Laura is next, and her photo is fab. Nigel calls it stunning, and adds that Laura had a great attitude and great ideas. She also powered through the mask. ALT agrees that it's a beautiful picture, but dislikes her pointy knee. Tyra appreciates the fact that Laura is smizing at the person she's about to kill. Or the muskrat that she's about to put in a stew. Overall, a solid performance from Laura.
The judges deliberate. The shot of Allison is great, but Nigel says that the process to get there was rather painful, and being athletic is not in Allison's comfort zone. Tyra likes the weirdness, but ALT sees modern interpretive dance and doesn't think it's successful. Miss J. loves Laura's photo, and can see her expression through the veil. Nigel says that Laura is fun and exciting and actually amuses you with funny stories of rat stew. Tyra quite enjoys Laura's photo, as well as the fact that she's not a twig. ALT is not super excited about Lisa's photo. Miss J. loves the fluidity and gracefulness, but finally points out that she has a dead face. Nigel and Tyra both think that the face is dreamy and different for Lisa, and works in the picture. Tyra thinks she looks fantastic, and is so confused by this that she calls ALT "Nigel."
Dominique gave warrior princess, according to ALT, which was not the assignment. Miss J. thinks that she looks beautiful, but the picture could use a little extra. Nigel says that Dominique has no fire. She is so fireless, in fact, that he forgot about Dominique's shoot by the end of the day. It's the old standby, but in this case it might actually be true. Tyra says that Dominique might not be the most memorable person, but she's professional and has been taking kick-ass pictures throughout. Angelea rocks her photo, according to ALT. Nigel says that she has the potential to be a star, but he had to work very hard to get this picture. Miss J. tells everyone about how angry she was at the challenge and how she called all the girls sneaky bitches. Tyra tries to imagine Angelea as an Extra correspondent (one of the prizes!) after having a bad day. Mario Lopez is a hating-ass bitch, I bet. He deserves it. But the judges wonder how she'd handle a situation where she may have to angrily interview Angelina Jolie on the red carpet. First of all, no one is letting Angelea get near Angelina Jolie. There is no second of all.
The models return. Five lovely ladies stand before Tyra, but she only has four photos in her hands. Those photos represent the girls who are still in the running towards becoming the ANTM All-Star. Laura gets best photo, and seems pleased as possum punch. Allison is called next, followed by Lisa. This leaves Angelea and Dominique in the bottom two. Dominique looks so pretty at panel, I can't even tell you. The body, people! I don't know when or why I became a Dominique defender. It's very strange and mysterious. Tyra tells Dominique that she's taken beautiful photos week after week, but the judges are struggling with the fact that she's not memorable. They're wondering if the fans watching Top Model are going to be rooting for Dominique because she has an extra special something. Then there's Angelea. She's taken some so-so photos, but is certainly memorable. However, she's often memorable for nearly punching other people in the throat. It makes people nervous, is what Tyra is saying.
