Tyson explains the differences between modeling and acting.

Perry can act, he can hold a conversation, he can host a show. To me, out of all of what we have, right now I think he might be the closest one to being it. In the beginning I thought all the guys would get knocked off and we'd just have Perry competing against four girls, but it's been the other way around. The girls have been getting knocked off and the guys have been left. There are 4 girls and 5 guys left. In the end, I think it might be Shannon and Perry. You gotta think about it like, we're in a business dominated by nothing but women, but now the tables are turning. Casey wasn't so bad, but his walk ain't never changing. Nikki was saying his walk got better this week and I'm like, "What have you been looking at?" To me, his walk has not changed and he's good for pictures, and he's alright in everything else, but, to me, he just might not be it either.

When you're a male model working with women, it is your job to make them look better, but you've gotta eat too. When I used to go to my photo shoots and was paired with women I would try to work even harder than them to try to steal the show from them. Instead of just playing a role I wanted to ride hard.
