12th Photo Shoot - Firestarter

Late at night on our way to the middle of nowhere we pull up to a warehouse. WTF is going to happen here? We walk in to be met with Tyson and Nicole and a huge explosion on either side of us. Everyone jumped, including me just a little bit.

This shoot was going to involve fire and a lot of it.

My fear is that the judges keep seeing pictures of me looking kind of crazy so I had to give them at least one normalish one.

I actually stayed pretty still as to not get crazy face during the shoot.

12th Runway - Double O Heaven - James Bond

Dressed to kill, quite literally. Boys in DJ suits and Mountaha in a Malandrino hot little number.  The boys all looked great but I felt really bad for Monty as they decided to put her in a brunette wig, which I don’t think did her any credit. I think the wig looked really fake which through no fault of her own, made her look a bit many.  She’s awesome and I feel like she got a raw deal coz it was such an important runway.  Boys all walked fine and poor Mountaha was sent home. She was so upset; it was heartbreaking.

An all-boy final!

My entire family was in total shock that you did not win. You had the strongest walk, and the strongest photos out of the three men still standing. You are a beautiful man, and I wish you and your family much success in life!!!!

I agree with everyone here. I thought that all of you guys were remarkable and if there could be three winners, great! BUT you exhibit an amount of maturity and professionalism that NY Model Agency will be sorry it missed out on. Keep it up and I know, you know you'll get there!

Jonathan, I have faithfully watched every episode. Being a former model, I was shocked that you did not win! You're going to make it, don't give up. My best to you and your family.

You should have won!! No doubt or question at all!! You proved more than a pretty face. You have something that shines from within and you will go far. Keep your head and heart in tact and love your family..it is what keeps you strong. Good luck, but you wont need it. You will be a huge success!!

I dont care much for the modeling field, I just happened to be watching the show at the time my car stereo broke and so I brought it into the house earlier and it took me about 3 hours to fix...blah anyways I had all that time to watch the finale shows at the same time of tearing down my stereo.... I would have guessed at least the model's bodies "physique" would have been a factor just from watching, I guess with my account balance of 2 pennies here...... I would say your physique had the best balance with good muscle seperation especially in the legs "quads".... development that comes with maturity. not that the others didnt look well too. The package was all there.

If Bravo has some decency and compassion they should offer Jonathan some help in getting his career started. Judging from last year's contestants, hardly anybody makes it after the end of the show.

Jonathan comes across not only as a very professional and intelligent man but also as a great person, he did not deserve to be told the way he was told in this absurd final outcome. It was painful to watch the way it was handled.

Keep your head up Jonathan! You should have won hands down! Brandon deserved runner up, because he has improved so much, however I believe he was chosen for to make the show more interesting and shock everyone. This is however a show's reasons for selecting a winner and it does not reflect what the majority of people feel and think about what makes a true supermodel. You have style and grace and your sexy as hell, you are going to be a very successful man. I think most people will agree with me, the shows credibility and new york model management's credibility are somewhat questionable. Hey its just my opinion. Good luck in life!

Jonathan, I think you are amazing ! I'm shocked that you did not win. I'm sure we will see you as a super model. Did you ever think about acting ? Your captivating on screen, and extremely sexy !

Jonathan was robbed. Branden seems like a nice guy but there's no way he should have won this. Jonathan and Sandhurst have been the front-runners for some time now, and to have Branden pose for a couple of good photos in this final episode and wipe out everything that came before is ridiculous. I can only guess the judges picked Branden as the winner to create more buzz since it was a shocking climax to the show.

Jonathan,

You've been my fav since day one. Your professionalism, positive attitude, and ability to take direction has surely made your wife, son, and family very proud of you. I think you've proven time and again that you have what it takes to win this thing, or at the very least to have a successful career regardless. You're already a supermodel in my book, and I wish you and yours all the best in the future.

Best wishes in the finale and in life!

Looking forward to your win Jonathan :) I'm NOT looking forward to only seeing you in still shots though. You are such an awesome man and I hope you don't limit yourself to just modeling - looking at your bio that doesn't seem likely. Sorry to gush but I'm recently divorced from a man who didn't understand his family responsibility at all so you have hit a tender spot in my wounded heart. I'm about 10 yrs older than you and I pray God brings me an older version of you :)

I was just looking at the bio for Jonathan and see that you are already represented by two agencies. Why do you feel you need this one and what makes it so important that you should beat out the others? The money? The prestige? Your bio said you own your own construction company. So, why do you need the money?

Just wanted to ask.

Randall

I must say that although Sandhurst does have a great body, I think your's is better. You've done great thus far and I really enjoy watching the show, especially when they show your ass while changing. haha!! Anyway, keep up the good work and keep those elbows in!!

Jonathan! I'm sure I can't speak for all gay men but for myself, since the first time I saw you on the show, I thought you were frigin hot!!! You are GORGEOUS!!! You have a fantastic body, killer smile, and an awesome personality. I have to say, I did enjoy the photo shoot when you were naked! All that was covering you was that long scarf. WOW!!! I feel Sandhurst is a strong competitor but I know you can win this! You've got what it takes and there's no way Branden is going to win. I was quite surprised to see he's in the final 3. Good Luck Jonathan! I look forward to seeing the finale. Continued success and happiness to you and your family. Sincerely, Stephan Phoenix, AZ USA

Hey UpperWestSider, hate to burst your bubble, but, you are SOOOOOO wrong, besides an underwear model, he is a supermodel and will do ALL sorts of modeling, he will make PLENTY of money to live in a very nice place in NY with his family!!!

