Previously, the nine remaining girls struggled with a risqué photo shoot that pushed Rebecca out of her comfort zone. All the girls failed during their challenge in front of the judges, reading a teleprompter, and Tiffany started giving up on herself. Overall, the panel was unimpressed, so they made a drastic decision to cut both Rebecca and Tiffany. When Tiffany was not upset that she was eliminated, or at least didn’t show it, Tyra flipped out. I’m sure you remember that. The yelling began! Now, only seven girls are left. Who is going home tonight?
It’s the same night that Rebecca and Tiffany went home, and the other girls are sitting around and just can’t believe it. Keenyah says that she wasn’t expecting everything that happened tonight – from the two girls going home, to Tyra flipping out. Everyone agrees that Tiffany could have won, and Naima adds that everyone was rooting for her except for herself.
Tyra comes in and talks to the girls. She tells them that she understands they all have moments and want to give up; she has been though it too. Tiffany couldn’t see how special she was, and it pushed her off, which upset Tyra. Brittany says they all saw it in Tiffany, so it was upsetting. Keenyah says Tiffany’s head just wasn’t in it. Tyra ends her conversation with the girls by telling them to try, while Kahlen says that this opportunity will only happen once, and she has to do well. Michelle thinks that she is always so hard on herself, but is not that way so much anymore, and wants the Judges to see that.
In the house, Keenyah, Christina, and Brittany move into a room with Tatiana, since she has no more roommates left. Tatiana feels like the other three are already a group, and she’s a little bummed about it all. Tyra mail tells all the girls that they will be visited by an extraterrestrial. Be ready at 1 p.m.
The girls arrive at a hotel, and meet Jann Carl from Entertainment Tonight. She tells them her job is to get all the stories from them, and from her, they will learn how to speak to the media. Each girl will get to interview, and be interviewed. Kahlen says she loves to interview people, and Tatiana has no idea what questions to ask. Keenyah interviews Naima. They do their switch, and have some fun, while Kahlen is a little nervous and Jann doesn’t think she is being herself. Brittany gets funny, while Jann loves how Michelle is being herself. Christina wants to show she is warm, and interviews Tatiana, all while using the word “actually” about eight times between the two of them. Jann tells them to knock it off. Me-ow! You know what? I really do like Christina. The girls finish up their exercise and head home.
Back at the loft, the girls decide to go out that night. They head to a club, and Michelle says she has never been to a club, and doesn’t know what to expect. She gets comfortable pretty quickly though, as we see her all over the dance floor. Kahlen says that sometimes Michelle is very confident, and that she had some fun that night herself. Michelle thinks that blondes definitely do have a little more fun. The girls head home, and Kahlen checks her messages, only to find that a friend of hers from high school has passed away. She sits and ponders this, while breaking down. She says it’s hard to have a friend ripped away like that, and she’s trying to put it in the back of her head so that it doesn’t show in her photos. Oh Kahlen, that’s the worst thing you could do. Let it out girl, everyone deserves to grieve. I feel bad, since I’m a Kahlen fan.
Tyra mail tells the girls to be ready at the crack of down, and nobody knows what that means. Are you kidding me? I love these girls. They are like my little sisters! The girls arrive at their destination in the morning, and some woman, Bernadette Odoms, greets them and says that they will now have an interview challenge, which will involve Jann. Brittany is the first to go. Brittany walks in the room, and standing there is rap superstar, Eve! Philly pride, give it up! She must interview Eve on her new fashion collection. Brittany has issues functioning, and is a bit star struck. Jann says Brittany has some great energy, but there is too much “that great” going on after each question.
Naima is the next to go, and is also a bit star struck. Keenyah is all over the place, and loses her train of thought. Her questions make no sense. Are they even questions? I now love Keenyah six times more. Michelle asks some good questions, while Kahlen is the only girl to go for the personal questions. Tatiana doesn’t do too badly, and Eve says that Tatiana was throwing out questions all over the place. Christina says that she has to pull it together, and she also does a good job, with Jann commenting that she did a good job. Then she gathers the girls and says the winner will have their interview with Eve on ET. Overall, she says they were good, but the winner of the challenge is Christina. She’s glad that she won the challenge, and knows she had to step it up. Tatiana is disappointed and though she was going to win, but good for Christiana. Yay, Christina!
At home, Christina says that things are getting tense, and with only seven girls left, everyone is on edge. Keenyah tells Tatiana to start cleaning, and Tatiana doesn’t know what she’s talking about, then calls her boyfriend and cries that she has nothing in common with the other girls, and doesn’t get along with all of them. Oh God, suck it up! Tyra mail tells the girls that they will get to rest in peace tomorrow, and be ready in the morning. Kahlen says she doesn’t need to deal with this right now, since her friend just died and the clue is talking about death. Yeah, that’s a bit freaky.
The girls pile in the van in the morning. It’s very gloomy out, and they pull into a graveyard. Kahlen starts crying, and she says it’s messed up and doesn’t want to be there. Jay welcomes the girls and tells them that for today’s shoot, they will be the seven deadly sins. Each girl will have to portray one of them, while looking gorgeous, of course. He hopes that they don’t mind being in tight places, since they will be at the bottom of an eight foot grave. Kahlen looks like she’s in shock, and says that she has suppressed the pain for long enough, but now she has to deal with this. They meet the photographer, and Jay asks Kahlen if she is okay, and she says yes. Brittany tells Jay about her friend, and Jay has a talk with Kahlen. She tells him she’ll be okay, and he gives a few minutes before hair and makeup to get herself together.1 2 Next-->
