Anchal is ready and thinks she is going to do well, as we see the girls head up on the pedestals. Brooke says that she was shaking and CariDee knows that she has to knock this out of the box. Eugena goes for poses that compliment her shape, and Melrose thinks that she has this one locked up. Bao says that Jaeda could have been softer and Megg admits that she is playing it safe.
When the girls file back in, they are told by Bao that the winner is Eugena, and she wins all the jewelry that the girls were wearing, totaling up to $34,000. Eugena says that she didn’t come to the house with any jewelry since back at home they don’t have many shops like that. Melrose gripes about how she could have improved and CariDee just shakes her head. Megg says that she just wants to tell Melrose to shut up and A.J. tells the camera that Melrose just likes to hear herself talk.
Back at the house, the girls wait in a room in which Tyra joins them. She wants to talk about fears and asks the girls if anyone feels insecure. Melrose talks about being 23 and putting off school and Jaeda talks about her hair. Tyra says that her short hair is a compliment and shows off her bone structure. Melrose laughs about the other girls and says that they should never let anything that she says have an effect on them. She knows she needs to gain patience and Anchal admits that she overheard the girls talking about her. Tyra says that when you have a problem, you should not keep it bottled up. I’m so glad that Tyra is also a therapist. You’re not Oprah, honey! Jaeda tells the camera that Anchal is being fake and knows she is pretty. Tyra says goodbye and Melrose says that she just hopes the other girls don’t see her as this horrible person. Too late for that!
Tyra Mail arrives once again and reads that models aren’t always the prettiest girls. In fact, sometimes they are freaks of nature. The next day, the girls get into the limo and drive two hours to a location set up like an old time circus. Think Natalie Merchant’s video for “Kind and Generous.” Jay Manuel greets the girls and tells them that their photo shoot this week will be based on a turn-of-the-century circus freak show. It will be dark and moody.The girls get their assignments, and they are as follows: Megg will be portraying the bearded lady. Jaeda is the strong woman. A.J. will be a cannibal. Anchal is going to be a giant. CariDee will be the “elephant woman.” Eugena will portray the “bird lady.” Brooke is going to be the rubber girl. Melrose has to be the girl with the great body and old face. I never heard of that one! Finally, we have the twins, who of course, will be Siamese twins.
The girls go through hair and makeup, and in the middle, Jay calls them out of the trailer to introduce them to Atoosa Rubenstien, the editor of Seventeen magazine. She will be watching the girls during their photo shoot, and A.J. is up first. She says the shoot is twisted, just like her. As she poses, it seems like Jay is falling in love.
Brooke is the rubber girl but has some issues with posing. Jay says she needs to look more elongated.
The twins, Michelle and Amanda, are joined at the head, and although they start off looking a bit awkward, Jay feels that they worked it out in the end and really look intertwined.
Megg is the bearded lady and Jay says that she was disappointing again. Megg leaves the shoot knowing that when she thinks too much about her posing, she becomes a crashing plane.
CariDee is the elephant woman and her posing is great! Jays says she looks amazing and her posing is strong.
We don’t get to see much of Eugena, but she looks to be doing a good job as the bird lady.
Anchal is the giant, and she is freaking out. Jay thinks that once she gets her groove, though, she came back hardcore.
Jaeda is the strong woman, but Jay worries that he can’t pull her out of her shell, and that he’s spending so much time coaching her. It’s hard to direct her and tell her how to pose.
Finally, there’s Melrose, who is giving a variety of poses and making Jay very happy. He praises her after the shoot, which is all her big head needs. The shoot wraps up and the girls head home for the night.
When the girls get home, Tyra Mail is waiting for them. Someone is going home tomorrow after they meet with the judges. Megg says that she knows she is probably in the bottom this week, but isn’t ready to go home. Anchal feels good, but all the girls are taking good pictures, so anyone could go home. Jaeda has been having different thoughts and feels that she might be leaving this week.
One by one, the girls file into the judging room. Tyra says that for the first time this season, all the girls are dressed like real models. They are reminded of the prizes and introduced to the judges as usual, including guest judge Atoosa Rubenstein.
Tyra says that this week the girls learned about editorial posing. Using this, they needed to portray circus freaks. A.J. is up first. They look at her photo and feel it’s strong with great body language. She shows intensity.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
