Branden talks about being in the final three.

May 27, 20090

This week was fun. I’m getting closer and close to the contract. But anyways this week I loved because we did a whole bunch of stuff. The best part was when we went to Bloomingdale's and that was so much fun. The fire shoot was crazy. I was pumped with adrenaline. The elimination this week was crazy too because I thought for sure I was going home, but instead Mountaha went home which was sweet! Now I have a 1/3 chance to win. I can’t wait to see what the finale is going to be like.

I loved Branden through the entire competition and I am soooo glad that he won over everybody else! I don't care what everybody else says - he grew the most and has a very promising future! Hell yeah!

Ho Hum just doesn't get it. You are the perfect supermodel. Young, slim and playful. Very good looking too. Johnathan looks too old and short. Sandhurst is better but he has squinty eyes and he doesn't fit the clothes as good as you. The judges have kept you because they see you can be great. Good luck!Hope you win!

Oh my goodness, I totally see how you made it to the final three!! I love your confidence, I'm sure, in many ways, love your confidence too! Your eyes are amazing! And I would say you've gotten pushed through week after week because you take criticism to heart and learn and change! GOOD JOB!!!

What's your secret?

Throughout the competition, you showed your immaturity. You seemed to have no life experiences to draw references for posing. Your catwalk was laughable. You didn't seem to comprehend or know anything. Yet the judges pushed you forward time and again (even with grievous errors, while better candidates were pushed overboard. I just don't get SuperModel material from you based on your overall performance...

It's awesome that you beat out Mountaha to make it to the final. You deserved it! For next week, you need to dig deep for some maturity and really bring something different to your photo shoot. Good luck- oh, I think you have a great bod for swimsuit by the way!

Branden, no matter what place you get, I am most sure that you will wind up being #1 at some point in your career. You turned things around when it really counted. Don't ever give up 'cause Branden fans are with you. Best of luck!!!

Oh, Branden, you have come a long way. Like Jenny Shimizu said, you aren't a swimsuit model, but you do look good in a tux. But to my main critique, it's about your runway walk. Although you walk like a tough guy with the snarl on your face and the bouncing left and right as you walk, the main issue that I see with you is your presence. You hunch your back, roll your shoulders forward, and you tuck you butt in. STOP!!! You BEST photo was the nude photo where we could see you body, you helpd your shoulders back and you didn't tuck you butt under. When you walk, hold your shoulders back and slightly sway your back where your butt sticks out JUST A LITTLE BIT. Your nude photo gave such a profession, manly, and strong look to you that I wish you would do the same while on the runway.

Branden you did great and deserve to be in the finals. You are the only one who has what it takes to be a supermodel. I'm sorry but Sandhurst is nice looking but plain, great body but too big for high fashion. Jonathan again great body, but not high fashion plus he's old. What is he 30 or close to it. And short. Don't fashion models have to be like 6.1 at least. I think if the judges are fair you'll win. However thats a big if. That British judge adores Jonathan and has from the beginning.

Branden. Congrats on the final. It's been amazing to watch you grow from a young kid to elegant man (nice suit!). Your enthusiasm has been infectious. It is your secret weapon against those 'old guys'.

Good luck in the final - and in your future career.

You will succeed Branden. Your enthusiasm and energy are a joy to watch, and you are tall, masculine and adorable--I'd say a winning combination.

Branden, you have done a great job. I have watched you blossom from week to week. Keep your chin up, sweetie, you are growing in leaps and bounds. I love that you guys are supportive of one another and have such a great vibe. Best of luck for the final.

Branden, you are an amazing role model and, technically in my opinion, already a supermodel! You have the drive, passion, look (gosh, you're hot ;D) and all around vibe about you that just screams model. Good luck, Branden, and I hope that Tyson and Nicole CAN make you a supermodel! Best of luck!

I have to say I think you are one lucky kid. You are too young and too immature to be in the postion you are at. I am sorry but I am very disappointed in the judges this week.

Congratulations in making the top three!!! You have a lot of potential for someone who is so young. You give off this carefree energy that just draws the audience to you! Modeling definitely gives you many opportunities but you always have to remember that there is always a purpose to your life, chicks and fame will come and go, and then you're left wondering what it is your missing. There is definitely something intriguing about your look, hopefully the judges see that in you. May The Best Man Win!

