When Alasia enters the bedroom with Raina and Jessica, they congratulate her. Jessica actually shows a fair amount of class by saying to Alasia that, though they are sad that their friend went home, everyone who remains in the competition deserves to be there. Alasia was of course in the bottom two last week, though ALT's love affair with her ensures that she's going to stick around for a bit, I think. Alasia tells us that she's the youngest girl in the house, and is still on a journey of self-discovery. She has a lot of work to do, she says, and assures us that modeling isn't anything you can learn to do overnight, no matter how much smokey shadow blast you apply.
Then we move on to Anslee. She tells us that she has a hard time reading Alexandra lately, and adds that she seems lost and defeated. I actually think that's a pretty good read, right there. Anslee doesn't have the luxury of self-pity because, in case you haven't heard, she's on this show to give her husband and child a better life. I don't know how screaming about frozen corn on national TV makes a better life for anyone, but there you go.
The next day, the loft elevator opens and Pat Cleveland emerges. To help aid in the development of her "kooky wax figure" persona, Pat has apparently adorned her eyelashes with taxidermied spiders. She reads a bit, "Priscilla, Queen of the Dead." Pat, who also loves to enunciate the letter "t," introduces fashion designer and star of MTV's The City, Whitney Port. One of my only TV-related points of pride is that I've never watched The Hills, so I know nothing about this creature. She seems affable enough, though I'm not sure if I can get behind Raina's claim that she has "so much to offer." If it turns out that she's the cool one from The Hills (if such a thing in fact exists), then I stand corrected. [Nope, she's actually the mind-numbingly boring one from the show who somehow merited an equally tedious spinoff. -- Angel]
Whitney tells the girls that, as a reward for working so hard all season, she and Pat are going to take them out. They're all going to get to wear something from Whitney's collection. Everyone freaks out like it's Prada. Pat freakily says that she's going to be speaking to each girl to find out "who you think you are." This is all related to how the girls carry themselves as models. You have to give it to Tyra, because just when you think she has exhausted her collection of weirdo friends, she pulls out Pat Cleveland.
