Renee is up next, and she’s going to be Joanie from Season 6, and the infamous “pulling out the snaggletooth” incident. Joanie is there to help, and while they take their photos, Jay thinks that Joanie might actually be stealing the shot, even though I think Renee looks great.
Dionne watches a video of Kim making out with Sarah in the limo during Season 5. Dionne tells the camera that she “Ain’t no f***ing lesbo,” calling Kim boyish. Kim walks out and they laugh about it, but it’s clear that Dionne isn’t comfortable. She says she barely kisses her boyfriend, but they start doing their shoot and Dionne gets into it, saying she can’t believe she’s having fun and feels so comfortable.
Once home, the girls find some Tyra mail and discover that tomorrow, someone will be going home! Whitney says that she was in the bottom two weeks in a row now, so the pressure is on. Jael doesn’t think the judges really get her since she’s so complicated, while Jaslene tells the other girls that she doesn’t want to be that girl that starts out strong and then falls. I don’t want her to be either!
The girls file into panel as usual. Tyra reminds them of the prizes and introduces the judges, including Ms. J. who is now wearing seven ruffles and looks like a potato chip, and Matthew Jordon Smith, the girl’s photographer this week. Now, it’s time for individual evaluations, and Whitney is up first!
Whitney steps forward and the judges look at her photo. They like that she’s showing emotion in person, but don’t see it in her photos. She says that she felt that she had energy on set, and gave it her all. The judges aren’t buying it.
Brittany is up next and looks great without her weave. The judges love her photo with the twins and Nigel is impressed. Twiggy is fawning over it too. Nigel says that she posed to match the twins, which was important.
Jaslene is up next and they look at her granola bar photo with Bre. The judges don’t think she is getting stronger and that she needs to find her footing.
Now it’s time for Natasha. When the judges see her photo, they think she’s making flesh eating bacteria look fierce. If you say so! Tyra likes that she is taking their advice and actually using it, as demonstrated by her mouth.
Dionne steps forward and the judges think she looks dumpy. She fixes her shirt and all is well. They look at her photo and Twiggy is in love. Ms. J. think she looks great, even though Dionne admits to being uncomfortable. Matthew says that she was actually his favorite of the day.
Jael is next and when the judges see her photo, they think it’s too “posey” and that in person, she’s a bit robotic. Jael goes on some long rant and nobody can tell what the heck she is saying, including me. Isn’t Natasha supposed to be the girl who is hard to understand? The judges nod their heads and Jael walks away.
Finally, we get to Renee. Twiggy loves her photo this week and Renee says that she tried not to worry and “ugly it up,” but Tyra tells her not to make it too ugly. She wants her to pull it back just a little bit.
Now, it’s time to deliberate, and here’s what the judges had to say about each of the girls:
Dionne is jumping leaps and bounds. She looked great this week and is all-around amazing.
Renee is loved by Twiggy, while Ms. J. feels that it doesn’t take much to make her look old.
Whitney isn’t a model to Twiggy (surprise, surprise) and Tyra adds that when the camera is around her, she is down. Nigel agrees.
Jaslene is just too drag to Matthew, as Tyra and Ms. J. do her famous catalog pose.
Jael drives all the judges crazy with her mouth and Twiggy can’t see her ever getting cast for a job since nobody can understand her.
Natasha has progressed and Nigel really likes her. Twiggy thinks she is becoming very sexy, but Ms. J. thinks that she is a bit packaged.
Brittany is standing out, and really managed to pop in her photo this week.
The girls come back in. Tyra says that there are seven girls, but she only has six photos. The first girl called is Dionne, and Tyra tells her that she is becoming a true model. Natasha is called next, who says “thank God” in Russian. Tyra tells her that she is what the competition is about.
Brittany is called next and Tyra tells her that she needs to have a stronger physical presence. Renee is called, followed by Jaslene, who Tyra says is falling and falling. She wants to see the girl from the first two weeks who was called first.
Only one photo is left, and it either belongs to Whitney or Jael. They hold each other by the waist and Tyra says that they should hold tight, since they both have what the other needs. Tyra tells Whitney she needs to shine when the camera is on her, not just in person. Jael needs to learn how to speak eloquently, like Whitney – she can’t just be pretty. People have to understand her as well.
The final photo goes to – Jael! Whitney takes the news well and Tyra tells her to work it out and keep at it. Whitney hugs the girls and says that she really didn’t think she was going home. She’s sad, and says that any girl who says she didn’t care to win is lying. She feels that modeling might not be her avenue, but since Tyra believes in her, she’ll continue to try it. I saw this elimination coming, so there’s really not much more I can add.
Next week, the girls try out their interview skills on one another, and it looks like Jael will piss Dionne off. Oh, and it’s time for the girls to pack their bags! Here’s how I’m ranking the girls for next week:
