Ten beautiful young ladies stand before Tyra, but she only has nine photos in her hands. These represent the nine who are still in the running to become America's Next Top Model. The first model called, who also has the best photo of the week, is Alasia! For the second week in a row! Raina is called next, followed by Tatianna, Brenda, Alexandra, Angelea, Jessica, and Krista. This leaves Anslee and Simone in the bottom two. Anslee has amazing bone structure, but her last few photo shoots have the judges nervous. The photos are falling flat. And the judges do not like excuses. Then there's Simone, who also has strong potential. She's been given the critique to really push, but it doesn't come across in her photos. She seems to be stuck inside of herself. So who stays in the competition? It's Anslee. Oh, boo. I really enjoyed Simone. Anslee tearfully accepts her photos, and takes responsibility for her own failings with a humble, "Yes, ma'am." Tyra hugs Simone and tells her that she needs to do testing galore when she gets home, and study her film. She tells Simone that this is an industry for her, and she shouldn't give up. It's true that Simone is totally gorgeous, and seems like she should be a good model. She packs up and says that she's disappointed, and feels like she didn't use her tools to be successful to the fullest. She's going to take Tyra's advice and focus on modeling, because she still has time. She plans to get more comfortable in front of the camera. Simone heads down the street with her suitcase, looking fly as she goes.
Next week: Jessica gets flirty with Nigel, and Anslee misses her daughter a whole bunch.
