Sundai, Erin and Nicole are up next. Erin has no problem posing with the giant forehead mask creatures, and Jay tells her she's doing a good job. Sundai also does well, and Jay tells us that she was great at being confident and making herself look tall, which as the tiniest girl in the competition is no small feat. Nicole has crazy black eyebrows drawn on for reasons unknown. She struggles, and Jay asks her to give a little more shape in her fringy dress. Nicole is worried, since Jay gave Sundai and Erin positive notes while she got only critique. She still has problems with her crazy claw hand, too. Jay tells us that Nicole wasn't terrible, but she wasn't amazing. And since she's been pretty amazing so far, she didn't live up to expectations. This is why living life in mediocrity is actually a pretty good strategy. No one can really be disappointed in you.
The final group is Ashley, Kara and Laura. Jay tells them to bring all of their learning to set. Laura, who loves everything always, tells us how excited she was to pose in her crazy makeup, giant helmet hair and beautiful dress. Jay loves what she's doing, and says that she's coming alive. At one point she totally gives a big forehead creature bedroom eyes. Maybe that's how giant tie-dye snails are made. Ashley interviews that she thinks she did pretty well on the shoot, but there's not a lot of positive feedback coming from Jay. He tells her to beware looking squat and even shorter as she hunches over. Laura, however, is working it with her hand on Ashley's hip. Mystere really puts her in the mood. In any case, Jay tells us that Ashley has the bones, the eyes, the lips, the jaw and the body, but is a lifeless dullard on set. No good. Jay doesn't seem to know what to say about Kara. In the end, he tells us that she was just not memorable. She faded into the background, but looked beautiful. The final group finishes their shoot. Kara tells us that Jay gave a listless "good job" as they walked off, which was almost worse than definitive negative criticism. She feels like he could care less if it was bad or good, and was just relieved that it was over. Maybe he's developing a case of Cirque-o-phobia, too. With that, we head to commercials.
Meanwhile, what's up with the lack of My Life as a Cover Girl commercials this season? Has the show really stopped pretending altogether that the likes of Teyona has a career?
Back at the house, there is Tyra Mail. Someone is going home. Nicole tells us that she's not nervous about elimination and that even though she's been hard on herself she doesn't think she ended up in the bottom two. Kara tells some of the other girls that Jay didn't say anything to her group as they finished their shoot, and attributes it to him not caring. And, frankly, after thirteen cycles I think he's earned his right not to care. Kara is pretty nervous about her standing, but at the same time doesn't think she had a terrible shoot. Ashley is nervous as well, but tells us that she's a fighter. And a complainer. And kind of a tool.
