Episode 10: New Orleans

Last week on Make Me a Supermodel, our hometown favorite Ronnie Kroell joined his mancrush Ben DiChiara and Casey Skinner in the bottom three.

Completely unbiased, Ronnie is the most talented model of the three. Casey and Ben both lack confidence and have mediocre performances.

Casey is voted off, Ronnie and Ben are safe. Cory Bautista tells Ben he should have been the one voted off the show.

The models head off to New Orleans for an important photo shoot. Ben is excited to be going back to his hometown.

Before heading to the Big Easy, Tyson Beckford pulls Perry Ullman aside to show him the cover of National Enquirer with the story that his girlfriend Amanda "spent time" with Adnan Ghalib, Britney Spears' ex. Perry vows not to let Amanda or the story get to him.

The models arrive in New Orleans and spend the night in a nice hotel in the French Quarter.

The next morning, time for the photo shoot in a cemetery with the models dressing in Goth costumes and makeup.

Ronnie is paired together with Shannon and both seemed to struggle. I loved when Dennis, the crow, crapped on Ben's shoulder.

The next day the models arrive at a Habitat for Humanity site to help build a new home for Cherrie who lost her house in Hurricane Katrina.

"This week my heart was warmed by the Habitat for Humanity and the opportunity to assist Cherrie," writes Ronnie in his BravoTV.com blog.

The runway is a dark and dramatic show choreographed by the models. Ben gets praise for his performance while Shannon gets beat-up for her lifeless photo shoot this week. When the judges ask Ronnie for his opinion of Shannon and he admits to having a hard time working with her, she gets upset and calls Ronnie a "kiss-ass" to the judges.

After the judges deliberate, Ben and Holly are in the top, Holly is the winner. Only two models are up for vote -- Ronnie and Shannon. Perry is safe.

"Ronnie and Shannon were in the bottom two and I’m not worried for Ronnie because I feel as though he is a better model than Shannon," write Ben in his blog. "I hope that America sees that as well."

"My work is far from over and I have more to learn but yet again I find my self in the bottom two, and turn to America for support," writes Ronnie.
