Not Playing Any More

Has Tyson ever bared all? Find out here! goes home -- what was your take on her?

I was very sad to see her go. week was the nude challenge. When you described the challenge to the models, did you think anyone would have a huge problem with it?

No. The real factor set in. They saw Aryn go home .... So, now the fear factor set in, like "OK - they're not playing any more." your modeling career, the first time you had to be nude, did you have trouble with it?

I shot an ad that appeared to be that way, but I never had to do it. ...

I was too intimidating. Once I said "No" that was it - they were scared to mess with me. It was like, "Well this kid does come from the street. He will kick my ass." most models just starting out get away with that?

Probably not. Probably not - no.


I heard Ben did really good. But he got a little shaky towards the end. ... He's never done anything like this before, and these kids had to hold the position for actually 10 minutes are so.


He did the same. He'd never really done it before and he didn't have such a good week at all. He ended up in the bottom three.


He was shaking as well, so he didn't do too well.


Holly did very well.


Jacki did extremely well too. ... She broke out in hives but it was all in her head. She didn't want to do it, but she still did it anyway.


He doesn't have a problem doing things. He's just ... this guy has no training whatsoever. I think the ones that never had the training, I could make them better, but we've gotten to a point now where we don't get to spend as much time training them as we used to. They just have to do it.


Another kid who doesn't have that much training. She's just not built physically for this business. She's an average-sized girl who's just really pretty. And the reason why she even stayed in this long is because guys get a kick out of looking at her. She's great eye candy for the guys. That might be the only reason she hasn't gone home yet.


That boy is just phenomenal. He's "it," you know what I mean.


He did very well. He was very easy to work with.


She's phenomenal too. She's like Perry.


She's an art student, so it was a breeze for her to do that because she does that all the time in class. She's sculpted, and she's sketched naked people. So she's been through that before, and she's the art [kid,] and she did exceptionally well. Again, Stephanie is my sleeper, who I think will do better than what people expect from her. She surprised us this week. I could tell by seeing her face that, when she walked into the room and I was telling the kids what they were going do, she was like, "Yeah - I can't wait to get naked!" Yeah - she's seems very comfortable with herself.

And that's what we want them all to be, man. If you're not comfortable with yourself, how are you going to be selling it? ...

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.
