Jordan

Jordan describes her disappointment with the Helly challenge and her subsequent elimination.

May 12, 20090

My exhaustion from last week has poured into this week. I tried to keep my head high after last week’s slap in the face. I still feel strong in this competition because I know there are still weak links in the house. I just have to fight through this mess and show the judges that I can be a supermodel. I was off to a rough start this week, but I had to suck it up and prepare myself for this shoot. For this shoot, we end up on a rooftop to discover our next challenge: a shoot for Rowdy clothes campaign. We find out that we’d be doing single and group shots and we’d be changing outfits throughout the day. We had to work extra hard, because not everyone was guaranteed a picture. What a stressful shoot. The guys had a huge advantage because by the time the girls were finally finished with hair and makeup, the guys had already been shooting and were already changing into their third and fourth looks.  I know it’s like this in the real world, but this is still a competition, and every little detail could send you home. Lucky for the girls, we had a topless shoot, which I figured would guarantee us at least one shot. Sure enough, I got three shots, two of which were the topless shots. I liked my pictures, but for some reason, I still felt a little nervous. Once again, I knew I’d have to redeem myself on the catwalk.

So it’s another elimination. I thought the catwalk would be a normal one, but surprise surprise, it was quite the opposite. We find out that instead of walking down the catwalk, we’d be skating on shoes called Heelys. Everyone seemed so excited about it except for me. I thought I was taking crazy pills. Was I the only one who thought this was absolutely ridiculous? This late in the competition is when we need to do normal walks. I’m so sick of terrible walkers sliding through the competition undetected because half the time we aren’t even judged on our walks.  So once again, Branden gets a get out of jail-free card because after practicing, he was one of the few that was very skilled on the Heelys. I felt so stupid. I thought these would be easy, but they weren’t. I didn’t have a lot of time to practice, but I tried to practice every chance I got. I was getting so close to taking the wheels out and just walking, but I thought I’d instantly go home for it. I knew I’d have to at least try to skate, even if I looked stupid. I couldn’t give up.  After the catwalk was all said and done, I ended up looking so stupid, and the judges told me I should have just taken the wheels out. So much for "A" for effort. I was totally ripped apart this week. Even Nicole felt is necessary to throw me under the bus. I was really caught off-guard this week. I didn’t know what to say or do. Nicole got on me about personal stuff, and the judges acted like this was the 10th time they’ve told me to change something, and that this was the last straw. I was genuinely confused. For the first time here, I was speechless. When I found out I was going home, I was in complete shock. I thought I wasn’t going to get emotional, but to my surprise, I did. I was sad to leave the house and leave all the friends I made. I didn’t really learn how to skate in time.   told myself I couldn’t leave bitter but after being ripped apart by everyone and after the personal comments were made, it was hard not to leave bitter.  But this is the choice I made, and I had to go at some point. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. I feel like I did the best I could, and I stayed true to myself. I hope I got to see and work with everyone I met here. I loved it.

Yea it may seem like Jordan didn't like Amanda but come on seriously? She wasn't completely nasty. I worked as a cocktail server at a casino and you want to see nasty just work as a cocktail server. The competition is also very bad and stressful and let me tell you since I had a prime spot. So many women were nasty to me and even been drugged. Obviously these comments were made by people who don't have idea what competitions about.

Just watched the episodes. Why were you soooo fixated on Amanda? All those nasty comments about people (especially Amanda) just made you look bad. Your pictures were great and you are a beautiful girl. I have no doubt you will be a model. Supermodel made a stretch for. You kind of look like every other model out there plus you have a bad attitude but good luck! The judges were absolutely right on about kicking you off.

Jordyn,

I was soo elated when you were kicked off. Apparantly the person who commented before did not watch the show. Jordyn you constantly berated Amanda, you said you hated her, You were so happy when she was eliminated...I was soo happy when you were! I would not have wanted someone like you, with your nasty attitude to represent the fashion industry. As you said "little do they know, you create drama" Well, you did a great job creating your own. Try working on being a nicer person. It's not necessary to be soo nasty. I don't recall Amanda saying hateful things about you.

I don't know Jordan personally, and I don't think anyone else here knows Jordan personally. So going as far as saying "You would be a nightmare to be around with all of your vicious mean antics.." Yikes! That is one huge assumption.

