Jonathan describes his disappointment with how this week's shoots panned out.

10TH PHOTO SHOOT

Let’s get rowdy (or not)

Rooftop NYC was our shoot location. Introduced to Dallas Austin the producer, designer of Rowdy clothes. And we met the Scandinavian photographer Patrick. We were going to be wearing the Rowdy clothes for the new campaign. Patrick said he wanted to see us in Rowdy poses. Dressed and ready to go nuts Branden and I started going crazy jumping over things and fighting together. So. Much. Fun. Throughout the day Patrick said he loved what I was doing. Good feedback is always great. I got to see the photos as they were being taken and they looked awesome!

Next day we got our books back. What the f--k!!! I got one f--king group shot where my eyes were closed. I guess somewhere along the lines the brief got changed from Rowdy to luke f--king warm!! None of the pics we got back were rowdy. I’m pissed off!

10TH RUNWAY – HEAVEN ON HEELIES

I’m sure everyone has had some little kid fly past them in a mall on some skates that look just like shoes. In fact they are shoes. Heelys were our fashion accessory today. After a brief practice section I seemed to have nailed it! Styled in a crazy bright outfit. Now, knowing I didn’t really have a photo from the rowdy shoot I had to bring out the big guns in my catwalk. Had to make it difficult. 

Skated to the front and posed then skated backwards outta the pose which got an “Oooh” from the judges. Landed in the bottom three for elimination which sucked and I felt was kind of BS but whatever. Ended up being Jordan who went home. Big shock as I thought out of all the girls she was the most model-like.

Hi Jonathan,

You are my favorite from day 1. You really are terrific; I hope you win and get the recognition you deserve.

Cannot wait to see tonight's episode.

They always blame the photo on you models. You cannot take an ugly picture and it is completely the photographers fault for not getting a good photo (and the judges all know that -- maybe they should also judge the photographers in "Make me a supermodel photographer") -- bitch up an let them have it.

They all know you could walk in to any agency and be hired on the spot.

You just look right as a blonde!

I was extremely confused after watching the last episode. It was obvious that the photographer concentrated a lot of time on you and doing solo shoots with you. I wonder if the judges watch the episodes or are aware of what is going on at the shoots.

I think this goes to shows that its extra hard for a male model to be in the spot light when a heterosexual photographer has the choice of two topless female models

Hey Jonathan,

It was equally disappointing for me to see that even after all that attention from the photographers, the Rowdy shoot didn't really highlight your talent. From what I saw in the show, in addition to what you may have felt in person, you showed real energy.

Oh and while I know a makeover is just the thing to inspire a new approach, I still think blond is your best bet.

Cheers, and good luck mate.

Heather

I totally agree with you about the shoot: apparently, they actually wanted emo kids and half-naked women instead of rockstars!! You did exactly what they wanted and they seemed to love it...I was stunned that you only got one pic! You're the best (and my fave :P) so keep it up. Just get your confidence back and don't let this minor setback hurt your performance.

Jonathan, listen to your fans. Change your hair back ASAP,it is not you at all. There is so much to say to you but bottom line, DON'T GIVE UP. You are better that you think you are. Don't listen to perou if he is bored maybe he should take a nap and stop thinking his shit don't stink. You are the best person on this show and don't let them say otherwise because they will try to beat you down and it looks like they did. Brush it off. Years ago I was you did the modeling school, graduated. Did the acting school, graduated. I had great teachers but not once did they say I'm bored. Listen to your heart and get your confidence back. You have the personality, looks and the body for this industry. You have the best chance to win and your biggest fans will love you even if you don't get the title. Your future in this industry has no bounds and for me, I am very proud of you for staying you.

Dear Jonathan,

You're hair is awesome. Screw those who don't think so! I also think that you did amazing in both the photo shoot and on the heelies. They should have never ever put you in the bottom three. I don't think the judges know what they are talking about and I liked it better when America got to vote for the models! Those judges aren't going to make you famous, your fans are, and the fans should choose who wins. But you're the best!

