This week was fun. I’ve been raised around farm animals so it was pretty fun to work with the steer, except for the pain in my foot I had after the steer stepped on it. I really didn’t like the photo though. It didn’t look like I was interacting with the steer. I didn’t mind the runway; I looked really Scottish. Elimination sucked this time because Colin went home. Now we’re not going to have some brains in the house.
you're on my top 3 list so hope you keep it up. you need to add on a few pounds and more muscle though. and stay away from swine. there's some kinda flu going around.
Branden, you are probably the only one with personality left in this whole thing. I think it is seriously excellent the way you have avoided the mini-drama and stuff and not set up wierd ass alliances or whispering campaigns. Dan, (my Rottweiller) an I hope you win this thing hands down. Even though you are just 19 you really deserve it. Don't let the camera guys forget you. I mean if it means being cocky again you gotta stand out. Be safe and well.
brandon! you are so adorable! my fingers are crossed for you! i love your love for bacon! xoxo MadisonLoren
Branden, I think you are adorable and I actually liked you from the get go. Tyson is right, don't let us lose you under the radar. You have a lot of potential in this business and I actually like that you are laying low in the drama department. On this show ham it up in a good way. Be yourself and the gentleman that you are. Good Luck! P.s. your bacon and eggs looked good!
brandon! i think you are truly amazing! my fingers are crossed for you! i love your love for bacon. good luck brandon! xoxo
I hope you don't let the judges comments get you down. Don't lose your confidence - there's a difference between being confident and overconfident...like they said, you just have to find a balance, then you'll rock it. Best of luck.
I was so offended that you called the photographer a FAG. The word you said to camera that was muted (or perhaps you just mouthed it) was unmistakable. I really hope I am wrong. But if I'm right, two things: 1) I cannot believe that you were not called out on the show for this disrespectful behavior. You'd be fired for a comment like that to a photographer you are working for. 2) That word is disgusting. It's as bad as the N word. It reveals ignorance, and homophobia. You should know that it is now commonly understood that guys who use that word and others like it are most likely insecure with their own sexuality. Is this what you want people to think about you? It's 2009. Wake up.
Hi Branden: Just to remind you, I'm Brandon's Aunt Kim. I'm not a reality TV fan, but have really enjoyed watching you on MMASM. You are a natural model and the camera loves you (even if only in a tie) so remember the camera is your friend. On the runway, hear you mom's voice say: "Posture!" Walk toward the judges as if you own the world, because for those few minutes you own their attention.
Remember: A confident person knows they have the ability to achieve greatness. A cocky person attempts to convince others of their ability to achieve greatness.
Know you are great and let others learn this through your achievements.
Hope to see you when I visit Medford in June. Love, Aunt Kim
Branden - There is a quality in you that is so likeable that you kind of break my heart - You obviously have a future in modeling - Everything isn't connecting together for you right now but it will - I think viewers of the show like me have no idea of all the pressures you guys face - you have a very photogenic face - The picture of you with the steer came out better then you think - You aren't interacting with the steer but still the shot of your face is good - As for the naked photo shoot I thought you came out looking good too - I mean how many times are you going to model naked anyways - Okay so now I'm going to give you my opinion of what happened to you when the judges called you cocky - First of all I'm not so sure you were all that cocky - I think you were just enjoying yourself and having a good time on the runway - But!!! I think you started to forget you were in a competition - You are a likeable guy who was having fun and as the show went on you were sort of expecting the judges to like you and you were just soaking in all of this and you started smiling at the judges like ... well I'm having fun and you judges like me and isn't this all great - you forgot it was a competition - The judges see handsome guys all the time - You started to believe that just walking down the runway and giving them a smile was going to do it for you - Then the judges called you cocky and then you started to drift - So here is the good news - You do have a special quality about you - You just have to realize that and work with it - And you will - You walked great with Sandhurst that time he popped the gum in your mouth - It was fun to watch because you both did it in a cool crisp way - Anyways Branden, I wish you the best of everything - I hope these next few years will be happy ones for you - If Bravo was smart they would have a show tracking your career next year as an up and coming but struggling model - My best to you, Your friend, Steve
