Raina, 22 from Minnetonka, Minnesota, talks to the other girls about her impressive volleyball career. She looks kind of like a Denise Richards/Anna Chlumsky hybrid, in what I think is mostly a good way, but at certain angles makes it seem like she should be lip synching for her life. Raina was always the tallest girl in her class, and had huge buckteeth. The past tense might be a bit misleading, there. She was very shy and had no friends. She seems lovely and well-adjusted now, though. Then there's Jessica, 18 from Conway, Arkansas, who reveals that she's married and has a one-year old boy. Alasia is shocked. Jessica is sweet as Arkansas sweet tea, and loves two things in the world: her family and the modeling industry.
Jessica goes before the panel looking like a ray of sunshine. Tyra points out that Jessica conceived her son the first time she had sex. Jessica has no idea how it happened. Abstinence-only education at work! Her doctor told her she's very fertile. Nobody apparently told her about condoms. Jessica was 16 when she met her baby daddy, who was 22. They met at church, which she thinks is ironic but I think is actually pretty typical. Jessica got married at 16 and had a baby at 17. Her parents disapproved completely, as did Jessica's church. She and her husband are not accepted there because of how they chose to do things. But... they got married and she had the baby. Wouldn't the other way of choosing to do things be less acceptable to the church? Mr. Jay points out that he saw something a little edgy in her. Ms. J. defines that as "getting knocked up at 16."
Raina comes in next, dressed like a rocker cheerleader. Mr. Jay loves her eyes, which are framed by giant eyebrows. Raina says that she was not a pretty kid at all, and basically looked like a ghost with a unibrow. During her senior year in high school she busted out of her shell, and became the fabulous and confident creature she is today. Both of the Jays LOVE her.
Next up is redheaded Brenda, 23 from Houston. Brenda was adopted, and loves her fabulous parents. She recently decided to track down her biological dad. Brenda's boyfriend is a police officer, which made finding her convicted-felon father rather easy. Brenda knocked on his door and said, "Hi, I think I'm your daughter." I mean, a surprise visit SEEMS like such a good idea, I don't know what could have gone wrong. But alas, things didn't go so well and Criminal Dad denied her as his offspring. But Brenda seems fine about it, and says that it gave her some closure. Much like Jessica, Brenda got pregnant the first time she had sex. Sometimes this show feels like one big PSA. Her daughter is adorable. Brenda says she has a baby and has stretch marks, but can still be on top with hard work.
