I know some of the bloggers are like, "You should quit! You're the worst panelist ever!" And you know, I listen to their opinion and I appreciate their opinion, but if you've never been in this business, and you've never achieved the things I've achieved, you really can't say what I should be doing. You walk around in my shoes and you'll understand what this business is about. This is a tough business, and to get up there and put yourself out there physically and mentally and let people judge the way you look, the way you walk, the way you talk, and the way you look in underwear, and to call out all your flaws is hard. Those who can do it, God bless them.
I've always had women around me, like Nikki and Naomi Campbell. I remember my first intro to Europe and the catwalk was Linda Evangelista. She and I were at a show in Milan, and she was great. As soon as she cut her hair, Holly reminded me of her. Linda's always been one of my favorites, and so has Naomi, but I've always had the biggest crush on Linda. I don't know where she is right now, but I'd marry her!
Fashion has dropped off since they started putting all these celebrities on the covers of magazines. No offense to the celebrities, but they can't do it like a model can. You can dress them up, airbrush them to death, but they're not going to be Linda, they're not going to be Naomi, they're not going to be Cindy, or all those girls who ran it and made fashion fun. It was such an amazing run for fashion at that time, and with this show maybe we can find the next Linda or Cindy. Whether they're Dairy Queen, or Burger King, or working on their dad's farm, I mean, look at Holly! This girl was making squirrel gravy. She was just so cute, and I can't think of anyone else who deserves this whole thing, with all that she's been through.
I think it was very important that she could meet Jessica Stam and Naomi Campbell, just so she can see what it's about. These are girls you have to compete with, work with, emulate and become.
Hi, your show is amazing and so inspiring. I seem to hit a road block as to finding out how to actually participate in the show! im interested in trying out. My question: can you help guide me in the right direction?
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?
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 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
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.