You rocked!! The person who picked the photos must have been blind and IMO you ruled the runway, the win should have been yours.

you were robbed this week for sure. i'm beginning to think this entire show is rigged. how could you NOT be in more photos? it just didn't make sense to me. you are by far the best model in the house and for some reason i think they put you in the bottom to see how you would handle it. changing your hair color was not the smartest move but that can be fixed with little effort. hang in there. for yourself and your family, don't give up. if you don't take the title, it's ok. we know that you're the best this competition has to offer and the judges are all fools.

Jonathan --

Class will win out, and you've got it. You alone have not gotten involved in trash-talking the other competitors. You've been professional every step of the way, and it has been obvious that you have thought through the different challenges and how best to present yourself. Don't lose faith in yourself. There's a whole world of people watching the show rooting for you. As for Perou and his comments? He comes across as nothing more, nothing less than just one more fashion victim dizzyingly high on self-regard. His sarky comments speak more of him than they do of you.

Jonathan, I have been impressed from the beginning with your professionalism and the intelligence in your approach to modeling. The judges themselves have conncurred that you have it...the ability and natural talent to be very successful in modeling. Regardless of the outcome, this experience will be pivotal in your getting a lucrative modeling contract. Through this grueling competition and hardship, you are ensuring your family's future. In the process, I know you are making them very, very proud. Even I, a stranger, have no doubt!

Best regards from the state of Virginia

Tori

Jonathon, I was as shocked as you that you didn't have any solo pics in the albulm. In my (and many other's) opinion, you were the best (not only in this but basically every other challenge!) It's so sweet that you're doing all this for your family and not just some vain ambition. I highly doubt you're letting them down! Good luck (even though you could win without it)!

Jonathan, I have been cheering for you to win since the opening of the first episode this season. However, you MUST GO AND GET YOUR HAIR COLORED BACK TO BLONDE!!!! The dark color DOES NOT suit you and I think it risks your winning look.

1. Change the hair back ASAP. If it had to be changed, I'd say go lighter rather than darker.

2. Once the girls started shooting topless, I was surprised any of the fellas made it in the final shots. I suspect they were more Dallas's picks than the photographer.

3. In the given course of any reality show, this is generally around the time when someone shocking goes home. I'm just thankful it wasn't you. But regardless of the outcome of this competition, you totally have a career in modeling.

Dude, from what i've seen so far you are the best out of all of them. I was f ckin shocked when i saw you up for elimination and can't believe they didn't use any of your shots in the book. Sorry to hear about finance problems. I'm a college student and know how that goes. Anyway, I think you had awesome shots and the producers didn't want to put you in a top position because they want to create suspence and drama for the show at your expense. I'm rout'n for man and I believe you'll be the one coming out on top. I hope all goes well for you and your family. Go knock em dead! lata dude PC

Hi Jonathan, I live in Canada and unfortunately the website only accept vote from the US. But I hope you win!!! You're very professional at work, and we all know that you have a family to take care of, but hey don't stress! I think if you worry too much sometimes, you get the opposite results. So just cheer up a little. Anyway, hope you win! Go Jonathan go!

Stop the smoking. I don't care what you do in the real world...die as soon as you want from tobacco products.... but in my home I don't want to see anybody smoking. How much did the tobacco industry pay you to smoke on camera? You have a child... do you smoke around the baby?

To everyone, he dyed his hair cuz he felt like it. he thought it would give him a chance for more attention, which i can see it did. Its very tough in this point in the competiton so him making himself noticed was a smart choice. it doesn't matter anyway he's going to win

Johnathan looks gorgeous blonde or darker, his blue eyes look incredible with any hair color. With his facial structure, he looks amazing no matter what his hair is doing! Gorgeous. Im a little stunned at the pictures this week though. The photographer seemed as though he was all about Johnathan in the beginning, and the shots came out amazing, but then not to even have one picture alone in the final 6...I guess you just never know with these photographers... Anyway, I think the finalists will be Johnathan and Sandhurst. They are both gorgeous, great bodies, mature and both have class. They stay away from all of the chatty, behind your back trash talking that goes on in that house and they are both real, geniune people.No matter what, I think they both have a bright future. good luck gorgeous!

hi Jonathan,

sorry about d rooftop photo shoot, i think what happened was that they were looking more edgy faces, and your face is nothing like that man, ur face is perfect & simetrical, u were made for d runaway man u have d perfect look not some rowdy appearance that will be used to sell some perhaps cheap product, dont know if u get me, but what i am trying 2 say is that you r gonna win and everybody knows that just keep it up man, and as one of the judges said "try to give the photographer different faces & emotions", man i'm totally confident in ur victory & i wish u d best luck in ur future career as a supermodel (u deserve it!!!!)

