Tyson shares his thoughts on the finale.

on Apr 3, 20080

For Holly, having New York Model Management behind her, and having David there teaching her how to walk and get it right, she'll be fine. I think we've put an asset into fashion, and I hope to God she doesn't run off and marry that cute boyfriend of hers and never want to be in this business again. I hope the two of them come to New York and tackle this industry and take it for what it's really worth.

This process made me feel like I've just learned so much about this business over the years. To be able to come back and do this show, I just thank Bravo for this opportunity and I thank everyone who watched it, and everyone in America for believing with us and rolling with us. This was the first time anything like this has been done, as far as shooting it so quickly and putting it on the air, I think that was just crazy, but it was worth it. If I had to do it again, I would, and I can't wait to get out there and start looking for the next contestants if there is another season. I think once you've done something and people have seen it, people will come out of the woodwork, and we'll see more amazing people coming.

Tyson I thought you were absolutely fabulous this evening. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seing you the rest of the season. Your comments are not only helpful for the contestants on the show but also to the viewers who are aspiring to be models. I wish you much success.

I have two sons who I believe you need to see. Neither on of them know or have ever thought about modeling, but I have know doubt you would be impressed. They are both 16 years old. One has very dark almost black hair,brown eyes, the other sandy blond, blue eyes. Both are on the thin size with high cheek bones and beautiful smiles. You need to see them and judge for yourself. Just let me know where to send the photos. Thanks mom

MR TYLER I WOULD LIKE TO SAY I WATCHED YOUR SHOW, IT WAS VERY VERY GOOD. ALL THOSE WHO ARE ON THE PANEL DID AN EXCELLENT JOB. I WAS IMPRESSED. SIR YOU ARE A VERY HANDSOME BROTHER. SIR I READ THE BEGINNING OF YOUR LETTER. I HAVE TO SAY YOU HAVE EARN YOUR POSITION IN LIFE AS TO WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW. NO ONE WHO HAVE NOT WALKED IN YOUR SHOE, HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL YOU THAT YOU SHOULD NOT BE ON THAT PANEL. PLEASE IGNOR THEM AND ENJOY WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

I have an almost 11 year old daughter and she is over 5 feet tall in the 5th grade. She always gets compliments from strangers and friends about how beautiful she is and that I should put her in modeling. How can I do that and can you lead me in that direction?
