.

Since being signed by Trump model management, the former UCD student has moved to New York -- and has vowed never to date any of her colleagues.

Although she is constantly surrounded by some of the most handsome men in the world on auditions and casting calls in the Big Apple, the beauty queen has blasted their work as a "turn-off".

When asked by the Herald if she was seeing anyone Stateside, she said: "No, unfortunately, I'm such a loser.

"You'd think that I would go on a few dates. I don't think I'd ever date a male model to be honest, it's a bit of a turn-off.

"The male models there are absolutely gorgeous, but they wouldn't be my type. I'm just focusing on my career at the moment, maybe in the new year I'll go on some dates."

The leggy beauty, who came seventh in this year's Miss Universe competition, recently split from her boyfriend Jamie Hunt before jetting off to the US to pursue her modelling career.

Billlionaire mogul Donald Trump has vowed to make the former UCD student a "star", and she is preparing to fly to South Africa next month to rock the runway for their swimsuit season.
