Well, I have to admit the reunion episode was CRAZY! Andy Cohen = an amazing interviewer and mingling with all the models again was relaxed when the pressure of competition was lifted. However, like all things in show business, the demanding questions of "Who are you with?" "What work have you booked?" were in full force. I was happy to say my vacation to the Bahamas was well deserved but work with Irene Marie and shoots in Miami have left my schedule packed! I even took an interest in acting classes and becoming a member of SAG. If this show left me with anything, the most important value I learned is my place in career choices. Hollywood Darling!
But on to the show...I must admit pretty much everyone was well behaved except the minor complaints from Holly that "these boys are driving me crazy!" ha ha! She definitely deserves an S on her chest. Throughout the taping, a light mood was in the air until Jennifer Starr put her Negative Nancy twist to the scenario and told Jay and I she probably wouldn't book us for work.
As much as I respect her opinion, she is one of many casting directors, just like I am one of many models. She slapped me with a "no" but the story is all too common. In other words, Jen maintains a high-profile position because she worked her ass off to get there. Like all top-dogs of any industry you're greeted with a million "No's" before you get the one "Yes" that opens doors. You better believe it happens everyday to working models; mine just happened to be nationally broadcast.
Surely, I wouldn't let her opinion stop me from booking work, even if I have to crawl through windows or break down those doors! It's called persistence, or 'working your ass off' like I stated before.
All and all the reunited cast learned the public loves Bronnie* and the shirts were a hilarious hit! Another fun fact, Tyson confirmed his single status was inaccurate but our love affair couldn't be denied when I snatched a kiss backstage! His lips took up my entire cheek!
Fun and Games, it's sad to say our journey is almost over but on the other hand it also has just begun! For one winner (who at the time I thought would be Perry or Holly but now I think is Ronnie) their life will be changed forever! GQ, 100g's, and NYModels, please honey! The perks don't stop there if 'the chosen one' keeps a good head on their shoulders and let's the work speak for itself. The Public loves you Ronnie! Go on with your bad self...: )
