Even Gs know the rules of public speaking

On a recent episode of From Gs to Gents, one contestant proved that even Gs know not to apologize during an introduction.

After meeting with a stylist in Beverly Hills, the Gs are tested on their new fashion knowledge. In teams, they put together outfits appropriate for three different occasions, then present them in a fashion show.

As T-Jones, a large man who had trouble finding clothes his size, takes the runway, D-Boy begins his introduction: "My model here did not have enough to choose from for his fashion attire."

Kesan, another teammate, says to the camera, "T-Jones is about to hit the runway and D-Boy is messing it up for him before he even hits the runway.

Why is this guy making excuses? Excuses, excuses, excuses!"

Kesan may have anger problems, and he may constantly be on the verge of punching someone's lights out, but he sure knows the rules of public speaking!

Funny article, and illustrates a good point.

Now...we've never met before, but I have a hard time imagining that you are an avid watcher of "From G's To Gents" :D

Well Brandon, the truth is, I was interviewed by the producers a couple of months ago for a possible coaching role on the show.

Even though I ended up not being on the show, I can't help but watch it to see how it all turns out!
