Camila Alves

Camila addresses comments about her accent, and what she said to Giacomo.

on Feb 11, 20100

Has there ever been anyone's hair you wanted to eat?I wanted to eat Brian's! Can you believe what he did to the model at the Shortcut Challenge? Good thing he did well at the elimination. One hair style I didn't want to eat was MINE. I must say my hair style today was not my favorite one, but hey, that's what can happen when you are really going for it. Trust me, it only gets better from here on and you're gonna see me looking so different in every episode: from long to short, from bang to afro, you may get inspired to have fun with your own look!  Now, if any of you are having a hard time understanding me just keep watching, by the third episode your gonna want to learn a little Portuguese yourself ... ha!

Now let's get to business ... I was so upset when Giacomo said he was leaving the show I had a whole argument with him about how disrespectful and inconsiderate he was, taking the place of a hairstylist that truly wanted to be part of the competition and just throwing that away. I was very upset with him, but they did not show that part on the show. So for all the hairstylists that wanted to be a part of the competition and were sitting at  home watching that moment just know that I was thinking of you all!

Beijos Camila

I completely agree that to add some spice to the show and to keep the viewers tuned in for next season .... axe Camila and bring Tabatha from from Tabatha's Salon Takeover onboard ...

PLEASE replace her. I know, all shows like "the accent", but an accent and no hair experience other than having hers done, does not in any way make her qualified. Many mannerisms turn me off... sounds like many others. This is out of character for me, by far!

I'm so glad Brig won. I liked Brig because she was true to herself, and she worked hard at not letting Janine get her down. Janine came across to me as a spitefully jealous little squirt. I've worked with stylists like her, and I'm usually happiest when they are walking out the door.

The accent has bothered me for the entire season. It's as if she's faking and trying to sound ultra sophisticated. I'd rather hear her speaking as if she's relaxing with friends. Other than that, I enjoyed the show.

I think Tabatha from the Salon Takeover would be just fenomenal on Shear Genius. I'd love to see her hosting or at least appering as a judge at some point. She is so real and it is fun to see how she handles people!!!! I bet she would bring up the rates as well!!!!!

ugh it is soo annoying when she says "remember, hair is important" and puts her index up in the air, what kind of trend is she trying to create??

Janine I know you're in your 20's and we all know it all when we are there. But,now that I am not in my 20's I have learned compation or not as the saying goes you get more bees with honey than vinagar. In other words you come acrossed as a mean,spoiled,little brat(see I used a nicer word than I want) lighten up. So what if Brig is the round peg in a square hole (not like you) have fun with it laugh at her learn to be nicer. It will come in handy in the furture.:)another saying is treat people the way you would want to be treated,I've tried it, it does work sometimes.:)

I love Camile, but sometimes foreigners want to loose their accent so bad, they want to speak like an american. There is nothing wrong speaking the a language with no accent but I think she needs to be who she is. I think the Brazilian women trying to speak english is sexy. Camila please relax and be you, the more she tries to speak perfectly the more it comes out unnatural.

I find it very hard to understand what she is saying and i do not like her expression when she tells someone that they have to leave.Love the show, but will not watch it next season if she returns.

It takes away from a lot of the show trying to make out some of the words she says (new host). I would like to see tabitha or someone who has some years behind them in the hair industry. To me the new host is like Lil Mama as a judge on the dance show. How is she qualified? Yes I know she isn't a judge, again how is she qualified?

IMO Jacklyn Smith sucked as a host I like her as an actress but not right for this show. Camilla does seem to know a more about hair which is refreshing and I can understand her accent perfectly. All and all I really would like to see a hairdresser as a host.

I miss Jaclyn. It's not the new girls accent, well maybe a little. I was sorry to see Adee leave, we didnt get to see all of his potential and it seems Jonathan has a problem with him. He was very hard on him. Brig needs to leave she always giggling when the judges speak to the others and she is not that great.

The problem with the accent is that it makes it difficut understanding what you are saying. Like any other foreign accent it's very attractive but it shouldn't be that strong that pronunciation is completely wrong...sorry but it's true....

Camilla's accent is so charming and it relaxes me. I think it's exotic, and so is she.

Are you kidding people?? Jaclyn Smith sucked!! All she said every single episode was "the hair doesn't have any movement". She knew nothing about hair and her input was pointless. Camilla at least brings experience to the table and her input relates to the topics at hand.

Loved Jacklyn Smith. Did Bravo feel like they had to replace Jackylyn with a younger Heidi Klum type for Shear Genius? Jacklyn is classy and simply stunning. I like Camila, but don't feel like their is the depth there was when Jacklyn was there. I feel like Bravo had to find another younger model beauty to make it more like Project Runway.

Where is Jaclyn Smith? Loved her! Not impressed so much with the new girl!

Your accent has little to do with anything. It's just big shoes to fill when you stepped in for the iconic Jaclyn Smith who is greatly missed. She exuded warmth and charm; neither of which you have displayed until now. Hopefully, in time, you'll get there too. Good luck!

Your accent is charming. You have no reason to explain. I think the issue is that Jaclyn is missed. She had grace and warmth. So far, you have displayed neither. Given some time, the audience will get used to you. Good luck with this gig.

Hi Camila! I think your accent is perfectly understandable! For real! You just eat the "r" sometimes but nothing you can't improve :) Whoever says they cant understand you, they are just being lazy and showing how jealous they are they can speak probably one single language! I think you are absolutely charming and beautiful! I never watched Shear Genious before but when I saw you were gonna be the hostess I started watching for the first time. I think you give a fresh and modern charm to the show. Congratulations!

Camilla, we do not "dye" hair, we color hair.

Your accent is not as bad as the unidentifiable one on the guy from last season.. what was that? Talk about annoying and distracting.

Does anyone else miss last year's hostess, judges, mentors, etc? I am finding I do not enjoy this season at all. It's too bad.

I think it is ridiculous that people are criticizing your accent. You never hear people criticizing Europeans, when they speak English with their European accent.But as soon as someone with color speaks with an accent than thats when the ignorant people speak up. I guess as long as the person is white it is "all-white" to have an accent.. Hello people English is not the only language in the world, maybe if Americans could speak more than one language their attitude would change, but then it goes back to education and from what i see education is not of importance until one want to attend college, and by then people can't even write a paper let alone speak their own native tongue properly.

Hi! I already speak Potuguese, but I'm not sure how that will make me understand your English any better. :) I'm sure as the series goes on your accent improves. Don't worry about the negative comments, at least you are giving it a go.

I had never seen this show, and last night while changing channels I saw Camila's hair and decided to watch the episode. I enjoyed the show and look forward to the rest of the season. Camila you have gorgeous hair. I would love to see how both hairstyles that you wore on this episode (2) were created. Take care and good luck with this season.
