That night, the chef arrives and cooks the girls a big fishy meal. Eugena says that she doesn’t care that she didn’t win the challenge or get picked by Melrose, especially since she’s grossed out by the menu selection and doesn’t like the smell. Tyra Mail arrives, telling the girls that it’s time to shoot with a bull!
As they file into the stadium, MY CariDee says that shooting with a bull in Spain is like shooting with a cheesecake in New York – it’s expected! What the hell does that mean? I love it! Jay Manuel comes out in a matador costume and Eugena says that he doesn’t look like a matador – he looks like Jay in a matador costume. Oh my God, I really do love this girl so much more now! Jay says that the girls will be shooting with a bull… and out comes Nigel Barker! Also, to give the photo shoot some real edge, there will be a real bull as well! Melrose is already scared, saying that it’s intimidating to being shot by one of the judges.
The girls and Nigel watch the bull run around the stadium and MY CariDee says to Nigel, who is holding a stick: “Did you remove that from your a** from last panel?” obviously trying to be funny. It doesn’t go over too well though, since Nigel just looks at her and walks away. All the girls looked shocked but I really don’t think MY CariDee meant it to be insulting. That’s just her personality!
After hair and make up, Jay pulls the girls aside and tells them all that MY CariDee’s comment was not acceptable, and that they need to be aware of what they say in the future to people that might hire them. MY CariDee tells the camera that she was joking and that’s just her humor. Now she is worried about how the photo shoot will go. Melrose says that it’s better to have someone like Nigel on your side than against you. You think?
Amanda is already nervous as she steps onto the shoot site with Eugena, who will be going first. The girls are told that if they are told to run, don’t panic, and just run out of the way of the bull. What great advice. Each girl is given a stick which will have a cape photo shopped onto it in production. Eugena starts off great and Nigel comments on the risks she is taking. He likes that she is trying and when she wraps up, Jay comments that she used her fear in order to help her, instead of just being scared.
Amanda says that she is more nervous about Nigel shooting her than she is the bull. In the middle of her shoot, Jay tells her that she is looking too distant, and that one half of her body is modeling, while the other isn’t. Where does he come up with this stuff? Amanda finishes and heads to the back, where Michelle asks her how she did, what went wrong, etc. Amanda, at this point, is beginning to get annoyed, as Michelle steps out to go next. Nigel feels inspired by Michelle and her poses, while Jay feels that Michelle wasn’t do so well at first, but really sold him in the final 20 frames.
Melrose is up next and Nigel feels that she is being too delicate at first, but she is working to impress him. He felt that she posed her a** off, but really wasn’t the star of the day, as he expected her to be. Finally, we have MY CariDee, who blesses herself before the shoot. She poses pretty well but seems a bit “pin up” to Jay. Nigel thinks she is being too over the top, and when her shoot wraps, she apologizes to Nigel for the comment she made. She feels that she did poorly during the shoot and says there really is a chance that she’s done at this point.
When the girls get home, there is Tyra Mail waiting for them, informing the girls that it’s time to meet with the judges tomorrow and that someone will be going home. Amanda knows that the judges will be tough on her, while Eugena tells the camera that Amanda and MY CariDee are probably in the most trouble. Michelle says that she wants this, but she isn’t sure if she has it in her, while Amanda admits that Michelle will probably be staying, and although that makes her happy, it makes her worried since she might be the one sent home.
Like soldiers, the girls march into the judging room. Tyra, as usual, reminds them of the prizes and introduces the judges, including Pancho Saula, the director of Elite in Barcelona and Ms. J., who for some odd reason has his hair in an up-do. I’m not exaggerating. Their test this week will be to face the judges and tell them which of the remaining five girls has the most potential and who has the least potential. Yeah, because this won’t cause enemies or drama, will it?
Melrose is up first and says that she thinks she has the most potential, and the least is probably Eugena, since she never talks and says how badly she wants it. Of course, Eugena thinks that she has the most potential since it’s been a different kind of struggle for her, comparing it to a journey. Tyra’s eyes light up as if God just game down from the heavens, since she always calls the experience as a “journey.” Major brownie points for my girl, Eugena! She says that Amanda has the least potential because she is never beaming.
Amanda feels that Eugena probably has the most potential and MY CariDee has the least, since her look is very standard and she’s too “country.” Finally, we have Michelle, who says that MY CariDee has the most potential, not necessarily because of her look, but because of her personality. She then breaks down and says that the weakest sometimes could be herself, saying that when Brooke went home, she felt so bad knowing how much she wanted to win, and isn’t sure if she has the energy to commit and win this thing. Michelle isn’t sure how to be confident, as she steps back to the other girls, she gets a “Thanks, Michelle” from MY CariDee.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
