Yaya says she never knows what the panel will say to her about her poses, so she’s trying to get rid of the dance influence, which is not helping. Amanda is the last to go, and Jay tells her that she’s the only one that got the shoot. Yaya goes on saying that Amanda was doing dancer poses, but of course, the judges will love it. Jay tells Yaya that she needs to take the things the judges say and just cut back on the dance poses, not get rid of them totally.
Tyra mail tells the girls that someone is going home tomorrow. Ann says she is nervous because there aren’t a whole lot of girls left, so you can’t really afford to have a bad week anymore. The girls walk into the judges’ room, and Tyra greets them, telling them that this week they learned about health and fitness, and it’s now time for their sixth cut. She reminds them of the prizes and reintroduces them to the judges, including Kate Dillon, that plus sized model. Tyra informs the girls that they always have to be on point, so there test this week would be the pictures they took after running up the steps, along with their YJ Stinger photos.
Norelle is first. They look at her building photos, and she looks exhausted. Janice says Norelle looks to be in pain, while Nole’ actually likes it. They look at her YJ shot and feel it looks amazing. Kelle is second, and Janice calls her building photos horrible, and Tyra agrees. They don’t like her YJ photo either and feel it’s too contrived, while Janice tells Kelle to start showing expression. They take a look at Nicole next, and aren’t sure about her building photos, but love the trampoline photo – she does look awesome! I tell ya, Nicole is really getting ahead in my book. Toccara steps up next and they love the intensity of her building poses, but aren’t sure about the YJ photo, feeling that she didn’t have enough freedom.
Cassie goes next, and they feel her building poses are just too “modelly.” I’m not sure what that means, but Tyra actually likes her YJ photo, while Janice feels Cassie looks like a scarecrow. Eva steps up and says that she gagged on the steps as they look at her building photos. They say she looks too short in her YJ photo, and has to stop flaring her nostrils.
Amanda is next, and they love her building photos, even though you can’t see her eyes in them. They are amazed with her trampoline photos and tell her that the photographer called her the star of the shoot. The judges like Yaya’s photos on the building, but aren’t sure about her YJ shoot. They don’t really like the photo at all. Tyra says that she has to learn how to take advice, and find balance in turning her eloquence into high fashion. Ann goes last and they say her building photos make her look tired and pedestrian. Her trampoline shot is not good either, and they feel her face looks scary, while Nole’ says nothing is coming across at all. Janice, of course, hates it. Now it’s time for the judges to deliberate.
The judges’ hope that Yaya doesn’t lose her training, and take steps backwards instead of forward. They all love Amanda’s photo this week, and although Nole’ admits he’s not a big fan of Nicole, he loves her photo this week. Norelle did a great job, while Nole’ states that Toccara is plus-sized, but still pulling it off. Janice says that Nole’ just likes Toccara because he’s a plus-sized girl, himself. Nole’ agrees. The judges agree that Eva has a lot going for her, and that Ann is not very photogenic, but Tyra says it still might be able to be fixed.
Everyone agrees that Kelle is lovely in person, but screws up every shoot. Janice wants her to go home. Janice also says that Cassie doesn’t have a clue, and they are all confused by her photos. All the judges say that she needs to show more life in her shots.
The girls walk back into the judging room, and Tyra tells them that there are nine girls there, but only eight photos in Tyra’s hands. The first girl called is Eva. She tells Eva that they loved her photo this week. She is followed by Amanda, Nicole and Yaya, who is told once again to balance herself out and take critiques well enough to make the necessary changes to make her poses work. The next girl called is Toccara, followed by Norelle and Cassie, who is told that she looks amazing, but there is still sadness in her and maybe talking to someone will help with that.
Ann and Kelle step up. One photo is left, and the girl not called will have to pack her bags and leave. Tyra says she’s never had to do this before, but both girls are getting the same advice. Both of them are beautiful to the eye, but it doesn’t translate in the photos. They are the walking signposts for “pretty girl, not photogenic.” However, one may have a little more potential than the other, and that would be Ann. Kelle is eliminated. Kelle gives her hugs and heads out the door.
As she packs her bags, Kelle says that she tried, but there is only so much humiliation she can take. Not everyone is meant to model, and she knows that she has been called all types of bad things, but has grown from it all, and this has made her stronger.
Next week, the girls get their party on in the hot tub. Uh-oh, remember last time the girls partied in a hot tub? Amanda says the hot tub brings out the girls’ bad sides. Also, the girls get to meet some of New York City’s top designers. But is high fashion ready for plus-sized Toccara? Looks like we’ll find out! Oh, and now that I really love Yaya, I have decided to make her “MY Yaya” just like I did with Mercedes last season. Especially since she put Ann in her place! Ugh, I LOVE Yaya! Here’s how I’m ranking the girls in my head this week – have a good weekend!
Like: Yaya, Cassie, Toccara, Nicole
Not Sure: Norelle
Dislike: Ann, Eva, Amanda
