The First Week
Tyson takes a look at all the models for this season.
We called Tyson and got his take on this past week's show. Here is what he had to say about each model.
Aryn got a little too emotional about her picture. In this business, you just can't get too emotional about your picture. If everyone loves it, then be happy with that. She knows her personal best and she felt she didn't achieve it, and I just don't want her to spend too much time dwelling on it. There are too many challenges coming up. As long as the photographer is happy with it, and the client is happy with it, then she should be fine.
Ben is very photogenic. I think with Ben, he needs to work on that walk. Because he's got that "I'm a prison guard" walk, and it scares me, so I want to get him away from that.
I don't know what to do about Casey's walk. It's so bad! Everyone else I worked with, I improved their walk one hundred percent, except for Casey and Dominic. What Casey has going on, Cory loves it, but I'm not a big fan yet of Casey. Don't get me wrong, he's a great guy as far as passion, but I'm not convinced yet he has what it takes to go all the way.
Dominic's walk is a little better.
Frankie is a great guy, he's got a great personality, but I see him as maybe more of a TV guy. He might not really be high fashion, and I'm kind of surprised he's made it this far. He seems a little cocky
Holly's got the look, but to me, she's got to win me over. We have to change her hair. She's just got to do something with her hair.
Jacki disappointed me this week, everyone knows that. I need Jacki to get back. And her thing with the swimsuit thong, that really messed her up. She could be in the bottom three next week if she doesn't get herself together.
One hundred percent improvement on his walk. All I said to him was, "you're from the ATL, you're from Chicago. I know guys from your neighborhood who don't walk like you, okay? Give me that swagger." And you know what? He gave it to me.
Katy needs to tighten up her legs and lose that mid-section.
He did great last week. His photo shoot was strong, he put stuff into the fire and he improved on his walk, even though he had a broken foot, mind you. That guy could walk circles around everyone.
We're going to be good with him once he's less cheesy. We're going to get some good entertainment out of him in the next few weeks. His walking needs some help, but it's nothing we can't fix.
Sarah made some of the adjustments when she needed to, but overall I'm not sure her body type is right for this. The swimsuit and the runway kill her, but when she's in clothes she looks, to me, amazing. Today, when she had on skinny jeans and the wifebeater, you couldn't see the torso and the legs. But, I think, overall, she might be an actress.
Shannon's got to get rid of that walk that she thinks she's gotten down. She's got bad hips, so she's got to be aware that leaning back, with those hips, can mess her up. She's really got to make that adjustment. And her being six feet tall is not all that normal for our industry, because usually it's 5' 11'. She's not one of my favorites yet, but she can be worked with.
Stephanie is too far in the back. She's quiet and we've spoken to her about it. We expect Stephanie to really step up, because she did really well in her photo shoot. She, to me, is my sleeper. She might turn around and win the whole thing. If she can get Jacki's walking skills, or Aryn's walking skills, we've got some big things going on.
BRAVOTV.COM: You rocked a bikini this week, Tyson.
I'm 37, and I can still put that bathing suit on. I told those kids, I'll be 67 and still put it on. I'm always going to be that. That's what a supermodel is: 67, 37, 17. If you're in any one of those age groups, and you're still able to take a look and lock it down.
