Gabriel

Gabe expresses his disappointment with his elimination.

Apr 7, 20090

We had an underwater shoot, was a very cool experience and a great and rare opportunity to shoot underwater.

I hated getting kicked off the show from this shoot. I feel that I did what was asked of me very well. I also feel that the judges' and photographers' communication to be inconsistent. The scale of level of judging is not fair or consistent if I am being asked to look as if I'm trapped underwater about to die vs. Mountaha, being asked to act or look angelic underwater. They are completely opposite.

Although I thought your were the most attractive and best looking model (boys and girls), you clearly need lots of work in this industry. Good looking people are a dime-a-dozen in this world, but how you express your good looks and how you come across on camera are critical to be successful. Good luck Gabe, you are a hottie in those undies!!!

Gabe, It was so whack when you left! You were by far my number one pick!

So I was surfing the net the other day and I came across this interview that you were in. I love this one because it gives a little more insight to the REAL you!

People if you want to know what I'm talking about check out "Talk back with Mac" on fearless radio. com

Gabe you are so beautiful even on the radio!

This show needs to bring the viewers vote back. I think the judges had made up their mind about Gabriel from the first show. He had just as many "facial expressions" as Ben did in season one. Plus these shows create the storyline; who knows what personality Gabriel has, we never saw anything other than the storyline of being up for elimination every week. Ben had the bromance and the viewers vote. Not a knock on Ben, but a knock on taking the viewers out of this show and creating bogus storylines.

That sucked to see you go!!!!! I thought you had the best talent!!! You were the best looking guy on the show!!! Dont worry you will see another door open up for you!!! The judges may not have thought the non expression face that you make worked, but I thought it was sexy!!! Good luck in what ever you decide to do!!!

Gabe, you are very good looking! I feel like you could have won the show if you would have put a little bit more effort! I know I am just some viewer, but I did understand what happened! I hope you and Amanda work out! You two would be adorable together!

Good luck

I went to school with Gabe at Belmont, and though I did not know him personally, I did see him around campus alot(small campus). Even there, apart from the runway or a shoot, he did still have a perpetual look of sadness or blank disgust permanently imprinted on his face. Gabe, like the commentators below said, try practicing some different facial expressions in the mirror. The more versatile you can be, the further you will get in this field.

Models are booked on the basis of their appearance and their reputation for professionalism. They are not booked for their "potential". You were given ample encouragement and opportunities to show more than one expression but you did not.

As silly as it may sound, practice different facial expressions in front of a mirror & have a friend take photos of them. If necessary, exaggerate much more than you feel is required and you might break through to more looks and finally get some bookings.

Maybe it's not ment to be or maybe, after some practice, you'll nail those facial expressions the judges were talking about. Either way, you are naturally sexy and have that coveted look that all girls want to wake up next ro. Don't give up. Work on the charm and it'll be hard for any femal (and male!) go see to say no...

I think you could be a great model. The problem is that you simply don't know how to express more in your face. What you need is a really great acting class. I think that would bring out more in you than you realize you have. I wish you the very best.

I agree with Chilz! a pretty face does not a great model make. I believe that if you stop playing the victim and assess your true modeling skills, you will realize that at this point, you lack the talent and skills required to be a "SUPER MODEL". Remember that on the show you were evaluated on your performance, not on how you performed compared to the other participants. The judges are the experts so, don't blame others for your performance, evaluate and move on. I am sure you will make a good model someday but be humble, listen to criticism with an open mind, and learn from this experience. Good Luck!!!

Perou is just jealous of you that's why he voted you out. Even Tyson and Nicole didn't agree with how they kicked you out.

You say in your exit video, "I'm capable of so much more than what was shown here." Really? Then why didn't you show us? You had 6 episodes to show us what you were made of, and you failed. A true model doesn't rely on a photographer to make them look good, a great model SHINES and makes the photographer look good. I can see you have a very high opinion of yourself as a model, but you don't impress, quite frankly. By the way, when is the wedding...between you and Jonathan, that is? Wow, I think somebody's in love. Awwww.

It's unfair. The judges have given him hard time about his facial expression but that's how he looks, what do they want him to do? Like the photographer said, he has a naturally enigmatic face! If he tries something then they also trashed him for that.

Glad he's gone. Way too much of an ego and one expression - pouty. Sour grapes as well.

Models look different therefore each picture is going to look different so of course the photographer is going to ask you to have a different motivation. The photographer thinks in pictures and evidently thought it would make a great picture if Mountaha looked angelic and you looked like you were drowning. It's as simple as that. Don't feel sorry for yourself, Gabriel.

It was just a matter of time...could have happened at any previous elimination

I agree. You may need to be more expressive with your face, but you are way more handsome and did a better job than the other guy that thinks he's hot and isn't. I am dissapointed about this competition so far...
