After a break, there is more Tyra Mail. This time there are no words, but merely a classic looking picture of Greek folk. Allison guesses that it's going to be a beauty shot with their faces painted gold. Like that ant with the rubber tree plant, Allison has high hopes. The ladies head to yet another scenic spot where Jay Manuel awaits in skinny jean cut offs. He tells the ladies that the ancient Olympian games originated in Greece 3,000 years ago, to honor the god Zeus. For today's shoot, they'll be using fashion accessories that recreate ancient Olympic sports like the discus and javelin and whatnot. Hopefully someone WILL get their eye poked out. Mere verbal drama is not enough for me these days. Nigel is the photographer for the day, which adds a layer of stress and a layer of smarm. He tells the ladies that he wants them to embody the incredible classic athleticism that the ancient games were all about. I actually like to think that the ancient Greeks were totally fat and never exercised, but could draw really well.
Dominique is first on set, and her sport is javelin throwing. Nigel asks if she's ever thrown a javelin before, like I'm sure she just does it in her backyard all the time. He does a demonstration because, as we are to learn, he knows how to do every ancient Olympic sport. Full of surprises, that one, and so butch. He implores Dominique not to skewer someone, especially him. Dominique explains to us that her sport is the "jovin" and then proceeds to hold the thing backwards. I think her preferred activity would involve making a kebab out of it. As Nigel seems to enjoy what she's doing, Dominique interviews that the panel keeps comparing her to J. Lo or Beyonce. She's trying to make her own name. What's her name again? Right. Angelea tells us that Dominique is good with her poses, but if you'd asked Angelea if Dominique would be in the final five her response would have been an emphatic, "Hell no!" She adds that she doesn't expect much from Dominique, and that she's boring. Case closed. Nigel tells us that there was a narrative in Dominqiue's performance, but in person her character is hidden. Where is Dominique, he asks? Who is Dominique? He still doesn't know. Hint: she's the one with the long pointy object.
Allison is next, and her sport is the discus. Instead of an actual discus, however, she gets a purse. And not even a particularly discus-y-looking one! Allison tells us that she tends to overanalyze herself and then get anxious. Thus, she's gunning for a really fantastic picture. Nigel models proper discus throwing technique, though not with a purse. He tells Allison to imagine that she's the goddess of wind. She sort of spins around, and Nigel tells us that instead of "quirky Goddess" she gave "very awkward." Jay explains that Allison started off extremely weak, but once she slowed down and went to her comfortable place, she started shooting usable film. So, good in the end I think.
