My final photo shoot was on a military ship. We were supposed to have a threesome and it was difficult for our group. I found it a little weird that Jonathan was so comfortable being intimate with other women even though he’s married. The people on set were joking around saying he would have to get a divorce after his wife saw this and that made Kerryn really uncomfortable. So I wanted to make her smile and lighten the mood a bit so I made a few jokes and I guess the photographer took that as me being very giggly. He was kind of a perv too. He was like telling people to make out and really just crossing the line. It was disgusting that everyone was so desperate to win this competition and I’m not OK with that. I have boundaries and I wasn’t about to make porn or exploit myself. I wanted to learn about modeling and I feel a little disappointed. The runway challenge was still about breaking the rules so the men wore skirts and the girls wore suits. I actually felt good about this but in the end I was eliminated for having a bad attitude. Which is strange because the judges didn’t have a single conversation with us to know what my attitude was like. And Gabe who was also in the bottom got to stay because he tried to smile at the end of the runway. What the f**k is that? So in the end this competition had nothing to do with modeling. It was just a TV show in disguise.
As for me in the house, I tried so hard not to be the bitch that they wanted to cast me as and I tried so hard to do nice things for people and be a good person but it didn’t matter because they all chose to hate me anyway. I wish I would’ve been the bitch I really am so at least I wouldn’t have looked so pathetic. And for all this sh*t I refused to talk about anyone on the show f**k it … here’s how I really feel about everyone:
Salome: Fake b*tch.
Jordan: Spawn of Satan. B*tch who likes to make others feel bad.
Mountaha: Most annoying. Rude.
Amanda: Selfish/self-involved. Whines a lot. Weak person who can’t have her own opinion unless it’s validated by someone else.
Gabe: Obnoxious. Rude. Follower. Dull.
Colin: Know-it-all. Arrogant. Attention begger. Tries so hard to be unique.
Kerryn: Fake/pretends to be your friend. Liar. Two-faced.
Everyone else, who cares.
Man FINALLY you're gone! I was tired o watching you complain about EVERY photo shoot & catwalk...FYI versatility it not a bad thing
I was surprised about this final outcom. I thought for sure who deserved to be eliminated was Gabriel. His catwalk sucked! BIG TIME!
Wow! (boggle) Well, I have no idea if the critiques of some of the cast members were accurate (as far as opinions can be said to be such). Didn't C.J. have at least one friend?
I didn't like what Tabitha did to C.J.'s hair.
I really liked you the most throughout the show thus far, but I think this was a bad exit. Regardless of if it's true, I wish you wouldn't have talked shit here. It just validates the others in any complaints about you being dramatic. I know the footage of whats actually happening on the set gets butchered in the editing room to create a tv show. The perception of anyone that matters can pick up on that. I think you're great and will totally support you in any future modeling endeavors, but I feel like you're above modeling in a way. Everyone that said that you have the wrong attitude is right, however its not a bad, misunderstood attitude you have about your personality and the way people perceive it, it's your attitude on modeling itself. It is pretty shallow, silly, and sometimes meaningless, but it's a professional career. It's a serious business for all involved with it, and you have to respect that in through attitude.
C.J. I really hope you realize how absolutely stunning you really are, and you have so much potential in this business. I do hope that you find a way to work through the ghosts in your closet because that is the only thing stopping you from being absolutely unstoppable in the modeling industry because you are obviousely able to let down your walls, based on the dressup game you and the others played. ENJOY your beauty, You are blessed and I love your hair also, it gives you a very special and unique look that is not like anyone else. Who cares about anyone else, but remember, everyone in the world will react to what you portray in this businness and in any given situation, you dont have to change you, just get think twice before you react. Some things are better left unsaid. Good Luck to you !!
I really was pulling for you! I also hated what Tabitha did to your hair. You look better as a blonde. They couldn't admit "Oh, we made a mistake about your hair!"
I would have laughed, too, during those embarrassing moments. That photographer was a jerk. Those photographers really think well of themselves. A little bit of success...makes some heads real big!
CJ good luck and continued success.
