When the girls get back to the apartment, they get Tyra Mail telling them that they will do an audition for D2, pronounced D Squared, to see who has what it takes to be one of their models. Mercedes knows the pressure is high, and Shandi states that the competition is fierce.
The girls get to their destination and meet Dean and Dan, the owners of D2. Ohh, I get it now. Stupid. Anyway, Shandi says they remind of her of the chipmunks – always finishing each others sentences. They talk to Mercedes first and she tells them that they are funky like her. They like her personality. Shandi is up next and tells them that their clothes are real, just like her. They feel Shandi is a pallet and can be worked with. They think Yoanna is a professional and they can tell she likes fashion. They ask the women who their favorite designers are, and Mercedes and Shandi say Betsey Johnson, which is the wrong answer. Shandi says she thought they really wanted to know. One of them says to her, “Nobody ever really wants to know what you think,” because they wanted to hear the girls say THEM! They meet with Jay in another room and D2 plays dress up with the girls. Yoanna and Shandi both note how great the clothes fit Mercedes and even D2 pick up on that.
Enough of that though – it’s time for Tyra Mail! They will meet with the judges and someone will be eliminated. Mercedes is nervous and Shandi didn’t think it was coming this soon. Yoanna is seeing the reality in the situation. What the hell is she talking about? So anyway, the girls walk in, and we meet the judges and our guest judges, D2. This will be a special elimination because the two girls remaining will face off in a fashion show which will determine who will win. Time for individual evaluations
Mercedes is first and does her walk. Tyra says she has a great glide to her walk, but has to start taking bigger steps. They look at her photo and all the judges love it, especially the look on her face. Shandi is up, and Janice praises her walk, but the other judges tell her that she lacks confidence. They like her photo, but not as much as the one Mercedes took. They like her face with the makeup, but aren’t sure if she is okay with being transformed. Yoanna does her walk and D2 don’t seem to be impressed. Janice loves her shot this week though, but they aren’t sure how she’ll do under pressure. I have to admit, Yoanna has an amazing beauty shot. But it’s time for the judges to deliberate. They agree that all the girls are good. Yoanna is amazing, but does she have the full package? She breathes fashion, but they aren’t impressed with her consistency. Mercedes has a great walk and a great body. Her life experience shows in her photos. She has the beauty for commercial and for high fashion. Shandi has what it takes, but maybe has stalled. Tyra says Shandi’s look confuses people, and that’s what she loves. Who should go home though? The judges are getting headaches just thinking about it.
The girls walk back into the room. Tyra says that she has two photos left, and they are the girls that will compete in the final part of the competition. Mercedes is called up first, as I SCREAM at the top of my lungs out of sheer joy. Tyra says that she has come so far and has finally showed that edge they were looking for. Her picture this week saved her ass, and had she of shown even a hint of a smile she would have went home. Shandi and Yoanna step up. Yoanna started out strong and proved how great she was. Shandi started out weak, but has shown that she is beautiful. However, both fell apart today. If they can’t handle six people judging them, how will they do on a runway? One name will be called, and that name – is Yoanna! Shandi hugs the girls and walks out with grace and dignity. She tells the camera that she doesn’t even recognize herself at times, has grown so much, and really knows how to appreciate herself now. Now she won’t feel so lost when she gets home and is going to work things out with her boyfriend. Good for her! Shandi is a good person, deep down, and just made some mistakes. I wish her well, and I’m gonna miss her.
Mercedes and Yoanna get back to the apartment and find Shandi Mail, thanking them for all the help they gave her. Yoanna says she’ll miss Shandi, but she’s one step closer to having her dream fulfilled. Mercedes says that there is no way Yoanna will take her title, even though she thinks she’s a nice person. Tyra takes both girls to where the fashion show will be. Mercedes is nervous and Yoanna is excited. Jay and Tyra give the girls some preliminary advice while the stage is set!
Before the show, Mercedes asks some of the other girls how long they have been doing this and they say since they were about 12. Wow! Yoanna is ready to shine and the judges are there – even J. Alexander! The show starts and the girls come out. Yoanna is not far behind and she looks great! Mercedes struts herself too and she is looking hotter than ever. After their first appearance they run back and change. Yoanna is rushed back out and does her thing again. She is rocking the runway! Mercedes walks to the end of the runway, does a pose and tells the camera that pose was for Yoanna and she was thinking “F**k that bitch!” Okay, that’s the quote of the night!<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
