Previously, Toccara’s full figure made her a star at the girls’ first runway show. Once again, Kelle got some harsh criticism from the judges on her photo shoot, and, although Jennipher performed a critical error in front of the judges by writing “ANTM” on her butt, it was Kristi’s insecurity that made her the fourth girl cut.
It’s nighttime, right after the elimination. Eva talks to Jenn about putting “ANTM” on her behind. Jenn tells the camera that she likes to joke around and didn’t expect this to be such a flop. Eva says that Tyra is a classy woman, and even Janice didn’t think it was funny. If Janice doesn’t like something raunchy, it can’t be good! Ann tells the camera she’s glad they finally liked her shot, and thinks this should prove to the judges why she is there in the first place.
In the morning, we see Kelle looking in the mirror trying to practice with her faces. Toccara is on the phone with her dad and tells him she’s mad at her mom. Then, she tells the camera that she is proud of who she is and can’t rely on anyone. Next comes Tyra mail, informing the girls that New York pretzels aren’t the only thing that’s twisted. Off to the gym they go!
The girls walk into the gym and find Saavas, their personal trainer, who tells them they will be doing yoga for the day. The girls begin their exercises, and Ann says it’s rough. Toccara decides that she doesn’t like yoga at all.
In the middle of their exercises, Janice Dickinson sneaks in, and all the girls eventually see her. She gets up and goes to the front, then begins to lecture the girls on poses. She tells the camera that, with her direction, anyone can become a diva. She then gets into her swimsuit, which leaves little for the imagination. Janice shows the girls how to pose in a swimsuit and tells them it’s important not to look like a porn star, as she opens her legs about as far as anyone I’ve ever seen! She then basically bends Toccara every which way and puts Cassie, Jenn, and Ann in a photo triple. About two minutes in, she kicks Jenn out of the photo, while Eva tells the camera that Jenn is in trouble. Jenn says she’s not worried about it because it’s only practice, so it’s no big deal.
Janice says it’s time for gowns. She puts all the girls in evening gowns, and dons one herself. All the girls try to work their gowns, but Eva is told she’s doing it all wrong. Janice gives her some pointers, and tells the camera that Eva has promise. Norelle also impresses Janice, even though she doesn’t know how to walk in high heels. Janice calls Toccara a queen, and loves most of the other girls too… but then comes Jenn. She tells Jenn to pretend it’s a cow giving birth in Idaho. How is that supposed to help her pose? Janice tells the camera that Jenn has no expression and she’s not impressed at all. Kelle is told to hide her face if she can’t do it correctly. Kelle tells the camera that she knows she’s not doing well, and maybe she’s just not as cute as she thought. Janice thanks the girls for their time, and heads out.
Back at the loft, Kelle and Yaya sing and dance in front of the mirror, until Toccara busts out with them. Tyra comes in and gathers up all the girls. She tells them that she knows it’s a stressful time for them, and it’s time for some one-on-one talks.
Kelle is up first. Tyra tells her that her strength is her skin, but she has to figure out how to place her face better. Ann says that she knew modeling was hard, but thought it would come naturally to her. Tyra says that she has to practice every day, just like she had to for water polo. Cassie says she’s glad to be there, and won’t go back to stripping. Tyra agrees and says she won’t allow it.
Tyra talks to Jenn and says she doesn’t feel like Jenn wants to be there. Jenn doesn’t understand that, and Tyra says that she has to learn how to show some fire and emotion in her shots. Jenn says that she knows she has to show personality, and will try harder.
Toccara tells Tyra that she’s there to break barriers. People tell her she’s too big, but she doesn’t care. She’s been through so much negative, and starts to cry. Tyra tells her crying will make her a better person because nobody is one-dimensional. Toccara just wants to help her mom and dad get back together, but she now realizes that they need to want that too. Tyra knows that Toccara thinks that if she is successful her parents will get back together, but that’s not enough. Toccara reiterates that she won’t go back to the same thing, and cries because she can’t do anything about it. Tyra calls Toccara an inspiration, and to use her power. They hug, and I sigh.
In their room, Toccara tells Yaya that Tyra made her cry. Toccara tells the camera that she’s shocked that she cried, and knows that she has to be strong, and not be a crier. She says she WILL be the last one standing.
Kelle crying in the bathroom. She says she always has the worst photos, and is starting to think she’s ugly. Toccara comes in and tells her not to cry. Kelle says she can’t look in the mirror anymore, and Toccara tells the camera that Kelle came into this whole thing saying she was so beautiful, and now the judges broke her. Toccara takes Kelle and listens to her. Kelle says that she figured out that she has a snout, and she can’t really fix it, then shows Toccara a model in a magazine with the same thing. Toccara tells her to work it because if another girl can make money with a snout, Kelle can too. Kelle still seems discouraged.1 2 3 Next-->
