How was Mountaha? She thought she did really well.

She always thinks she does really well, and that just messes her up all the time. She starts to judge herself and tell herself that she did well when she didn't necessarily. Just listen and do. Don't assume you did something you didn't because that's what gets her. She gets cocky and the judges bring her down and reality hits.

How do you think Salome and Mountaha did on the go-see?

I don't think they worked too well because they don't really have swimsuit bodies. I preach that. I only have so much to work with and if they don't want to go to the gym I can't really force them to.

Salome won the photo shoot, but where did she go wrong?

I don't know, man. In the photo shoot she's fine. She's got the great face, but that's what she has. She just doesn't have the body.

What advice do you have for the final four? What do they need to do to win it?

They need to step it up. They're playing it safe. Someone's gotta break out and do something different. Playing safe is not doing them or us any good.