I have gone to various sites and listened to interviews with every model that has been eliminated and almost every model has said, "Jordan was the most fun to be around," and, "Jordan was one of my favorites." I'll assume that Jordan wasn't as bad as Bravo is making her look based off of what the people that had to live with her for all that time had to say.

Besides, don't you have to be outspoken and opinionated to survive in this business? I thought the fashion industry wasn't for the faint of heart. Meh, that's my two cents. I refuse to bash any of these kids. We have no idea what they are really like! I just know they are very brave to put themselves out there like that. I wish I could have mustered up the courage for something like that when I was younger! Cheers!

You would be a nightmare to be around with all of your vicious mean antics. I am so glad you got kicked off, you don't deserve it, for you childish, whiny, complaining behavior. It was not cute at all. I hope that you have learned a lesson. Take care of yourself and leave other people out of it. You are a bully because you are scared.

Jordan - we watched the show last night and it was a snooze fest. They are going to regret the day they let you go. I'll say it again and again that not only were you the best model you were THE most entertaining. You are missed and the show lacks alot because you are gone. I think I'm done watching. sorry BRAVO.

Rindy

You were the only reason we watched the show and the only one who was worthy of the title. I don't really care who wins now, because it wasn't you. Wishing you best in your career. Oh, and people, and by people I mean HATERS, PLEASE quit taking yourselves and this show so seriously - I mean really! Get over yourselves.

Oh "what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!" You said something to the effect "I create the drama, I am interested in the drama." You deceived yourself when you made nasty comments about Amanda on live TV. Did you not think they would bounce back on you? As Tyson said "Take what you learned here..." I hope you learned to be nicer to people and stop creating drama and just be a better person. That is the true measure of success.

I did feel badly about the Heelys. You were criticized for choosing to try to walk with them, and not realizing that was a mistake. But I think if you'd chosen to take the wheels out, you would've been criticized for your refusal to take a risk. It was a lose-lose situation and yes, I'm sorry, Branden was given an edge there.

Then again, I don't think you really were trying to change or improve during the show. You wanted to eat your ice cream sandwiches and bask in the glory of your good genes, and you actively refused to exercise and tone up. You admitted to phoning it in a few times. Maybe it's just a lack of confidence, but I think there were a few times that maybe you felt overwhelmed or exhausted and gave up. That's fair. I've never been on a reality show. I'm sure it's a grind. But maybe if you'd pushed more.

That having been said, I think you drew the short straw. No one was really awful the week you were sent home. Someone needed to go. On another week, with different challenges, it wouldn't have been you. Just goes to show that this is reality-tv, not the real world. In the real world, your agent wouldn't send you on the Heelys catwalk go-see or whatever it is (I'm not an expert or knowledgeable at all). Good luck.

What goes around comes around, all you have done is bad mouth people, especially Amanda, she was bounced and so were you and you deserved it.

jordan, don't listen to anything negative that people have to say. you have been my favorite model this season and when you were eliminated, i was disappointed. i looked forward to seeing you each week and now it's pointless.

you have a great look and i'm sure i'll see you in the near future in the industry. keep pursuing your goals. while some are hating on you, just know it's because they're jealous. you're awesome, jordan.

Jordan - I would never claim to know you, even slightly, when all I've seen is select footage chosen by the editors. The only people who know you are the people who lived with you through this process. ALL of you had things to say about each other, yours was more of the focus because they needed a rivalry. So I would never try to make the claim that you are a horrible or even a fantastic person based on what I saw of you on a show that is meant to entertain. There is good and bad in us all and for all the haters out there, they need to look in the mirror and be honest. What I did see in you was a girl who was an amazing model and a girl who had a lot of fun with the people you lived with. Judging by all the reactions when you were eliminated, I think you will be greatly missed by your fellow models and you will be missed by majority of the viewing public. I know you will be successful - its a given. If Branden or Salome win, then it will be so obvious this show is rigged.

Of all the girls on the show I feel you truly have the most potential to "go all the way". You might not have won this particular competition, but you definitely have what it takes to make this into an incredibly prosperous career.

On a personal note, no one in my viewing household ever cared for your personality much. Frankly though in this business it doesn't matter. You have the look that will sell merchandise, and still photographs don't speak a whole lot.

Sweetest Jordan, I am so going to miss you! You were and still are my favorite. You did not deserve elimination. I know you will have way more success than anyone they crown "super-model" because you've already achieved that status. I can't wait to see you prove all the judges wrong when you rock catwalks and billboards around the world. Kudos to you!!!

