Jonathan discusses his final elimination.

13th Photo Shoot - Timothy Greenfield Sanders

Wow – what an opportunity! Having polaroids (one one of the earliest cameras) taken by Mr. Greenfield Sanders.

This shoot was so revealing. No posing, no character, just your naked face being captured.

It was a fun, interesting, and almost uncomfortable shot as we were shot warts and all, no retouching, just how we look everyday.

I loved the pictures especially the group one … this really was a once-in-a-lifetime shoot.

Timothy was such a nice guy and was kind enough to give us each a souvenir. I got his book of famous portraits. Thanks for the opportunity, Bravo!

Next day we had a shoot (test) with Cosmo mag, which didn’t go well for me. I was in my head and couldn’t get out. Sounds so unprofessional. I had just seen my wife and son the night before, first time in two months. No excuse to be off my game and I feel quite embarrassed about my performance today.

13th Runway – Crazy and Refined

Two walks – one in a crazy fun suit, one in a sleek Ben Sherman number.

So final final final. This one was a big one.

I walked well, with a slight step as the first suit was a bit out there, so I had to wear it like I owned it.

Second suit I loved. It felt tailored! I had a confident walk and was feeling good … until …

Oh well…it’s all over Tyson pretty much threw my book at me and got rid of me.

Got this far so don’t feel too bad, but am I disappointed? Absolutely. Let's see if getting this far will help my career. Hope to see you all around.

Sorry you didn't win this season Jonathon because you should have. You were professional and consistently modelesque from day 1. You could do it all--still photography, cat walks, etc. You were the best on the cat walk every time and just had the whole package. I'm sure that this show must have gotten you noticed so I'm waiting to see you pop up in print ads or on TV again some day.

You guys are ALL CRAZY Branden was the best. Branden had THE MOST improvement out of everyone, whereas Jonathan did not improve at all.

Man, I cannot believe you didn't win. I thought it was a no brainer. Branden was way too immature and unprofessional, and Sandhurst was just too pretty - too much feminine energy - to be able to be a supermodel. You had the looks, professionalism, attitude, and class. Sorry for you mate, but something tells me they're already knocking on your door with offers and that you'll be a huge success without this win. Looking forward to seeing you rise.

I think I saw you in Balboa Beach,my husband said that I'am crazy,I was the starbucks and you are seated at a bench with your son and wife you play with your child and look at him playing with a dog with a sweet eye with so much love and that intrig me I told my husband I know is he I'm sure . well hopefully I'm not crazy .

I couldn't agree more that you were the standout from day one. Who else was in the bottom every week and won the whole damn thing??? I never thought much of Brandon and still dont. I truly feel it should've been down between you and Sandhurst. I wish you and your family all the best.

You are so awesome and extremely handsome. I really thought that you should win this. I hate contests, because you just never know what a judge will decide, usually it is not what the majority of the people would decide. I hope that you make it really far and I hope that you stay true to your wife and son. It won't be easy,,,but you seem like a good guy!

Jonathan,

I am so pleased to see you got picked up by Nous. I cannot help but agree that you were definitely the Supermodel they should have picked. You are amazingly versatile and seem to be very easy to work with and around. You are consistent and humble (which is odd in such a beautiful man) as well as talented. I also think you would make a great actor - the camera does love you! I look to your family to keep you grounded and sane in the world of catwalking and acting. They are treasures worth every fight you have fought and I am so proud of you that I can only hope my little boys grow up with even a smidgen of your character. I have not seen the finale because I Tivo'd it and skipped to the end. I just cannot watch the travesty of justice that must have occurred to get Branden the money spot. But, you seem to have landed on your feet (I never doubted you'd get picked up! You are too good to fail, sweetie.) and I wish you and your family all the best!

Jonathan, I do hope you read some of these supportive comments from viewers. I watched most of this season and you were my favorite early on because you were thoughtful & intelligent in your choices, your walk was always very strong, and you photograph really well in many contexts, you've kept yourself in great shape (though please try & quit smoking :), AND because you were always humorous and classy in your comments with no juvenile bickering like some of the girls. I hope you give modeling a real go, because the judges were quite impressed with you consistently, and said MANY times that you could land a job right now (and you did!). I wish Brandon well, but truly he lacks the poise and confidence to qualify him as a "supermodel" carrying a show today, and you have it in spades! I'm glad you won some fan favorite $, you really were a clear choice for winner for me and many viewers (you, Sandhurst, then Brandon). I dislike Bravo's penchant for pulling a crazy switcheroo at the last minute on the obvious top contestant, they have done it before and left viewers feeling robbed and ticked off. Ok, Brandon aced the final, but you were the "golden boy" throughout the competition. I know a ton of modeling agencies including NY Model Management would be thrilled to have you and I hope you pursue it! I wish all the best to you and your family!

