Nicole breaks down the final competition.

on Jun 4, 20090

Bravotv.com: First, the three guys got that great shoot, the Polaroid shoot. What does that mean for them?
I think the way they all reacted was so amazing to me because sometimes people don’t realize how lucky they are to work with someone so special, and the camera is so special, but they all really realized it and they were all very grateful and appreciative towards Timothy, and I thought that was pretty sweet. And they understood what was going on, which shows that all of them are supermodels. I’m so proud of all of them! It was such a happy day for me and Tyson to be sitting there watching them work in front of that camera with Timothy and it was a great energy that day. It was really a special moment for all of us.

Bravotv.com: Do you think they had a "less is more" situation? They didn’t really have to do much; it was more about keeping it subtle. Do you think that is harder to do?
It is, definitely. I watched when they were leaving the house. They were all like, “I’m going to give it my all today,” which might have meant, for them, giving all of their energy and really working it out, but they only took one picture so they had to put all of their energy into that one picture and I think they all hit it spot-on. They were all phenomenal. All of the pictures showed their different characters. Their personalities really got brought out this time because it was raw — it was just them. And I just thought that they all did a fantastic job. I thought that Branden won because of that photo shoot. It was as if he’d been studying all season and that was his graduation to become a supermodel after that. It was so great to see him have that transformation on the show. And to see him win was really great. I think he deserved it. I knew it the whole way through.

Bravotv.com: Next, they had the Cosmo shoot. How do you think they all did?
I thought Jonathan was going to do the best at that because he is such a Cosmo boy. But they liked Brandon the most. Didn’t they? It’s so funny because I see Branden on the runways in Milan and everything, but the fact that he had that versatility and he really charmed them was awesome. I felt they all did a good job. The Cosmo man is very specific though and the fact that they did a good job was great. I think that Sandhurst was the only one that didn’t have a good chance in the beginning because he’s got a good body — muscular and stuff — so he’s not really a Cosmo man, but he still did wel. They were really great. I’m glad they got that opportunity.

Bravotv.com: And finally they have the catwalk. First they had to do the odder one with the large graphic suits and stuff, and then they got to do a Ben Sherman one.
I was really impressed. I thought they all looked like stars on the runway. This time I thought they all looked so great on the runway. Especially Branden and Jonathan were so great on the runway this time. They just blew my mind. They looked like they were on a runway in Milan and Paris. They looked natural. They looked like supermodels. It was great. And Branden just stepped it up. He was just like "I need to win this, I want this." You could see how much he wanted it. He’s just ready. He’s young. He’s in the perfect position. He has no baggage. He’s excited. He’s vibrant. He’s naive and innocent and he’s charming. He has everything that it takes to be a supermodel. And he’s the one that deserves the opportunity more than anyone else. The other two are going to be supermodels too, I think. They have a lot of potential and I hope that they carry on and just rock it, because all of them are winners, really, at the end of the day.

Would everyone please stop hating on Branden?? I loved everyone this year. Branden, Jonathan, and Sandhurst were all amazing!!! I love them all. Im really happy that Branden won!! I know he's going to have an awesome career. I hope he has a lot of fun. And If I were Nicole I would be PROUD to be rollerblading and the park and snacking on PB&J sandwiches with milk!! Haha. Branden is awesome and he deserved to win. Case closed. Cant wait for next season!! Love this show!!! :) :) :)

You can honestly say that you could see Branden in Milan runway lol! That is a far stretch could this be because of DUH hormones and CLEARLY you had the hots for him. I absolutely love fashion and watching runways, so I have been disappointed lately with fashion magazines. The covers with celebs is SICKENING. I know the fashion magazines are thinking with marketability ($) but do they have to take up 5 page spread when they don't photograph nearly as well as a Supermodel. I personally would rather see true models in a fashion magazines. I am trashing my Glamour mag which has Sandra Bullock on cover PUKE!

CC, I agree Branden really stepped it up and deserved it more than the others. I personally found Jonathan very old looking for a model. He had the best body, but modeling is so so much more than that. And Sandhurst was cute, but not particularly sexy. Branden deserved the win and you are so lucky that you get to go out with him. I suspect you'll have a blast he seems like a sweet and fun guy.

I have the formula that they used to make their decision!

Jonathon was out because he had a wife and child..that might hold him up from jetting off to do a runway in Italy.

Sandhurst was a little too tall, a little too muscular to be a walking hanger.

Brandon will do whatever he is told to do (if he is capable of doing so) and is 18. they can say whatever they want...when it all boils down to it....they want skinny youth with vacant faces.

Season 3 will not be not be programed into my TIVO to record; because I won't be watching it. buh-bye

why are only negative comments post on this blog? branden has such a great future ahead,yeah he's young but some of the greatest models nowdays were discovered when they were 14 or 16 years old,hes got a great unique look,the charisma and charm,and zero bagague!!

JELLY SANDWICHES AND MILK WITH BRENDAN WOULD BE SO LOVELY!

I think the judges should have seen how the fans voted. Branden came in last, so that should tell them something. There is no way in the world that he is a better model than Jonathan or Sandhurst. He has that same smirk on his face in every picture and I for one got tired of seeing it and to think that he actually came very close to going home (to bad). Any model agency will be darn lucky to get Jonathan or Sandhurst. The sad thing is Jonathan is a family man and he really needed the money for his family, a lot of us can identify with that. I would never have watched if I had known the way it was going to turn out.

Wow Lynda S calm down. Lets not get personal here and start attacking Branden for you having a different opinion of who the winner should be. Everyone has a different opinion. One person may think Branden's face is memorable while others do not. The judges obviously thought Branden had a bright future. Ive seen lots of guys on the runway with Branden's body type. Tall and lanky with a youthful face. Good luck to them all. Congrats Branden!

Are you serious when you believe BabyBoy Branden is sexier than Jonathan and Sandhurst and was the best to win the title? I find it hard to believe you really have that opinion. You seem worldly and sophisticated. How could that skinny hillbilly be considered a top model when he didn't even know what men's suit was before the Bloomingdale's challenge? He knows nothing about fashion. His runway was terrible. His face is forgettable. His poses are static. He really has only one pose -- a long nose drooping over a snarled top lip. Big Deal. Elvis Presley, he's not!

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH....like you opinion really mattered throughout the whole show. Tyson could have done this whole show by himself. You had no help or any positive mentoring for the girls. Hope to see you next season.... NOT Won't be watching next season.

Well, it's all over now. There is only one thing left - Get ready for your date with Mr. Innocent! You agreed on air in front of millions of witnesses, er - viewers that you would go out with the lunk if he won. HaHA! You have to go out with Branden now. Enjoy your evening of rollerblading in a park and picnicking on peanut butter & jelly sandwiches with milk (becasue he's underage to drink liquor). It should be fun!
