There are eight beautiful ladies and seven commercial screen-grabs. Tyra tells them that as a group they were so weak that the judges were forced to go on at length about how dreadful they are. But there was one person who stood out. The best commercial of the week is that of Grandma Celia. A vat of prunes for her! Natalie is called next, followed by Teyona and her scary clown smile, Fo, London, and Aminat. This leaves Allison and Tahlia in the bottom two. Two lovely ladies, one photo. Allison is one of the most editorial high-fashion girls in the bunch, but she also only has one face, even when that face is making expressions and talking in a commercial. Then there's Tahlia. She has such a strong look for Cover Girl, and an easy, breezy, beautiful face. The still photography camera loves her, but the judges aren't sure if she loves the camera. So who stays? Allison. Tyra hands Allison her photo and tells her to get some damn personality. Tyra advises Tahlia to be in love with the process if she wants to be a model. Tahlia exit interviews that her biggest challenge is getting over herself and her timidity. She held back in the competition, and that's what killed her in the end. However, at the same time, it's who she is. Drip pride! Tahlia gives herself credit for inspiring at least one person and hopefully more. No matter what, she says, she's a role model in someone's eyes. It's a big deal to be in the competition as a burn survivor, and it's opened someone's eyes. Not Teyona's! In any case, I hope that Tahlia is very happy not modeling.
Next week: the girls become creative directors, and Ciara shows up at the model house!