WOW....Jordan is gone????? I can not figure that one out. I mean come on really....WHY???..."I am bored with Jordan", or "Jordan, you are fading". What does that mean? I think the judges look very very bad with that decision. The show should have re-thought that one. Good luck Jordan. So sad

for all of ya'll complaining about how crappy it was that jordan got voted off. this is bravotv, the network that kicked Jerrel off of Project Runway so Kenley could go to fashion week. clearly the producers and other people have more of a say than the actual judges do. it's a shame, but it's about ratings...

can not believe that Jordan is gone! The judges made a huge error. She was definitly the best female. Just beautiful walk and photos. I won't watch anymore. The show chose the wrong one to go home.

Jordan may of only been in the bottom twice but she was rarely in the top. She had been in the middle of the pack for quite awhile now and the judges had made that clear more then once. Her attitude was horrible, she didnt deserve to win and I for one am glad that she is gone. Treat people the way you want to be treated.

Jordan, I know you will be successful and I wish you nothing but the best. I can't say I will watch the show now...but I will definitely be looking for you in the fashion world! I don't know if you have a blog other than this one, but keep us updated as far as your modeling career. You're stunning and I know you are great. You are the funniest, sweetest, coolest model ever!

Jordan,

I was so shocked to see you go. I can't believe how they let others slide by, week after week, and you get eliminated over something stupid. You are a beautiful woman and will go far. Try not to take it personally and know that you already have what it takes to be a successful model - you don't need a reality show to determine you worth. Best of luck in your career and life - the show won't be the same without you.

Don't give up! Stay in NY and try to make it work. You definitely have model potential! Nicole is a B. I hope they kick her off the show next season, because she is an awful mentor. I think you are going to be a really great model!.

Jordan,

You are a very pretty girl and could go far with an attitude adjustment.I suggest you watch some of the episodes you have been in. You are great until you open your mouth to shoot someone else down or bad mouth someone. You attitude sucks and will win you nothing in the end!

Viewer

A lot of the viewers are shocked that you were eliminated after being in the bottom 2 for the first time. HELLO! It's getting down to the last few models, so there is no room for error. I'm surprised that no one mentioned that you did the same poses as AMANDA (on a prev. episode) on this week's catwalk with the tipping of the hat. That and your copout with hiding behind a bag during last week's shoot shows that you're not very creative. That may work for Seventeen magazine or something like that, but beyond that, don't expect a job with a real designer. It's obvious that you're not SUPERmodel material. You along the lines with Crawford, Turlington, Campbell, Moss, etc.?! Give me a break! Even if you had the looks, which you don't, there's no justifying your pseudo-diva behavior.

To Matt, Rich and G.B. Moon, couldn't have said it better myself. I want to know how Jordan, who got only praises up until last week, gets voted off because she can't use Heely's? Give me a break. I would like to know how the judges justify saying "Salome is to heavy to be a supermodel, and her expressions were the same in every photo" and then vote Jordan off? I agree with G.B. Moon, it's because they already knew she was a supermodel. As for all the other viewers saying that what goes around comes around......get real people, the show is so edited and set up for drama that it's laughable. If they watched the show, how do they explain Jordan being nice to everyone in the house? Jordan is a doll, she will do just fine on her own. Tyson and Nicole both trashed Jordan in their blogs, but did you see Tyson's face when he read it was Jordan? He cringed! He then goes on to tell her that she will do great in the modeling world. Talk about contridictions!! The show will be boring without Jordan. Don't know if I will finish watching it.

You are an excellent model who will certainly go very far in the industry. You have the perfect look, especially in front of the camera. It was a bit unfair that you were eliminated; you have continually been in the top and have proven your worth as a supermodel. I agree that Branden is definitely not supermodel material and Salome has weakness; but, everyone has weaknesses--that's why you all were there-to improve your modeling skills. I think the key to succeeding is making sure that you don't worry about others and focus on what you do and your successes. I noticed that you became more and more concerned with the other models' weaknesses and began to talk about them behind their backs. Unfortunately negative thoughts can overtake your confidence and cause you to experience setbacks. I think as long as you can focus on your strenghts and talents you will certainly succeed as a model. Don't worry about anyone else b/c negative thoughts can definitely manifest in your shots...you are already a supermodel and will rock the industry as long as you keep your confidence!

You're pretty cool and I'm glad you lasted longer than that bigot Amanda. Give Salome a break though, you act like "Mean Girls" with her, you're gonna give her an eating disorder...

