Fans might find themselves distracted by the ’66 Shelby Cobra that we see featured along with Shelby Paris [0-0] and coach Leon Hater. The shoot for the month of June brings us a newcomer in the aptly named Shelby and the first male coach included in the calendar, Leon. Coach Hater claims that the Cobra was his dream car growing up, but as a full-grown man, he is barely able to squeeze his body into the driver’s seat. The sniping behind the scenes is on full display here. A few of the fighters take issue with the unproven Paris getting into the calendar, and Leon gets criticized for showing up at all, especially by a jealous Joel Kane. This is no place for a man is the argument by the LFC women.
The hostility is obviously gone for the second half of this episode. Lending a hand throughout the shoot is LFC producer and stage manager, Paul Fairchild. He makes sure that Shay Mazzato [0-0], a former LFC Champion and undisputed icon, gets her wish to work/pose with not one but two Maseratis. The chilly morning air of the Las Vegas desert makes it challenging for ‘The Fox’, but she is a professional after all and does more than her best. July brings together the beauty of the physical model and the timeless look of Italian engineering, successfully melding the two for the viewer.
