Back at the model house, there's skull and crossbones Tyra Mail. Someone's going home. Camille tells us that she's worried, because she's older than everyone else and doesn't have the time to accomplish her goals. She adds that it won't be as simple to bounce back as it will be for the other girls in the house. In many respects, a stint on Top Model is akin to a hip replacement. I'm guessing that Camille came back for the all-stars season because she needed the money, but ended up with a hefty self-esteem deficit. This is why I don't go to the gym of the university where I work. Being on the elliptical next to a 19 year old just isn't good for a lady in her 30s. Kayla tells us that she was in the emergency room two days ago, but she managed to persevere through an acting challenge and a photo shoot. Triumph of the spirit! She did this all while going through what she characterizes as a mini heart attack. That certainly makes it sound more serious than caffeine-induced flutters. Kayla assures us that she wants to win this competition more than ever. Lisa talks to Shannon about her photo shoot, and notes that she felt like the male models were really tired and devoid of energy. We cut to an interview of her saying that she doesn't know what the future holds or if she'll be going home next, then head to commercials.
When we return, it's panel time. I somehow managed to pause right on a shot of Tyra's veiny feet. She's wearing shoes that have a curvy gray swipe running to the point, and it makes her look like she has one giant toe-claw. That's, like, a footwear representation of her soul. She's also back to the jumpsuits, it pains me to tell you. There are prizes, there are judges. ALT is not wearing his barbershop quartet straw hat today, and looks much less wizard-ish in general. Maybe he's taking Nigel's advice about how to turn it on and off to heart. Anthony Zuiker of CSI fame is the guest judge.
Laura is up first for evaluation, wearing a very fancy Wanda Sue creation. Maybe Express will actually hire Wanda Sue as a designer! I mean, she couldn't do a worse job than whoever they have currently. Laura looks so pretty in her photo. ALT tells her that she outshines the men in the background. He thinks that she looks like a high-class but wonderful star, while Tyra adds that Laura possesses a sweetness mixed with sexuality. Kayla is next, and Anthony thinks that her fur-hat shot is very provocative. Nigel says that her icy look is genius in the picture, because it makes her look like the tough cool chick that she's supposed to be portraying. It's a good picture, though I think she might have lucked into it.
