Now for elimination! It's really weird to hear people be told, "I'm sorry we cannot make you a supermodel." My adrenaline is pumping until I get told I made it and get an invitation ... to Ferry Landing. House maybe? To this I take a cab, get that. I get out to see Tyson standing by the water with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background. There is a crane holding a big red box in the air. I think we have a photo shoot in the air! But is is sooo cold! There is oodles of people around to watch us! Models keep arriving till there is a big string of us.
Tyson tells us he is not going to be a judge; he is to be the boys' mentor and that they are brining a supermodel in to be the girls' mentor. I start looking at trying to figure out who ... Naomi Campbell runs through my mind and it scares me! Suddenly the crane starts letting the big red box down. The sides fall open and there is the most perfectly formed lady posed in it. She is amazing. I am excited to talk to her and learn from her, Nicole.
We are told we are going to be shot in this plexi-glass blox hung for NYC to see. Oh wait there is a catch. We are shooting with a partner. I have never done this before! We will randomly be selected to pick. I'm second to choose so I pick Gabriel. I think we will look and work well together. Oh wait there is another catch: It is in sexy underwear and we are to have a moment! If our first shoot is this what is our second shoot gonna be like?
I'm excited to be working with a photog that has shot all kinds of famous people. The only name I recognize is Coldplay! Perou is very interesting looking. Black coveralls, black hat, and square black glasses, heavy rocker rings on each finger. Skulls and more skulls. I want one for my big toe.
Somehow the order of shooting got messed up — instead of last, we were middle.
