The models had to do a 1960s inspired mod shoot. They were working in pairs. Let's go through each pair of models. First we have Branden and Sandhurst. Sandhurst had some trouble keeping his eyes open.
The boys reaked of insecurity. They looked so damn uncomfortable. I felt sorry for them because they were so inhibited by their ego so they couldn't get into it. It's fun. It's the 60's. I can't believe they couldn't just embrace it and have fun with it. It sucked.
Branden pointed at the camera.
He was completely clueless with what he was doing. They lacked confidence and charm.
Next you have Jonathan and Jordan, who worked really well together.
They did. They were awesome. I loved everything about what they did. They went first and they did a great job. Loved it.
Kerryn and Colin. The judges said they had no chemistry.
I don't think they should have paired up together because in real life they have some stuff going on, so when they're in front of the camera they're just not good actors. Leave your personal sh-- at home. Work is work and you gotta leave it at home, which is what we've been telling them.
Kerryn got sent home and wasn't happy about it. Do you think it was too early for her?
It was hard, because it's getting down to some tough competition. She's had a really beautiful run. I would have liked to see her stay. I feel she could have improved a lot and she's improving quickly, so she showed us that she can do that. I thought she should have stayed longer.
Then there's Laury, who was also eliminated.
I thought Laury could have been eliminated in the first few weeks. That was no surprise to me at all. She just needs to be more confident about her face. Her energy is a little big crazy sometimes. She needs to just take a chill pill and direct her energy and know where she's focusing her energy. Nothing rang true about her for me.
Did you agree with Marlon about how she should have been more confident with the style war?
That's the thing. Some of Laury's decisions I was confused with. She has this idea of what she's meant to look like in her head, but she's not really taking anything we're saying to her. She's the one dictating and she's her own worst enemy.
Then there was Mountaha and Salome.
I loved their photo. I loved watching them shoot. They fit into the 60s so well and they were both so adorable. They had good chemistry. It was awesome. I have to say something I noticed about Salome, when she went on the go-see this week and said, "I feel like they're wasting my time and theirs." I thought that was the most ridiculous comment. If I would have known she had said that I would have kicked her out. In modeling, you only get 10 percent of the castings you go on. You get turned down every day and if she's gonna have that attitude it's not going to work.
You did an Elie Tahari campaign. How do you think they did with that?
Mountaha is awesome, but she's definitely not the Tahari look. It's just one of those things that didn't fit together. Salome, she's really green, and she's loving being green. She's making every single person know she's green instead of trying to fit into the industry and be cool and calm and collected. She's a little too camp.
Laury thought it was an act. Do you think she genuinely doesn't know what things are?
There's some authenticity to it. She's really naive and she's a little bit annoying. It's interesting that she's never watched TV and because we found interest in her she's using it and she'll be like, "Oh, I don't know." But you knew how to get on Make Me A Supermodel so you must know something.
What about Colin?
Colin is impoving. I loved his creativity with the photo shoot. I was expecting him to be the shy one, but Kerryn was. She lacked confidence on the photo shoot. He's so spunky.
She's getting a little weak. I feel some demons fighting her right now. She's got to be careful because she's created some enemies in the house. She needs to edgy up a little. She's really commercial, but we seemed to edgy her up a little bit with her hair and she needs to have a different attitude. She's doing pretty well so we'll see how it goes.
Have you ever done a style war?
No. I thought it was awesome. I had fun watching it. I was just so in awe in what they were doing. I thought it was so cool. It was a fun episode.
Who do you think is a frontrunner now?
Mountaha, because she's consisent which is important. Sandhurst is a frontrunner. Jonathan is a frontrunner. Jordan is a frontrunner. Colin is a frontrunner.
