Dirty Sexy Things Episode 6: Feeling At One With Nature!

Eughh so much of this episode is about “Lord Rob” and you guessed it… his girlfriend Anastasia!  Ok so they didn’t seem so bad this time.  In fact they seemed rather normal in this episode!  It is quite amusing to watch them try and cope in Milan when they don’t speak a word or Italian […]

Eughh so much of this episode is about “Lord Rob” and you guessed it… his girlfriend Anastasia!  Ok so they didn’t seem so bad this time.  In fact they seemed rather normal in this episode!  It is quite amusing to watch them try and cope in Milan when they don’t speak a word or Italian and assumed that everyone would speak English.

Anastasia discovers that curvy glamour modelling doesn’t translate into Italian, and Rob’s tentative grasp of the lingo doesn’t help.  And no Rob, saying English words in a fake Italian accent does not mean that you are picking up the lingo!  Oh and really who goes to get a spray tan in white skinny jeans??  Crazy idea!

BB is also in Milan trying to get signed to an agency there.  After being knocked back by Elite models, because of his skin colour to say he is discouraged doesn’t quite cover it.  He is ecstatic to then be signed by huge agency Why Not.

Jay gets drunk for his 21st birthday unsurprisingly.  Why would we expect anything else from him really?  Would he actually make it onto set this time was the real question.  For his sixth shoot Perou takes Jesse, Ocean and Jay back to nature. He wants them to get into character as feral creatures. This is really Jay’s final chance to prove himself to Perou.

Perou wants them to be stripped back, feel at one with nature and feel part of their environment.  At what point does that mean you have to skin a rabbit and eat it before heading into hair and make-up?  Very strange.   The photo shoot looks something like Alice in Wonderland meets Edward Scissor hands but this week just as interesting without characters like BB and Charlotte!  Bring back our faves next week please!!!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 5: Fur Coats No Knickers!

It’s that time of week again when we are flung into the modelling industry with photographer Perou and his 8 chosen models.  This week Perou’s chosen four models BB, Jesse, Charlotte and Ariella were taken to the very beautiful Iceland.  Not only were they taking part in Perou’s weekly photo shoot but they were also […]

It’s that time of week again when we are flung into the modelling industry with photographer Perou and his 8 chosen models.  This week Perou’s chosen four models BB, Jesse, Charlotte and Ariella were taken to the very beautiful Iceland.  Not only were they taking part in Perou’s weekly photo shoot but they were also walking the runway at Reykjavik fashion week wearing some crazy Icelandic designs.

Thankfully there was no sign of “Lord Rob” and there was no sign of drunken antics from Jay, but an unfortunate image of him receiving colonic therapy.  He was off detoxing with his mum after his embarrassing drunken antics and his bad attitude.  Glad to hear this, hopefully he will be less annoying now!  The lucky four that went to Iceland were sent off to an amazing looking hot spring spa type thing which was ruined a bit by Ariella’s annoying and childish behaviour.  She is right up there in the annoying stakes with Rob!

Now after last week, you would have thought that they would have had enough of fish!  Yet this week they head to a top fish restaurant and it definitely isn’t for the faint hearted.  It wasn’t your usual fish dishes though as they were served smoked eel, shark and whale fat.  Oh and how could we forget the special Icelandic dish that consisted of rotten fish?  It made me feel queasy just watching them serve it up never mind the thought of actually eating it.

Anyway, this week’s photo shoot with Perou was described by him as “fur coats no knickers.”  Now with prim and proper Ariella meant to be taking part in the shoot who has previously refused to wear a leotard because she thought it was too skimpy, is it practical to think she will take part in something described as fur coats, no knickers?  They were all painted black like the volcanic sands of Iceland and draped in fake fur.

Surprisingly Ariella does actually take part although is clearly not too happy about it and shows insecurities that you don’t expect models to have.  She turned up but didn’t impress!  Oh well, I have to admit I’m quite happy when Perou says he never wants to see Ariella at a photo shoot again.  Till next week then my friends…!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 4: They Chucked A Dead Rotten Octopus On My Head!

