Maybe Kelsey Owens and Madisson Hausburg should just move to New York City on a permanent basis.
Siesta Key Season 1 Episode 14 took the two women to the Big Apple, and it gave us our biggest showcase of the drama this show can bring without coming across as a convoluted mess.
Kelsey was trying to recapture her former glory and become a runway model again, but she never got the memo that a four-year career hiatus can be detrimental.
The first meeting was awkward. The men burst out laughing at Kelsey’s aspirations of making it back onto the runway. It was a disgusting insight into the world of modeling.
We’re surprised Kelsey did not make her way back to Florida in the aftermath of that first meeting. She showed she had some resilience and continued her mission to return to the world of modeling.
However, Kelsey’s issue was that she was using old shots mixed in with new ones, and her body had changed. She was 16-years-old in the original shots.
That was a big flaw in Kelsey’s plan to take over the world, and it cost her another job as a swimwear model. However, things looked up when she stopped by the offices of Wilhelmina.
Betsy was the first person to sit Kelsey down and reiterate to her that her body had changed and that she needed to carve out a different way back into the industry.
Kelsey agreed to go the more commercial route, and all seemed right in the world. All of the New York scenes with Kelsey felt like they were taken from The City.
They were great!
It’s just a shame Madisson was along for the ride. Unbeknownst to her, her relationship with Brandon was combusting.
Brandon was performing at Rhythm and started getting closer to Canvas before the big performance. But, in a hilarious twist of fate, he left with another chick entirely.
Yes, he also spent the night. Chloe witnessed him leaving, so we’re sure she sent Madisson a message in a bottle to let her know all.
Elsewhere, Juliette returned to town and tried to tell Garrett that she didn’t think they were working, and Garrett agreed.
He stormed off and left her on the beach after telling her he had no feelings for her whatsoever. Juliette deserved it after the way she acted towards him.
The relationship was never built on a solid foundation, and that was solidified by the way she ran back to Alex because she could not be without a boyfriend.
These kids are as self-destructive as they come, and that’s going to get them all in trouble.
How long will it be before Kelsey and Madisson move to New York full-time?
