Jay comes and gives Brenda a pep talk before she goes on set. She says that it helped to some extent, but she was still freaking out. However, once she felt C.J. holding her hand, she calmed down. Oh, God, and then she says, "It was almost like a romance started between us. I felt my emotion for the photo shoot was that I was in love with him." Well, at least she didn't use the word "lover" anywhere in that soliloquy. Jay says that Brenda found a way to embody the spirit of the shoot, and made it work for her. Tatianna is up next, and wastes no time in getting her hands and legs all bloody. She smears blood everywhere. She says that, having embalmed bodies, she's already seen and touched blood. She doesn't feel particularly nervous or squeamish. In fact, she might be a little too into it, as evidenced by the moment when she tastes the fake blood that all of those other bitches have been splashing around in. Vampire cooties!
Then there's Raina, who of course is amazing at everything. Anslee's first several shots feel a bit "romance novel," which is a shoot from another season. Anslee thinks that she did well, and that she stayed in the light and emphasized her neck. She says that Jay's pleased, and was impressed to see her come out of her shell. Jay tells Simone that she was a bit lackluster last week. She interviews that on camera, you have to be about ten times as exaggerated as you would be in real life. And yet, she's a total dud as her shoot starts. She's precariously balanced on the tub, and has dead-face in the bad way. Jay tells her to take it to the extreme, and to get in a position that's sexy rather than a position where it looks like she's died in childbirth. He's not sure how far he can push Simone until she comes crashing down. Finally, Simone kind of gets it and turns up the intensity. With that, the girls get to head home and take a long, hot shower before retiring to their crypts.
Back at the house, there is Tyra Mail. Someone is getting the boot. Anslee thinks she did awesome at her shoot, and hopes that the judges will see her for who she is, and appreciate what she does. She adds that she's there to give her husband and child the better life that they deserve, and she's in it to win it. Simone, meanwhile, thinks that the shoot worked out in her favor, even though she realizes there are no guarantees when it comes to panel. Brenda is scared to see how her picture came out. She was a hot mess because of the hair and contacts and her overall dullness. As she prays for one good photo, we head to commercials.
