The girls compete in the Pauline Quen fashion show, in which Janet tries to become her gown and Bianca feeds off the attention. Kimberly struggles and Saleisha wins a trip to Paris. That made Bianca feel threatened; she thought she did better than Saleisha and should have won. We get to see their fight again, plus some scenes we didn’t see of Chantal coming to Saleisha’s defense. She and Bianca yell in each other’s face for a little while.
Chantal interviews that Bianca was being ridiculous to Saleisha, and she didn’t want Bianca to think she can walk over all the girls. The girls yell at each other some more, though Bianca is mostly just saying “Chantal” over and over, trying to get a word in. Chantal thinks she could Bianca off-guard. She then mocks Bianca’s walk, which cracks Ebony up.
The girls have to pose on a rock wall, which turned out to be Jenah’s forte. Kimberly and Bianca didn’t do so well. Back at the house, Bianca tells Heather, who’s not in a great mood, that she’s (Bianca’s) going home next. Heather is unhappy because she wants to call home, but Kimberly is on the phone. Bianca steps in front of Heather outside the door to the phone room, and Heather snaps at her not to do that, since she was there first. Bianca claims that she’s next, laughing. Heather yells a little and Bianca tells her models are sleeping.
Bianca interviews that she won’t fight with Heather because she’s acting like a 12-year-old. As soon as Kimberly leaves the phone room, Bianca sneaks in. Heather wonders if she’s letting people walk all over her too much. I think Bianca was trying to tease and should have realized that Heather really wasn’t in the mood.
At panel, however, Heather gets her revenge - Bianca’s in the bottom two with Kimberly, the latter of whom is sent home. Kimberly says she did what she saw in magazines, but it didn’t work. She’s disappointed.
The morning after Kimberly’s elimination, Bianca does something or other in the bathroom (I’m not going to ask) that clogs up the toilet. Apparently Janet is the only person in the house who knows how to use a plunger, so she teaches Bianca how to unclog the toilet. Bianca interviews that she likes Janet. I see what’s going on here! It’s like on Top Chef 3, where everyone who befriended Casey was sent home! Everyone - don’t be friends with Bianca! You’ll get eliminated!
The girls head to the salon for their makeovers. Jenah is thrilled and doesn’t care what’s done to her (though she wants a buzz). Ken Paves suggests using Sarah’s hair for someone else. Sarah loves her new cut and wants some rocker tees. Bianca is balded and not happy about it. Ms. J has no sympathy. Bianca realizes that she was shaved for a reason, and now she’s going to work harder. Ms. J puts on Ebony’s weave while Jay puts on some blond hair.
Back at home, Saleisha complains about her new haircut. She cries in a confessional that this experience is really stressful. She pins it back and tries to do something with it, saying this isn’t a cut she would get. She realizes she needs to be confident and rock the hair when she goes to panel. Jenah puts on a red wig and chases Ambreal around with it. Ambreal hates hair because it reminds her of bugs and spider webs. She apparently then flushes the hair down the toilet… which I would think is what clogged it, rather than Bianca. Indeed, Heather is outside the bathroom in the same towel she was wearing in the earlier scene, and Jenah is there with her hair in a shower cap, so nice try, editors, but we’re not idiots.
The girls pose as plants, and Ebony interviews that the last thing she wants to do is go home. She’s going to give it her all from now on. WE GET IT, TYRA. Lisa says that being a stick her whole life has paid off, and now she gets to be a pretty bamboo stick. Victoria thinks she was more spontaneous in past shoots, but this time she feels more pressure to do well, and the consequences aren’t good. Chantal is torn between two directors, feelin’ like a fool, and winds up in tears.
In the first two panels, Victoria mouthed off to Twiggy, and it happens again in her third panel. She’s in the bottom two with Saleisha and is eliminated. She interviews that she came off as abrasive in panel because she was nervous. She says she wasn’t one of the prettier girls there, but she was interesting, which was more important.
Jenah decides to play a prank on Sarah, so while they’re in the hot tub, and Sarah takes off her bathing suit top (and… huh?), Jenah grabs it and runs inside. Sarah doesn’t seem to mind flashing everyone, as she just goes in after Jenah and tries take off Jenah’s top. Bianca and Ambreal are really enjoying the show. Jenah runs back outside, clutching her top and screaming that Sarah scratched her. Saleisha tears outside as Sarah wraps herself in a towel. Jenah interviews that she loves messing around with Sarah. “We saw your boobies!” she sings. Hee. Sarah interviews that she and Jenah bonded by running through the house naked together. Heather missed the show and wonders what just happened.
Benny Ninja teaches the girls to pose on a trampopoline! Tramompoline! Trampoline! Back at the house, the girls play that game where you have to take pieces of paper and then say that many things about yourself. Heather reveals that the bedtime movie she watched as a kid was Terminator 2. Saleisha is scared of spiders. Heather thought she was ugly until she was in high school. Bianca was picked on a lot as a kid, which contributes to her hard exterior. Chantal interviews that Bianca has done a 180 and is really happy now. Jenah says the girls are some of the coolest people she’s ever met, and they’re cooler and more confident than she will ever be.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
