Shandi is up first. They love her walk at the go-see and they think she handled it well, especially Janice. They look at her photo this week and say it’s perfect. Tyra notes that the photographer liked working with Shandi the most out of all the girls.
Mercedes is up and they look at her video. Tyra tells her to work on her walk and in her photo they say her pose is awkward and too commercial.
Camille steps forward and her video shows something very disturbing. She argues with the people at the go-see and tries to debate everything they say to her. Basically, she has an attitude. The judges are all shocked that she would display that kind of attitude to someone who might possibly hire her, and Camille thinks of some excuses, but they don’t work. They like her photo this week, but everyone agrees that she could do better. Tyra also notes that the photographer said Camille was his least favorite to work with.
Yoanna’s turn, and the judges agree that she was not too aggressive at the go-see, and has to learn not to back down. They love her picture this week, though. April is told that from her video, she needs to learn how to deliver her answers better. Her photo is controversial with some of the judges, like Tyra, liking it and others, like Janice, thinking she looks like a corpse or that the battery on her vibrator just died. I’ve officially heard it all.
Time for discussion! Everyone thinks Shandi could definitely be a supermodel, but needs to learn how to focus. Yoanna has emerged into the competition, but they still aren’t sure about her body. April has a fierce personality, but has to learn to exert herself more. Camille simply needs to lose the attitude. Lastly, Mercedes is presentable, but they aren’t sure about her because she is just way too commercial. How many times are they going to say this before we get the point? They did it with Bethany’s boobs, Sara’s sexiness, and now it’s Mercedes and being commercial. It’s driving me nuts.
Anyway, the girls file back into the room with Tyra telling her that she has four photos in her hand. The one who doesn’t receive their photo will be eliminated.
Shandi is called up first. They tell her that her picture is hands down the best, and could be an ad. Yoanna is called and told she did great. April is next and Tyra tells her that she is too technical and needs to relax.
This leaves Mercedes and Camille. They step forward as Tyra tells Camille that she is such a beautiful woman, but has an attitude. They want her to be there, but the way she acts is just atrocious. Mercedes is told that she has an amazing personality, and they love her for it. However, she is just too commercial that they don’t think it’s going to work. At this point, I’m think Mercedes is done, and I think she does too as we see her crying. But sure enough, Tyra says that Mercedes needs to keep shining with the personality, and hands her the last photo. She breaks down, and I have a tear in my eye.
Camille, emotionless as usual, gives everyone a hug, says goodbye to the judges, and leaves. She tells the camera that she wanted this, but guesses it just wasn’t meant to work out. You can see she was crying at one point, and she tells the camera that she’s sad and disappointed, but will take the positives and criticisms that she received in the competition and will make herself better.
Next week, the girls get visited by more Italian guys, and a drunken Shandi kisses one of them. She calls her boyfriend to confess, and he doesn’t seem too happy. Looks like things are going to get ugly.
Well, there we have it. I honestly thought my Mercedes was done for. That’s right, she’s MY Mercedes now – so back off. Anyway, I’m thinking they only kept Camille around for as long as they did for the drama. Everyone loves the troublemaker, and it would have been pretty dull if she went earlier – especially since the only other rivalry is the one that Yoanna secretly has for April. Is it me, or is Yoanna getting pretty annoying? I’m quite sick of her complaints and hearing how this is her dream. I’d love to see Mercedes or Shandi beat her, and to an extent, April too – who I still don’t have a concrete opinion of. Oh well, that’s the breaks, see ya next week!
