The Guys Outnumber the Girls

As the competition heats up, it also gets real.

BRAVOTV.COM: We're beginning to see the models really feel the competition and compete with each other personally -- what's your take on that?

Yes, it's funny. The more models eliminated-- the more the competition is reality. I think it's good that they are finally figuring out that this isn't a game.

BRAVOTV.COM: This episode was about video. What's the challenge that comes with that?

The challenge is to remember that this is video but still about your product. Not over acting to put the focus on you instead of the product you are selling or promoting.
BRAVOTV.COM: Looking back at the competition so far, what have been the biggest surprise for you?

That it is so out - numbered, the ratio of guys to girls. I really didn't expect that.

BRAVOTV.COM: What was your take on Frankie?

I think Frankie is a great guy. He really grew tons during the show, and learned to accept change. We saw a different Frankie in the end.

Ben

He had a tough week. We still can't put our finger on what's really going on with him. Something has been going on for the past couple weeks.

Casey

We are trying to figure out what makes him over think what he's doing. It causes him to not be at his best.

Holly

She's really starting to come into her own. She really was on top this week in everything she was given to do.

Perry

He is trying to find that balance in his personal and professional attitude. He keeps making adjustments each week and hopefully will find the right combination soon.

Ronnie

He takes each piece of feedback we give him and professionally digests it to adjust. He is a pleasure to encourage.

Shannon

I am still waiting to learn more about the real person that she is.

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.
