G’s to Gents: Episode 1

Some of these G’s are already Gents
great tie, shirt, suit combo

The first thought that entered my mind as I sat down to watch the show was “This ish is sooo fake… these guys are acting, and the acting is bad.” But hey- that’s “reality tv” for you, right?

Anyway here’s the rundown on what happened on Episode 1 of From Gs to Gents:

All 14 guys go into the house, they check it out, get drunk, then get their official club blazers. Fonzworth Bentley announces that their first lesson and challenge will be about First Impressions. He explains that while they are outside having dinner, he’ll pull them into the brandy room to get to learn more about each person.

The guys were basically getting drunk and acting like wangsters (wack-ass gansgters) as they awaited the 2:1 talks with Mr. Bentley. And I must say, Pretty Ricky was the guy of the show- getting drunk, hitting on chicks, and peeing in the backyard- it wasn’t a good look.

During the interviews we find out alot about the guys: Stan is a stripper, Creppa calls his glasses “hater blockers” and he proclaims himself as a goon… lol, yeah right dude, no “goon” would ever be on a reality show unless it’s a behind the scenes look into America’s prison system… but anyway, The Truth got into arguments with several guys in the house and Bentley Fonzworth didn’t like him too much either.

After dinner and the interviews each guy had to cast there Black Ball Vote- in which each guy voted for who he thought should go home. Majority of the G’s got no votes except for:

The truth- 5 votes
Pretty Ricky- 7 votes
Creepa- 1 (Zenel voted for him)
E6- 1

In the End:
Pretty Ricky went home: He was drunk as hell all episode and he wore a white blazer over his club jacket, which irked some people.

The Truth went home: E6 plotted against him heavily and told everyone to vote for him and it worked.

Fonzworth Bentley’s Gentleman’s Guide:
Lesson 1: First Impressions

The moment you walk into the room people are trying to figure you out: how you look, how dress, how firm your handshake is- these are queues people use to evaluate you. Leave a bad impression and it may last forever. You never have a second opportunity to leave a first impression.

Urban Gent view: First impressions are very important and great dressing and grooming is the best first step to making a good impression.

Wheat/Straw colored blazer, white & sea green plaid shirt,
copper tone pants, lavender tie, navy pocket square,
and gold tie clip.

First Impressions is a lesson that we all pretty much know, so the only real lesson from this show can be learned by paying close attention to Fonzworth Bentley’s attire. Dude is a sharp dresser, and we’ll definitely get some great style examples from him this season. Take note of the colors he wears, materials, and patterns- I think we’ll find alot of interesting combinations that work.

Zenel is a Sean John model

On another note… While watching the show I kept thinking that Zenel looked familiar and it’s because dude’s a Sean John model. He has also modeled for Akademics, Azzure, Virgin Mobile, and many others… He’s probably in the VIBE or Source Magazine that’s on your coffee table right now.

yeah, he’s a G alright, lol…

Male models are G’s now? Yeah-no the shows credibilty was pretty much shot after I learned this. I really don’t want to watch anymore episodes, but because I vowed to cover it-I will, but I think I’ll more or less only cover the lessons. Also, this season we can expect to see guest appearances by Master P, Irv Gotti, and a few others. Looks like a pretty violent season ahead of us, we’ll see…

  1. dude looks gay

  2. the only reason i would watch the show is to see fonzworth bentley’s wardrobe… but i’ll just come back here instead of wasting my time watching it…

  3. I’m glad Bentley parlayed his cameo’s into something. I’ll check out the show to see what people call G’s nowadays. I think the G stands for something else now than when I was growing up.

  4. also…one of the dudes is from the movie atl (the one whose money got wet in the pool)
