Last night saw the last ever episode of E4’s Dirty Sexy Things *sob* and left us wondering what we’ll do without our weekly glimpse in to the crazy world of modelling!

The episode kicked off with the usual silly – and brilliant – banter between the 8 featured models, with a farewell dinner at BB’s. There was lovely food, lots of alcohol and even more gaffa tape… hang on, what?

Yes, a playful scuffle ended with Jay mummified in almost an entire roll of gaffa tape by BB, who lept to the defence of his lady Charlotte. Poor Jay – although it did prove to be the only successful attempt at keeping him quiet!

With the final episode came the last shoot with photographer Perou, who for once allowed the models to wear some clothes – in the most glamorous shoot yet! Charlotte, Ocean, BB, Jay and the rest of the gang posed for a sexy group shot, dressed in sharp suits, beautiful dresses and naughty suspenders.

Of course, the fact that outfits had been provided wasn’t going to stop Jesse boy from getting his kit off one more time! The cheeky chappy stripped down to his birthday suit again, and streaked through the grounds of the posh manor house where the shoot was taking place. Unluckily for him, the boys decided to play a prank and stole his clothes – whoops!

Finally, it was time for Perou’s exhibition – a showcase of his favourite photos from the previous eight weeks. He warned the models that some of them were likely to be disappointed – and he wasn’t wrong!

While Charlotte – who Perou admitted was his ‘favourite’ – and Ocean Moon had two solo shots in the exhibition, Jay and Jesse boy were shocked to realise they featured only in the group shots.

Scandalized stares aside, Perou’s showcase was an amazing success – and it was clear just how far the eight beautiful people have come as models in such a short time.

BB in particular noticed the contrast between his original ‘dancer pose’ photo and his striking Iceland based shot. The same can’t be said for his mother though, who received an earful from BB when she simply said the photo was ‘nice’! ‘Can’t you think of a better word?!’ Screeched BB.

And so the episode drew to a close, with kind-of-couple Charlotte and BB saying a tearful goodbye at the airport, where BB was due to jet off to Australia. We have to admit, we struggled to control our emotions, and not just because we love a good romance. No, we just don’t know what we’re going to do without those Dirty Sexy Things!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 7: Sink or Swim

It was Charlotte’s birthday this week, and sort-of-boyfriend BB organized a special day for his sort-of-lady – taking her and the rest of the gang to a Burlesque workshop. Of course, what could say ‘Happy Birthday’ better than watching a group of your gorgeous mates strip off? Needless to say, Jesse – who whips his […]

It was Charlotte’s birthday this week, and sort-of-boyfriend BB organized a special day for his sort-of-lady – taking her and the rest of the gang to a Burlesque workshop.

Of course, what could say ‘Happy Birthday’ better than watching a group of your gorgeous mates strip off? Needless to say, Jesse – who whips his clothes off at any opportunity- had a brilliant time, and his general state of nakedness continued for most of the episode.

Yep, ‘I want to be pushed as a photographer’ Perou revealed that this week’s big shoot would take place in the nude. As if that weren’t enough to deal with – particularly for Jay, who has body issues – the models were also told they would be photographed while TIED to the bottom of a deep swimming pool.

Now, we admit that we normally have a bit of a giggle at the model strops and diva behaviour on the show, but this was one challenge that had even us feeling a bit nervous – and we weren’t the ones relying on two scuba divers with an airtank to breathe!

Despite the difficult conditions, both Jay and Charlotte managed to nail Perou’s ‘ethereal mermaid’ brief, but Rob, BB and Jesse all struggled.  BB in particular had a particularly panicked look in all his photos – although we can’t say we blame him, we’d have run a mile when the words ‘very deep water’ and ‘tied to the bottom’ were used in the same sentence!

In other news, Jesse got turned down for a presenting job with T4 and preformed with his band for the cameras ( is there any career path the posh lad hasn’t turned his hand to?) Rob decided not to move to Milan (what an anti-climax) and Jessye B… well she didn’t really do much of anything in this episode! As for where Ocean Moon’s disappeared to… well that’s anyone’s guess.

