Camila Alves

Camila comments on Janine and Brig's catfight.

on Mar 25, 20100

Tonight was an episode like no other! With only four finalists left, it was the first time that no one was eliminated. There was also no shortage of drama, it is clear that the remaining finalists do not like Brig, but I felt the need to call out Janine on her issue with her. Hence, a catfight ensued!!

I have to say that I am a little disappointed with Brig's attitude. She is not showing much respect to the experts, doesn't accept responsibility, cannot take criticism and had a few things to say like, "I please myself" and "I don't see what you see!"

In the first challenge, the stylists sculpted the hair of the models by utilizing a tool, a style, and an inspiration as chosen by their competitors. I loved what Janine did with the crimping iron, the mullet and the rainbow. I thought it was creative, even though she did not win.

The second challenge of updating and modernizing some of the most memorable styles in American cinema was great to judge. The photographs came out beautifully, even if the original style fell apart.

I can't wait until next week, where the last four contestants do my hair!

Remember, HAIR IS IMPORTANT!

Beijos,
Camila

Oi Camila, eu estava na holanda e assistia o seu programa! Eu adorava e não perdia nem as reprises.. Achava até engraçado a tensão que existia entre Brig e Matthew e Janine! Beijos, Ana Carolina

What a rigged show!! Brig made it to the finale only due to what you all think is "good" tv....she skated by on nothing more than horrible hair show by show by show. I wouldn't let her near my hair!! And to win the entire contest?? Please!! I thought this was about hair...not dyed extensions. I'm tired of shows that are nothing more than playing to the drama that some thrive...this is the last time I watch "Rigged Shear Genius".

I think Brig has been much more professional than Janine. Janine needs to get a life an quit talking so much about Brig. It's obvious she feels threatened. How old are you really Janine! Keep up the good work Brig and ignore the nastiness of those who are obviously threatened by you.

I have to agree with Cristina in Tampa. Camila Alves is lovely. However, I don't know how the contestants understand what she's saying. Her accent is very difficult to understand and at times it's quite distracting. Please bring back Jaclyn Smith!!! We miss her.

I also struggle at times to understand with no disrespect. I am told that my accent is difficult to understand from those in other parts of our own country, but I don't feel as though I have an accent at all. Anyway, I think Janine is one sneaky person and nobody sees this. She pretends each week to get up there and act as though it is about the judges and wanting to please them, but I don't believe that. I now believe it has turned into just proving Brig wrong, which doesn't earn my respect. I hope Matthew wins if anyone has to. I don't care for any of them at this point. By the way, who in the world made Kim Vo a judge. Has anyone noticed his surfer boy swoop. WTH?

You must be kidding with the hair styles Brig produced. Her winning the challenge was ridiculous. I've seen piles of hay in a field with more style. I did not see judges this week, I saw people who helped eliminate Sheer Genius from my weekly viewing schedule. I have no idea what you are trying to prove, HAIR IS IMPORTANT, but ugly is ugly and Brig's contribution to the show was SHEER UGLY.

Choosing Brig for the winner of this last challenge changes the title of the show to "Shear Madness"! The yellow haired, talentless hack created 2 versions of the Bride of Frankenstein. Both styles (& I use the term loosely) were UGLY!!!

YEah BRIG!
YEah BRIG!

Janine was rude. I hate rude and mean people. She didn't need to put Brig down that way. I was suportive of her until now. Go Brig. I like it how Brig has her own style. It's not like the other contestant who's style are all the same. Brig style shows who she is and that's what I like. She's not afraid to speak out for herself or show who she is.

All in all the judges need to be more professional when in the photo shoot. Really! Keep mouth shut make comments on paper! One thing Kim Vo saying something about Brigs do when he said I was thinking no way. Well lets put it this way you were not thinking you were thinking out loud. I really hope the judge realize the day will come the same way for them. Miss you Jaclyn Smith. Want you back!!!!!!

This show has lost all it's appeal for me. Brig doesn't deserve the win yesterday. How would I look if I took the filter from my air conditioner, spray paint it blond and tied it on the top of my head? THE JUDGES SHOULD VOTE FOR WHO'S STYLE IS BEST, NOT FOR WHAT WOULD MAKE HIGHER RATINGS. Face it, Brig's style only works for drag queens! GET RID OF BRIG - GET RID OF BRIG - GET RID OF BRIG - JUDGE THE SHOW FAIRLY - LET THE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE IT WIN - NOT THE PERSON WITH THE WORST STYLE IN THE WORLD = BRIG.

