Tyra now tells each girl to step up and say which girl has the potential to win the competition, and which girl has the least amount of talent. Keenyah says that Brittany and Kahlen have the most, and Naima is the worst since she is bland. Brittany says that she should be the next top model, but Keenyah has the most talent based on her personality, and Christina is the worst. Christina feels that Brittany is the weakest since she only has one look and that Kahlen is the strongest. Kahlen says Keenyah is the strongest girl and Christina is the weakest. Hmm, this is the Christina that is supposed to be one of Kahlen’s best friends. Naima says Kahlen is the strongest and agrees that Christina is the weakest right now, but with time could be great.
Gosh, this is brutal! Tyra tells them that she appreciates their honesty and courage, since they will need it to succeed in the real world. Now it’s time for the judges to evaluate their shots. Keenyah had a level of cattiness in her critiques, and as far as her picture, they liked the face but not the body. Christina gave good critiques, but she was too much of a robot. Christina isn’t sure where confidence meets cold. Tyra likes her shot, noting that the “hunchback” look is what’s in right now. Nigel isn’t a fan though. Naima looked gorgeous, but Nole’ feels like she is an egg that needs to be cracked open. Naima just says that she doesn’t want to be that angry girl that she once was. Janice says that she wants to get to know her, and they all agree that she had a good picture this week, but she needs to work on the face, since she never wants to look directly at the camera.
Kahlen is told she did well with her critiques, and her face is angelic in her shot, but she didn’t have that many great photos this week, which is unlike her. Brittany is told she is too nonchalant about the whole thing and her critiques were horrible. However, they absolutely love her shot this week and nobody has anything negative to say. With that, it’s time for the judges to deliberate.
Nole’ says that he hated Naima’s shot this week, but Nigel goes to bat for her and says he loves her again. Christina might need lip surgery, says Nole’, but Tyra says she has a classic beauty. Kahlen looks great, and Nole’ loved her insight with her critiques this week. Keenyah has the confidence, but her photo this week wasn’t the greatest. Brittany looks amazing, but she’s not progressing during this process. Tyra says that Janice just loves her because she looks like her from years ago, with Nole’ pointing out that she looks like Janice’s “first face.” Me-ow! Janice basically goes on a rant calling Nole’ short and fat. Good times ensue.
The girls walk back into the room. Tyra says that each week they come in and the judges critique them, so it was refreshing to turn the tables. Five girls are left, but Tyra only has four photos. They belong to the four girls that will remain in the competition. The first girl called is Naima, and Tyra tells her that she is proud of her because they finally got to see the true Naima. Keenyah is called next, and told that she is on thin ice because she is being “too safe.” Kahlen is the next girl called, and Tyra tells her that she is so meek, but she has an opinion, but this was one of her worst shoots to date.
Brittany and Christina step up. Tyra only has one photo left, and the girl not called has to pack her bags and head home. She says that both of the girls have great photos. One of the girls (Christina) probably has the heart and soul of an angel, but the judges see someone that’s cold and icy. The other girl (Brittany) is full of life and character, but there is a time for play and a time for work, and this girl isn’t showing enough progression. Brittany is the girl that’s called, and she gets her picture. Christina gives everyone their hugs and heads out. She feels that she’s not a cold person and wanted a chance to show the judges the warmer side of her. She learned some huge lessons, and will grow from the experience and move from there.
I can’t help but feel that the other girls had a say in Christina going home, by three of them noting that she was the weakest girl there. I’d have to disagree and say right now the weakest is probably Keenyah or Brittany, even though I love them both. Could it be that they saw Christina as a threat, and targeted her? After all, Kahlen goes and tells Christina that she’s one of her best friends left in the competition, then singles her out as the weakest girl. Same thing goes for Naima. With friends like that, why have enemies? I don’t like the way that went down.
Next week, only four girls are left, and nerves start to crack. Kahlen is scared of something, and tempers start to flare. Friendships are torn apart, as we see Brittany and Keenyah getting into an argument. This can’t be good. Here’s how I’m ranking the girls, going into the final four:
