All the judges think that Eugena had her best photo to date with her Cover Girl photo, but they worry about her lack of personality. Even when they ask her if she wants to be there, they don’t think they are getting anything out of her. As far as MY CariDee, they feel that with her personality, you don’t know what you are going to get. They feel that if she can pull herself together, she will have it down.
Concerning Melrose, the judges don’t feel they got the best photo out of her this time around, but she has been consistently great throughout the competition and has the passion. She’s a perfectionist, but they aren’t sure if she is a natural, the way that Eugena is. Twiggy admits that walking in today, she had a good idea who would be leaving, but now she doesn’t know!
The girls enter the room again. Tyra says that she only has two photos, and they will be the two girls that will compete in a fashion show. The first name called… is MY CariDee, and she’s just as thrilled as I am! She’s happy to hear that she’s a finalist, as Melrose and Eugena step forward. Tyra feels that they are there for different reasons. Melrose took great photos through the competition, but this photo didn’t show that girl. Eugena, however, started out very rough, but about three weeks ago showed some great photos. That being said, the judges still aren’t sure if she wants to be there. The second, and last name called is… Melrose! MY CariDee shakes her head from the side, as Tyra tells Melrose that her photo was not great. Eugena looks at MY CariDee and they share a moment. Melrose is told that she is moving on and Eugena is sent on her way. She gives a hug to MY CariDee, which Melrose joins in on, but Eugena sobs with MY CariDee, who tells her that she will win it for her!
Eugena heads back to the hotel to pack her bags. She hopes that her performance this week spoke for her, and admits that if she didn’t want to be there, she wouldn’t have made it that far. I agree! I hate when Tyra gets rid of girls for “not wanting to be there.” Umm, if she didn’t want to be there, she wouldn’t have applied for the show, or would have said “no” when asked to try out! Ugh! She adds that it really is taking it’s toll on her to be sent home, but she did the best she could do. You know what? I really came to like Eugena! Once Monique was eliminated, she came into her own and I feel she DID show personality! I’m going to miss her and can’t wait to interview her!
The final two girls get back to the apartment, where MY CariDee reads a letter that Eugena left her, saying that a natural blonde needs to win this. She admits that it was sad to see Eugena go, and that she really was a caring girl. It’s time for the battle of the blondes! Tyra Mail tells the girls that she was only 17 when she had to fly off to Paris for her first international photo shoot, so cue Jay Manuel telling the girls that today they will be doing their photo shoot for Seventeen. The winner of the competition’s shoot will be used for a cover and spread! The girls meet the crew and guess what? Jay won’t be there to coach them! Thank the Lord!
MY CariDee goes first and says that she has always loved to be photographed, but was always made fun of because of her skin. The crew sees her as strong and confident, and I agree! Melrose, on the other hand, says that she needs to show some personality. She believes in herself and knows she can do this. The crew feels that she has a very unique look that could work to her advantage.
Right after the photo shoot, the girls get more Tyra Mail. It’s time to see if they have what it takes, and the girls realize that the runway show is right around the corner. First though, Tyra needs to pimp one of her friends. This time, it’s “Life Coach,” Michelle. Oh, give me a break! How old are these girls? I don’t think they need a life coach just yet! MY CariDee meets with Michelle and Tyra first, and she tells them that she can manage the stress of being a top model, since she has dealt with a lot of stress her whole life, and has always been critiqued. She has learned to take control of her self esteem, and has learned to take the sadness inside her and change it into humor.
Melrose says that through the competition, she has come back to who she really is. She tried to fit in with the other girls but just wasn’t being herself. She admits that sometimes she says things that just don’t come out right. Tyra and Michelle ooh and ahh over one another and this segment. Seriously, was there even a point?
The next day, the girls meet up with Jay once again, this time at some kind of cave. He tells them that they will have their final runway show there, and will need to be ghostly brides. Dani will be opening the show, and for their last walk, they will come tearing around the caves, screaming like banshees. Melrose says that she knows she can stand out more than MY CariDee. We see the guests begin to arrive and MY CariDee feels that she is going to win this, and hasn’t spoken a word to Melrose. Tyra greets the girls backstage and gives them some final advice before leaving and joining the rest of the judges. MY CariDee says that this is hers and both girls know that this is their last chance to impress the judges.
It’s now time for the runway show to begin, and I have to admit – it’s very eerie! Dani comes down the long runway first and looks great! Melrose is right behind her, and I have to say that she has the walk down to a tee! The judges seem happy with it as well. MY CariDee is out next and her walk looks great too, although it is a bit stiff. Her pose at the end is great though. As they get back for the first change, it turns into a mad house!
Their second walk down the runway is a bit different. Each girl as to stare at the girl passing her. I love it! Both Melrose and MY CariDee look flawless, and I have to admit that I love the dramatic stare and pause that Melrose and MY CariDee share. However, when they turn to walk away, MY CariDee actually steps on Melrose’s dress and rips a hole in it! Melrose, of course, freaks out. When she gets to the back, Jay has to talk some sense into her, and when MY CariDee tries to apologize and say it was an accident, Melrose doesn’t seem to accept it!
Finally the girls have their third “walk,” which is more like a run. However, we are treated to Ms. J. actually running down the runway first, screaming at the top of her lungs. It’s quite entertaining, but totally unnecessary. This was made for him, though! Melrose is out first and she says she used the craziness from the show to help her with the screaming. Twiggy and Tyra appear to love it. MY CariDee runs out next and looks a bit frantic to me. I love it, but I’m not IN love with it. The judges seem to be okay with it though.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
