On that note, the girls are done! When they get home, Tyra mail tells them that someone is going home tomorrow! Lluvy says she’ll freak if she’s in the bottom two again this week, and Michelle just hopes that she isn’t eliminated because of her skin.
The girls walk into the judging room and Tyra says it’s time for the fourth cut. She tells them about the prizes and introduces them to the judges, including the guest judge, Jim Deyonker, the producer of their shoots. For their test this week, the girls will learn to get ready at a moment’s notice. They have to apply a “night look” in three minutes, without brushes or mirrors. This should be good. Tyra sets them loose and everyone is rushing. Before you know it, time is up and Tyra makes them stop. Oh dear God, the horror. I wish you could see what some of these girls look like.
Brittany is the first girl in front of the judges and Nole’ says it looks like she took a Crayola crayon and scribbled on her face. I have to agree, it does. They look at her shot though and they love it. Tyra says she looks like her when she was a kid, with her mom. Naima comes in next and Janice says her makeup looks like something on a Rand McNally globe. Nigel says her photo was rough this week. Rebecca is up next and Tyra says her makeup is from the ‘70s. They like her shot, but want her to hold back some smile next time. Keenyah has a shirt on that say “America’s Next Top Model” and tells them to think about it. Aww, she’s so cute! Janice doesn’t like her makeup, but everyone adores her shot this week.
The judges look at Noelle’s shot and love it. She is lacking in the eyes, but that can be fixed. Tyra tells her that since she is short, she can’t wear flip flops. Janice doesn’t see anything in Noelle at all. Tatiana looks dead in the face and Janice says she looks like Cher in the photo. Kahlen is told that she has no makeup on at all, but they are happy with her photo this week. Christina is called “Plain Jane” with her makeup, and her photo makes her look a little possessed. Tiffany’s photo is good, but she looks like a madam at a brothel, according to Janice.
Lluvy is told she should have used more makeup, and Janice says that she likes her shot this week. Nole’ isn’t impressed and Nigel says he worries that her look won’t translate onto film. Michelle is last and slumps up to the judges. They know something is wrong, and Nole’ says her lack of confidence is unattractive. She shows them her skin and Janice tells her to forget about it and move on – she’s had worse. They look at her shot, and feel that she was a bit too cold. Michelle agrees and starts berating the picture! Janice tells her a story about something on her eye before and how she went to work and still pulled it off. It’s now time for the judges to deliberate.
Everyone feels that Christina is the same as usual, and Janice is bored with her. Tiffany is striking, but not enough yet. Brittany is larger than life and her personality will help her. Rebecca has potential, and Keenyah is delivering week after week, and even takes criticism well. Naima is stepping back this week, while Kahlen is flawless to Nole’.
Noelle doesn’t read as a model, but her photo was one of the strongest this week. Tatiana is interesting, and Michelle has big problems – not including her skin. I don’t think they are fond of the attitude she is giving. Everyone agrees that Lluvy has something, but Janice says she looks like a marshmallow with lipstick on. Okay, that might win as the line of the evening.
The girls come back in the room and Tyra says there are eleven girls in front of her, but she only has ten photos. The first girl called… is Rebecca, who is told that the down home girl got edgy with some Italian in her. Christina is called next, followed by Tatiana and Tiffany, who is told that her face is strong, but she has to give it more.
Kahlen is called next, then Naima, and Brittany, who Tyra says really rocked it out this week. Only three girls are left standing there – Noelle, Lluvy, and Michelle. This is odd since Keenyah was never called, yet is now standing on the other side with her photo. That’s a little odd, huh? The next girl called is Michelle, who is told that girls get things all the time, and she has to stay strong and focused. Lluvy and Noelle step up. Tyra says she only has one photo in her hand, and the girl not called has to go back to the loft, pack up, and go home.
Tyra says that these two girls are on totally opposite sides of the spectrum. Lluvy has all the potential in the world, but three out of her four shots were not good. Noelle is told that she doesn’t look like a model, but is great in her pictures. The judges aren’t sure if they should get rid of the girl with potential, or the girl that doesn’t look model-sequel, but has great photos. Lluvy is the girl called, saving herself again, while Noelle heads out after giving all the girls some hugs. Noelle packs her bags and says she can dwell on it and love the experience, or piss and moan that she is one. She says that the next thing for her to see her child, and she has to provide for him. I bet Noelle is a wonderful mom.
Next week, during a windy and wet shoot, Michelle struggles to be confident and not expose her skin. Brittany struggles with finding the bar, and looks like she is going to be a drunken ass. I don’t really have room to talk. Oh well, on that note, how about some rankings? Some girls are really taking control, while other are starting to fall!
