Why he will win?
Johnny believes he will win because he has a strong creative flow, great sense of color and originality.
Timspeak: “Johnny acts like an asshole to get more camera time.“
Is it us, or was that a really strange audition? His audition pieces weren’t all that great. He showed two very similar jackets and one unfinished skirt. The judges had some polite things to say, but they didn’t seem particularly impressed with him. Gosh, you don’t think they cast him for his personality, do you? Perish the thought!
Before you accuse us of writing him off completely, we just would like to point out that his portfolio:
…is pretty damn impressive. There are some very nice, and more importantly, very interesting pieces there. He’s talented. Let’s hope he doesn’t make the mistake of thinking he needs to be an asshole to make it to the end.
You can, of course, find out a lot more about Johnny by visiting his page on myLifetime.com.
