Although the final three contestants onMake Me a Supermodelcouldn’t have been any hotter, I really thought that Jonathan had it in the bag. He had been consistent from the very beginning. Sandhurst was also a strong contender, but the judges complained that he peaked too early and couldn’t step up his game. And then there was Branden. Dear, sweet, barely-an-adult Branden Rickman. Since the beginning, he had been a bit cocky. However,I must say that after hearing more about his life and seeing his relationship with his mother, I warmed up to the boy. Of course, when a hot guy bursts out into tears over his mama it getsme every time. Check out this interview with Branden after the finale…
Tonight on Make Me a Supermodel, as the new crop of models get used to life in the house, personalities already start to clash as a few contestants show their disrespectful colors early on. The models’ nerves are heightened when they must attend a hair consultation with Bravo hair-guru Tabatha Coffey, where she decides whose locks will be chopped and whose will be spared. Later, the aspiring supermodels are in for a sweet treat when they are stripped down and transformed into candy for their photo assignment. Who will be able to truly capture the spirit of their assigned candy?
Bravo brings back their hit reality show, Make Me A Supermodel. Tyson Beckford’s still hosting, but the girls will have a new mentor this season, Nicole Trunfio. The series starts out just like last year, with the models showing up for the show – and finding that they are put to work right away!
Make Me a Supermodel season 2 will begin on Wednesday, March 4th at 10 PM ET. The contestants will be competing for $ 100,000 and a fashion pictorial in Cosmopolitan Magazine. Bravo will air a casting special on Saturday, February 7 at 11 PM ET and Reality TV has a couple of video and photo links for youto wet your appetite.
Make Me A Supermodelis returning for season twoon Bravo and the judges lineup has just been revealed to Reality TV magazine. Make Me A Supermodelfollows fourteen aspiring supermodels who will compete in a series of challenges designed to test their professional potential. In the process, the contestants learn that being beautiful isn’t enough to become king or queen of the catwalk. Each week, viewers at home decide which models will remain to vie for the $100,000 prize and a contract with New York Model Management, as well as a fashion spread in GQ magazine.
Make Me a Supermodel host Niki Taylor and her NASCAR husband Burney Lamar have announced they are expecting their first child. “Burney and I are very excited with this stage of our lives,” she told People last Thursday. “We’re thrilled.”
Make Me A Supermodel Season Two is now casting and they have launched an online casting site which allows fans to vote for one female and one male model that will be cast in the series. On Bravo’s website, you can view photos, video and bios of each supermodel hopeful.
Bravo TV is looking for their next supermodel to star in season two of Make Me a Supermodeland they are having open casting calls near you. If you have dreams of being a supermodel you don’t want to miss what may be your only chance to try out. Look at the list below to see when they are coming to your area.
America has voted. Who will be the next Supermodel? It’s time to find out, almost. First the models must be put through their paces. Niki reminds the models what is at stake. The grand prize is a contract with New York Model Management, $100,000, and a pictorial in GQ Magazine.
Now it’s time for the models to see what a day is like for a supermodel. They are given a map, a schedule, and some money and sent out on some go-sees. “I’m more worried about actually trying to find the place than the casting,” Perry says, as he asks for directions.
Ben is sent to Esprit. Shawan Johnson tells him what she expects from the brand’s face. “A little bit of sex appeal, but still wholesome.” Jennifer Starr is on hand to help out, and after a whispered bit of coaching (“Smile!”) Ben does well. “I would hire Ben,” Shawan says. Ben’s second stop is a little strange. Not only is he modeling pink-trimmed underwear, but the designers for Ginch Gonch want him to take a banana and act like a monkey. “Are you kidding me?” Ben asks, privately. He gamely does his best Curious George, but it’s half hearted.
Perry’s first stop didn’t have much feedback to give him, and he leaves not knowing if he was good or bad. Perry’s second stop finds him a bit too chatty. “Whether I would want to listen to him again for twenty minutes, is a different question,” the photographer says.
Holly hits Esprit as well, and Shawan Johnson loves her. “Holly is beautiful,” she says. “Actually had the best first impression.” Holly’s next stop is a reading for a hair coloring product. The casting director thinks she’s pretty, but notes, “She needs voice lessons desperately.”
Ronnie’s day is a mixed bag as well. Initially he shows up for Beeson, and designer Rebecca Beeson doesn’t like him. “My first impression is not favorable.” Ronnie finds a fan in the Ginch Gonch designers, though, and has fun playing with the banana. They ask him if he’s comfortable being touched by other men – I think they’ve found their new spokesperson!
It’s a whirlwind of fun cramming everything into the last couple of days. Jennifer Starr has arranged for another real supermodel to come visit. Jessica Stam has a cozy chat with the four contestants. Holly’s entranced, as Jessica is her idol. Turns out, Jessica grew up on a farm in Canada. Wonder if they have squirrel gravy up there? Maybe Holly can trade her famous recipe. Perry pipes up to ask how Jessica handles relationships, and if they are affected by fame. I think his girlfriend situation is weighing on his mind.
