Jodhi Meares Forced To Face Fears For Finale of Aust Next Top Model.
Jodhi who was acknowledged to have choked at last years live finale of Australia’s Next Top Model will now have to do it all over again. At the time Jodhi had said she would never do live TV again. Well clearly her bosses at Fox 8 had a different view.
This years live finale is to be bigger and better then last year. It will be in Luna Park with 2000 VIP guests.
The problem with Jodhi and live tv is that she very rarely adlibs and never goes off script which does not make good live TV.

American Idol Season 8 Viewers Give Their Ideas On How to Improve Idol.
Now it is time for the wash up of Idol after the fabulous finale where David Cook overcame the wholesome Archuleta. This year again there was a fall in ratings, however it does still make it the highest rating show on US TV.
Viewers have posted there opinions on how to improve the show for next season. Dicko would love one suggestion as one punter said they should give the judges of America’s Next Big Rock Band a go at the judging table.
However a very interesting and provocative suggestion is as follows:
My big recommendation is one that Idol will never take: Get rid of the phone-in votes and instead base the eliminations on overnight iTunes sales. Since Idol is supposed to be a talent competition to determine who has what it takes to be crowned a genuine pop star, this method would actually and legitimately prove which contestants have the ability to move some product.
This could have a completely different spin on the competition however the winner would be itunes as currently in the US you don’t have to pay to vote, but obviously would to download the song.
Full article here maybe Australian Idol may want to take up a few of the suggestions.
David Cook and Lacey fling appears to have petered out.
David Cook is doing what all good rock stars do, and makes sure he is taking the opportunity in partaking in the numerous women that are flinging themselves at him. Lacey Schwimmer from SYTYCD appears to be off the menu, but his predilection for reality tv chicks appears to continue with him confirming he has been on a date with American Idol Season 2 contestant Kimberley Caldwell.
Jordan Loukas inspired by Jodhi Meares.
Jordan Loukas who won fan favourite in last season Australia’s Next Top Model has decided to take inspiration from the shows host Jodhi Meares and start a swimsuit label.
Jordan who has had mixed success since the show clearly has decided a different career direction is needed. Her and another ANTM graduate Simmone Duckmanton will start their own swimwear label. The girls are apparently designing the pieces themselves, but now word if they have any financial backing or if it is just them. Good luck.

The Daily Terror today states taht Jordan Loukas has signed on with Mark Byrne Management to try her hand at acting.
Her modelling career has not taken off as hoped after the reality series Runway to LA that was screen last year on Fox 8. Loukas has now been bitten by the acting bug. She has already been to castings for a soap opera, a drama and a new series. Good Luck.
Jason Coleman to open a dance studio in Melbourne
Jason Coleman one of the judges on SYTYCD Australia, is planning to relocate from Sydney to Melbourne to open a dance studio. He plans to open it in May.
It should be a popular studio, as his profile has now sky rocketed into the mainstream since his gig on SYTYCD.
How dumb are you Denise lunch lady from Survivor China?
Denise the lunch lady who finished top 4 on Survivor China at the renunion had said that she had not been able to get her old job back, and Mark Burnett the Producer, gave her $50,000.
However there was more to the story then meets the eye, as apparently prior to her leaving she was given the janitor’s job which is a higher wage. Clearly she was not totally transparent about her situation, and obviously she was going to be found out. Click here for full story including the schools press release refuting her sob story.
Lesson if you are going to spin bullshit make sure it is not on a high rating tv show, as you will get caught out. Clearly she does “suck at life”.

After searching, searching, searching for the photos of the Jordan Loukas dress malfunction which had her tit fall out of her dress in last years Australia’s Next Top Model, I finally found it.
These shots were featured on the Parez Hilton website, and was mentioned again on the reality TV show which featured Jordan Loukas and Charlotte Dawson, Runway to LA.

