Nicole breaks down the models' nude photo shoot performances.

on May 13, 20090

The models had their naked shoot so let's go through everyone. First we have Branden, who needed a lot of direction from Tyson.

Branden wasn't that strong this week. He was really childish. His child side came through. He was really insecure. He's a teenage boy. It was interesting to see that cockiness get shut down when he took all of his clothes off, becuase he was vulnerable. He's losing confidence, which is one of the most important things you need to have as a model.

Did you know how homesick he was?

No, not at all. I was really shocked to see him crying. I think it was really beautiful that he could be so open with how he feels. I get it. I understand that he's on a reality TV show so it's hard to tell us what's going on sometimes. I don't know if he had told Tyson, but that vulnerability really came out.

Next we have Jonathan. He did well.

Jonathan is good. He works well. He's doing great. Everyone likes him and he's got confidence. I'm not his biggest fan though, because there's nothing that makes him memorable to me. He's a hot guy, but there's nothing memorable in my opinion.

He had some financial troubles at home. Did you know that was happening?

I had no idea. That's another thing. Your personal life gets exposed on TV and he did well with that. He didn't let it affect his work at all, but Branden did. He's good at leaving his personal stuff at home. He's very professional and he handles himself well, I'm just not so into his look. He's hot and everyone loves him, but it's not that unique to me.

What about Salome?

I was so proud of Salome. She just took her clothes off! The other models were very jealous. You know what? She won. That's all that matters. She had the worst situation to go into the shoot with. Everyone else was already in a better place, and yet she came out the best. I've seen her posing in front of the mirror. She was conscious that she wasn't in a great place, but she really tried her best. It wasn't manipulated by anyone or anything. She has a beautiful face. She worked it and she deserved it. When she came through the door she looked like a superstar. She's a little bit of a diva, but she looked like a star.

What about Mountaha?

Mountaha is really creative and she's the type of girl that loves to move. You kinda got to let her do her thing. She doesn't take direction so well. It kind of cuts down her confidence when someone tells her what to do. That's a downside to modeling, you have to take direction well. She's got her own thing going on and that will work for her in some cases, but in others it's going to go against her.

I agree Jonathan isn't memorable.. he has the typical male model look, and to be a supermodel you have to be distinguished from everyone else...

ex. Janice D. broke the blue eyed blonde mold Gemma W. broke the typical beauty mold Giselle B.broke the waif model mold

Well Salome is gone. I guess Motowha will be in line to get it. I don't dislike like her that much but I am very sad to see Salome gone. She had class which the other's don't have. I thought Salome was great except for the catwalk and I can't understand why you guy could not have taught her to walk. You just don't see girls of that callibra every day.

I can't believe Jordan went home! Although she wasn't very nice she definitely has a great look and walk. Brandon sooooo needs to be gone already, I don't get what is so great about him. Nor Sandhurst...neither of these would make me look twice. Now Jonathan, you bet. I like him w/dark hair but do prefer the lighter blonde coloring. I really Salome and Mountaha but I am pulling for Jonathan all the way!

Okay, It makes me so sick when people say just because a girl has a few curves that she is fat. I think Salome totally rocks. She is not fat by any means of the word. Just because she's not a waif who looks like she'd fall over in a strong wind does not mean she's fat. Personally what this world needs is a Supermodel who isn't a waif, is beautiful, and can strut her stuff. Not another one with a popscicle stick body to carry the stigma that thinner is better. Why do you think there are so many self conscious, overly weight obsessed girls in the world? That's what society presents itself to be beautiful. I totally disagree and will be disgusted if she gets voted off because she's not a stick. Vote for Salome. She would be a positive role model for beautiful girls around the world.

You are one of the worst hosts I have ever seen on a reality show-you have no personality, you look miserable, and you pick on the girls. You should stick up for the women, instead of always pointing out their weaknesses! I have no idea how you booked this job, beautiful you are, nice you are not.

Nicole,

Shame on you! You act like a mean girl from Tina Fey’s movie “Mean Girls.” I thought that you would be able to shed true light on the female modeling industry. Yet, you don’t defend Jordan but you defend Collin. Salome will never make it in the world of supermodels and you and the judges know this to be true. Why? Because of her weight and catwalk are atrocious. Her field is print ads. You and the judges are being cruel by keeping her on the show.

Good day from the northern part of usa. I have watched ur show for both seasons and have agreed with almost all ur elinations yet one i was kind of confused about is Keryn how could she have done fairly well the first few weeks then had one bad show and she gets the ax. Must have been something i missed. Also kinda confused about Jordan, even though she was a biatch, I really thought she could be the one female u all could make a super model she had the best walk out of all of them yet i am really glad she is gone. Salome u have to be kidding me maybe for a face photo shoot but please her body does not even come close to a JC penny model. U all r the pros and u all r doing a great job Lastly will thanks u for wat Jordan said. Thanks for throwing her under the bus lol John