I'm sorry to see you go. I enjoyed your honesty and can't imagine what it must be like to be around the same people 24/7 during a competition (especially someone as ANNOYING as Amanda.) You are a great competitor and a phenomenal model. You are definitely going to be a great success and I wish you well.

I disagree with everyone who thought you were a brat, i thought you were the most real in the competition. Not to mention, one of the strongest models. There are many who have slid past elimination after elimination but you proved yourself to be a strong competitor the whole time. Even Tyson's face looked disappointed when he saw your name on the slip. Whatever, haters.

Jordan,

I did not like your attitude throughout the time you were on the show; however, you should not leave New York without signing with a modeling agency. Not only will you work in New York but any where in the world just keep an open mind when the professionals are making recommendations concerning your look. The judges did you a favor because their decision will challenge you to build good character. You were one of the few on the show who actually have potential to become a supermodel.

g.b moon

judges let you go because you alredy are a supermodel you dont need to be MADE into one,i hope you stay in NYC beacuse im sure you'll start booking jobs pretty quickly,and find a good agency,you have a great look and attitude, models arent paid to be nice so its completly absurd ppl talking trash about your attitude they obviously dont know how it is in this industry and how nasty it can get. look at it this way..beautiful can get away with just about anything

chin up! cheers!

Jordan, I'm so sad to see that you were eliminated. I looked forward to each episode because I was always interested to see what new look you would bring to the photo shoots or the catwalk. While some of the other models have been in the bottom a lot before, you were almost always in the top, and over-all you look the most like a model. I don't think that you should have been kicked off just because you couldn't use the heelys. But you will do really well in the future! Good Luck!

I could not agree more Martha. Jordan has never once been in the bottom, and she gets booted for what...? Because she's "fading?" Laughable...They couldn't come up with a better excuse? My wife and I were NOT falling for that. It's unbelievable how many chances some of these models are getting, yet Jordan gets none. And to everyone calling Jordan catty, or saying she has a bad attitude, I have one thing to say: Get off your high horses! You all act as if Jordan has committed the mother of all sins by expressing her dislike for someone. You've all done what she's done at some point in your life! Lets be serious here!

I know we didn't see everything that went on in that place, but I never saw Jordan being catty to the other models, and was always professional to the right people. The only time she ever made any remotely "mean" comments was in her confessionals. (Keyword: CONFESSIONAL...)I'm sure all of the other models had some nasty tings to say that were never aired.

Her attitude didn't send her home, none of the judges ever mentioned her attitude. You all just want to believe that she was sent home because of her attitude because it makes your feelings towards her feel somewhat justified. Give it a rest people!

Sorry to see you go. You and Salome were the only reasons I watced the show and you seem better rounded. You're so beautiful and adorable. You're like a care bear with claws. I get that the competitions should carry some weight, but the judges should also have some foresight and factor in potential. Others don't have your potential and got lucky. I thought you should have taken the whole competition or at least made the top three. Good luck in your career.

As they say, "What goes around comes around." Your attitude and catty behavior are really what got you kicked off. Unlike Martha Syers, my husband and I cheered when you were eliminated. You do not have what it takes to be a supermodel.

Jordan, I do not post on these sites, but I told my husband and daughters that I felt compelled to write this time because I sit here in utter shock and disappointment that those judges actually eliminated you. Not only were you the best model, you were by far the most entertaining. It’s sad to see those boys, from Gabe, to Colin, to Branden, even Salomie, get chance after chance, after chance. You are the model that won immunity, won 2 photo shoots, booked a go-see, took amazing picture after amazing picture, ruled the catwalk and was NEVER in the bottom 3 – yet you are who they choose to eliminate. My family and I do not appreciate it at all. Those judges were grasping for straws and I don’t even have words to describe my distain for Nicole or Peru. You captivated us week after week. We found you incredibly professional, funny and talented. I have no worries that you will be successful, but I feel like I’ve been conned and have no desire to watch this show any further. Thank you for letting me speak my peace.

Viewer

Why shouldn't Nicole comment on personal though? Most of the others girls ( ones that you hated and also commented on personal stuff) got the same kind of treatment, they had annoying attitudes and you started off as my fav but then your attitude was turning into a 10 year old and all we saw was childish behavior or b*tch. Anyway I hope a guy takes it.. they have been the most professional all the way around
