Colin describes his first modeling experience.

Dearest Journal,

Hey.

So…

I made it here. I certainly didn’t expect that one. I’m just starting to become comfortable with the whole being-filmed-all-the-time thing. The first week was quite a wacky adventure. I didn’t really expect to come into this and be a top performer right away … but I didn’t mean to cut it so close and end up near the bottom.

The first photo shoot was really a disaster. I expected to come into this, receive direction from some experts, and use what they said for my shoot. Nope. I’m stuck in a box with no idea where the camera is, totally cut off from any advice the mentors or photographer could provide. Not a great start.

The catwalk didn’t go too smoothly either. I’ve never walked on a runway before and my nerves are totally out of control. I honestly can’t remember a single thing that happened while I was out there. Thankfully the judges are giving me a chance to improve. If I want to stay here there’s really no option for me but to take what they said to heart and work hard so I can impress them next week.

Oh, and everyone in the house is getting along so far. Phew.

XOXO,
Colin

PS: R.I.P. Ken. You were a cool guy.
