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

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

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.
mmas_blog_casey.jpg

Casey

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

Dominic's walk is a little better.

Frankie.

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
mmas_blog_holly.jpg

Holly

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.
mmas_blog_jacki.jpg

Jacki

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.
mmas_blog_jay.jpg

Jay

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.
mmas_blog_katy.jpg

Katy

Katy needs to tighten up her legs and lose that mid-section.
mmas_blog_perry.jpg

Perry

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.
mmas_blog_ronnie.jpg

Ronnie

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.
mmas_blog_sarah.jpg

Sarah

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.
mmas_blog_shannon.jpg

Shannon

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.
mmas_blog_stephanie_.jpg

Stephanie

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.

Make Us Proud

Nicole weighs in on who kicked butt, and who didn't cut it.

First the models had to do a shoot with fire. What do you think the photographer was looking for?

I think, because of the production and because the flames are expensive to do, it's like one dry cut. You get one shot. He was looking for someone who could exude rock n roll energy in that small amount of time. He's a one take director. You have to be a one take model. He was looking for someone who could bring energy. He shoots celebrities, so he's also looking for character. That's why Sandhurst kicked butt. He wasn't just a model, he was a character in a movie. It was like X-Men or something. That's what he was looking for. Everyone was okay. Sandhurst inspired that photographer and gave him something he wasn't looking for.

They all went to Bloomingdale's for a go-see. Have you done something like that?

Never. That's for B-Models, but it's a great way to interact with people because you are selling a product at all times. It's good to know what you're selling and it's good to see people who know the designer's name. It was kind of cute though. Mountaha was a little nervous and that comes across a lot. She's not comfortable in her own skin and she's too driven and anxious. I think that people see that. You've got to be relaxed around people. You could be a good model, but if people aren't comfortable around you then you're not going to get anywhere. Whey they shopped their personalities really showed. It was interesting to watch. I loved how Branden just got a suit. It was almost his claim to becoming a man. I'm going from little boy to man. That was awesome. Mountaha just wanted ridiculous Christian Dior shoes. That's such a female, Sex and the City type thing to want great shoes. Sandhurst was so humble. He just got everything for his family. I liked that.

For the runway it was nothing crazy this week, the models just got dressed up and dapper.

I thought the wig didn't work for Mountaha. Wigs look bad even if they're custom for your head. I thought that was unlucky for her and she didn't make it work. You can't say something though. You're a canvas. Sometimes it's luck. She should have brought more to the runway. She could have brought some personality to it. She didn't perform in the photo as well. I was shocked she just stood there. I really noticed her hands though. I shoot Victoria's Secrets and they've said I have good hands and feet and know how to hold them. That's really important. People don't realize it. It's the small details like hands that make a big impact on a photo. If your hand looks weird you notice it. I loved the way she used hers and she was very conscious of them.

Do you think she deserved to go home?

The boys have been a bit stronger so it's really hard to say. It's such a hard thing in the end. I don't know if she deserved it. Someone like Jonathan who is good looking and charming but isn't unique maybe should have gone home. Branden has also been lucky, but he has a lot to give. I think that Sandhurst is commercial, but he's been incredible. It was a tough decision for the judges. It's going to be tough.

What do you think the guys have to do to win next week?

Bring out the best in themselves and take risks. Practice, practice, practice, especially on their runway. Be strong and charming and show the judges that if they're going to be chosen that they're gonna make us proud. They have to let go of that fear and anxiety. They have to know they've come this far for a reason.