Youre the best! You have the look of high fashion, which Jonathan and Sandhurst don't. Keep up the good work. I can't help but wonder why Sandhurst is still in since he's more of fitness model. However, Good luck.

I am a single mother of two boys and I have always worried that my children would grow up showing some negative evidence from not having a father around. Branden, your mother did a great job! You are a true inspiration and have shown me differently. Good luck!

Now that Salome has been voted out, you are the next logical choice to win. I have a hard time believing these judges when they claim to want a supermodel and leave someone like Mountaha or Jonathan over Salome. You have a very unique look and attitude plus there is a youthfulness to you that adds a certain charm to your runway and photos. I am already SO tired of Jonathan's sneer and hunchback poses. He has unfortunately settled into a rut. You, however, at least seem to listen and act on what you are told. Good luck to you Branden. I think you definitely have a future in modeling. Keep listening to the coaches. They have helped you get this far!

No matter what happens you are a true gentleman. That alone makes a "super model". Glad you made it to the top three. You deserve it.

Branden,

My entire class celebrated your survival on Wednesday night. They are all seniors and many are 18. Can I tell you how much you have influenced them...not because of the fashion...that's really not that important to them...yet. They are completely invested in your determination and your positive attitude. You've made a huge impact on them. In a way you've become a role model for them because they believe in you...win or lose. Now they see that winning isn't what it's about here. You've managed to stay completely positive, honest and humble. No other model celebrates the successes of the other models as you do. We have noticed how some of your colleagues have become rather full of themselves and yet you remain untouched by all of this...good for you. Of course, you are unmatched by either of the other two guys when it comes to wearing the clothes. That walk with the tuxedo...flawless....no matter who "huge eyeglassman" (does he have eyes?) thought was the best. I'd pick you...not because you're the best model (yet)...but because neither of the other two have the potential you have. As I have said many times in my blogs to you...win or lose...you've already won. Congrats and kudos to you for making this season the reason why many of us watched it. Oh...and if you win...I promised the class a victory party. You're invited. Best... Alex

Branden, brovo for making it this far but you have so much to learn before you could be a Super Model and you would be burnt out in no time. What the show does not exspose you to is the traveling schedule,the long hours,the inter reactions with designers that a Super Model needs. You would be good for small fashion shows or for events in the states but not ready for the big time in the High Fashion world of a SUPER MODEL.

I think that your inclusion of the final 3 is a ridiculous decision on the judges' part. You couldn't walk the runway most of the season, didn't vary your poses, and behaved either too whiny or too cocky. In addition, you didn't even know WHAT a men's suit was until the Bloomies' salesman explained it to you. WTF! How can you possibly be a SUPER model - let alone - a regular, run of the mill model?? You were coddled the entire season by the (ahem) esteemed (& flawed) judges...

Branden,

It is so great to have such a wonderful model to follow on the show this year from Oregon. You have really been fun to watch as you have learned from the other models and the coaches and opened your eyes to the model lifestyle. I wish you the best, whether you win or not you certainly have become a winner in my eyes and am certain you have a career full of opportunities awaiting you. I bet the bacon companies would love to have you do a spot on tv for them - loved that episode!

Branden, you have been an inspiration and a terrific role model. You have come a long way through this competition for just a young guy fresh out of high school, you are setting a awesome example for young models such as yourself who want to excel. I wish you the best of luck and in my eyes you are already a supermodel.

Cheers, Curtis

Branden, please promise the beautiful, single ladies of Manhattan that you will always call NYC home, no matter where your very busy supermodel career takes you :) You're a very strong competitor...your photos are luscious and your catwalk is refreshing. You're handsome, sexy and delightfully spirited. In other words, you're absolutely yummy and any designer would be hard pressed not to book you! Go win this thing!

Mario

Brandon, you need to believe in yourself...honestly, you are better than the other two guys COMBINED...Jonathan only whines and kisses everyone's butt...Sandhurst thinks he's so good looking, yet he's totally clueless half of the time...you are the BEST model they have had this season...keep it up this week...you definitely have a great chance to win it all!!!
