Tyson says goodbye to Casey, and critiques the remaining models.

Casey's off the show, but he'll work. He'll do things, but as far as being that overall supermodel, he's not it and he knows it. He knew that from the day he got here and he was just happy to learn what he learned. He's a good kid.
In terms of how all of these kids will fare after the show ends, we've put out some great models. I don't think any of the ones the public has voted off so far are going to end up being supermodels. I don't know if they're going to be household names, but they're going to be great models.

But let's get down to this week.

Ben

Ben's only got two looks, so a graveyard was the perfect place for him. He did his thing in there.

Holly

Holly did well too. She's an overall versatile girl, so you can basically put her anywhere and she'd be alright. She's definitely a winner, and it looks like she could win this whole thing.

Perry

Perry did well. He's dealing with some issues right now with his girlfriend. He's got to deal with all of that when he gets out of here. I've lived through that for my whole career, with people just putting things in the paper that aren't true. You just gotta suck it up and know tomorrow will just be another scandal. Tomorrow it'll be somebody else, and something bigger. All you've got to do is ride the wave and it'll all die down.

Shannon

Shannon didn't do so well. We'll find out how it goes. She's going up against Ronnie who has a lot of fans behind him. He's very popular, so I worry about her.

Ronnie

Ronnie did alright, he didn't do that well, obviously, because he's in the bottom. What was so great was that he was honest about it. He told the truth when he was asked who should be in the bottom 2. I was like, wow! I think it was great because he knew he didn't do so well. He put Shannon and himself in there, and to me, there was no better pick than them.

Portraying the Sexy

Tyson Beckford offers his final words on the three finalists.

Bravotv.com: We have the finale. First, the three guys have to shoot those Polaroid pictures and it was kind of less is more in those pictures. Do you think that is harder to do?
Yeah, it’s just like an actor playing himself. It’s harder to play yourself than to play someone else.

Bravotv.com: What did that opportunity mean for them to shoot with that camera and that photographer?
It’s a once in a lifetime event. Probably by now, there’s not that much film left in the world for that camera. So, not too many people are really going to have a chance to shoot with it. I was fortunate to shoot with it at least three times in my career. And I also got to shoot with it while we were on the set as well.

Bravotv.com: Who do you think did the best in that part?
I believe it went to, I have to say, the first was Branden, then the second was Sandhurst, and then Jonathan. And then once they got to the photo shoot at Cosmo, Jonathan just did the same pose. Even when they were asking him to change, he still didn’t change. He just stood there. And he even admitted, “Yo, I’m stuck in neutral.” I guess under all that pressure, he couldn’t suffice. And then again, Sanhurst, when he was asked to do something, he too couldn’t portray that sexy. And then when Brandon was up there, he just had fun with it.
I think in the last episode you see Branden having the most fun, which helped determine why he was the winner. So, that’s why it came in third, second, first, the way that it did.

Bravotv.com: Do you think the right person won?
By that, episode, yeah, I think so. He clearly was the one to accelerate when it needed to be accelerated and I personally thought Sanhurst was going to take it but he fell short with the Cosmo cover. And then he did the thing of taking his shirt off, which loosened him up, but you’ve got to be able to keep your shirt on and still do the job.

Bravotv.com: And the final catwalk. You’ve kind of been critical of Branden’s catwalk. Did you see an improvement?
Yeah, It’s definitely better. It’s not up to supermodel status but that’s what the cards dealt. It definitely got better because he took my advice and kept his hands in his pocket so it avoided his arms looking like they were swaying. He’s got this "hip-hop homeboy" style of walking when his arms are out.Bravotv.com: What would your final advice for each of them be?
Don’t quit. They’ve made it this far. They’re definitely models. Look at Jonathan who booked a2xist underwear campaign ad, which should be coming out shortly. Sanhurst just has to get out there and get his grind on like you said Jennifer Hudson did with American Idol, but she sure won an Oscar. So don’t count him out just yet. Brandon, he’ll go overseas. He’s not just going to stay here in the U.S. He’ll definitely do what Holly did. We’ll send him overseas. We saw him grow up in front of us. Like his mom send, she sent me a boy and I sent her back a man.

Bravotv.com: Are you going to continue to mentor him at all?
I always stay close to all the kids. So when they call me, I’ll hook him up. You can’t not help him. Even thought I’m not so much in that business, but it’s like riding a bike — you never forget.

Bravotv.com: What can your fans expect from your movie career and producing?
The next one is going to have some action in it. No doubt about it. We’re definitely going to put down some action in this next movie

Bravotv.com: Are you actually acting in it? Or are you producing it?
I’m acting and producing in it. I was told that two other films that were definitely on the independent film festival tour are coming out soon.

Bravotv.com: Do have any parting words?
I thank all the viewers for watching and keeping us close to their heart.
