Top Model's Alex Sinadinovic hits back at fellow contestant Brittany Beattie who claims she eats just ONE leaf salad a day

An Australia's Next Top Model contestant has caused controversy after it was claimed she ate only one green leaf salad a day during filming for the competition.

But the model in question, Alex Sinadinovic, has hit back at the catwalk rival that made the damaging accusations.

Fellow contestant and former bobcat driver Brittany Beattie, 20, from Victoria, claimed that Alex, 19, of Wollongong, New South Wales, consumed just the one small meal per day.

Alex has told the Daily Telegraph that Brittany's comments are 'ridiculous'.

Alex told the newspaper that she'd lost a total of 2kg during her time on the show because of a newer, healthier diet plan and took aim at her counterpart's own eating habits.

'I think she was probably one of the girls that didn’t have the knowledge of eating that I did, she … (was) the type of girl that would eat meat pies, Maccas ... she probably saw me eating healthy food and wondered how I was functioning.

'She was definitely not next to me at every second of the day ... she did not see what I consumed 24/7.' 

Brittany's version of events on the other hand were quite different.

'She thought that eating a green leaf salad a day was good enough,' Brittany told OK! Magazine

'It wasn't healthy, she just wouldn't eat.' 

It had been claimed that ANTM judge Jennifer Hawkins had to intervene when Alex dropped 2 kgs off her already slender frame.

'Jen asked me about losing the weight - she was concerned,' Alex herself told the publication.

But the teenager says she wasn't too bothered about her weight loss, putting it all down to her competitive streak.

'I was probably the most serious about diet and exercise there; others just didn't give a s***,' she said.

The revelation comes after Alex proclaimed in her model profile that her favourite food is 'donuts'. 

The blonde blue-eyed beauty is definitely the one to watch as it seems she will also play out the role of villain.

The straight-talker of the pack says in a promo clip for the Foxtel show she has no doubt she will go all the way.

'I know I can win this because I work hard enough, I will have the whole package,' she says.
