From TiVo.com:

Male and female models are paired up to see who has the most chemistry; the models work together to sizzle for the camera and on the catwalk.

Man Ronnie and Shannon sizzled. I did not know that Shannon had it in her.

I am so glad Katy improved this week.

Could the editors make it any more obvious that they want Aryn to go home? Though she and Jay had no chemistry, they don't despise each other like Holly and Frankie, and she still managed the best picture of the four in danger. I'll comment more later, but I'm rather disgusted by this episode.

Wow. That was the raciest hour of television I've ever seen!

Dude, Perry is the man. I loved his line, "So, did you see the game last night?" before the photoshoot.

Casey impressed, Ronnie impressed (are you straight yet? Almost.), Stephanie impressed, Shannon impressed.

Frankie is a major douche. HUGE douche. I sorta feel bad for Holly. At least she took responsibility unlike Dominic would. Dominic kept whining right out the door. Ug.

What was up with Ben and Katy and Jackie and Stephanie disappearing from the runway at judging?

Ben is starting to worry me. In the first 10 minutes, he lets Ronnie rip off his shirt, rub his chest, kiss his neck, etc. He was getting really close to Aryn too. He does have a wife. He sorta cheating both ways. Thank GOD they didn't pair Ben and Ronnie. That would have been horribly unfair to the both of them, IMO.

Make me a supermodel or make me a porn star. Give me a break. This show was dying before it even began. Even the creators knew so they threw the tasteless in as early as the third episode. Gah!

Oh mah goodness! Up until the fade out Dominic was still complaining. He bitched that his coach gave him bad advice. He bitched about the shoes being small. He bitched about the spurs...again. Aaaand, he referred to himself in the third person. This does not make fashionista79 happy.

I'm glad that Perry kicked ass during that photo shoot. Plus, Shannon and Ronnie rocked it out! And Frankie's safe. I'm upset, though, that Holly is in the bottom three. I may have to vote now.

Shallow moment: Loved Perry in the fedora and the glasses when the group was in the living room talking about Dominic.

- I thought both of the same sex couples were the best. I did like Ronni and Shannon but I didn't think they did better than Jacki and Steph. I really thought the 4 people that had to make that jump did a fantastic job with it.
- Ronnie is setting himself up for some heartache with Ben. It's very clear that Ben is being flirty/exploratory and that Ronnie is serious. That's a recipe for disaster.
- I knew Holly was going to crash and burn. I could see it on her face that she was not going to be able to handle the sexual aspect. She had better get over that fast if she manages to stick around.
- Jay needs to be gone like now. He's really awful and I don't even know why he made it. He's just blank and not attractive at all.
- Frankie is a major ass. I detest the guy I don't care how good he looks, what a snot.

My favorites are still: Ronnie, Jacki, Perry and now i'm starting to notice Stephanie and Casey. Shannon is noticeable but she just looks odd to me, I don't find her attractive but most models are odd looking as well. At least the show is getting more exciting, clearly that peacefulness was just caused by them settling into things.

This show has become my favorite model competition show; its an adult show. I'm loving it. Ben and Ronnie make me smile, when they were playing around they looked so hot together. I hope they aren't playing each other.

Perry and Casey were hot in their photo shoot; I don't know any straight guy who would have been willing to partner with another guy let alone go that far. But I wished it was Ben and Ronnie that had to partner up.

I felt kinda bad for Holly, she seemed to be having a hard time. Shut up Frankie! Everytime he opens his mouth, his cuteness factor drops 5 points.

I felt that way for a moment myself, but then decided that it would have been really sadistic and tasteless to make them do that -- because it would mean so much more to one of them than the other, and be a recipe for personal disaster. Ronnie is kidding himself a bit as it is.

At 19, I can fully appreciate all of these guys because they're all around my age. I breathed so much easier when Frankie was declared safe, because though his personality is beginning to grate a lot, he's so nice to look at. Casey is even better because he's incredibly good looking AND seems like a genuinely nice guy.

This challenge was very risque, but it's something that I've seen in a lot of magazines. They're right--sex does sell, so someone like Holly better get used to photoshoots like this because she is the only one that I looked at and thought immediately, "She's going to have huge problems with this."

Wow was this sleazy or what? This was heading into Terry Richardsonville. The ho yay was just so OTT. Casey really DID look like Perry's bitch! Anyway, Jay needs to go NOW like yesterday, but that girl he worked w/ needs to go soon too....she looked scared! I couldn't believe Holly, just couldn't. Hasn't she seen these shows before? Picked up a fashion mag other than Vogue? Sadly for her, those kinds of shoots aren't all that rare in high fashion. Tho I hate to say it, I think Frankie was right about her being a bit drunk. She just looked so dead in the eyes and/or scared. That's a really bad sign if it's true...if she wants to be in fashion and has to get loaded before going on a job at this early stage, she'd be better off losing and going home now. Too many of fashion's addicts have become that way just like this. Aryn kinda scared me when she was working out. She looked really bad there for a sec.