I could care less about the little catfights, etc., that go on in this show. The fact remains that the few times Brig has attempted to style REAL hair she has failed horribly. And the branding last night was even worse. I've said from the very beginning that it would be Jon, Matthew and Janine. I think who really enjoys a good catfight are the judges. Fess up!! There is no reason Brig should have made it this far. I like someone who is unique....she just simply has no style....I would be scared to death to let her touch MY hair!! Let's see if this show really lives up to it's name on the finale.

I can not believe that Brig is still in the contest! Her disrespect towards the judges is and her profession is a disgrace. Brig can not style a persons hair! If you give her extentions she can make you look like a freak.

I love Camila to death...but I struggle each week to understand many of the words that she mis-pronounces.... I'm wondering if she is actively taking English classes specifically for this gig...? If it were just the case of a strong accent, that would be one thing...but I don't think I'm alone when I say that some of the words are extremely hard to decipher/translate..... Cristina

Brigg should have gone home along time ago. She is in the bottom group a majority of the time. I feel the only reason she is being kept around is to keep the drama going to bring an audience to the show.

I used to like Janine, but she has gotten so self righteous and her attitude has become sickening!

I'm sorry and I do not mean to hurt your feelings, however please get a new line "Hair is important" than what, it's like your only saying half of a sentence or thought.

Camila, is absoutely right. If you are in a contest and have the benefit of PROFESSIONAL opinion listen to it. You can always have your own position but you have to be respectful. Brig is not, she's smug! Love you Camila!

Brig has never been disrespectful. She has only stood up for herself and for her personal vision. And it's not only apparent that the other contestants don't care for Brig, but it's also painfully obvious that the judges are harboring personal bias against her.

It has been disappointing to see the judges unable and/or unwilling to reserve personal bias and judge based entirely on the finished result. If the models were judged without knowing who the stylist was, I think there would have been different outcomes on several of the challenges.

As a beauty industry professional myself-- if I had to choose between working with Brig or Janine, I'd choose Brig. She has shown nothing but enthusiasm for every challenge, whether or not that challenge might be beyond her current skill, and the closest thing to "talking trash" she's done has been in her own defense.

Janine's skills are excellent, but the way she looks down on others and refuses to show a professional respect for her colleagues overshadows those skills.

As a professional, I'd prefer to work with Brig; as a consumer, I'd choose Brig as my stylist. At least I could be certain that she would LOVE doing my hair and enthusiastically tackle any challenge I brought her. Janine would roll her eyes and wrinkle her nose and talk sh*t about me when I leave.

What you see is what you get with Brig. I have not been a fan throughout the season. But Janine is a sneaky B, and I find I am more sympathetic to Brig. At least Brig delivers the snarkiness with no apologies. Janine seems to justify her behavior with "being so much better." Janine is no better than Brig as a person. Janine lost my support. I'm hoping Matthew wins it now.

Brig absolutely needs to go. She does not deserve to be here. She has not pulled through as much as the other stylists have. I believe that she should've been cut long ago. I also agree that Brian should have been there and not Brig. I don't believe that Janine is just as disrespectful. I've not seen her disrespect any of the judges, and I believe she is a great contestant. Janine ftw.

You guys forget to tell people that the show is somewhat rigged. You guys make Brig out to be the villain. Someone has to be for good TV, right?

okay you got that right with Brig but the wonder twins they need to lose the 'tude too. I'm hoping Jon or Brig break up these wonder twins cause it's getting kinda annoying!

I think Brig has done very well considering she is not liked. I have liked many of her styles over the others.

Why aren't you disappointed with Janine? Does anyone except Janine feel it is professional the way she treats Brig? I think Janine is mean.

I think that showing respect to the experts is just as important than showing respect to your castmates, and if anyone is completely disrespectful in that regard is Janine. Instead of focusing on bad energy and badmouthing Brig she should be focusing on herself. At least for me, a faithful viewer, she is trying to make the world hate Brig, when I am actually liking her (Janine) less and less each day.

Please the Matthew and Janine have acted like they are so far above anyone else! They are arrogant, rude, and on purpose choose who stays and goes by thier behavior and the judges up until this week have bought it. Had Brig done what Janine did it would have been ripped up one side and she would have been sent home. The judges from the beginning have decieded who they want in the top two and belive me Matthew and Janine will be there because they are T.V. friendly, No one who isn't T.V. Pretty will ever win!

Never would have thought that Jon would turn out to be my favorite, but that's exactly what has happened! I sure hope he goes all the way, but if not, I sure hope it isn't Matthew!