Hey dear Jonathan,

I felt terrible because for me it was not other winner but you I tought you did a fantastic job not only in the catwalk and pictuares but the way and the streght that you have a heart for your family it was great...As a viewer i do not think that they even bother counting with our opinions...to see a kid in a good pictuare I can take some of my own kids...to see a man an a great professional I would rather have you no doubt I will buy a magazine with you onit. I hope you have a great future in modeling and keep the love for what really counts family Sincerely Sonia

I loved you from episode 1, I picked you out just from looks and then you also walked awesomely, I was so disappionted that you didn't win but you did have some stiff competition with Sandhurst and Brandon!! Just hope to see your career take off!!!

There were many times throughout the season that I really thought the judges were either on drugs or should be...when Salome was eliminated before Brandon I stopped watching, but I still thought it was painfully obvious that you would win...I really hope for the next season they get some judges who know what they are doing - I also thought they offered very little guidance or helpful criticism and often contradicted themselves! Anyway, I am sure you have a long and successful career ahead of you! Good Luck!

JONATHAN WAS ROBBED!!!

If the same judges are on the show next season - I will not be watching! Jonathan - YOU ARE ALREADY A SUPERMODEL!! Maybe that is the reason you or Sandhurst did not win - they can't make you into what you already are. Best wishes, I know you will make it as a model. I see money when I see you.

I followed last years show and loved it all the way thru. The new season, I just knew you would win almost from day won..I was totally unhappy to see Branden win and not you. I doubt I will ever watch the show again...p.s. get new judges !!!!!

Jonathan, you truly were robbed in the finale. Sandhurst was a strong second in my opion, but never Branden. The judges displayed their "artistic volatility" in choosing him as the winner. I was so disgusted with the judges wayward direction- remember when Branden said he thought he was about to the be elimintated and Pirou said,"So did we?" Jonathan, you were never close to being eliminated. Branden's last picture somehow turned the tide, at the 11th hour, while you were always consistent and a favorite of the judges. Remember how one judge said if that picture was not in Branden's portfolio, he would not even consider him to win the competition? I was so disgusted with the judges that I will not watch that show again. Hopefully Bravo's advertisers are listening.

I have to agree with several other comments, You were most certainly robb'ed of the win. I feel that one of the reasons you didnt win was because of your age, Branden is the youngest by far. The point though was to find out who they could make in to a super model now, not who can become a super model in the distant future. You by far had what it takes, the photographers loved you, you have a very marketable look, both high fashion and commercial.

Even though you didnt win, im sure you got great contacts and you will go far.

WOW, those judges are NUTS!!! You should have won. wtf. brandon is an idiot. His runway totally blows!! He is not ready to be a supermodel. You killed it every single challenge and every single runway. I am so disappointed in the judges, if it would have been up to the people you would have been crowned a supermodel. I don't think I will be watching this show unless they get better judges.

LOVE YOU JONATHaN!!!!!!!

If this contest was about finding a "model to be" then salome, brandon or even colin could have won, BUT this show was about finding a Super Model, and clearly Jonathan was the most deserving and best prepared to become a SUPER MODEL right now.

He can walk the runway, takes great pictures, works well with the photographers. He does it all right now, that's why he should have received the price and the contract.

Good luck Jonathan and congratulations, to all of us you were the winner.

Hey Johnathan:

I thought for certain you would win. However, you had a "so-so" day on the absolutely WRONG day! However, I agree with the one judge who predicted that you'd make a lot of money in the business! Finally, I wanted to say that your baby boy has got to be one of the cutest babies I have seen in a while. Just adorable. You impressed me as a standup guy on the show and I think your personal qualities will allow you to do whatever you decide in the business. Cheers!

Viewer

Think of it this way... you don't have the contract or the cash. But, mostl likely you will have the career. I believe you will go further than Branden.. and Sandhurst, you have the consistency... more than both of them put together.

Good Luck and God's Speed.

I think you should have won
I think you should have won

I guess the name says it all you should have won. You deserved to win. You needed to win. Branden was crap on the catwalk and you were killer. What the judges said about you being forgettable was one of the stupidest things they've said all season. You were so unforgettable at one point you were almost too crazy. But you balanced it out in the end. I wish I could put a loser stamp on all the judges faces. That would be hysterical. Anyway, I really hope you can still have a really successful career as a model (most people think you're the real supermodel) and that your family will have a better time with the rent. I've worked in the fashion industry and believe me, after this show, fashion people will be just jumping on you. Best of luck!!!!!!
