The luckiest audience in the world files in to watch the girls hopefully humiliate themselves. Miss J. and Erin give pep talks, and Erin suggests that they pretend that the bubble is invisible. That will be harder to do once they see that it has all kinds of motherfucking red confetti in it. Erin also notes that she'll be the guest judge at panel this week, so will be watching them closely. Russell, Jay and Erin take their front row seats, and it's time for the show to begin. Alexandria is first, and proves that it is really difficult to look graceful while walking in a giant hamster ball filled with confetti. She does not, however, fall off of the runway, which I view as a triumph. Monique is so inwardly elated about not falling that she swishes a hand over her head at the end of the runway, which Miss J. instantly mocks. The best thing to do is not give him material. Ondrei, who is 18 and from Muskegon, Michigan, is next and tells us that she doesn't have much experience with the runway. I think the twelve-inch runway and hamster ball sort of evens the field in this case. She's scared to death, as she should be. And then it happens. On her return pass, Ondrei wobbles and falls back-first on the runway, encased in her plastic bubble. As we contemplate how much that shit must have hurt, it's time for a commercial break.
When we return, we get to see Ondrei's magical spill once more, along with wacky sound effects because this is like a really high-fashion version of Wipeout. Poor Ondrei can't attend to her concussion because she has to figure out how the heck to maneuver her plastic ball back to land, which, as it turns out, is no easy task. There is a lot of futile spinning and falling before she finally makes it. Ondrei handles the situation with as much grace as is called for, which is none.
