After credits and commercials, the Brits give Alisha smizing lessons and she tells us a bit more about her history. She grew up in whatever the British equivalent of a ghetto is, and also was dyslexic. She was very quiet, and people would bully her for being a tall, slim, model-to-be. She had quite a hard time in school because of it all. Alisha wants to show all the girls in London that they can go somewhere else and be someone, be someone, be someone. If only she could meet someone with a fast car, and write her own ticket to anywhere. When you're starting from zero, after all, you've got nothing to lose. Alisha also knows that if she wins this competition, it will make her mom's day. It makes my day when Alisha looks at herself in the mirror and exclaims, "Oh! I did a smize!"
On the heels of this great victory, Tyra Banks pays a visit to the model house. She makes the girls take a pass on an impromptu catwalk while telling her about themselves. Kyle says that she's different, and isn't a brown-headed sweet girl anymore. Eboni is fierce, fierce, fierce, and can sell it. She really missed an opportunity to say, "You can burn but you can't break me" here. (And in case you were wondering, the burn mark is still MASSIVE.) Alisha is young, funky, and fresh. Louise is a lot of synonyms for zaftig. We then cut to an interview with Louise, in which she tells us that there aren't a lot of things she's good at, but modeling is fucking one of them. As she was a working model, she gave up a lot to be part of this competition. However, she thinks she'll go a lot further than most people. If, that is, she doesn't freak the fuck out first. Um, spoiler alert. Tyra visits the girls' bedrooms and gets to hear Eboni rap about the Brits taking eleven hours to fly back to England. She is really obsessed with the length of that flight, isn't she?
Tyra then gathers everyone together and tells them that they all know about the super model phenomenon, and that there's something about them that makes them super. OH! Finally the mystery of why they're called SUPERmodels has been revealed. When Tyra was a supermodel, she'd do interviews with journalists who said, "Supermodels? What does that mean? Do you have super POWERS or something?" I invoke the Freedom of Information Act and demand to see this in print. Anyway Tyra, being Tyra, said, "Hell yeah we have super powers!" And then Tyra, being Tyra, wrote a book called Modelland and renamed supermodels with superpowers "Intoxibellas." Of course she did. And now Tyra, being Tyra, puts on a cape and reveals her superpower, which is the power of smizing. I thought maybe we all did our Modelland penance last season and would be free of it, but I clearly underestimate my foe.