I must say that I'm sick and tired of straight men being rewarded for "playing gay", but rarely the opposite. Is it any easer for a gay guy to play straight? I don;t know, but I doubt it. Ronnie, IMHO, should have won over Perry even tho Perry was great. Ronnie really did look like he was turned on and into her.

One thing this show proved is that sexuality is far more complex that just gay, straight, bi. LOL...many of these kids are learning stuff about themselves and other people they never suspected/expected. Apparently this is true for the viewers too.

Dominic kept whining right out the door.


I know! "Maybe if they gave me some shoes that fit..." Man up, princess!

I hated Katie's new red hair last week, but at the beginning of this episode when it was wavy and looked a little wet, I thought it looked great.

Aryn almost passing out during exercise was a little disturbing. I'm surprised they didn't get someone to blame it on her not eating. Speaking of, why didn't we get a weigh in this week?

Frankie gets less pretty each week as we get to know him better. Perry, on the other hand, becomes more awesome.

I can't believe I'm the same age as some of them on here! Being 19, and thinking that I could probably never do this is fascinating.

I don't like Frankie. Still. I never liked his "look at me!" personality, and I find him truly, truly unattractive.

Sad Holly and Aryn are in the bottom three. D: I love the two of them, but I felt it was necessary to throw my votes Aryn's way. I know Holly will get enough--she just has to. Right? God, I hope so.
Plus, Jay continues to bore. Tremendously. Go away!

Stephanie is still my favorite. No more can be said. She's beautiful and so comfortable with everything! Plus, I think she's the most well-rounded, and I don't understand how she never gets called back to the judging. Weird. Hopefully she'll register with them soon. And not be in the bottom. :/

Jackie still annoys me.

Perry and Casey were HOT. I got all bothered watching. Casey was apart of my favorites based on looks alone, but now I feel like it's justified!

Ben is still beautiful. As is Ronnie. <3 LOVE. THEM.

So glad Dom is gone.

Anyone I didn't mention just doesn't matter to me really.

Wow, this show was hot. Loved it. Loved the same sex couples and gay or not, Ronnie rocks my world.

I never noticed it previously but in this episode when Holly would give her little camera speeches, she seemed to say "like" every other word. Fair or not, it's not an attractive trait to me and makes me like her a little less.

And way to go Katy getting out of the bottom three.

Favorite line: When Ronny said to Ben - "how hard do you want it"

I did feel badly for Holly even if I do think she deserved her bottom 3 spot. I think she would have done better with just about any other partner. I think she might have done best with Stephanie. Stephanie was so in control that they could have played the innocent/dominatrix angle pretty well. frankie is just soooo skeevy and weird it would be hard I think for anyone to get a genuine connection with him.

I'd have put frankie in the bottom three instead of Aryn just because Aryn got some attractive shots of herself even if she couldn't connect with Jay.

Everyone else I loved this week, including, surprisingly, Jackie. I finally saw the spark on the runway the judges have been talking about and while Stephanie was better in the shoot, Jackie did good work. Those two were for me the hottest pairing.

Shannon is really surprising me, too. She might overtake Holly as my fave if she keeps it up.

The beginning of this episode made me dislike Dom more and love Ben a lot more. Frankie just got question marks from me. And was it just me, or did some people still have some residual makeup on at the top of the show?

Dom is interesting in that is has no attitude on-camera and way too much off-camera. He needed it the other way around. He didnít understand that and thatís why HE IS OUTTA HERE!!! He doesnít need just a slice of humble pie, he needs to down the whole damn pastry.

Itís hilarious that the girls got the Frankie as Fabio thing. And where is he from? I can hear an accent, but I canít place it (maybe itís partially from his parents or whatever).

Cocktails, that was just funny.

Thank GOD they didn't pair Ben and Ronnie.

It would have been way too obvious if they had. I actually would have looked down on that (though the pair are hilarious ďtogetherĒ).


So whatever I said before about Ronnie and Ben not pushing anything, I completely take that back. Oh and Ben, PLEASE WORK ON THAT WALK!!!

Perry and Casey, thatís just good television. Good job guys.

Whatís with them using the phone? Are they only allowed a certain number of calls or what?

This episode had some really awesome lines.

Ronnie and Ben are super cute, but that phone call with his wife was really sad. Someone is going to get his/her heart broken if this continues. Do the models get to watch the episodes? At the very least, their families can watch and then discuss it on the phone, so they must know which footage is being aired.

I second the hate for giving straight guys brownie points just for playing gay. While straight girls who play lesbian get leered at hopefully. Tyson, you're a sexist, homophobic ass.

Frankie is easily the worst looking guy IMO, aside from his grating personality. I have no idea what everyone else sees in him.

I was beginning to wonder why Jay wasn't shown as much in the episodes as other models, but now I see. He is dull as rocks. His look is dull. His personality is dull. Even his voice is dull. Can we please retire the phrase " Once you go black, you never go back" Please. Pretty please? Goodbye. (Nice smile though. Dull, but nice).

