By Reality TV World staff, 06/04/2009
Branden Rickman, an 18-year-old from Lake Tahoe, NV who currently resides in Central Point, OR, was crowned Make Me a Supermodel's second season winner during Wednesday night's broadcast of the Bravo reality competition's finale.
"I won, oh my god! I'm so excited to start my career as a supermodel," Branden added later. "I'm a freaking supermodel! Oh my god, that's insane. I never would have thought I would have been here. I never would have thought."
"A couple of months ago I was in the bottom two being called a cocky kid and I made it all the way here and I won this. And I think the reason for that is I found the real Branden and I just whooped ass. I got the book, I got the $100,000. Ladies, I'm here."
As Make Me a Supermodel's second-season champion, Branden won $100,000, a modeling contract with New York Model Management, and a fashion pictorial in Cosmopolitan magazine.
Branden defeated Sandhurst Tacama Miggins, a 22-year-old from Tobago who currently resides in Philadelphia, PA, and Jonathan Waud, a 26-year-old from Southampton, U.K. who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA, during last night's finale broadcast.
Sandhurst finished as the competition's runner-up while Jonathan finished in third place. Both men took the news of their losses well.
"Looking good man. Don't worry, you can do it," Sandhurst whispered to Branden has they embraced immediately after Tyson announced Branden's win.
"Jennifer Hudson didn't win American Idol and she went and got an Academy Award," he added afterwards.
"This is it, the end of the journey. There's nothing I regret from this," Jonathan said. "I guess it wasn't my time to win and right now I guess I'm not a supermodel. In the future? Well, that chapter isn't finished yet."
