This season might just be one of my favorites because there are 3 black designers on the show oppose to just 1. So I want to take the time to shout them out on Urban Gent…
From: Houston, Texas
Biography: With a unique eye for details, Jerrell’s designs are intricate and creative. Jerrell found his passion for fashion by way of modeling. The former model admits to not being able to afford “the cool stuff” in his early career, and so he taught himself how to make what he wanted to wear. He describes himself as eclectic and bold and wants to create pieces that express people’s individualities. Inspired by life, Jerrell classifies his designs as “raw beauty.”
From: Chicage, Illinois
Jean-Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, and Cristobal Balenciaga
Fashion Must: Low-waist, bell-cut black pants
He has a line called Bloke that has been worn by American Idol‘s Randy Jackson, the rap singer Timberland and Saudi royalty, Scott said in a telephone interview: “It has raw opulent flair. I’m not just a jeans and T-shirt designer.”
You should definitely tune into Bravo every Wednesday at 9pm to watch Project Runway Season 5, it’ll give you a new appreciation for fashion designers.
Bloke is sold exclusively at H. Lorenzo Boutiques on Sunset Blvd.

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:
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)
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.
Urban Gent view: First impressions are very important and great dressing and grooming is the best first step to making a good impression.
There’s alot show premiering this week: Run’s House, Project Runway, and (drum roll please) From G’s to Gents- tonight at 10pm on MTV. You can check out my previous introductions of the show here & here.
Before watching the show tonight, go check out the cast and let us know who you think has the best chance at winning the 100 Grand. (See G’s to Gent Bios)
Remember that scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin? When Steve Carell’s character got his chest-waxed? Soooo painful! I just can’t see why a man would wanna go through that, but I guess Beyonce and Cassie prefer their men hairless. . .
