Dania announces that the girl who does the best tonight will have her picture featured in a Cover Girl advertorial for Seventeen, as well as on Covergirl.com. Additionally, their 30-second improvised commercial will be broadcast live on a Times Square jumbotron. Alasia freaks out a little at the thought of an improvised, televised commercial, while Krista is ready to let her personality shine. The girls get wardrobed and have to apply their own makeup. Simone is sad that she has no lines to memorize, because that's the part she thinks she'd be good at. The personality part does not come quite so naturally. She says she can write a research paper in five hours flat and get an "A". But modeling isn't so clear-cut, and is in fact a lot more subjective than academia. Also, people pay more attention to the size of your thighs. We see little snippets of the commercials, which are pretty unexciting. Tatianna agrees, and says that most of the girls looked happy, but like they were posing. She's a student of Cover Girl commercials, and knows that cover girls tend to act like morons. So she acts like a moron in turn -- flips her hair, shimmies, and shows those funky front teeth to great advantage. Brenda is having issues about how to be Cover Girl-esque with her new stupid hair. She says she has to think things through a lot more than the other girls. Brenda does not know how to sustain a wave of sympathy and goodwill from the viewing public, does she? So tedious! Jessica totally rolls her eyes before realizing she's still live on camera! Greatest.
Dania critiques the girls and says that they were all holding back. She says that they have to give life, and flip their hair with great relish. It's important for the girls to go all the way and shine through. Dania tells Anslee that she should have been a bit more inviting. Anslee tells us that she might not have done the commercial the right way, but it's because she couldn't hear Dania clearly when she was giving the instructions, and she couldn't interrupt everything and make a big deal out of her own hearing impairment. Now, I know they were in the middle of Times Square and it probably was hard to hear. But could she not have asked someone what they were supposed to do? Seriously? She did not think with the quickness on this one, and so produced that lame-ass excuse that's going to get her reamed at panel. Dania wanted Brenda to do something -- anything -- during her commercial. Simone also was holding back. She tells us that if she had known that she could have gone up there and danced and acted a fool, she would have. I think we all know that's a lie. Tatianna acted like a moron, and so got Dania's attention. She wins the challenge, and Dania also totally wants to be her BFF.
