Whitney is up next and the judges like her new, long hair. Nigel says that her photo this week looks forced in the face. Brittany steps forward and the judges love her new color and weave. She complains that it hurts and Tyra doesn’t look like she cares, actually praising Brittany when she does the “black girl pat” on her weave when it itches. I see girls do this on the bus all the time. Usually though, it’s a light scratch with a letter opener or a pen. I wish I was kidding. The judges look at her photo and feel it’s Fashion Week 2008. Tyra tells her there are no negatives. I have to admit, Brittany’s photo looks great!
Cassandra steps forward and has too much going on with her outfit. The judges look at her photo and feel she lost her neck. Tyra tells her to spend some time practicing her posing in the mirror. Renee didn’t work her new look and needs more edge. They feel her photo was good this week, but she has to connect more with the eyes. She was almost there, but just missed it.
Dionne was also off with her clothes this week. However, her photo makes her look tall and slim and everyone seems to love it. Diana steps up and they love her new look. In her photo though, the judges feel her face is great, but she has a problem with her posing and looks uncomfortable. Then Tyra goes into a spiel about sucking in the gut. Oh Lord!
Sarah looks great with her new hair and the judges feel she finally brought it this week in her photo. They even tell Renee to pay attention to Sarah’s eyes since she nailed it. Finally, we have Jaslene, who the judges say the camera loves. She looks great in her photo, but the judges don’t see a model in front of them. They want more personality and Jaslene tells them that she’s a “Cha Cha” at home. Tyra says that she NEEDS to show more culture, just like she shows culture when judging the girl’s photos. I didn’t know ghetto was a culture, but whatever. Now, it’s time for the judges to deliberate, and here’s what they had to say about each of the girls:
Jael had a tragedy, but still produced her best photo yet.
Natasha isn’t loved by the camera the way the judges love her, and they feel she has potential, but is there enough time to pull it out of her?
Whitney is pretty, but Nigel doesn’t think she’s model pretty. She’s called “singing in the choir” pretty, but Tyra thinks they are just hating.
Dionne is separating herself from the pack and is really one to watch.
Jaslene is picture perfect, but the personality isn’t there when she’s in front of the judges.
Sarah has it in the eyes and finally hit it this time.
Twiggy really likes Renee and all the judges all feel that she has flirty eyes with them.
Cassandra has a great personality within, but it isn’t translating in her photos.
Brittany is high fashion, but Ms. J. always feels like she’s on the verge of model droplets.
Diana is one of the prettier girls in the group, but she really needs to work on posing her body.
Felicia is becoming a “video girl” and needs to work on showing herself off in a more high fashion kind of way.
The girls walk back into the room. Tyra says that there are 11 girls in front of her, but she only has 10 photos. The first name called this week – is Brittany! Tyra tells her that the judges really loved her photo this week, and she really hopes that she can work with her weave and deal with it.
Jael is called next and she is told her photo was also beautiful. Jael is followed by Sarah, Dionne, Felicia, Renee, and Whitney, who Tyra tells that she really needs to start thinking more high fashion in her photos. Natasha is called next, followed by Jaslene. Tyra asks her why she was called so close to the end and Jaslene knows it is because of her personality.
Diana and Cassandra step forward. Tyra tells Diana that she is a beautiful girl, and as one of the voluptuous, sexy girls, she has to stand out. Instead, she’s fading. Cassandra is told that she has a great personality, and she’s the girl that gives all the other girls strength. However, even though she’s so well rounded, it’s not showing up in her photos. So who is sent home? The girl with the good photos that the judges can’t remember or the girl with the heart of gold who can’t show it in her pictures?
Diana is called forward and told that she is pretty, but it’s not just about that. Cassandra is given a hug by Tyra, and told to keep practicing. Aww, I liked Cassandra, but I called this elimination. All the girls give Cassandra a big hug and you can tell she is well liked because everyone is upset.
Back at the apartment, Cassandra says that she’ll miss everyone. She knows she has potential and thought she would go further, but even though she was sent home, she wishes she gave the judges more confidence. She appreciates the opportunity and knows that not many other girls had this chance.
Next week, the girls will face a challenge like no other – a bank heist (not a real one) – for a very good prize. Also, Renee will finally reach her breaking point, telling someone on the phone that she’s ready to beat all the girls down! Yikes! This is how I’m ranking the girls for next week:
