They're similar in that they are both kind of tough females; rough around the edges. But like some of you have pointed out, Twila keeps her thoughts to herself unless prodded. Susan just let loose with anything that came into her head. When Ami commented to Twila that Twila hadn't bothered to get to know the other girls very much, Twila did admit that she hadn't and that maybe she should work on that. I don't see the french braiding thing going on, but at least she didn't get defensive like Susan would have. Mind you, I've only seen one episode, but I like Twila and her work ethic. She is someone I would want on my team.
