Everyone comes back into the judging room and Nicole is up first. She chose the motorcycle hat and has a tiara on it as well, in an attempt to look very grunge. The judges feel it’s almost an act and don’t think it’s fashion. They look at her photo for this week, though, and love it.
Toccara comes up in her cowboy hat and the judges can’t see personality. They view her photo and aren’t fond of that either, with Nole’ saying the spider did a good job! They feel she “isn’t there” anymore and she’s no longer being herself. Amanda goes up next and they love her look. Nigel says it’s very Annie Lennox, and I agree. However, when they look at her photo they think it’s not her best and too old-fashioned and very stiff looking.
Ann faces the judges next, and they feel her outfit is a disaster. Nigel points out that her shirt is dirty! Rebecca says the outfit is crappy and that Ann doesn’t give a damn. They like her photo and feel the face is good, but they aren’t drawn to it. The photographer said that she only had one good shot, out of many.
Norelle is up next, and they say she looks pretty, but needs to learn how to showcase her clothes and add more attitude. They look at her shot and like the yes, but feel the mouth is tense. Eva comes up and also chose the motorcycle hat. Nobody is impressed with this one and everyone think she looks cheap. Rebecca says that Eva looks like a go-go dancer on the way home after work. Has Rebecca seen many of those? They look at Eva’s photo, though, and love it to death. Eva admits she was scared, and the judges admire her perseverance.
Last to face the judges is MY Yaya. At first, it looks as though they like her outfit, but then they turn on it. Nole’ isn’t feeling it at all and Rebecca says something about Yaya and her African heritage which makes Tyra uneasy. Yaya goes off on the African-like hat and Tyra snaps that she’s being too defensive. They look at her shot and love the way it looks, calling it the best shot of the week. Uh-oh, MY Yaya has to learn not to snap back at Ms. Tyra or she might go home!
Time for the judges to deliberate! They all feel that Toccara has become a shell and lost her personality. Nole’ think she’s beautiful, and has a great face, while Tyra just feels Toccara is giving up. Norelle is trying too hard in her images but hasn’t mastered it yet. Tyra finds her very photogenic.
Eva slam-dunked the shoot this week and Janice thinks it’s flawless. Yaya looks great, and Tyra feels she can easily take a picture, but may be too condescending. Nicole didn’t pull the whole thing off, and while it’s still beautiful picture, they worry she might not be a star. Ann is almost incapable of taking great pictures, and Rebecca adds that Ann doesn’t give a damn about style. I never thought I would defend Ann, but Rebecca really needs to shut the hell up. Amanda looks dead this week in her photo, and Tyra says she has to stop resting on pretty.
The girls walk back into the room. Tyra tells them she has six photos, which belong to the girls moving on. The first girl called, is Nicole. Eva follows and is commended once again on her photo and for not showing her fear. Amanda is next, and is told that she looks red carpet hot, but has to work her photos more.
Yaya told that she looks stunning, but her appearance and style are too natural and she needs to look glamorous. Yaya apologizes to Rebecca and the other judges for her outburst and walks away, but then Tyra calls her back over to lecture her on the outburst. Umm, she already apologized, Tyra, let it go. Norelle is called next, and Tyra says she looked like she was giving up.
The final two girls, Toccara and Ann, step up. The girl not called must leave right away. Tyra says the modeling industry is about drive. Right now, she says, neither of them looks like a model, or even a model in the making. She knows that Toccara wanted to be a model inside and out, and lived and breathed it. Tyra sees Ann as a competitor, who will stop at nothing to win this. She can’t send them both home, and calls Ann’s name. Toccara heads out, but hugs all the girls and waves to all the judges before she leaves.
Up in her room, Toccara cries a little, and then tells the camera that she should be in the final three. Still, she is happy to be there and to have made it this far. She hopes that the next plus-sized girl on the show makes it even further. Toccara leaves us saying that she knows it won’t happen overnight, but hopefully she is making a path for other plus-sized girls. I believe she is.
Next week, Yaya’s winning streak at the challenges becomes an issue, and we see Norelle telling her that, even though she’s winning the challenges, that doesn’t mean she’ll win the whole thing. Also, the girls will get an acting lesson with Taye Diggs and it looks as though it’s time for a trip, but we don’t know where to!
By the way, I was right last week – Toccara was eliminated! This is how I rank the girls this week, and the last place girl is the one I think will be going home. I’ll be back next week!
