Last week, we saw 33 girls board a ship on its way to the Caribbean, where they would sink or swim! We met Victoria, the girl with the brains and the beauty who wants to win this. Also, we unfortunately met Ebony, who had a terrible, terrible attitude. Finally, we met Heather, a stunning beauty who was diagnosed with a mild form of autism at a young age. Now itís time to see the final 13 girls move into the house. Which one will be sent packing first? Letís see!
We begin with Mila telling the camera that she always thought she could be a model, and canít wait to give it a try. Lisa says that she has been through a lot and knows many different kinds of hurt. Janet wants to get out of her small town and is there to compete. Heather comments that she is sometimes awkward in social situation due to her minor form of autism, but she wants to learn. The seasonís girls are so different!
Jay Manuel greets the girls at a mall, telling them they are in downtown Los Angeles, right in the fashion district. Victoria tells the camera that this is a whole new world for her. The girls follow Jay to their limo bus, which they find out is very ďgreen.Ē Mila says that she supports anything that helps the planet. Jay tells the girls that they will have their first photo shoot the very next day, as he sends them on their way.
The girls arrive at the house and it is also very green. There are pictures of Tyra and Jaslene everywhere. Ebony says that she has to be more reserved for the girls to like her. She doesnít want to be the one everyone hates. Meanwhile, the other girls are jumping in the pool and Lisa says that she has never seen a house like this. Heather is still inside though, as the other girls socialize. She writing poetry.
Kimberly hopes to make the other girls laugh and knows that her sense of humor will set her apart. Bianca says that the winner of the competition wonít be an exotic dancer, referring to Lisa. She feels it just wonít happen. Outside, Chantal sheds a tear because she is so appreciative to be there. Aww.
In the morning, the girls arrive at their shoot and meet up with Jay. He tells them that their first shoot will create awareness on the impact of smoking. Each girl will take two photos. A glamorous photo of them smoking, and their reflection in the mirror will be a side effect of smoking, where they will look really bad.
So the girls go through makeup and Ambreal is up first. Jay loves her posing and comments that her side effect photo is gross Ė which is good! Jenah follows her and comments that she doesnít like smoking, even though she smokes. I donít really care for her so far, to be honest.
Mila is up next and she says she wants it to look fun. Her side effect makeup is making her laugh during her shoot and Jay knows that she is struggling with being emotional. Janet goes next and Jay isnít very impressed.
Chantal goes and I think she looks great. Her reflection photo isnít so great, but Jay seems happy. In the back, Bianca says that Lisa is phony and tries too hard to be someone that she isnít. While this is going on though, Heather and Saleisha are shooting together. Heather has some issues trying, and you can tell that she isnít exactly comfortable, but both of them look great.
Jay thinks that Kimberly is just okay, while Sarah knows that this shoot is one thatís going to matter because someone will go home because of it. Very good, Sarah! Lisa and Bianca are still trading barbs in the makeup room, and you can just tell that there is a fight brewing.
Victoria comments that she is going to have to make up what she is doing as she goes along, since she has no clue what is going on. I think she looks really good though! Ebony struggles and Jay says that she looks like she is on the toilet, but she admits to being nervous. However, she tells Jay that she doesnít want to be hated by the other girls. Jay isnít buying that and wants her to let it all out.
Next up is Bianca and Jay knows that she is holding back. Her reflection photo looks great though. Lisa goes next and her legs are amazing. She tells the camera that she will make it one day Ė she just knows it.
Of course, this is when the fight begins. Lisa walks in the back, saying that she did good. Bianca makes a comment and Lisa tells her that she is full of herself. There is some finger wagging, and Bianca says that Americaís next top model will never be a stripper. Victoria canít believe that they are fighting and compares it to high school. Lisa is now crying, saying that everyone has their ups and down. Jay just peeks his head in and says that he knows a lot is going on right now, so go home and figure out how they are going to get along. What great advice!
Back at the house, Lisa says to Bianca in the hot tub that she wants to squash it. Bianca agrees and apologizes, but tells the camera that she didnít apologize because she wanted to, she only did it so that it doesnít get brought up at panel. Itís allegedly over, but I have a feeling that we havenít seen the last of these two going at it with one another.1 2 3 Next-->
