Destiny's Child

Jonny describes 'The Fashion Show's' first challenge and another side of Merlin.

The First Day

The time has finally come!!! The meeting of all my competitors!!! I was wondering how I was going to react??? But as I walked off the elevator and took that right into the work room I was greeted with open arms. The most memorable person was in half drag, red body suit, white boots and a red hat with a three foot peasant tailored feather pinned on the side with an acrylic broach. LOL. MERLIN!!! He was super-cool. I could tell he was humble and possibly could teach me a lot.

As the others slowly arrived the atmosphere was still pleasing. Personally it was kind of odd that we all actually can’t hang but … this is only the beginning.

Suddenly Ms. Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi walked through the door, I thought to myself, "Wow, not a model???" But she was hot and kept the energy up. Ohh … don’t let me forget about our extra fab host Isaac. I have found new respect for his sense of humor.

Anyways …the first mini-challenge we have to make a lil black dress. What the hell. I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. I made the most hoochie mamaish dress in the world. But I was going for a more early Destiny’s Child’s look because of Ms. Rowland.

The First Elimination

Going into elimination, I felt confident in not going home but I didn’t feel the same way about my team memebers … low and behold we were safe and our response was laughter. It was funny but not. My team was wonderful. I think we worked well together. It was hard to see Jonny Day go home. I saw where he was going with his pieces but at the end of the day it is a competition. Kristin was in the bottom two with Jonny Day for elimination. On the way back to the hotel she was crying about the audience's comments and I told her ”You’ll get a lot of horrible comments in this business and when you get to my age you’ll develop thick skin."  Keeping my eye on the prize.