Good luck Jon!

Seriously! you need a new tag line! I mean, hair is important? is that the best you could come up with??

The reality is that in every competitive program that BRAVO sponsors (Top Chef, Shear Genius, etc.) MANY of the competitors have that "screw you" attitude. Brig's not alone in her self-centered, egoistic approach to how others perceive her and judge her work. Jon flipped the bird in one of his "up close" clips. On Top Chef, its not uncommon for a contestant to excuse their poor behavior with an "It's the way I am...get over it." In short, too many of the comptetitors are immature and selfish. The can't stand it if someone tells them to (in Jon's sophisticated lingo) "suck it," but they don't have ANY problem dishing it out. Add HYPOCRITE to the list of behaviors displayed by these egoists. They don't want anyone to judge THEIR crude / egotistical immaturity, but look out world when THEY want to tell everyone how full of crap they are! What a bunch of babies.

Agree, Janine is disrespectful. Hope she loses it. Brig is the winner, she's so talented!

Janine;s comment about her and Matthew had the best hair in the short cut challenge show how much she thinks that she can do no wrong. I think Jon deserved to win and also stay on the show. Brig may have an attitude but it is a defense mechanism. If i had Janine criticizing me all the time, I would have an attitude too. I don;t like the way that Brig treats the judges but she is already n defense mode. Janine thinks she already has this competition in the bag. I hope Jon pulls out all the stops and wins it all

I like Brigg's ability to endure and the comments Janine was making under her breath to her model were derisive & displayed poor sportsmanship. You called her out, yes, but why I do not know. The evaluation was being made by the judges & by allowing Janine to add her very biased opinion was unfair. You delivered her the podium. What other contestant was able to vent to judges regarding a competitor & in front of that competitor. Self-serving Janine, pass her the cheese to go with the whine. What were your motivations as moderator....gee,drama. Oh, my!

Of course I am totally addicted to this show, but please-oh-please, knock off the "hair is important" lest Janine's hugely overinflated ego finally explodes her head.

I could endure Brig's vocal self indulgent perspective a hundred times to one of little Miss Janine's annoyingly immature cattiness towards Brig and/or anything or anyone she intuitively senses is just as talented, if not more so, than she.

That she tolerates Matthew is no surprise given that he seems to have the personality type of a piece o' boardwalk taffy -- the more he's massaged (in this case, his ego), the more pliable he becomes with the inevitable outcome the same.

Watch out, Matthew - in the end, your BFF will eat you, too...

Begone, vile Janine. And just so you know, you are in NO WAY as talented or as cute as you seem to think you are.

I've been a hairstylist for over 25 years and I wonder where the producers found Brigg to be a participant. I respected this show as something great and inspirational for our industry, but it is obvious to me that they are concerned more for ratings than talent as Brigg has been in the bottom more than anyone, and continues to stay....because I believe she is the one that people love to hate and keeps them tuned in! She boosts the ratings! Her skills, in my opinion, are limited and poor at best! Get her off the salon floor!

I agree with you on Brig..but she make the show alot more interesting than boring. I'm hoping for Jon and Brig to rise and lets break up the wonder twins..YAY!!!

Send Brig home if she's so bad, which I do believe she is. Also, who is Janine to question the judges? She got this 'tuide that she's so superior. I will say she is very good but she's not as much as she believes she is.

At least Brig is honest about her stupidity while Janine is undermining the role or the judges. Doesn't really matter, this series has run its course.

I love the show but have a problem with your catchphrase "HAIR IS IMPORTANT". In the grand scheme of things hair is not that important. Think of people that have lost their hair to chemotherapy, genetics or even a bad stylist. I do not think that phrase makes them feel good. Bravo is usually more clever and inspiring.

Last night's ep's conclusion was a copout! In any other competitive situation, when one contestant states that he/she should be sent home for poor work, he/she is sent packing. Brig did exactly that, yet got to stay to play another day. That decision demeaned the other contestants who showed respect for the opportunity and judges. If you all don't care who remains, neither do I.

Why don't you just come out and say the judges are in love with the Dynamic Duo? In your eyes, Janine and Matthew can do no wrong. On this challenge there was no questions that Yan and Brig's models were clearly the best. Still, what did you say? I'm not going to bother to watch any longer. The win is fixed.

I agree with you on brigs comments. But Janine is just as disrespectful with her comments! She needs to grow up and realize everyone has their own personality and brig is just out there sometimes but whoo made janine THE BOSS!!!
