Manhunt’s Jon was “secretly selected as the winner two episodes” before the finale.
Manhunt winner Jon Jonsson “learned later that he had been secretly selected as the winner two episodes” before the finale, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. A disclaimer at the end of every episode suggested judges and producers conferred, and Jon says that led to conflict. “Manhunt’ was just a show to exploit all these guys. I’m not afraid to say it–I’m not under Bravo’s contract anymore. Secret battles were going on between IMG and Bravo people over who was going to be eliminated, based on who would make good TV.” Earlier this month, he went “to the Dominican Republic for an Abercrombie & Fitch shoot with renowned fashion photographer Bruce Weber.” Towleroad also discovered that the cast will be in the spring A&F, and also points us to Ron’s new modeling gig–which is very different from his old modeling gig.
