Sandhurst

Sandhurst describes this week's challenge and his surprise over the elimination.

on May 12, 20090

With Amanda eliminated last week the house was once again even. Jordan, Mountaha, and Salome definitely rejoiced Amanda’s departure from the house. Branden, Jonathan, and myself had always been cool so no fighting was on the horizon for us going into the week.

This week’s photo challenge was in fact a real job for Dallas Austin’s line of clothing, Rowdy.  We were asked to model in groups, pairs, and singles with the best six shots to be chosen by Dallas himself.

Throughout the shoot I had four looks due to some sizing issues. The pants never changed but the tops did. The shoot was intense but at the end of the day one of my single shots had been chosen. It felt great to know that my face was going to be part of a national campaign.

The catwalk for this week featured the Heelys, regular shoes with a wheel in the heel. We were asked to maneuver down the catwalk on the Heelyes, mixing gliding and a regular fun catwalk.  This was proving to be more difficult than I thought however by pure luck I was able to pull off a great walk. Unfortunately, Jordan was not as fortunate. Her inability to use the Heelyes, in addition to her fading presence pushed her to the bottom of the group. The thing about this elimination was that I thought that Jordan had done enough to get a second chance.

WOw, Sandhurst, you are AMAZING! i screamed when you didn't win. I yelled at my sister. I was MAD as hell. you are sooooo handsome and unique and SO not an 'accountant face'.

although branden was my second choice to win, you were my number one choice. book jobs, yada yada. be a supermodel!

I am done with this show. Branden's win is another example of this country rewarding inconsistencies. I"m sure he's a nice guy but certainly not deserving. Not cool, not cool at all.

Sandhurst was my favorite and it was clear the competition was between him and Jonathan.

Sandhurst, i am an international student(I am from China) studing for my Master's degree here in American. I have seen a few episodes of the Supermodel. When i first saw you, i can feel your grace in your body and tender personality from your smile and voice. I hope you can be the winner even though others are good also.But you are just unique, the only one, no other can copy! I know you may be now a little down in the competition, but keep the confidence, do not let that go! It is the confidence let you body displaying the brillance. Also,I believe the essence of ballet not only melt in your body, also in your soul. But i agree with the judges you should add something new, something different, give people some fresh feeling except the grace to show your range. I know it is close to the end, but wish you have a good mind-set, do not think the winner thing to much, it will pressure you, just try to express the best of you no matter the result. Because the judge is not only the decider,people like me and all your supporters know you are the best! you will suceed in your life! Sorry for some errors may happened in my comments, actually I speak Chinese, i am from China, but i think you can understand my meaning. I hope you can see my comments!!!Because i want to represent all your supporters to give you strength at this last stage. I am looking at you! Having a good mind-set! And i love your skin color! It is just brillant! Emma Zhu

Sandhurst, as someone who works with models that are starting out I know what you are going through! Week to week I’m hearing and seeing the judges saying that you are giving the same look in your photographs. You have a BEAUTIFUL face!!! I would suggest sitting in front of a mirror and really just study your face and see how to express different emotions. See what you can show with the face as well as your body! Your body is amazing and having limitations due to being a dancer you need to learn to work around it and not make it work against you but for you. I know you can win this!

Sandhurst, you are absolutely adorable! I see you definitely becoming the supermodel. I really admire the fact that as a man, you were a ballet dancer, that makes you even sexier. Ok, and the fact that your are heterosexual, which is unusual in your field. I would know from experience I too, was a ballet dancer for 13 years. Good Luck Sandhurst blow them out of the water!

Aww Sandhurst you are just too cute for words (and someone in editing needs to have their fanny's slapped for spelling your name wrong in the description of your prevous blog!)

You are definitely a household favorite here (Jonathan too) and it's going to be interesting to see which one of you guys takes it all. In my opinion the girls are just not providing much competition!

I wonder if you have any idea how many people are running around quoting you now haha...if I could just manage to get the accent right ;)

best of luck, we love you down south!

Sanhurst, I really believe that you will be the next supermodel. There are a million Jonathons but Sanhurst has a look that I have not seen much of.

I think Sandhurst is one of tv realities most amazing people...He is so kind, never a bad word toward anyone, focusing on his goals, and just being a true gentleman in times of huge stress...I think he is amazing and I hope he wins, if not the challenges but the fan favorite. Sandhurst you are awesome and a beautiful human being, inside and out!

Toss up between Jonathon and Sandhurst. I agreen Jonathon a rolemodel in life yet very sexy! Good runway and photo shots. "money, money"...on the other side there is Sandhurt strong competive side too. I think Sanhurt has a great attitude and has great photos last 2-3 weeks not so bad on the runway either. Both are really now going for the "in it to win it!" tough chose between the two.

Sandhurst, you have alot to learn. Coping Jonathan on this shoot was a good move but not an original one to be sure. Can not understand how your thighs would fit in model size jeans!?! You are a great dancer but not super model material. Better stick to Ballet!

Jonathon is more than just a model- he's a role model! There are not enough men his age with his sense of responsibility: For heaven's sake, someone tell him to go back to his sexy blond surfer dude look- he'd get more work for certain ( the stylist should have talked him out of going darker). Sandhurst, you're a neat guy.