Lastly, quote of the week has to go to Charlotte, who said Jesse looked like a ‘Chicken in a battery cage’ while attempting the sultry art of burlesque! Nice!

What did you think of episode 7? We just can’t get enough of those dirty, sexy things!

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 3: It’s Like Hanging Out With Your Mate’s Troubled Little Brother!

Ok, I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this program this week!  Why do i seem to get sucked into all these shows eventually?  Oh well, this week was less of a borefest than last week, maybe because they all seemed less forced and less scripted! I definitely have my favourites or should I […]

Ok, I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this program this week!  Why do i seem to get sucked into all these shows eventually?  Oh well, this week was less of a borefest than last week, maybe because they all seemed less forced and less scripted!

I definitely have my favourites or should I say I know who is definitely not my favourite!  Yeah I mean you ‘Lord’ Rob!  Why does he talk about his girlfriend so much?  He tells us about her in every single episode but it’s the same kind of stuff that he tells us every time too.  Boring!  Frankly I don’t care and why is there any need to share this pointless information, we get that you have a girlfriend ok?!  I am surprised he has any room in his life for anything other than his massive ego.  I find myself gravitating towards the mute button whilst he is on my screen! (Sorry, rant over!)

Anyway, some of the boys headed to Milan to try and book some work and BB headed to Paris for a photo shoot from his new Paris agency.    Shock horror Jay got really drunk and didn’t manage to get signed to an agency.  Jesse wasn’t impressed with his company in Milan saying that Jay is like someone’s troubled younger brother and Rob is like an embarrassing Dad.  I actually kind of agree.

This week’s photo shoot is an action shoot that will involve them having paint thrown on them at the same time.  Jay is told he seems too tired to take part in the shoot so is back to his angry self and Ariella refuses to wear the leotard she is given.  Ocean has to face the same hairdresser that she had a fight with the week before who seem relentlessly petty so it’s good to see her stand up to him.

If this show is going to get better and better, I look forward to seeing it next week.  The weird world of modelling and the random bunch of models in the show are becoming more appealing.  Is it actually getting better or is it just that it’s been a while since we watched any decent reality type TV?  Hmm, I’m not sure…!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 2: What’s Missing?

Dirty Sexy Things is back on our screens again for the second time to give us an insight into the world of modelling.  This week some of the models are off to Paris so it should be interesting!  ‘Should be’ being the key word there. I don’t understand the concept of the show.  It’s as […]

Dirty Sexy Things is back on our screens again for the second time to give us an insight into the world of modelling.  This week some of the models are off to Paris so it should be interesting!  ‘Should be’ being the key word there.

I don’t understand the concept of the show.  It’s as if it is missing the normal part of a public vote off or some sort of commentary.  For years we have watched shows like America’s Next Top Model, Britain’s Next Top Model and Project Runway that have involved the world of modelling and fashion so it’s not like we just don’t like the subject matter!  There just seems to be something missing!

Yes the aim of the show is to expose the reality behind the so-called glamorous industry but it is quite simply a bit dull.  Woop-dee-doo it is real life, but sorry that’s not really what we want from a TV show like this.  Surely they have realised by now that the reality show/docu-soap/real-fake show concept works when there are some crazy characters and a world or lifestyle that most of us can only imagine (good or bad!)  Take Made In Chelsea for example.  Why do people watch it?  Purely to see what a rich London lifestyle is like with some crazy (but brilliant) posh characters.  Or look at Geordie Shore.  Completely the opposite from the M.I.D lot but equally as watchable to see a lifestyle so very different from our own.

So what do we get from Dirty Sexy Things?  Yes they are models, but they aren’t offering us anything spectacular.  Half the time we are basically watching people go to job interviews as that’s what castings are really.  Then there is what seems a half-hearted effort to include the usual drunken antics, flirting and individually filmed segments in which they make horrible, catty remarks about their co-stars.  (We use the word ‘stars’ loosely!)  Overall though, not a patch on its predecessors!

Dirty – no.  Sexy – no. Things – yeah, ok but that’s about it really!

Blueghhhh:

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!!!
