What about Mountaha?

She did good. She had a great walk. Her walk was incredible. The only one who can mess it up for her is her right now. Mountaha is like a little puppy who looks up to Nicole. I've worked with all the big girls - Cindy, Kate, Iman, Tyra. I have working with all those women under my belt and Nicole doesn't have that track record. I felt like I just wanted to jump in and help Mountaha.

What was the key to doing well on that catwalk? It didn't seem very easy. Branden seemed to have trouble.

It's not like there's no air or ventilation. He got knocked down for his cockiness and he hasn't really bounced back.

Salome won the assignment, but everyone said they cut her off above the waist.

You got to understand that the item she picked was earrings. It's not necessary to shoot a full body when all you have is just earrings. So, a lot of those kids don't really realize what the assignment was. It's not always about the full body. She was just lucky to have picked the earrings.

What about Sandhurst?

He did well. I was very instructive. The pose I gave Sandhurst was something I did. I just passed it on to the kid. It worked for him, especially with the glove. I just went back in my rolodex and pulled it out.

What about Jordan?

It didn't have enough creativity. It wasn't creative enough. She lost out on that one. Her problem is she is constantly stressing out about Amanda. It gets annoying. Now there's nobody left to stress about.

Do you think Amanda deserved to go home?

Honestly, I thought Branden bombed this time, but she deserved it too. The judges were tired of her.