Tamara

It was BS!!! your poses and photos were great!!! i would prefer one of your photos than that last photo they chose with the girls! And I'm being serious! And to my opinion you were one of the BEST in the runway,no kidding! And I LOVE YOU HAIR!! I don't know which look is better for the show or the judges but you look HOT HOT HOT in that hair!!

Jonathan, YOU ARE THE BEST on the show. Just remember what that one judge said about you: "I see money, lots and lots of MONEY!" And we all see that too! Go and get it dude, it's all YOURS for the taking! Even if by some very slim chance you do not win, you will still make more money than anyone else on that show! Your wife and son will be fine and better off if you stay on the show. Just tell her to remember: " LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY"!

Jonathan,

You are definitely my favorite on the show--you have that extra "spark" and I hope you win it all.

My picks for final 3 are: you, Sandhurst, and Mountaha... in that order!

As re the hair... maybe throw some blonde tips on the dark? Give it more dimension--maybe some stronger highlights and low-lights? As short as it is, being dark it needs something more. I would have said "NO!" when they brought out the scissors during the FIRST makeover and cut off all that beautiful length... I was cringing for you and Chris. Fortunately you have a good, strong bone structure and can pull off the shorter hair... and you put the work in to keep your body in amazing shape.

Best of luck and I hope to see you win it all.

Coco

Jonathan, I'll echo everyone else's comments-- you are amazing and it was shocking you weren't chosen for more. Just shows how reading certain people can be difficult. I really hope you win as the fan favorite because you are, just as the judges once said 'the intelligent model' always stepping it up a notch, always delivering something creative . I know you are going to win the whole thing and look forward to seeing you on magazine covers everywhere!!! best, Coco

I just wanted everyone to know how difficult it is for one person in the family to go into the modeling business...as a young girl, I did some runway, and as far as "go-sees" go, it is the most difficult time of a person's life. It's very streeful, and these people on the program are doing what they really feel is the right thing for them...their spouses and significant others and families should just be happy with the fact that they are trying to do what they feel is right...I feel the worst for Jonathan, because he's a proud man, and has basically left his family at one of the worst tomes in this economy...Jonatha, MAN UP, and don't be so proud that you can't get a little help...in the meantime, kick ass and get it done!!! I'm the breadwinner too, and I think that if this is where you shine, GO FOR IT!!! Your wife and child apparently get it, but there's always that feeling that you're not there to provide...FORGET THE PRIDE!!!! Just take care of you right now, and even if you don't get the TOP MODEL, let's make sure you get the FAN FAVE...it's at least going to let you move on and go further in your endeavors...You've got a great, understanding wife, and I give her all the credit in the world, as I know you do also!!! An ex-runway girl, Brenda...Good luck, and keep on doing what you are doing, because you come off as one of the only pure REAL people on the show! Take care, and get everything in life that's coming your and your family's way!!!!See you on the runway at the finale!!! Send your wife and child a big hug and kiss!!!!Brenda

Johnathan,

You will win this competition. You are without a doubt the best all around model in the group. I think your hair color should go back to blonde. The new color doesn't make your eyes sparkle the way they did before the change. Can you do that? I see you've had lots of comments on this. I wish you and your family well. You are drop dead gorgeous and your moral compass regarding your family is the epidome of being a man. How did your wife get so lucky, and... do you have a brother 20 years older perhaps? LOL. Best of luck to you, sweetie. You can do it!

