As a model, you're not setting our world on fire right now. And you need to do be able to do that as a model. Jacki. You let us down this week. I expected a lot more from you and I expected you to be a lot more professional. Dominic. Your attitude. I don't know man. And your performance is stiff, man. You're as stiff as your surf boards, bro.

        Tyson: A lot of times when you were coming down, I kept seeing prison guard. I got locked up for misc. what ever it is. But you remind me of the guard coming down to tell me, "You've been bailed." Less prison guard and more Ben.
