The winner of the American reality show "Stylista" Johanna Cox, who beat eleven contestants on the CW show for a junior editor position at fashion magazine Elle, has quit after two years.
Cox who was awarded an editorial position at the New York- based magazine, along with a paid lease on a Manhattan apartment and a clothing allowance at H&M got to stay on after her CW-appointed year of service, without the perks.
Citing the "the ridiculously low pay, unforgiving schedule" in addition to the office politics which Cox describes as "venomous middle-school antics," the reality-show winner has decided to leave the magazine.
In a blog post titled Dreams are for Poor People, Cox elaborated on her reasons for leaving the coveted job saying, "At the end of this summer, just under two years invested, I came to a hard realisation: Regardless of how much I loved my work (and most of the people I worked with), my overall quality of life had deteriorated."
"Johanna was a capable member of the Elle staff for two years. We wish her well in her future endeavours," said Elle Director of Public Relations Erin Kaplan.
