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.
When we return, it's panel time! Tyra is wearing yet another ill-fitting jumpsuit. I don't know what this is about, but suspect that she somehow might be trying to impress ALT. Or else she's waiting for her ship to beam her home. There are prizes, there are judges. Anne Rice is the guest judge. Kidding! It's actually Dania Ramirez. [She had blood come out of her eyes on Heroes so it is sorta appropriate. -- Angel]
Blood-loving Tatianna is up first, and several of the judges say, "Wow." Nigel can feel the angst and the tension in the photo, and adds that it's dramatic. Dania likes her attitude. ALT adds that Tatianna's photo has drama, and has expressed a good narrative about vampires. Tyra loves Tatianna's face, which looks like she's inhaling. You know, like you do when you meet a sexy vampire. Good critique overall. Jessica is next. Nigel wishes she had more action and tension in her body. ALT thinks that Jessica's leg position is awkward, and that her pose is cliché. However, Tyra says that Jessica looks stunning and has good light on her face. Then there's Alasia. The judges go nuts over her photo, and all talk over each other for a moment in excitement. Nigel says that it's unbelievable, and that she's telling a story with her eyes even when she has no pupils or irises to speak of. Alasia also has the vampire-loving inhale face, and her spread-eagle legs and arms look very long. She's clearly delighted with her excellent critique.