Jonathan, you have consistently impressed me with your professionalism, good looks and competence as a model. Your lovely personality is a huge win.

I also wanted to say that I am really impressed that the three of you have such great camaraderie and are always supportive of one another, even though you are competing for the top spot. It is so much nicer than watching how bitchy girls can get. WELL DONE! It is really enjoyable viewing.

Best of luck to the three of you. I don't have a favourite... in my opinion, you all deserve to be supermodels. Bravo!

Jonathan,

In response to "Viewer" who frets that he/she won't watch the show one more week of Branden makes it....um...hate to break the news ..there's only one week left...it's the finale..duh. And personally, Branden is the only high fashion model on the show. And for the record...he is gorgeous. So there.

Jonathan,

I was so impressed to see the way you walked at your recent runway! I have to say "you've got the full package". Congratulations to you in advance. I am 110% sure you will make it!

Can't wait to see you in the magazine or ads!

You're fan!

I just wanna keep this short and sweet. I respect you because your an honest to god good person who deserves to be there. Your number one priority is your family which is something I respect immensly. Also, if you don't win on the show you technically already have because you've gotten too much exposure to go unnoticed. Good luck doll!

So HAPPY you are still in the finals. Yeah! The race is on now. May the best man win ... YOU. As far as the decision to send Mountaha home. I think it was the right one. She did not work that dress on the runway at all. She walked like a football player in it.

Good luck!!!!

Jonathan,

I'm glad you made through to the final. Well deserved. However, it seems as though you and Sandhurst have reversed positions on the totem pole. Earlier in the season, S had the better catwalk, while you excelled in the photos. Then, your walk became stronger, while his pix excelled. It should be a horserace next week. Except for that lame one - Branden! He has no business being in the top 3!

Recently, I found Mountaha and BabyBoyBranden to be annoying, by being alternatively whining and cocky. However, M's photo was better than The Bland One (even if it was by luck). She should not have been dismissed in favor of the hillbilly. Y

You seemed very sympathetic toward her in the end shot. Thank you for showing that side. Good LUCK!!!

Jonathan!!... seriously boy, you and Mountaha are the only reasons I have been watching this whole show in the first place!. . The best looking guy and the best looking girl (in my opinion) who both had amazing potential at being a Supermodel. I swear you HAVE to win this.. do everything you can, you deserve it..not only for yourself, but for your wifey and baby boy who i'm sure is going to have his daddies handsome looks :) I wish you all the best! cheers, from Canada

Hey Jonathan. You've been my favorite since day one. I'm glad the show has been about modeling this time instead of the the one gay/straight couple in the house. I think you've done a great job and I know you'll go somewhere. You remind me a little of Simon Baker. I mentioned on this blog last season how I've always had a crush on Simon Baker and then the next thing I know he's starring on the "Mentalist." Who knows, maybe they'll cast you on a show. Hang tight with your wife and don't let the modeling take you away from each other. Good luck!

Jonathan, What a pro you already are. I am glad to see you in the final three and hope to see you win. Too bad it wasn't Mountaha, Salome, Sandhurst and you. Mountaha is a pro, Salome has a photogenic face, Sandhurst has the whole package, but you are a mega star. Lucky family. Don't ever let the glamour of it all go to your head. You are every woman's dream husband. yum, yum....happily married for thirty years..it gets better and better. love from a 53 year old Texas gal.

For one who is in the running for the best interests... I would say it is you... You are not in it for just the cover on a magazine, or a walk down the runway... you have a beautiful wife and child to support... Maybe it is not as "macho" as a construction job or as elite as sitting behind a computer monitor all day eying the wall street journal, it IS something... something that is worth to struggle for, to fight for... I am not saying the others aren't worth the fight as well.. but what is their fight for? Prestige? Recognition? Fame? The bottom line is that THIS won't last forever... Outer Beauty WILL fade in time.. And they will find themselves in similar circumstances sooner or later... How much will this matter to them then? To become a supermodel? For what purpose? To get married to someone famous, then divorced? You've been THERE already! You ARE there already and are ahead of the game!

Jonathan, even though I like Brandon waaaaaaaay better than you, here is my advice: If you wanna win, you need to stop whinning and stop reminding us every five minutes about your wife and your financial problems, etc. This is a supermodel competition, not a PBS special.

YOU HAVE THE FACE, BODY, AND THE PERSONALITY....GREAT WITH PEOPLE. I HOPE THIS WILL NOT BE A ROBBERY LIKE ADAM ON AMERICAN IDOL. IF SO, I WILL BE SOOOO SICK. GOD BLESS! HOPE YOU ARE THE FAN FAVORITE TOO!!!!! I VOTED FOR YOU ONLY.

Jonathan, Your a good looking guy. I wish you the best in life. Make sure modeling is something you really want to do because it will drain you if you are only doing it for the money. I get it! Please be happy because no matter what, you are good to go! Best of luck to you.

Okay Johnathon I must say when I first saw you a few weeks ago I though, WOW what a very nice looking man, and believed that you had this contest in the Bag!!!! And then, Dude??? What happen to your hair and eyebrows it looks like they have been painted on...When you changed your hair to black, it took away from your sexyness... I know you changed it back but something left you when changed hair coloring... Whats the really story????