Niki scoops the models up and sends them to GQ’s headquarters, where she tells them to make a good impression. Perry is surprisingly difficult to fit, and Adam Rapoport, the GQ style director, decides suits are not the look for him. Ben is given an athletic outfit, but comes off looking stiff. Holly goes through three dresses before they find the right one. “The guys want sexy. I don’t know if she has it in her,” Adam says. Ronnie is immediately home in a Ralph Lauren outfit, but Adam votes on Perry as his favorite.
That night, there are some surprise visitors. April, Ben’s wife shows up – and meets Ronnie. There’s no hard feelings, though. Ronnie’s mom Charlene appears, and Ray arrives with a gift for his fiancÃƒe, Holly. Perry opens the door to find wayward girlfriend Amanda Pagel. She professes her love and seals it with a kiss, but refuses to answer any questions about her relationship with Britney’s ex-boyfriend. The couples bond, Ronnie flirts with Perry’s girlfriend (relax, Perry, she’s safe with him!), and the lovers say a tearful goodbye. They are all prepared to move to New York to help their modeling loved ones pursue their dreams, though.
Time for a last catwalk. The models strut their stuff stress free, and Holly does a fabulous editorial pose. Time to find out who America loves the most!
Perry is the first to go. He’s a little stunned that he was eliminated before Holly. Tyson doesn’t mince words, either, for the next elimination. “Ben, Ronnie, the Bromance is over. One of you is leaving the catwalk.” Tyson pauses for effect, then tells Ben his time on the runway is up.
Now it’s down to Holly and Ronnie. Niki compliments them both, and announces Holly wins. Holly is happy, and crying. Corey welcomes her to New York Modeling Agency, and gets ready to make the next Supermodel!

The ten previously eliminated models have been in lock-down, and only recently have they been able to see the show. Most were surprised at how they were portrayed, and Dominic is still complaining about the shoes he had to wear on the runway. Carry a grudge much, Dom?
The final four – Ben, Ronnie, Perry, and Holly – arrive. The girls all get hugs, but Holly purposely ignores all the guys. Of course, talk immediately turns to Ben and Ronnie’s Bromance. The other models all seem to think the guys’ relationship has contributed to their success. “It’s helped propel them,” Dominic says. “The public loves them,” Jacki adds.
Andy wonders what the inmates at Ben’s jail think of the whole situation. “Do they have Bravo at the jail?” he asks. “Yeah, they do,” Ben replies, but he doesn’t care what the jailbirds think about his friendship with Ronnie. He gives us the Deep Thought of the night. “It’s good to be open-minded and bad to be ignorant.”
Ben can’t resist a jab at Holly. When asked if he would kiss Ronnie, he replies, “Well, if I can make out with Holly, I can make out with anybody.” Ronnie claims he’s over Ben and they are just friends, but seems quite pleased to find out Bravo is selling “Bronnie” t-shirts on their website.
The next question is for Casey, about his fear of snakes. While he tries to answer, judge Niki Taylor sneaks up behind him with Lemon, the giant boa in question. Casey is brave, though, and wears the snake for the camera.
Andy has a question for the judges. “Tyson, who do you think has improved the most?” Tyson doesn’t hesitate to choose Ben, even though he admits that Perry is his favorite. Niki thinks Ronnie has evolved the most as a model.
The infamous Serenades show up in a series of clips. Perry, Ben, Ronnie, and Casey are embarrassingly bad singers, but they don’t seem to mind. “We have a hit album. It’s 45 tracks in under ten minutes,” Casey deadpans for the cameras. Niki’s still laughing about her birthday song.
The show rehashes the boy/girl divide in a series of clips. The girls think the guys are fake, mean, and hypocrites. The guys don’t know what they are talking about. Dom and Perry are voted as the biggest jerks, no surprise there.
The funniest part of the evening comes when the models start mocking each other’s catwalks. Even Niki and Tyson get in on the fun, making fun of Casey and Jacki. Finally, everyone’s getting along!
Talk turns to romance. Perry and Stephanie deny having a relationship, and Perry faces the inevitable clips and questions about his wayward girlfriend, Amanda Pagel. He’s pretty angry that she just hung up on him and wouldn’t talk about things. It turns out Perry’s not the only one with a fried relationship. Jay and Katie both broke up with their significant others after they returned from the show.
Jennifer Starr and Corey Bautista make an appearance, and so does Clay Burwell, the trainer. He thinks Ben is the most physically improved, and after that Elemental photoshoot, it’s hard to argue. The other, eliminated models are split on who they think should win the competition, Holly or Perry, but hardly any of them want to see Ben or Ronnie win. Tune in next Thursday to find out who will be made into a supermodel!
