Episode 9: Brand Ambassador

Last week on Make Me A Supermodel, Ben DiChiara, Casey Skinner and Frankie Godoy up for the vote. This is the first all-male bottom three.

The verdict comes and Frankie is going home. The battle of the sexes is on.

It's Niki Taylor's birthday and Tyson Beckford tells the group they'll be throwing a party with many luminaries from the fashion industry attending. They guys write a birthday song and the girls back a red velvet cake.

At the club, Tyson leads a blindfolded Niki in where she is presented with the girl's cake and the boy's song.

This week the models learn it's all about branding and selling a product. They must model on film by director Manu Boyer.

The first scene will portrayed people in a big fight. He picks Perry Ullmann, Holly Kiser and hometown favorite Ronnie Kroell.

The next scene has Casey acting as fashion photographer with Shannon as the model. Casey struggles and Manu swaps him out for Perry. Casey feels really bad.

The final scene is a late night scene between two lovers. First Manu selected Casey and Holly, but then swaps Casey for Ben. Wait! It gets better. Then he swaps Holly for Ronnie! It was now a late night scene between Ben and Ronnie - foreshadowing? In the words of CP's Bill Pritchard, it was 'comedy.' Manu finally goes with Ben and Holly.

The next morning, the models are taken to Bloomingdale's where they will be brand ambassadors. They get a crash course from Stephanie Solomon the fashion director of Bloomingdale's. Each model gets dressed up and is instructed to go out and sell their outfits - except Ben because Stephanie thinks he is too stiff to be good at the job. In the end, Stephanie's favorites are Casey and Shannon.

For the runway show, the models must "live the brand."

The judges tease Ronnie about his first walk that made him look like an English butler. They were also disappointed with Ben's sad-sack attitude.

The models return for this week's decision. Shannon and Holly are in the top two, with Holly as this week's winner. Casey, Ben and Ronnie are in the bottom three. Perry is safe. This will be the first week Ronnie and his brofriend Ben will be competing in the vote.

"I feel that I was wronged this week by being in the bottom three," writes Ronnie is his BravoTV.com blog. "I respect panels decision but I believe it was based on misfortune and conflicting interpretations of third party feed back. Right now the girls pose the biggest threat and I'm not sure why."

Back at the house, Perry gets a very cryptic call from his girlfriend Amanda, warning him about a story about her that was reported in the National Enquirer. (Click here to read more about the phone call - includes video)

The vote is on and hopefully America selects our hometown favorite Ronnie. He continues to prove he has what it takes to be a Supermodel.

Best guess... Ronnie will soon be sleeping alone as Ben is unfortunately voted off next week.