Jonathan, You probably haven't read my past comment but I need to clear the air. Sorry for calling you boring. I was just being an insensitive ass. You are a goodlooking man with an amazing body. I wish you great success in your career and life. Your wife and son are very lucky to have a caring husband and father. You will definately have a long career in the modeling world and I would not be surprise if that success extends to the movie industry. Good people deserve good thing coming to them. Brandon is right to look up to you. You're a good role model for all the young men in America.

Jonathan,

WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO YOUR HAIR!! ITS RIDICULOUS!!! ITS AWFUL!!! IT TOTALLY WASHED YOU OUT!! IT DOESN'T WORK!!

I'm sorry, but if you don't dye it back to blonde, I don't think the judges will like the brown. You were hot!! Key word: were

Go back to blonde, it suits you!

Jonathan... You were completely robbed. I think Dallas Ausitn was trying to market girls more than clothes. You were rowdy...they were naked. Was he deliberately trying to recreate the Kate Moss Calvin Klein ads. Thats the past and you darlin are the future. You've had my vote from day one & I can always pick the winner....because you are one, not just for your looks but for the father & husband you so clearly are as well. 2 things though love...fix the hair color & stop with the cigs.

Viewer

I think the reason why they didn't choose any of your photos as the campaign photo is because Dallas Austin just not interested in male models. I can tell that he likes girls to represent his brand, which is why his brand never got famous like any other celebrities' brands. He just told you that rowdy should be the energy of the brand, yet what he wants is clearly not Rowdy. Just like Rock and Republic, you can tell that the name and the clothes don't go together. So don't worry too much about that. He does not have a clue of what his brand should be, maybe none of those clothes are his designs either.

The darker hair makes your features severe, but I hope you like it. As for the photo, what idiotic choices. Perhaps it was part of a scripting choice to land you in the elimination group, where I don't think you've been before.

The judges are so used to your pictures and catwalk being stellar that it is an "average" achievement for you to do a spectacular job. I look forward to seeing a lot of you EVERYWHERE when this is over. I do hope you win the money, I know you'd love to splurge on your family. My father was a deadbeat, so I have greater appreciation for your devotion to your wife and child.

#1 change your hair back immediately! and #2 i thought you were going to have a million pictures. you looked awesome in the clothes, i can't believe they picked that picture. if i was a photographer i'd NEVER pick a picture in which one my models' eyes were closed. and the girls' pics were not even that amazing. you definitely should have been in more, but i'm really grateful you're still on the show. i want you or branden to win, so keep going strong!

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR HAIR COLOR, DARK DOES NOT DO IT FOR YOU. RUN TO THE SALON AND CHANGE IT BACK TO BLOND ASAP. YOU ARE THE MAN, DON'T MESS IT UP FOR YOURSELF. YOUR LOOK IS VERY HARD AND NOT SOFT AS BEFORE. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH YOUR DECISION ABOUT CHANGING YOUR HAIR, JUST BECAUSE THEY DON'T SHOW A LOT OF YOUR SHOTS. THIS IS LIFE AND SOMETIMES THINGS DOESN'T ALWAYS GO THE WAY WE WANT IT. WHEN THIS HAPPENS WE MAKE THE WRONGS CHOICES TRYING TO MAKE UP FOR WHAT WE THINK IS A FAILURE. PLEASE KEEP YOUR CONFIDENCE AND FIGHT FOR THE PRIZE. CHANGE YOUR HAIR BACK..CHANGE YOUR HAIR BACK. LOVE YA!

Jonathan, I think you are the best one on the show and I really hope you win. I was surprised you were not in more pictures too. You did have a lot of good photos in my opinion. I do like your hair blonde but you still are very handsome because of what is on the inside. I am glad that Jordan got the boot. She should have realized that pride usually comes before a fall. God Bless!

Jonathan , I would not mess with perfection! You are the man to beat in this competition. IN every sense of the word! You have the correct, required height, fit incredible body, correct male model size, professionalism, attitude & you have met all challenges with an all out A+ result., NOT to mention your stunning, striking good looks! You are a SUPER model! If you do not win they have lost a viewer. You ROCK!
