Back at the ranch – I mean loft – Xiomara reads Tyra mail telling them that eliminations are the next day and someone will be sent home. Yoanna doesn’t know who will be going this week and is nervous. Jenascia is worried that being short will play against her. Shandi talks on the phone with her boyfriend who so encouragingly says that he hopes she is eliminated so that she comes home. However, Shandi isn’t ready yet.
They get to the elimination room and see the judges sitting there. Tyra reminds them of what they are playing for and tells them that J. Alexander is the special guest judge for that week. However, first they each have to put on a slip dress and do a runway walk. Bethany goes first and J. tells her she goes too fast. They look at her photo but don’t feel it shows enough of her booty. Shandi is next and her walk is horrendous. Janice snips that Shandi needs to “eat, sleep, and sh*t” in heels if necessary, but definitely needs to practice. The look at her shot and like her pose, but the face is odd. April is next and apparently, according to Janice, her walk is repulsive. However, they like her photo but want more face next time.
Heather has an okay walk but the judges think her shot makes her look like she is on the toilet. Sara has too much jiggle in her walk, but they love the photo. Mercedes’ walk is admired by Tyra, but the judges feel her shot is a bit awkward. Jenascia doesn’t look that sexy in her shot and Janice isn’t happy with her height. They really aren’t sure about her shot either.
Here comes my absolute favorite part this week. Xiomara does her walk down the runway and after she is done, J. Alexander, with the quote of the week, says, “Gurrl, you walk like you on crack. Eyes all bugged out, you look like you was possessed.” Despite this, they love her photo and think it really sells the shoe.
Catie has a strong walk, but they compare her shot to a mall picture. Camille goes and they compliment her. J. calls Camille Ms. “Bling Bling” again, and I’m liking him more and more. Tyra thinks Camille has a bit of a drag queen in her, but that is a good thing. They love her shot as well. Yoanna does her walk and Tyra gives her an A+. All the judges feel she has improved but don’t like the shot she chose and show her one that was better. That’s it, time for the judges to decide.
They like Mercedes, and are on the fence with Yoanna. They still like Shandi, but don’t know if they can fix that walk of hers. April is amazing and Catie is a bit pinched but worth keeping around. Jenascia may not have what it takes, especially with the height thing. Camille is loved by all, and Heather is thought of as Nickelodeon. Everyone agrees that Sara needs to smile more. Bethany needs to lose some weight, according to Janice. Xiomara is also on the fence.
The girls come back in and Tyra informs them that she has 10 photos in front of her. The one who does not get a photo will be eliminated. Catie is first, than Yoanna, Camille, April, Mercedes, Sara, Xiomara, Heather, and Jenascia. This leaves Shandi and Bethany. They step forward, and the judges tell Shandi that her photo was great, but her walk was one of the worst they had ever seen. Bethany was told to pose differently so that her chest wasn’t the focal point, but still has an amazing face. The one that will stay in the competition is… Shandi. Bethany starts to cry as she leaves. She didn’t think she would be going this early, if at all. This was her dream and she wanted it bad.
Next week, Heather struggles to fit in as we see her crying on the phone. Everyone is getting platinum blonde hair, and fear takes Catie for a ride. However, it’s Shandi who can’t handle the pressure as we see her collapsed on the ground in a pile of tears. This should be good.
I’m not really sure how I feel about all this. My three favorites are still Mercedes, Jenascia, and Xiomara – even if she does walk like she is on crack. I think Mercedes is going to win, and I don’t really think Jenascia will be around that much longer. I still love her though. Besides that, all I have to wonder is if Camille will ever realize that all she does is think of excuses. After seeing all this, she better. She is a very pretty woman, but the inside isn’t looking so great. That can be worked on, though, and hopefully in the next few weeks, she will calm down. I can’t wait until next week.
