It's finale time folks! From the initial sweet 16, only three remain: Branden, Jonathan, and Sandhurst. While the girls dominated the season early on, it was the men of Make Me A Supermodel
who had the staying power to make it to the finale.
While 2/3rds of the final three are no surprise--we've been calling a Jonathan versus Sandhurst finale for weeks and weeks now--we have to admit we're still a bit shocked that the baby of the house, Branden, has lasted all the way to the finale. We're also surprised that Jonathan isn't strutting into this finale the clear winner. Three episodes or so ago, we would've said, just hand Jonathan the contract. But Sandhurst has come on strong in the last few weeks, with a string of winning performances. It should doubtlessly come down to Jonathan or Sandhurst for the win, but who of those two would walk away the winner, all rides on their performance tonight.
The final three are feeling giddy about making it to the end of the competition. Branden can't believe he's made it all the way to the finale, and truthfully we can't either. Sandhurst and Jonathan, on the other hand, came to Make Me A Supermodel
to win, and can seemingly both taste victory. It's too bad that there can't be two winners this season, as both Jonathan and Sandhurst have proven they have what it takes to succeed in the industry. Plus, it's going to be heart wrenching to see either of them lose.
During the finale, the boys will be participating in two major photo shoots and one catwalk challenge. But it's not all work for Branden, Jonathan, and Sandhurst. The three finalists are invited to attend a SoHo art gallery, with a beloved family member accompanying them. If you do not tear up when Branden sees his Mom or Jonathan is reunited with his wife and adorable son Jude, check to make sure your heart is still beating!! Seriously guys, have your tissues ready for when Branden's Mamma walks through that door! And if you don't...well don't say I didn't warn you!
After their final Catwalk Challenge, it's time for one last grilling from the judges. Things get emotional when Catharine Malandrino asks Branden if it was difficult growing up without a father. Hope you still have your tissues at hand from that last video, because this one is another tear jerker! When Branden breaks down in tears lauding the wonderfulness that is his Mother, he is comforted by the new male role models in his life: Jonathan and Sandhurst. This is one time when you won't hear me, or any of the judges critiquing, "There's no crying on the catwalk!" By the looks of thing, even Perou seems a bit more misty eyed after Branden's break down.
And there you have it, a sneak peek at tonight's Make Me A Supermodel
finale. By the looks of it, it's not only going to be a tearjerker, but also an incredibly close competition. Who do you think will leave Make Me A Supermodel
a winner? I'll be interviewing all three finalists tomorrow, so be sure to submit your questions for Branden, Jonathan, or Sandhurst over at BuddyTV's Twitter .
