The judging begins! Tyra says emphatically that every model should know where her light is and how it hits her bone structure as she reminds us of the theme for the week. Fo is first to be evaluated, and Tyra tells her she looks absolutely stunning. Miss J. tells everyone how Fo cried and cried when she got her hair cut. Tyra says that any girl who gets all the hair chopped on Top Model should be flattered, because it means she thinks they have amazing bone structure and a strong face. Fo says she's thrilled to have her new hair, but Tyra doesn't believe her. At least she's making an attempt to fake it. Fo's photo is beautiful, but Nigel sighs and tells her that she let her makeover get the best of her. He asks the other judges if they can believe that she cried on his set whilst he was shooting her, then blamed it on her haircut. The fact that Fo cried about her makeover during the shoot makes Tyra question whether she should be a model. Because when you're a model, you look like someone else wants you to look, and you need to shut up about it. Nole tells her to step it up and swallow those tears. Fo softly says that she will.
Kortnie is next. She lit herself from the side, which Paulina says is not the most flattering light. Nigel tells Kortnie that her problem was she couldn't get into the moment. Tyra says that she needs to get invested and feel it and make sound effects inside of herself, like she's a mute pervy heavy-breathing anonymous phone caller. Kortnie makes that very noise inside of herself, wonders why she feels so funny and gross, and is dismissed. Next there's Nijah, who is the first of the night to get a critique on her nightgown/doily-esque shirt. Tyra hopes she doesn't look so stupid when she's dressed by a team of professionals. Paulina tells Nijah that she looks like a beautiful corpse in her photo, and Miss J. adds that she could do so much more with her eyes. Tyra says, totally offended, "It's almost like you never heard the phrase 'smile with your eyes.'" It's almost like she never got instruction on tooching her booty. It's almost like she doesn't listen to the things that The Benevolent Supermodel tells her through the television. She is not long for this world.
