Leader Annaliese is next up for her shot and in her mind, she has screwed up so badly as a leader that if she doesn’t have a good shot, she’ll be sent packing… I have to agree with you, Annaliese. Jay doesn’t buy anything Annaliese is doing and feels she is insecure and too methodical about her skills as a model.
With time ticking, Louise literally runs to her final touch-ups. This does not fly with Kelly whatsoever, who tells us that Louise has one of the worst attitudes ever… According to Jay, the adrenaline and anger Louise had towards Kelly forced her to get to a place where she wants to show them all she has. After Louise, that’s a wrap!
Now, each girl must pick one of her own shots to show at panel – as opposed to having a best photo picked for them.
Speaking of panel… We join the regulars (Kelly Cutronr, Tyra, and Nigel Barker) and guest judge, Cat Deeley. (Host of So you Think You Can Dance and one of my personal favorite hosts of all time.) Tyra reminds the contestants what the winner will receive when named America’s Next Top Model. Tyra starts with the UK Team, which means Annaliese is bashed right away by Kelly. But for Annaliese, Kelly likes the risk she took jumping in her shoot.
After Kelly, Sophie is ready to hear the judges’ thoughts on her shoot. The judges love the quirkiness and even compare Sophie to Twiggy! Catharine’s turn to hear about her photo comes and Nigel immediately talks about the humor she has that shows in her photos. Is that a good thing? I guess so. The eyes of Catherine remind the judges of Princess Diana’s. Ashley is next up and, unfortunately, the judges do not like the shot – not at all. Oops.
Alisha is now up and, sadly, the judges are disappointed in the shot she chose. The tears come and she walks back to the line. The judges then call Louise, and Nigel says Louise looks “mean” in her photo. Louise disagrees. Up next, all hell breaks loose.
Kelly gives Louise a critique, and Louise fights back. Tyra and Cat both analyze Louise and Louise shakes her head, looks down, and doesn’t even listen. In fact, she walks back to her team. No, wait. Forget the team – she walks back stage. Louise walks outside and cusses out everything about Kelly Cutrone and continues yelling, “I need to go home! I want to go home.”
Louise continues to break down and crumble, feeling that she has lost herself in this competition. She can’t take it and Louise leaves the competition. Wow. That just happened.
Moving on. The US Team is ready for their results and AzMarie is first up. The judges rave about not only her photo, but also her leadership. In Tyra’s words, “She did it.” Kyle is next up and Nigel loves the shot, especially her eyes. Seymone’s turn. Kelly doesn’t feel like she owned her body in the shot, with the other judges asking her to over-sexualize her body. Laura is now up and Nigel loves the photo, but does want to see her face more as she is shown in profile. For Eboni, the judges say the photo is too sexy. Lastly, Candace is up, but her photo doesn’t cut it at all. Her pose is cheesy and the photo just defeated her.
The judges discuss their favorites and not-so favorites from this challenge. The judges say, more or less, the same things they said to the models in person, but also discuss Louise, the ex-contestant. In Cat’s words, “Louise needs to learn a few life lessons.” The judges actually loved Louise’s photo, but didn’t even get a chance to compliment her on it. The judges continue on to the US Team, loving almost all the shots! Sadly for Candace and Eboni, the judges hate their photos.
The judges have made a decision and call all the models (except Louise) back to the runway.
The first name Tyra calls is AzMarie, winning Best Photo for the week! The following models are also given photos: Sophie, Laura, Kyle, Catharine, Seymone, Annaliese, and… Louise. Those eight photos were considered worthy to use by the client, very.com. Sadly for Candace, Eboni, Alisha, and Laura, their photos were not up to par with what very.com wants for its image. Tyra only has one photo left, so who will stay and who will be sent home?
Tyra pulls the final photo out and…
It is a collage of all four shots. All models are still in the running, due to the hasty exit of Louise.
Now we are given a small glimpse into Louise’s thought process behind quitting, but sadly, I don’t buy it. I don’t care what show it is, but quitting is not the best way to leave… But, alas, to each his own.
Until next week (when it looks like somebody else wants to quit), that’s all! Peace!
