So Lisa basically drags Heather out by her hair to the photo shoot, where she meets the photographer and Mary J. Blige. Wow, two celebrities for Heather in one day! They spray tan her and get her this wrap thing, and she looks great! The photographer gives her some tips that she really thinks she can use, and Mary gives her a little talk. I love that in the end, Heather gives Mary J. a hug and Mary looks like she’s about to cringe until she vomits. I adore it.
At the house, the girls read Tyra mail that tells them some models never wear the same outfit twice, but until that’s them, they will have to recycle their outfits. The girls automatically think they will be wearing trash, since they are on this big recycle kick in the house. In the meantime, though, the girls cook wings and pizza and have a slumber party in the big closet. Ebony decides that this is the best time to tell the girls that she wants to be sent home, since she misses her family and friends. Smart. Bianca just says that she’s focusing on her eyes and working the mirror.
Heather comes home around 1:00 a.m., and the girls are settling in for bed. She talks about the shoot and Saleisha tells her that she loves Carol’s Daughter, so if there’s something Heather doesn’t want, she’ll take it! Bianca is baffled that Heather does so well and doesn’t even try. She knows that Heather is her biggest competition, but is ready to win.
The girls arrive at their photo shoot the next day, and Jay Manuel tells them that when one of them becomes a top model, they will have to give back. This week, the girls will each be a different recycled material – but here’s the twist – it will be high fashion! I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m SHOCKED that the twist is high fashion! After meeting the photographer, the girls head to hair and makeup.
Heather is up first and she’s aluminum cans. I do see her giving a lot of face-on shots, which is good. Jay is surprised, too, and says she did a great job. Chantal is shredded paper, and seems like she is having a good time.
Sarah is trash bags this week and Jay is loving her creativity. I’m not a fan of her set, but I do like her little trash bag dress. Saleisha is car parts, and when she wiggles around the set, she almost breaks it. I’m really not caring for her new look – her hair makes her look like a dog!
Ebony is up next and she’s bubble wrap. I don’t get the outfit. Jay tells her to be happier. He’s beginning to think that she looks like a tramp, and when the shoot is done, I love that Ebony doesn’t even really care about what he has to say – she thought she was working it! Jenah is cardboard and Jay thinks she did amazing. He thinks that Jenah really takes what the judges say and applies it.
Bianca is up next and she’s oil. They sure do make her look greasy! Jay loves her eyes and we see that the practice is paying off, since Jay asks her where she learned the whole “smile with your eyes” look. Lisa is plastic bottles and I can say I’m finally feeling her new look – when her hair isn’t curled.
Ambreal is last and she is portraying newspaper. She doesn’t want to be in the bottom two again, and Jay tells her that she’s looking inexperienced. When it’s all said and done, Jay feels the whole thing was pretty boring. He then tells Ambreal that he loved her at first, but she’s still going down, which makes Ambreal frustrated and cry to the camera. I have to agree with Jay, though, as much as it pains me!
Tyra mail is waiting at the house. It says that someone is going home tomorrow, and Heather isn’t sure who it will be at this point. Ambreal just hopes she has one good photo, since she has her heart in the competition and wants to prove herself, while Ebony admits that she tried her best, but is praying and hoping that she’s the one sent home. She can’t take the criticism, so I ask – why did you apply for the show?
The girls walk into the judging room and Tyra welcomes them. The judges are introduced and Nigel has a fake afro on, which he takes off when he is introduced – thank goodness. Tyson is back again as well, so the girls are already swooning, and I’m already gagging.
Saleisha is up first and the judges love her photo. Nigel thinks that it’s her second best of the season so far and Tyra can’t get over how much neck she is showing. Jenah steps forward and her look is dusted and cleaned off. Finally, she looks like a model! The judges adore her photo and think that it has attitude. I think her head looks disconnected from her shoulders!
Ambreal is next and they think she looks dead in the eyes. She tries to blame her fake eyelashes, but Tyra’s not having that. Jay had nothing positive to say and the judges think that she’s not the girl who started the competition. Lisa is next and Nigel says that it’s not one of his favorites from her. Jay Manuel said she took risks, but Tyra thinks that her risks are still too obvious, and wants her to experiment more.
Bianca steps forward and Ms. J. says that her oil shot is good, but he wants more movement in her body. Nigel says the face is stunning and Tyra loves that she practiced with smiling in the eyes. Sarah was garbage bags and Twiggy says that she likes it, after making a snide comment to Sarah first about not looking like a model in person. Of course, Nigel brings up the weight thing again, saying he thinks she lost some. Sarah looks very confused, and I don’t blame her. Maybe she did lose weight – since I hear the production crew runs the girls ragged! [Assistant Editor’s note: She’s probably also confused because they keep talking about it after the girls leave the room, so she doesn’t know that they think it’s a problem. If they want her to stop losing weight, they’d better actually tell her!]<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
