Aminat, Kortnie, Sandra and Celia are next. Aminat is the first to work with the lights, and the first to interview that there's a lot of pressure and she needs to step up her game. In bad news for Aminat, Celia is in the foreground and is doing a great job, thus upstaging Aminat. Aminat feels like crap. Sandra gives a big smile, because Aminat failing is like a coo and finger squeeze from the Baby Jesus. Celia is next, and Jay wants her to bring the same kind of creativity that she had as an extra to her spot as the focus of the photo. She obliges. Nigel tells us that he was looking forward to shooting Celia and, indeed, she does not disappoint. She "got it." Sandra does not so much "get it," despite her determination to get herself out of the bottom two. Jay asks what she's thinking about, and she smiles blankly and says she's thinking about doing the best she can. Jay thinks she looks bored. Nigel tells her to add a little attitude, which doesn't seem like it should be a challenge. Her photos start to get better. Aminat is disappointed. Kortnie is a disaster. She sucks so hard that Nigel can't even bother to give her any direction. He just snaps as fast as he can to get through however many frames he has to bang out. If the photographer's not inspired, says Jay, that means Tyra's not going to be inspired. And when Tyra's not inspired, you get Cycles 6 through 12.
Teyona, Natalie, London and Fo are the last group to go. Jay tells them that the other girls have been underwhelming and he's never seen Nigel so uninspired. London goes first and tells us how unnatural it feels to light yourself when you're also trying to pose. This shoot does require dexterity of the walking / chewing gum variety that I could see being a challenge. London seems to do an okay job, but it is Teyona, up next, who really shines. Jay tells us that she was genius and really knew how to light herself and pose. Fo is next, and is still hung up about her makeover. Nigel can tell. Fo interviews that she doesn't know how to work with the hair and can't get over the fact that it's so short. Jay notes that Fo was emotional on makeover day and asks if she feels like they've stripped away her femininity. Fo cops to feeling kinda butch. She interviews that she feels like Plain Jane's brother. That is pretty sad. She starts tearing up on the shoot even as she resolves to work it out. Jay gives an exasperated sigh and tells us that Fo's short hair gives her an edge and makes her look taller. It's true that she looks great and has the face to carry it off. Natalie is next and keeps her perfect streak alive for the week. And that's a wrap!
