Going Goth

Niki gives advice to the models who've been sent home.

BRAVOTV.COM: Casey. What were your thoughts on his elimination?

What a great person. He has the full package just needs to be mentored in this profession. He will be just fine and I am certain we will see him again in some campaign out there somewhere, sometime.

BRAVOTV.COM: For the models who have gone home, what is the most strategically important thing for them to do now?

Take everything they've done, learned and feedback given and make the necessary changes. Find themselves a great modeling agent and don't give up on their dream. They were all great potentials to have gotten that far and some will have their specific targets as far as work. So good luck to them all.

BRAVOTV.COM: Of all the eliminated models so far, who has the most potential?

Wow -- that's tough just because I think a few of them have lots of potential in different areas of modeling.

BRAVOTV.COM: Walk us through ...



We were shocked that he made the adjustments necessary and really rose to this week's challenges. Maybe visiting his home town helped? Not sure but he was great.


The gothic theme really suited her which I was surprised about. In addition thought she was the best on catwalk this week. She really seemed to shine over the others this week.


I don't know if because he was preoccupied by personal things but he seemed to not do as well as I had expected. He's always a strong contender and I really expected more I think.


He had a tough time on his photo shoot assignment and whether because of the pairing or not fitting the gothic look or what but he is a true professional and listens very well.


I'm not certain what happened this week. She didn't seem to get the challenges much at all. She has always done very well and had never been in the bottom but this week was probably her most challenging out of all of them. Also I am still trying to figure out who Shannon is as a person.

Throwing the Book at Me

Jonathan discusses his final elimination.

13th Photo Shoot - Timothy Greenfield Sanders

Wow – what an opportunity! Having polaroids (one one of the earliest cameras) taken by Mr. Greenfield Sanders.

This shoot was so revealing. No posing, no character, just your naked face being captured.

It was a fun, interesting, and almost uncomfortable shot as we were shot warts and all, no retouching, just how we look everyday.

I loved the pictures especially the group one … this really was a once-in-a-lifetime shoot.

Timothy was such a nice guy and was kind enough to give us each a souvenir. I got his book of famous portraits. Thanks for the opportunity, Bravo!

Next day we had a shoot (test) with Cosmo mag, which didn’t go well for me. I was in my head and couldn’t get out. Sounds so unprofessional. I had just seen my wife and son the night before, first time in two months. No excuse to be off my game and I feel quite embarrassed about my performance today.

13th Runway – Crazy and Refined

Two walks – one in a crazy fun suit, one in a sleek Ben Sherman number.

So final final final. This one was a big one.

I walked well, with a slight step as the first suit was a bit out there, so I had to wear it like I owned it.

Second suit I loved. It felt tailored! I had a confident walk and was feeling good … until …

Oh well…it’s all over Tyson pretty much threw my book at me and got rid of me.

Got this far so don’t feel too bad, but am I disappointed? Absolutely. Let's see if getting this far will help my career. Hope to see you all around.
