Diversity is key, particularly for a petite model. So Tyra sent the girls to a meeting with Lara Spender of The Insider to learn about the art of the interview. Lara told the girls that the number one fundamental of being a correspondent is the ability to think on your feet. Continuing with the bug motif, comedian Ant took on different annoying personas as the girls mock-interviewed him. Brittany makes a mistake as she says she wants to see Ant's movie (which means she hasn't actually seen it yet), but Sundai charms with her weird newscaster voice. Jennifer also gets props for thinking on her feet, even though she only manages to elicit one-word answers.
Next, the girls had to write their own scripts for a 25-second Cover Girl spot. Rae came off as cold and remote in her commercial. If her teeth were yellow, she might have been a bit more relatable. Nigel tells her that if they can't see the real her in the commercial read, she can't successfully be a Cover Girl. But it was bratty Erin who got on set and froze, and mangled take after take after take. She was unable to retain her composure, and so starts to cry. Erin tells us that she cries when she gets frustrated, and she was frustrated in the commercial shoot. She says she's not used to shooting commercials, and it would have been nice to have gotten more of a heads up about it. I think all the girls got the same heads up, which was Tyra Mail telling them to write a script the night before the shoot.