Dirty Sexy Things is back on again and surprise surprise Jay is yet again drunk!  The majority of this week’s offering of Dirty Sexy Things included some castings, Jay making an idiot of himself (again) and a dead octopus.  I haven’t written that wrong or gone mad; there was actually a dead octopus on the […]

Dirty Sexy Things is back on again and surprise surprise Jay is yet again drunk!  The majority of this week’s offering of Dirty Sexy Things included some castings, Jay making an idiot of himself (again) and a dead octopus.  I haven’t written that wrong or gone mad; there was actually a dead octopus on the show.

The casting that two of the girls attended really lived up to the harsh nature we do assume the fashion industry has.  The people who were casting were openly talking about Charlotte in front of her so it is no wonder she didn’t look that interested really.  I wouldn’t look interested either if someone was slating me and I could hear them.  The people at the casting call really did nothing to improve the perception that people have of those involved in the fashion industry as they seemed rude and arrogant.

Jesse had an audition for a presenting role at T4.  He told a rep at his modelling agency that that was the route he wanted to head down but even I could see that he looked quite uncomfortable during the audition.  Someone had given feedback at the time saying he was quite good but it sounded like there was a massive “but…” lingering in the air that he just didn’t want to say.

The majority of the episode focused on the four models that were chosen for this week’s big photo shoot that was held in the town of Whitstable: Charlotte, Jessye B, Jay and Jesse.  It is clear that Jay and Jessye B do not get on at all and after a night of Jay drinking too much again and embarrassing himself he went home before the shoot had even taken place the next day.

Charlotte had clearly shown her hatred of fish so wasn’t too pleased to find out the whole concept of the photo shoot revolved around fish and the sea.  However, she was very professional and didn’t let it affect her one bit.  Jessye B had the unfortunate task of posing with a dead, cold, rotten octopus on her head but also didn’t let it get to her.  I definitely couldn’t have done it myself, yuck!

It will be interesting to see how Jay behaves next week but frankly I am bored of him and his stupid, childish behaviour.  I can’t imagine many people wanting to work with him if they recognise him from the show!  Oh well, only time will tell!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 1: £200 A Month On Underwear?!

Now that Made In Chelsea and Geordie Shore have left our screens I was rather excited to see that a new show was headed our way.  Dirty Sexy Things follows leading fashion photographer Perou and 8 models as they create a collection of photographs for an exhibition.  The show lets us see what the modelling world is really like and what it is like to live in it.

I don’t know if it was just because it was the first episode but I thought it was a bit of a weird show.  I was waiting for something spectacular to happen and it sadly never did.  As it was the first one they were introducing all the characters: Jesse, BB, Jay, Rob, Ocean, Ariella, Charlotte and Jessye B.  Yes, that’s right someone with the name Ocean!  So the models are introduced to us all and I already have my favourites!  (Charlotte, Jessye B and Jay!)

The others don’t come across very well.  Rob the beefcake seems rather arrogant and we find out that he spends £200 a month on new underwear.  Who on earth needs that many?  What is he doing with them?  Very strange.  Then there is BB which stands for Black Beauty who is trying to juggle careers in both modelling and dancing.  He moans most of the time he is on our screens about having to travel and get up early so he can dance for Alexandra Burke as well as do his modelling.  Sorry but I have no sympathy for you.  If you don’t like it, don’t do it!  Simple as that!

The photo shoot they have to take part in this week is a lingerie shoot outside on the streets of London.  As they run around in their teeny tiny pants, Perou is there in his sunglasses shouting and taking photos and then they all hop back on to their bus almost as if it was a school trip. (But with less clothes!)

I will be intrigued to watch the next episode as I don’t really know what to think after the first one.  I neither hated it nor loved it; it was just a bit bland.  It definitely has potential though so bring on the next episode in which they visit Paris!  Lucky things!!!
