Samantha is up next, as the girl with the bad reputation. The judges don’t think her picture is trampy enough. You heard right. They see some sexy in the poses, but Tyra thinks that Samantha is saying in the photo “I think I’m a ho?” Tyra then goes on to show her how to pose like a ho. This is unreal! Felicia was the jock and the judges think she looks like Tyra. They think she nailed the pose and her face is classic. I agree!
Jael was the nerd and Tyra says that she looks nerdy, but fashionable. Nigel likes it too. Jaslene as the weird girl is critically acclaimed. The judges don’t have a bad thing to say about it and think she’s fabulous, telling the other girls to watch out for her. Jaslene says they are already worried about her, all talking about her when she’s not around. The judges don’t seem to care and tell her to get some tougher skin. I think I’m in love with the crazy judges this season!
Whitney faces the judges next. They look at her “mean girl” photo and tell her to work on the body language. Tyra says it was hard to choose a photo because she didn’t show enough range. Whitney offers up some excuse about having a “mark,” but Tyra casts that aside and shows her some different poses. Then there’s Renee as the class clown. The judges think she had fun, but she admits that it was hard to break through.
Natasha is up last. You can tell in her photo that she was confused, and the judges pick up on that. Tyra even tells Natasha that Jay Manuel thought she was the toughest of all the girls in the history of the show to work with, even harder than Ann from Cycle 3. Natasha says she remembers Ann and she was very pretty. The judges get a good laugh and Nigel says that she takes a negative and turns it into a positive. It’s time for the judges to deliberate! Here’s what they had to say about each of the girls:
Brittany has taken two great photos so far. She looks good on the runway too.
Renee is great in person, but not in her photos yet. Tyra is really touched by her though. For what reason, I have no clue!
Whitney reminds the judges of a housewife, and Tyra thinks she’s would really benefit from a makeover.
Cassandra needs to model better in the face. She has it down with her posing.
Natasha has the talent, but doesn’t know how to use it yet.
Diana needs more energy in her photos and more posing in the face.
Jaslene had the best photo of the bunch, but she can’t worry about what the other girls are saying about her.
Sarah doesn’t do it for Twiggy and reminds her of a bird. Uh-oh, when Twiggy doesn’t like someone, that’s it for them!
Samantha is one of the best looking girls, but she’s lacking a personality, which is major.
Jael did better this week, but they still have no clue where she’s coming from, and to be honest, neither do I!
Dionne is saucy and went for it, but Roy thinks that she is just average.
Felicia is beautiful and has a lot to offer. Twiggy is going to keep her eye on Felicia, while Tyra says that her shoot looks like Keese’s from Cycle 1. I told you!
The girls walk back into the judging room. Tyra says that there are 12 girls in front of her, but she only has 11 photos. The first name this time around is the first name from last time – Jaslene! She had the best photo for two weeks in a row. Felicia is called second, followed by Diana, Renee, Brittany, Cassandra, Dionne, and Jael, who I swear to God is crazy!
Whitney is called next, followed by Sarah, who I can’t believe was so low on the totem pole! Samantha and Natasha step forward. There’s only one photo left, and the girl that isn’t called will need to head back, pack her bags and leave.
Tyra tells both girls that they have the strongest faces of the bunch. Samantha takes nice photos, but seems like she is only 15, and they think that in three years she would be ready. Natasha has the face, but can’t seem to translate that face into a good photo. Is she photogenic or just a pretty girl? Who goes home? The girl with the good photos and a lacking personality or the girl with the stunning face who can’t trap it on film?
The final photo goes to… Natasha! Tyra tells her that she is getting her photo because in here, they see life – they see a story. Basically, that means they see drama. Tyra says that the wonderful thing about this competition is that it’s about more than just photos – Samantha is told that she needs a little more time, and then sent on her way.
Samantha packs her bags back at the house. She says she’s not very outgoing and she’s not off-the-wall like Jael. She’s simple, and that’s how she was raised. It’s a plus that she’s going home, because she knows that God has a plan for her. Yawn! What a boring girl.
Next week, Tyra gets a makeover shocker of her own – she’s getting her weave cut! Looks like Tyra waited an episode this season to give the girls makeovers. Tempers flare with Renee and Brittany, culminating with Brittany telling Renee that she’s “beating her ass in the competition.” Can’t argue with the truth… and Jael will be getting some tragic news from home. Here’s how I’m ranking the girls for next week:
