This was quite a week. Yipes.
I’ll just start the story at the photo shoot. Honestly, the idea of this shoot scares me. I’m not exactly known for putting my emotions forward so I’m not quite sure where I’ll need to go (so to speak) to bring something out. I’m happy not to be one of the first ones going. The downtime before the shoot gave me time to relax. I decided to just try to give some power in my eyes to show myself and the judges how far I’d come.
Oh, and Montreal is on the line.
Coming out of the mirror box, I felt alright. I feel like I showed more with my eyes this week than when I was covered in chocolate. But I didn’t do … a whole ton in there. When other people were in the room I could hear loud yells and such. In retrospect, I could have put more emotion into the shoot.
Branden let me know early in the day that if he won the shoot he would take me with him to Montreal. Hearing the photographer name him as a winner was the second best thing to hearing my own name.
We left for Montreal at two in the morning. The luxury bus was totally awesome. No one stayed awake to enjoy it though. We all slept from NY to the Canadian border.
Montreal is gorgeous. I can’t believe I’ve never been there before. Noted: spend more time in Montreal.
Montreal Fashion Week was the first Fashion Week I’d ever been to. There were lots of pretty people walking around everywhere. Branden was visibly excited.
Before going to the casting I was feeling pretty good. I knew I had to actually be confident if I wanted to walk well. Booking the show was probably my proudest moment of the competition so far. In an incredibly short amount of time I’ve gone from never seeing a runway to walking on one at Montreal’s Fashion Week. It feels good.
Montreal also allowed me to bond with Mountaha. She seemed cool around the house but for some reason she was the only girl I hadn’t really talked to. Except for one tiny little mistake on my part (bringing up Jordan in front of Amanda) the four of us in Montreal had an incredible time. A return trip is definitely in order. Maybe I’ll be able to actually hang out with some of the girls I talked to backstage (like Michelle … whoever and wherever you are).
As for the walk this week … I ... don’t really want to talk about it. Clearly what I thought the catwalk assignment demanded and what the judges were looking for were different. I looked more like a fool than a freak. Let’s never talk about it again, k?
Umm.. so I think your awesome, and such a decent person. I know it's corny but stay yourself, don't let anything (anyone) change you.
I'm pulling for you. Get a magazine and look at the expressions on the faces and try to i.d. what they are portraying. Once you can read them, you can do them. Don't be afraid of showing them. Oh, and give up the V-card. It will take a lot of pressure off you, and let her teach you what is sexy about you. I have the hots for Solome, so I can understand how innocence abandoned can be alluring.
Congratulations on Montreal. You shined.It is a great city, too.
Colin, I know you have the talent to win this thing! You're my inspiration. I hope to become a model someday and work with you, so don't let me down! oh, and don't worry about what the people say at the house. I think it's sexy to be a 21 year old virgin. =]

Colin, you have a lot of potential. You have a beautiful face, a perfect face for a model. Your awkwardness and vulnerability make it all the better, however you still have a long way to go. I'm rooting for you.
Congrats on the Montreal Fashion Week booking
Oh, you're just too adorable. I just hope you know that you have stolen every girl's heart...inclucing mine :D
you're completely awesome and it was nerve wracking almost seeing you off! but beaucoup congrats on montreal! also, with all due respect to carl, don't just give up the v-card to "relieve pressure" or whatever that nonsense is. just do what feels right for you.
Hey Colin, don't worry about that crazy runway challenge. i watch every week and cheer for you and Mountaha. i was stoked to see both of you book the deal in Montreal. as a former Academic Team Captain myself, i want to wish you all the best. keep it up :)
I would say that was a close one, but you obvs werent going home--You have way too much potential, and the judges knew it. you better kick some a** next week!
My friend and i really think u have what it takes to be a great model，just be confident.We are big fans from China.
Colin I think you have natural talent to be a model. All the ladies seem attracted to you. You just need a crash course in modelling.
You rock dude!! I loved seing you guys in Montreal, which is my home town :) If you get to come back in the neibourhood you gotta try A) the old port (lots of history), B) the nightlife and C) the food (lots and lots of cuisine from all over the world). Hope you continue to improve and have fun. Bonne chance!
Uhm, Colin. I love you. Don't second guess yourself, and just give it your all. The judges will definitely see it. Good luck :D
You have the most comments on the blogs, therefore-- you are the hottest. WE LOVE YOU!!!! xD And I am beyond totally hot for you. You have so much potential to be amazing. Don't doubt yourself and just DO it!! And ok, do NOT listen to Carl ^ above, don't live out his virgin-losing fantasy for him. People these days. *tsk tsk*
I think you are very adorable and possess good attitude and diligence to be a great model. This time is a narrow escape, but I have faith you would be better next time. Please stay with us longer
Colin, I love that you’re waiting for the right person. I'm 22 and waiting for the right guy. You give me hope that there is a guy out there worth waiting for.
Colin, I freaking love you!!! You are so cute and shy and adorable its not even funny! Like when you got up you courage to talk to the model in Montreal and it turned out she was only 16! Well at least it was a start, and hang in there you'll get better. You have no reason to be scared of girls cause you're soooooo hott! Like Karyn says in that 'Clark Kent' persona. Luv Ya!
