Tyson weighs in on the models' performances.

on Mar 11, 2009

Let's dive right into the second episode. This week was the candy challenge. What do you think the key was to doing well in this challenge?

The key is to listen to the photographer and take direction. Some people don't follow direction well and they don't know how to express themselves.

Chris went home. How did you feel about that?

I'm sorry he went home, but he didn't work.

Let's go through everyone's performance. How did you feel about Branden this week?

He did well. We had problems with his posture, he had scoliosis so that might be a problem. He's working on standing up straight. He's a very tall young men. All these boys are very tall.

What's the ideal height for a male model?

Female is between 5'8 and 5'11. Males are 5'10 and 6'2. Anything taller than 6'2 becomes a problem because clothes don't fit as well.

How tall are you?

6'1. I also have a 34 inch inseam.

Jonathan did pretty well this week. Your comments on him?

Jonathan is a natural. His only problem is this thing with his arms. We sure can't get him to put his arms down.

Colin?

Colin is stiff as a board. He turns this thing on when he should just walk. On the catwalk his walk is stiff, but when he notices that and walks back, that's when he walks well. I studied his walk and he walks with his toes out. They aren't pointing forward. It causes you to drag your feet. He kind of walks like a duck and it's not good in this business.