Perry is my new favorite BFF. Dude is hilarious. I loved his line to the camera after his gay porn photo shoot that went something like "I'm so glad that went well, my gilrfriend will see the shots and I don't have to do the whole, explain this to my girl thing. (deadpan face) She'll just think I'm gay." I thoght he was cocky at first, but now he is just a hoot to watch. And very easy on the eyes. I hope he stays around.

Ben's walk is bad, really bad, like his shoulders are too far out there. He is not one of my fav's.

As for the girls, I see Jackie is getting the "pretty girl resting on pretty and not pushing through" edit. She will be gone soon.
Holly is getting the " Beautiful girl, great model, can't handle the business edit" She will be a Shocking! elimination ( meaning she will be eliminated on a week where even Stevie Wonder can see she did fabulously) just to stir things up.
I'm not sure what kind of edit Katy is getting, but her thighs are distracting me. They are just wobbly.

Oh yeah. Frankie is Fabio 2.0.

All in all, I agree with early sentiments that this is a guys contest to win ( although I do wonder if guys and girls will continue to alternate eliminations- first there was a girl, second was a guy, so third wil be a girl??) hmmm....

Wow, Dominic is the mayor of Excuse City. No dignity on that exit. What a bitch. And Jay is so out of there. I can't even see his own family voting for him, he's so boring. And he seems so oblivious to it. As for Frankie, the girls got his number with the impressions. That face he does to look sexy makes him look more constipated or like he's smelling something bad. Maybe he's smelling his hair. It always looks like it stinks and is dirty looking. I know a lot of people like Holly, but she looks so much like this prude I work with, I can't get past it. I wouldn't mind if she left.

Wow, I feel like such a cougar watching this show.

Dom is such a tool. He will not be missed.

Perry and Casey are hot together. I was a little worried (I really like Casey and I want to ogle him as many weeks as possible) but they really rocked that out. Great, playful chemistry between guys is really hot.

As cheesey as Ronnie struck me originally, he does seem like a really nice guy. Ben's going to break his heart, though. To Ben, this is like a chance to experiment without really needing to commit since he might only be there a few weeks. I wonder what his wife will think, though...she seems insecure.

What is the deal with Frankie and the gameplay? Shut up, Frankie. Shut up forever. I did like how the girls were making fun of his hair flip faces.

I agree, and I have a feeling it's going to be Ronnie. Ben seems like a nice guy, but I think he's using Ronnie (subconsciously or not) and getting off on the fact that he likes him and the attention. He should stop what's going on between them right now if he's really his friend. Anyways, I also thought the same sex couples were the best, closely followed by Ronnie and his partner.

I think Perry/Casey weren't comended so much for playing gay (per se) but rather for defying expectations, as were Jackie/Stephanie and Ronnie/Shannon (I think it was her).

Edited because I'm not a good proof-reader...apparently

I like Ronnie a lot and I kind of think this is his competition to lose but I thought confessing to the camera that Ben told him that if he had a couple of drinks in him, something might happen (or words to that effect) was in really poor taste on his part. If Ben didn't say that on camera, he shouldn't have, in my opinion.

It's entirely possible that his wife knows that and would be fine with it. I can also picture his wife going "holy sh**!" I just think that because this show is filmed in real time, everybody should be more aware of what they do/say on camera.

I don't think Jacki has to worry anytime soon. Of the girls only her, Stephanie and Shannon have any chance at all to win this. They are the ones that stick out and coincidence or not they are the three that were together in the room so maybe they gravitate to each other. If any of those three girls go it's totally a male dominated competition. They won't want it to lean to far either way just so soon so those three imo have absolutely nothing to worry about.

I can't really feel too badly for Ronnie at least as far as Ben's treatment of him is concerned. He knows Ben is married. If he's sincerely going after a married guy I can't feel too much pity for him, especially when he knows Ben's wife is watching. And I agree his confessional was in poor taste.

I think it's difficult to have a crush on a person you can't have and to that extent I feel for him. But I don't think Ben is using him or tricking him when Ronnie knows the situation.

I think Holly did deserve to be in the bottom 3 (and I'm totally voting for her), but wow. Aryn was robbed. She's in the bottom 3 instead of Frankie? Whatever, MMAS.

Word to whoever upthread said that they had no idea what people saw in Frankie. If you can finagle chemistry with a douche of his magnitude, you have no business being a supermodel - you need to be in movies and writing your Academy Awards acceptance speech. God, that guy is a toolbox.

Meanwhile in Ben/Ronnie-land, I've never been so turned on and disturbed at the same time. Last episode, the crush was cute. This episode, when the two of them and Aryn (was it?) were reenacting Threesome on the bed, I had to cover my dog's eyes. It's crossed the line between hot and creepy, y'all.

"Equestrian with a fetish twist"? No, no, MMAS, you're not trying too hard at all. That was totally subtle and tasteful.
