When the girls arrive back at the house, Tyra mail is waiting. It says that someone is going home tomorrow. Heather is worried, but she knows that she tried her hardest. She knows that panel might be her last chance to prove to the judges that she belongs to be there. At the commercial break, we find out that Heather is the Cover Girl of the week for like what? The seventh week in a row? Crazy!
It’s now time to see the judges, and Tyra greets them all. She reminds the girls of the prizes and introduces the judges. Ms. J.’s afro is even bigger this week, and I can only wonder what he has living in that thing. Neal Hamil from ELITE model management is also on hand. However, before judging begins, a giant Chinese dragon comes shimmying out. Tyra acts like she has no clue what’s going on, but soon tells the girls that they are going to China, which makes everyone cheer. Then she tells them that only six of them are going to China, since one of them will be eliminated tonight. Way to crush a dream, Tyra!
Jenah is up first. They look at her photo and Nigel loves it. He says it looks like it came straight out of a movie, and Twiggy says it’s great. Ms. J. has nothing but good things to say and Tyra adds that Jenah was posing everywhere.
Heather steps forward and Twiggy loves her photo. Jay says that it looks like she has to go on the toilet, while Tyra adds it was Heather’s worst shoot thus far. She knows that something is missing from Heather, and tells her not to dwell on the past, but to come to panel with a new outlook.
Saleisha is next and Twiggy loves the attitude in her photo. It’s not striking to Nigel, and he doesn’t find her as an inspiration. Tyra wants her to take more chances and Saleisha says that she will take them.
Chantal steps forward and Nigel feels it’s her best photo so far. Twiggy agrees and Tyra says that her legs look so long.
Ambreal is next and she looks good to Nigel, but she’s hiding the garment with her legs crossed. Tyra loves her face and nose, but she’s confused by the look. I love the photo, but I have to admit – you can’t see any of the garment.
Bianca arrives front of the judges and Ms. J. says that in her photo, it looks like she was the one who set the car on fire, and is now asking, “Now what?” Neal feels that she’s showing the dress and looks great.
Lisa brings up the rear (no pun intended). Her pose doesn’t work for Nigel because she has long legs and arms and isn’t showing them. She looks too short and Tyra says it almost looks like she’s 5’8”. Heaven forbid! I’m 5’8” and it works fine for me.
Now it’s time for the judges to deliberate, and here’s what they have to say:
Twiggy loves Jenah and thinks she has all the goods. Neal thinks that she’s one of the best girls left in the competition.
Heather is doing well, but needs to be stronger for Ms. J. He still loves her though. Twiggy loves that nobody looks like her, and Tyra agrees that Heather looks hot.
Saleisha looks good to Nigel even though he really doesn’t think her photo worked. What Neal likes about Saleisha is that she’s real and someone you can hang out with. He really thinks she can develop.
Chantal had a good photo, and didn’t look sweet for once. Neal likes her face, but couldn’t see her being a superstar. Tyra has been thinking for weeks and thinks that Chantal reminds her of Cheryl Teigs. I have no clue what that is all about.
Neal doesn’t see anything special in Ambreal, while Nigel says she’s good at what she does, but he doesn’t think she has the gift of modeling. Twiggy doesn’t like her poses.
Bianca is rising in the ranks to Nigel and Ms. J. says they should keep her around. Neal thinks she is strong and really draws you in with her looks.
Lisa didn’t do so great but is still a favorite for Ms. J. Nigel says he think she is actually getting worse, while Neal adds that she isn’t fresh enough for him. Really? I think she’s the freshest of the bunch, actually!
The girls walk back in the room and Tyra says she has six photos. They are the six girls that will be going to China. The first girl called this week is – Bianca! She got her dream this week! Bianca is followed by Jenah, and then Saleisha, who is shocked that her name is called. Chantal is called next, followed by Heather, who is crying. Aww.
Lisa and Ambreal step forward. Ambreal is smiling as if she knows it’s her. Tyra tells Ambreal that she’s beautiful, and they can kind of see it on film, but she’s not strong enough. She’s a gorgeous girl, but not a model. Lisa is a girl who is obviously a model, but is fading. She only has one photo, and it belongs to… Lisa! Lisa gets her photo and Tyra tells her not to let the stress make her dull. Ambreal hugs the other girls and Tyra, then heads out of the room with a little jig. What the heck is going on?
Ambreal packs her bags, saying she wanted to go to China, but prayed to God and asked him to help her if she is meant to do this. She knows she wants to model, but this just wasn’t for her to win. She made her family proud and knows they will push her to accomplish her dreams.
Next week, the girls will be in China for an adventure of a lifetime. Also, it’s time for a Cover Girl commercial, where it looks like Lisa and Heather will flub again. Isn’t it funny that they kept Heather until this episode? I think it was deliberate. Here’s how I’m ranking the girls for next week:
