Okay, so last week, in the “shocking episode of the season,” we saw Michelle tell the other girls that she wasn’t sure if she was a lesbian or not. Meanwhile, her sister Amanda shut down to everything around her. A red carpet challenge with Janice Dickinson flustered most of the girls and at the photo shoot, but Melrose was stunning. However, it was A.J. that couldn’t hide her indifference, and when the judges felt she didn’t want to be there, her attitude sent her packing. We’re down to eight, so let’s see who gets the boot next!
We begin with the girls eating pizza. Eugena is in the confessional venting about the other girls: Jaeda never stops crying, MY CariDee can’t keep her clothes on, Melrose is a backstabbing bitch, Anchal is too insecure, etc. Coincidently, we hear from Anchal next, and she’s talking about her weight. Brooke is in the other room, opening a package she received from home, which has her diploma. Apparently, she missed graduation and prom to be on the show, but she admits that it’s a sacrifice that she made, and she’s happy that she is there.
The next day, Melrose walks outside to the backyard and finds photo shoot equipment set up. A woman, Elyssa, welcomes Melrose and says it’s time for a photo shoot. Out comes Tyra, who is the photographer! She tells Melrose that this is going to be a black and white photo and very edgy. Angry… almost evil. Each girl will get contacts as well, to illuminate their eyes. Melrose does her thing, as does Brooke.
Eugena gets some cat eyes, and Tyra thinks she got the shot on the first try. Michelle asks some questions, and Tyra loves it. Of course, Jaeda is complaining about her contacts and saying that she doesn’t like to look freaky. Shut up, Jaeda… I used to like you!
Amanda is a bit nervous, but Tyra has a little talk with her which seems to help. Here comes Anchal, who is already amazed that Tyra is directing her. MY CariDee is last, and she looks great! Tyra seems to love her, and I love it, too!
The girls get Tyra Mail which asks if they are ready to flaunt their assets. They pile into the limo and arrive at their destination. Out comes Sutan, their makeup artist, in drag. They are told that they will learn to be sexy, as they meet up with Dita Von Teese, a burlesque performer who is also married to Marilyn Manson. Brooke is already hoping that they won’t have to strip, since her dad will kill her. Honey, you already posed naked!
Dita tells the girls not to be sleazy, and to give a tease. Pop some hip, you know! Anchal is the first girl to start with her prop, a sunflower. She looks so insecure and Dita can tell. Michelle says she isn’t used to doing this kind of thing, but gets some tips. Melrose is a bit over the top, according to Anchal, while Eugena is admired for her body.
Jaeda is complaining about her hair as usual, saying that she feels naked without it. I wish this girl would seriously get over it. Amanda seems to do a good job, and Dita seems impressed. MY CariDee does her thing and even though she’s a little over the top, there’s no denying that she’s sexy. Brooke is up next and admits that she isn’t normally seductive, but she’s trying hard, even though she’s having a tough time. The girls finish up and are told that on their next shoot, they better think about how sexy they can be… and show off their best!
So the girls head home, where Jaeda is complaining about – guess what? If you said “hair,” you’re right! She felt that when she lost hair, she lost her personality. Eugena just wishes Jaeda would shut up about it, since she looks better. Amen, Eugena! She also tells the camera that she can’t wait for another girl to go so that she can be less confused. Tyra Mail arrives and references “mom,” so I’m already praying Tyra’s mom doesn’t show up. It also says that you’re supposed to keep your elbows off the table, but there’s nothing that says feet can’t be on.
The girls arrive at their next destination, where Cathy Gould, the director of Elite Management, is waiting for them. With her is Kylie Bax, a present-day supermodel. I’ve never heard of her. Apparently, there will be a private party that evening where the girls will need to walk on the table in sexy clothing and jewelry.
I’m not going to bore you with this challenge, since it really is probably the most boring challenge ever. Basically, they walk on a dinner table. Nobody falls, so it’s not very exciting. Anchal is conscious about her weight, but what else is new? The winner ends up being Melrose, who picks Brooke, Amanda, and Michelle to join her for a photo shoot for Seventeen. Whoop de doo! Melrose knows that this win will isolate her further from the other girls, but she doesn’t seem to care.
Everyone gets back to the house where more Tyra Mail is waiting. The whole thing is very sexy, dramatic, and sensual. The girls head to their shoot in the limo and meet up with Jay Manuel. He tells the girls that there is a fine line between sexy and sleazy, and for this shoot, they will be walking that line. They will each be on the cover of a romance novel, each drawing their cover from a different storyline.
