In a real modeling situation, Brandon probably has it over Sandhurst and Jonathan because of his youth and his ethnicity (if it is hard for female models of color to make it big, imagine for men). However, in terms of this show, he shouldn't have won, or they should have edited this a little better. I hated particularly the whole "he has progressed" thing as one of the explanations for Brandon's win. Of course he has! He's eighteen and unformed, whereas the other two know who they are. They would progress too, but it is a slower curve for them (especially Jonathan). They should just bring a bunch of eighteen year olds next year (if there is a next year). That would make the show a lot more honest.