I feel horrible for you, CJ. I wish you knew what a knockout you are. You weren't presented as a bitch... at least no more than anyone else. But your insecurity and discomfort are painfully visible. Because of that, modeling is the wrong business for you. I've been working with models for years -- producing commercials and photo shoots. The crazy scenarios they put you in on this show are NOTHING compared to the kind of impossible things we ask of you in this business. These top model shows are pretty good at weeding out the ones who aren't willing or able to handle the job. As a real model you're treated like a prop, literally, and expected to take it. We will change the scenario in midshoot, talk about you like a piece of meat, and ignore you the rest of the time. Nobody wants to know you're a real person with feelings. We're looking for gorgeous workhorses. It's not fair, it's inhuman, but it's true. You must have a ridiculous blend of great confidence and no ego. A rare few meet these standards... and they're paid quite handsomely. I hope you find a career you love, one that's more suited to your qualities. And let me just add that your dark hair looks fierce. Don't ever go back to blond!
CJ - you are beautiful and I wish we could have gotten to know you better, because you seem like a real person. However, I agree with previous posters in that you often seemed incredibly uncomfortable and insecure and you just aren't cut out to be a model. Your comments about people paying lots of money to be blond and your fear of being a boring brunette were offensive. And your so called "sacrifice"...you just seem like you have a lot to learn. Not just your attitude, but your comments made you come off as a selfish, whiny, haughty snot with a bad attitude. Despite that, I bet there's a lot of good in there. I sure hope there is.
CJ, You are a beautiful model with amazing eyes! Not one of the ladies is as naturally lovely as you. Your photos were really stunning even after the hair color blunder by T. What Tabitha did to your natural blonde hair (most ladies will kill for including Tabitha, admit it ladies ), was a CRIME. I think that sent the tone. You are a gorgeous catalogue/cosmetic model with allot of potential. Honestly, I would NOT have reacted positively to the hair color change either. Great things will happen for you. Best of Luck!
Well, CJ, was really hoping you'd pull through.
It is unfortunate to see you go. From the beginning, I was drawn to you as one of the strongest potential competitors, and definitely, by far,the most attractive of the girls. I don't think you got a fair shake at all. The others in the house seemed quite immature in the way they treated you and spoke about you behind your back. I am sure their rudeness made it harder for you to open up. A real shame because I was really pulling for you.
I wish you the best of luck in whatever you choose to do. And, though i loved the brunette look, I preferred you as a blond, and think tabitha did you a disservice.
You did do a great job on the show and I enjoyed that you were not a kiss ass. But as far as Amanda I know exactlly how she is and you forgot fake and a lying ass BITCH! She is also a thief. So you hit that on the head. Just keep up your great work and you will make i when it's your time.
you are absolutely gorgeous... but im sure you already know!
it sucks that everyone else in the house targeted you. i know what that's like, and also know that no amount of good things you do for others will change how they think about you. it really sucks when others misunderstand you, so i commend you for being as strong as you are.
i agree you should not have been kicked off for your attitude (granted that it can come in the way of working) as this is a competition, not a popularity contest.
i'm so sorry about that u are gone... u're one of my favorite model and what im' saying is true, i agree with u that the judges didn't really know ur true face, they made a wrong decision to kick u out, also on making ur hair, get back ur blonde hair CJ!!!! i love it and i think u look gorgeous in blonde, forget about the competition and make it work baby!! can't wait to see u in the future.
love u CJ and wish u all the best!!
2 me CJ is the prettiest. Sorry 2 c u go! I hope next season the models r better looking; they're jus avg; except Jonathan.
I think you took this opportunity for granted. Why would you even go into a competition like this, or even a career, when you can't stand anything that comes with it? The intimate photo shoots, the hair change, the outfits that are sometimes painful to wear.. you complained about EVERYTHING. So i don't blame them for eliminating you for a bad attitude.. it wasn't a supermodel attitude. You are pretty but that's all you really have when it comes to being a supermodel. Get it together before even thinking about trying again. You need to become more confident before stepping in front of people who can make you.