The episode opens with Charlotte Dawson, life coach, telling Jordan Loukas that she was going to a second casting with Ed Hardy aka Christian Audiger.
This time the casting was to be in his shop.
Charlotte says” Do what ever he want you to do and give 100%” , and then “Really blow his mind” then she dumped her alone at the Ed Hardy store.
At this point I perked up thinking I was going to see some casting couch action in a town which is notorious for it. However that did not happen.
This is where Christian and his head stylist Ray pretend to be in deep conversation with the camera on them, Jordan walks in.
This is where I think this show needed a bit of cash for comment subtitle. Clearly the Producers have made a deal with Christian Audiger, be it money or publicity, so it is getting a bit boring that they are presenting this as a real modelling opportunity when it is obvious the whole thing has been set up for her.
The purpose of this casting wast to get the Audiger shop on TV. Yes it looked great. They did not even bother to get her to catwalk again. She was then sent outside while Christian and Ray conferred and came to their final decision. Which shock horror they were going to let Jordon to be in the LA Fashion Week show.
In line with their agreement and it must be a good one was that Jordan and Charlotte could take any clothes they wanted from the shop. That would have been cool, and they took stacks of stuff. I am sure no other model in his show was offered that.
Next Jordan does an Ashley Paige swimsuit shoot on Venice Beach surrounded by male models. Different props were standing on the top of a human pyramid, standing on a surfboard in high heels, and freezing her tits of in the water whilst groping spunky boy.
Then some of the shots are sent to Jordan’s hotel. As Charlotte peruses them Jordan remarks “Her face was expressionless”. That is because of all the botox Jordan.
However after pretending to hate them Charlotte gave them the 2 thumbs up.
Next it is time for the Ed Hardy show, and it was quite a spectacular, celebs like Brandy, and some midget rapper called Bow Wow, and even The Hoff.
Christian then announced that Jordan would open the show. A huge honour one that usually goes to the highest profile model. I presume this was another part of the contract between the producers and Ed Hardy.
Jordan looked great, but very nervous. I would have liked Miss Jay to critique her catwalk style.
Anyway now that is over, it was time to come home from LA, with Jordan promising she would be over there soon.
She did not outline when she would be going, and last I had read about her she had been cast in some bands music video.
Good Luck Jordan.

Runway to LA shows that Americans do reality TV better then Australians.
I know that reality TV is that you set situations up so you can then film what happens at them, however this show feels too set up. Well this particular episode did.
I think this episode could have been subtitled “The Ed Hardy Promo Episode”
This episode Charlotte Dawson, and Jordan Loukas were still in LA, and the first scene were the two of them exercising/running through a canyon. Charlotte whinged that Jordan was not showing any humour or personality whilst exercising. Who does? Jordan appeared in a Ed Hardy top.
Next Charlotte says that Jordon is going to attend a networking party with fashion people, models, and musos. Apparently they were Charlotte’s contacts. Well they turn up to the Roosevelt Hotel, and Charlotte then tells Jordon she will in fact be hosting the soiree, and will have to circulate. Charlotte will be watching on a monitor from a room.
The party was small with only 15 people, you wondered where they wrangled them from. Some probably did not even know why they were there.
I would have thought that prior to LA they may have tried to do some confidence building skills with Jordan, as it was quite embarrassing having to watch her make pretty poor small talk around the party.
You get the feeling if Paloma or any of those girls from America’s Next Top Model had been at that party they would have been working on it.
Some guy saved her with some chat about salsa dancing, then Charlotte rang her and called her to the room.
Jordon had a meltdown, when she got in the room, and said I cannot go out there again and kept on crying.
At first they were going to put an ear piece in Jordan’s ear so Charlotte could talk her through it. Then I think the producers took Charlotte aside and said you better go out there with her, as the ‘special guest’ had arrived.
It was none other the Christian Oderjai the designer/owner of Ed Hardy.
They are at the bar and Charlotte forces her to talk to him, finally it it agreed she go for a casting for his show next week.
This bit was obviously set up, and must be a part of the contract of the promotion of his clothes on the show.
Charlotte then takes her down to Sunset Boulevarde to practice catwalking. After that it was onto Hollywood Boulevarde to cat walk in a bikini, considering there are so many freaks in that area Jordan did not look out of place.
The people dressed up as super heroes kept on following her.
Next up was a visit to Perez Hilton, who apparently had writing about Jordan before when he was at a fashion parade in Australia and she had a wardrobe malfunction – boob fell out of dress. Unfortunately I could not find the article on his website.
Perez tells her she should thank him for the exposure, also if she wants to get along in this town she should expose her boobs and beaver.
Charlotte disagreed at this point. He also said “Develop a thick skin”, “Self-promote and be confident without being cocky”.
He did not tell her to get a high profile boyfriend, this always helps to get media space. Maybe she needs to date an Australian cricketer, as this has kept Lara Bingle mediocre career going.
It is time for the Ed Hardy posting, and she is arriving there with hairy armpits, and skanky nails.
Christian is there. As is Ryan the runway trainer, why are all runway trainers gay and male?
She is dressed in a cute little outfit with beret, however they are not impressed with her walk. You could tell the assistants were extremely underwhelmed as they thought she looked to young. I never thought that was a liability in modelling.
Then she was put in some lingerie, and told to walk really sexy. Again she did not blow them away. They were concerned about her nervousness and how that makes her go within herself. They were unsure whether to cast her.
Christian aka Ed Hardy was going to give her one more shot he invited her and Charlotte to an event tomorrow night, as he wanted to see how she went.
Again the Ed Hardy promotion was on when he picked them up from their hotel in his car. Then they went to the party and walked the red carpet. Jordan got to face the paps with Christian, and once in the party he made her do her cat walk which she did do much better. But it was still up in the air whether she would get to do the show. How promos for next week shows that she does do it.
