Previously, the final 14 girls arrived in New York City. They were told they would be on their way to Jamaica, and Cassie struggled with her posing. Amanda showed promise and Julie hit a home run with the judges. Magdalena failed to connect with the camera and was the first girl sent home. In NYC, the girls moved into their loft, met the judges, and faced their critiques. In the end, it was Leah’s awkwardness in her photos that led her to be the second girl eliminated.
We begin this week watching the girls complain about eating. Cassie says she obsessed about her weight and what she eats. She’s determined to be a model and will do anything it takes to become one. Also, we see Amanda on the phone with her son, Elijah. She says he’s her light and what keeps her going. Also, we learn that he was conceived to the hour of September 11. That kind of freaks me out. She knows that she’s a loving, hippy mom and wants everyone to love one another.
Tyra mail! Basically, it tells the girls that it’s time for their makeovers. Julie playfully worries about her hair, but everyone seems generally excited. They arrive at the salon, and Jay Manuel welcomes them. He says that he is going to give them a makeover lesson using Cover Girl cosmetics. Also, each girl will be getting a new hair style.
Tyra arrives and informs each girl what they will be having done. Kelle is getting long, wavy extensions. Julie is losing six to eight inches of her hair. Tyra says she admires Yaya’s hair because it shows her African pride, but she will be losing the braids to make her more versatile. Also, she knows she is very self-conscious about her skin, but Tyra found a dermatologist for her, whom she will go see later in the day.
Ann is going blonde and Nicole is going red. Toccara will be getting a lift in her hair and more thickness. Kristi will be given a more edgy look, along with bangs. Jennipher will be losing most of her long hair and going very blonde. Jennipher is visibly upset about this, but feels a little better when she finds that her hair will be donated to Locks of Love. Cassie will have a weave for more thickness and Amanda will go icy blonde to match her icy blue eyes. Eva’s hair will be cut shorter and given more shape. Norelle will have most of her hair chopped off, and will be going to see an orthodontist to lose the braces today!
The girls hit the chair and Nicole says that some of them are excited, while others are visibly upset. Eva and Jennipher seem to be taking it the worst. Eva doesn’t want to look like a little boy and is worried that she will with shorter hair. She’s just getting used to it being as short as it is now. Amanda says she is trying to be giving, but some of the girls are really scared. Jennipher says her hair has always been a security blanket for her. The stylist cuts it off, and Jennipher automatically says she feels so much lighter. Toccara and Kelle talk about what some of the girls are going to look like. Amanda is really excited and Nicole says she’s very happy with her new look because it makes her look edgier.
In addition to their hair, Jay teaches each girl how to get a clean, fresh look. Kristi feels like a totally different person and Toccara is really pleased as well, saying that she could be bald and still be a goddess. Cassie loves her new full look. Norelle is worried about her hair, but is just going with it all. Ann is interested about what the blonde look will do for her, and when it’s done, she cries that it’s too short. Cassie is shocked because she’s never seen people cry about their hair. Eva says she’s okay and loves the results. Ann says Julie looks exactly the same, and Julie figures that’s a compliment because she looks so unique that they really don’t need to change anything about her.
Yaya and Norelle head out to the dermatologist and the orthodontist. At the dermatologist, Yaya gets some blackheads taken care of and receives some product. She then rushes back to the salon to finish up her hair, which she loves, feeling that it gives her a boost of confidence. Norelle is at the orthodontist and gets her braces taken out. She has to wear a retainer for a year, but that’s no big deal. She gets back to the salon to finish her hair and loves the results. She’s more comfortable with herself and feels she will be a great model. Amanda finishes up and does some poses for the other girls. Yaya says it looks like Amanda is a diva now. Amanda tells the camera that she feels sexier and more powerful, and that intimidates some of the other girls. After everyone is finished at the salon, they all head out to eat with their new looks.
At dinner, Julie tells the camera that Cassie is a Diet Coke freak. Amanda says that Cassie doesn’t eat too much, sometimes not at all. Cassie admits that if she didn’t want to be a model, she would eat everything. Eva says people are beginning to wonder.
Tyra mail! The girls head to an Indian restaurant and are greeted by Jay. He says that they are going to be tested on what they learned yesterday. Kiara, a Cover Girl, will help him judge. Julie is just happy to see some ethnicity in the business, and Kiara says that race really doesn’t matter these days in the business, because anyone can look unique. Jay says that the prize of the contest will be to go with Kiara and him to an industry party to meet people. They have to apply all their makeup in a moving limousine in ten minutes, while at the same time getting dressed.1 2 3 Next-->
