And now for the bad news. Well, let's wait and determine if we really feel that what's about to happen is bad or good, shall we? Jay is going to eliminate someone right now, bitches, for real for real. He and Miss J. talked it over. And they determined...that Hannah gets the boot! I mean, not that I'm secretly thrilling inside or anything. Hannah whines, "I'm really sad right now!" Oh, is that a pity party I hear? Methinks Hannah has some beans to collect. Hannah is worried that she disappointed her family, though she knows that they're so proud of her already. Well, they can't watch the show in Town Without Electricity, Alaska. She should just tell them that she won. She tells us that she's learned a lot about herself - primarily that she's racist - and a lot about other people - primarily that they all think she's racist. She tried her hardest, she says, and that's all you can do. And then she's gone. Seriously. No more fanfare than that. Don't you secretly think that Tyra just started watching some footage and put her two brain cells together to come up with a way to get this bitch out?
And there's not even a commercial after Hannah is eliminated! Burn. Instead we see Joslyn, Sheena and Isis head off to meet Kira Plastinina and do their advertorial shoot. Kira is adorable and, in case you didn't hear it the first time, fifteen years old, and makes me feel like I've accomplished nothing in my life. The shoot seems to go pretty well. Yay, Joslyn!
Back at home, there is yet more Tyra Mail: "This competition is deep. Some will rise above, and some will go under. Love, Tyra." Sheena deduces that this is a photo shoot, and it's going to be fierce. Marjorie and Analeigh talk. Marjorie says that Hannah really improved but was the obvious choice to go home. Analeigh can't even suspend her pity party for a moment in honor of her former comrade, and says that while she used to be excited about the photo shoots, now she's just nervous. She's the only one who's not doing well, she says. The girls with similarly bad critiques are now all gone. She knows she has to improve and bring back the girl the judges saw in casting. The first step is getting her confidence back. Marjorie tells Analeigh that she can't go home as we head to commercials.
And then it's Whitney's "My Life As a Cover Girl" ad. In case you were wondering, New York is a place to be seen, to be found, and to take in. Whitney is getting to know the city, which conveniently appears to have about three residents as she's biking through it. She says there's nothing better than being the next big thing. How would she know?