I would say everyone u just bashed with the exception of Gabe was better at modelling than u. Weird that u didn't have anything good to say about anyone, only negative stuff. Anyways, good luck..in life
CJ, I was really sad to see you go, you were my favorite. I really feel like I can relate to you, because you said something about how it takes a while for you to warm up to people, and that's how I am! It can be really difficult sometimes, and a lot of times people misunderstand me, and don't take the time to get to know me. I know the editing probably portrayed you the wrong way, and I wish I could've gotten to know the real you. You seem very smart and so cool! :D
Oh and btw, you're absolutely GORGEOUS!! Way prettier than any of the other girls on the show. And I honestly love you as a brunette! You're just stunning...especially in that last photoshoot! O_O
Good luck with everything!! :)
I can't believe you were eliminated! :( I think you have the most potential and I love your I don't give a F*** attitude. I think you have the most personality out of all the other contestants. I hope to see you get big in modeling! I believe in you!
CJ SORRY TO SEE U GO I WANTED TO SEE YOU GO THE WHOLE WAY AND BE THE SUPER MODLE YOU ARE YOUR HAIR LOOKED GREAT ANY WAY YOU HAD IT CAUSE YOU ARE THAT BEAUTIBUL U COULD OF DONE IT YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT MOST OF THE GIRLS THEY WANT YOU TO BE STONG THEN WHEN YOU ARE THEY VOTE YA OFF KEEP IT UP THO CAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO BE ASUPER MODEL KEEP REAL SEEYA ON THE RUNWAY BEV
Coming onto the show, I believe you should have known that they were going to change your hair. THEY know what is best for you and if you didn't want your hair changed then you should have stuck with your gut. But no, instead you get your hair changed and continually complain about it. You set yourself with that attitude. It was great to see you happy in one of the episodes but right after that you went back to your poor attitude. As for that photoshoot where it was the three of you, there are going to photoshoots that make you uncomfortable. You should have also known this going onto the show. Another thing, you are such a negative person and you need to drop that. It is so annoying seeing someone complain about other people. Didn't you ever learn if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all. I truly think you could succeed as a model, if you change your attitude and learn more about the modeling business. I think a lot of people want to see you succeed. You still have a lot of growing to do as a person and model. Wish the best of luck.
When I heard that nobody judge say to this terrific little model "There's no crying in modelling" I wanted to slap her through the TV. There's no crying in baseball you moron if you're reading this. Get it right. Who do think you are? Of course there's crying in modelling. Why not? There's crying in acting. You are just obnocious and mean. I feel sorry for you. You aren't anybody. No one knows you and you are not qualified to judge anyone. That model has more of what it take to be a model than you ever had and you know it. She's very European and don't be surprised when you open a fashion magazine and see her there. You're the loser. No wonder you are judge. Those that can do --those that can't think they can judge. In your case it's neither.
There's more to life than just being pretty. You only put people down when you left. Maybe if you had looked like you wanted to be there you would've stayed. It's a shame that you left you probably could've gone far. Anyway good luck with your career.
C.J., I acually like you and I think you were misunderstood or misrepresented, I am not sure but at the beginning of the show I chose you for being one of the top 2 or 3. I have been looking at fashion shows and magazines for years being in the business. You take great photographs and I am sure you will work in the print side. (you had the prettiest face of them all). I don't care for most of the others gaining up on you like that..of course its going to make a person feel lousy. They were mean, not you so hang in there and be yourself.
CJ, You were not my favorite on the show, but I like you. You will make a great print model. I don't think the runway is taylored for you. I thought you were with Janis Dickenson models? You are entitled to your own oppinion, and are somewhat right about some of the models but, Salome is not a fake. You would have to walk a mile in her shoes to understand. I was raised simular to her, and I know where she is comming from. Colin is a know it all, because he is very intelligent. Colin is VERY unique. Who do you know has the brains, and the looks, and is/was a virgin, who can take a great photo effortly with not one ounce of training. Don't be bitter. You can work as a model, just change your attitude.
that was a dumb move throwing everyone under the bus. dont you know not to burn your bridges? you are trying to make it in the modeling industry. how do you think perspective employers are going to view you if you are just a whiny little bitch, egh and this person is mean, and oh this person is stuck up. who wants to hire someone who cant get a long with anyone. god grow up.
