Okay, so we need a winner, right? Queen says that some of them did a really good job, but the winner is – Eugena! She used the most color and really applied and accented well. Isn’t it a bit of a wash that the girl who won the competition is African-American? I mean, it was made pretty clear that the Queen Collection is geared towards African-American women, so my question is: Did any girl besides Eugena, Monique, and maybe Jaeda have a chance of winning this? I think not! Anyway, I digress. Eugena is allowed to choose two friends and she picks CariDee and Jaeda. The three of them will have a Cover Girl photo shoot before the girls’ next challenge, which will be posted on the Cover Girl website. Not bad at all!
The girls pile in the limo and head home, and most of the girls note that they are avoiding Monique since she looks so pissed. Megg is disappointed that she didn’t even get to meet Queen. Monique walks into the house and straight to the phone. Melrose tells the camera, and the other girls, that she needs to get on the phone with her landlord at home soon, since she is trying to get back a deposit on her apartment. An hour and a half later, Monique is still on the phone, talking trash to her mom about everyone. The other girls are a little annoyed and try to get her attention. Of course Monique doesn’t care, and actually sticks her head out the door, saying: “I just LOVE this phone call!” Two and half hours have now passed, and Monique is still on the phone. Her mother tells her: “When they mess with a child of God, they are punished. You are a princess on the throne!” Okay, Monique’s mom is just as crazy as she is! Anchal, who is quickly rising in the ranks in my book, actually storms in the room and hangs up on Monique’s call. They get in one another’s faces, ending with Monique saying that she’s not there to make friends. She stays on the phone for another hour, even though she isn’t talking to anyone. Finally, she comes out when nobody is around, proclaiming to the house that the phone is free. Wow, this girl has balls!
We see some of the girls talking trash on Monique, saying that they plan on ignoring her. Monique feels that she’s being disrespected and will have none of it. Oh yeah, hogging the phone for almost three hours isn’t disrespecting anyone. Refusing to help clean the house isn’t compromising? Monique really needs to check herself. I can’t believe I thought I was going to like her! “Tyra Mail” arrives and tells the girls to be amped for tomorrow, since they will need to be edgy. Aren’t they always edgy?
Moving right along, the girls arrive at the Siren Studio for their photo shoot. Jay is waiting there for them, but first pulls out Eugena, the challenge winner, along with CariDee, and Jaeda. They have their own mini shoot first for Cover Girl. Eugena says that she doesn’t care if the other girls are jealous, since this is her time to shine. However, with that out of the way, it’s time to find out what the REAL photo shoot this week is.
Jay informs the girls that the three people doing their hair this week have been specially flown in to give them some crazy, outrageous styles. The theme for the photo this week is “Do you wear the hair, or does the hair wear YOU?” Three “weavologists” walk into the room, including, and I’m not kidding, “Weavin’ Steven.” He’s obviously straight. The girls get a preview of what their weaves will look like, and it is crazy!
The first girl in front of the camera this week is Monique, who actually has a spinning trophy on top of her head. In true Monique fashion, she complains about the fan blowing, which the photographer won’t shut off. She likes that the other girls watch her, since it helps her perform. Jay actually seems pleased too. Anchal is told that her look is really working for her. Why did I rank her as the next to go last week? Jay tells Brooke to be more crazy and zany, and while Amanda has a very red motif as a weave, Michelle is basically dressed up like Toucan Sam, but it looks great!
Megan gets spinning Princess Leia buns in her hair, and it looks strange. Besides, in a photo, how the heck would we know they were spinning? Jay tells her that she needs to look more vulnerable. Megg, on the other hand, is told to be more “quirky.” A.J. seems to do well, while Eugena is giving off a bit too much attitude. CariDee is told by Jay that she’s being powerful, and then we have Melrose, who Jay feels really redeemed herself. Jaeda is the last to go this week and she admits that when she tried to focus, she got angry, which is showing in her photos. I really do think Jaeda is one of the most beautiful girls this season! However, Jay sees no change of expression or emotion in any of her photos.
The girls arrive back at the house after the photo shoot, “Tyra Mail” is waiting for them. Tomorrow they will meet with the judges and one of them will be sent home! While the mail is being read, Monique rubs her hands on her boobs underneath her towel and then on Melrose’s face! Melrose, rightfully, is grossed out. She says it smelled like egg or spoiled pumpkin. Jaeda says that all the girls want Monique gone, and really hope that she is sent packing.
One by one, the girls file into the judging room. Tyra reminds them of the prizes and introduces the judges once again, including special guest judge, Tracy Bayne, who was the photographer for their last shoot. Tracy has done other work on the show, including the horoscope photo shoot for Cycle 4 and the falling fairytale shoot from Cycle 6. Wow, both of those were two of my favorite shoots on the show, so I’m excited to see what she turns out with the “Weavalicious” photo shoot!
Melrose is up first. The judges like her new makeover, and feel the blonde hair makes her look fresh and young. They look at her photo and Ms. J. loves the movement. Tyra likes the poses that Melrose used, and really feels that she went for it. Anchal is up next, and Twiggy feels that her new look is very modern, and she feels the same about her photo this week. I have to admit, Anchal is really beginning to grow on me. The girl is out of the world beautiful!
Jaeda steps forward, and Tyra tells her that it’s clear that Jaeda doesn’t own her look yet, and she wants her to handle it better. The judges look at her photo and feel that she is too aggressive. Megg stands before the judges and they love her hair. However, in her photo, the judges feel that her under bite is starting to come out. I don’t see it, but whatever. CariDee tries to impress the judges with the wet look, but she did it incorrectly. As far as her photo, Ms. J. loves that she is showing neck. I can already tell that CariDee is Ms. J’s favorite this season. He never has anything bad to say about her.
Eugena is up next. She pulls her hair up and the judges love it. Twiggy doesn’t like her photo this week though, and feels it’s a bit too masculine. Tyra adds that it’s the only photo from Eugena that even gave expression. Tracy says that Eugena was a “know it all” on set, so there was nothing she could do to help her. However, Tyra notes that Eugena won this week’s challenge. Michelle steps up and is told that her new look makes her look contemporary – they love it. Her picture this week is loved by all the judges as well. Amanda gets mostly the same kind of praise.
Everyone agrees that Brooke looks great with the brown hair. They think her photo this week is “good” but she is beginning to look a bit “cutesy.” Megan’s new blonde hair makes her eyes pop. At least, that’s what the judges say. Twiggy thinks that Megan’s photo this week is a bit “funny ‘50s magazine.” What the hell does that mean? Ms. J. wants more neck and Tyra says that Megan had the weakest shot of the bunch this week. That can’t be good!<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
