Tyra Mail! "2morrow u r really going 2 blow up. Luv, Tyra." But before the blowing up, Sally Hershberger pays a visit to the girls at their apartment. We've already seen poor Brenda's hideous hair, so this is really kind of gratuitous. Sally directly blames Brenda for not being able to work her hair (which, the problem might be with the hair to begin with, if you ask me) and says she's there to "edge it out." Brenda asks if Sally's going to completely buzz off her hair. Sally replies, "Maybe." Brenda is displeased and Sally retorts, "You're a model! That's what you guys have to do." Tough talk from a woman who is the celebrity twin of Steven Tyler. Commercials.
When we return, Brenda's "edging out" commences. All the girls watch as Sally takes clippers and shaves the sides of Brenda's hair. Just the sides. Angelea is LOVING this. Brenda is not. Sally says it's more "'80s punk" and should look as if Brenda has done it herself. Just what you've always wanted -- a cut from a famous stylist that makes you look like you've taken a Flowbee to your head. Brenda notes that the other girls stayed quiet, and probably figured that she was out for good now. Brenda looks at her hair and all she can say about it is, "Very different." Ah, the ultimate anti-compliment. At least she appears to have gotten some free product. That thing is going to be a bitch to grow out.
The girls head to Times Square, home to throngs of people and jumbotrons. The girls stand before one such jumbotron, where they see Cover Girl Dania Ramirez. She says that being part of the Cover Girl family is awesome. She's not only representing herself, she says, but helping other women to find the tools to be the best that they can be. This is why she's so excited to let everybody know that she's the new face of Cover Girl Clean -- lightweight coverage that works for your skin type. And yours! And yours! And mine. If someone paid me to wear Cover Girl makeup, I guess I probably would, and might even be convinced to act excited about it. Dania comes out to talk to the girls in the flesh. Is she wearing fur? Lord.
She says that in Cover Girl commercial challenges past, it's been all about memorizing the script. But that's not the most important thing -- you want to model in between the lines and let your personality shine through. When you don't have a personality, as is often the case on this show, this all becomes problematic. Dania says that memorizing lines is easy, but delivering personality is what makes you special. For this challenge, each girl has to make a 30-second commercial for Cover Girl Clean. This commercial will be in voice over, so there are no lines to memorize. Rather, the girls will have to embody the Cover Girl attitude with their actions -- staying true to who they are, while appealing to everyone watching. They should just go the route of Molly the Barn Owl, and swallow a rabbit whole on camera. Can you imagine the pellet Angelea would cough up back at the house? Sorry, Easter Bunny.
