Elsewhere, Anya chats it up with Jay Manuel and Cycle 2's April, who tells the girls to be themselves. As the party proceeded, Anya says, she just decided to be natural and enjoy herself. Nigel tells Lauren that she looks so great, he almost didn't recognize her. A backhanded compliment, but a compliment nonetheless. She comes across as confident at the party, which is the opposite of how she appears at panel. She says that mostly she was in so much pain because of the thumb that she just went for it. Lauren is going to be the most successful digit-free model in history! We then get clips of Stacy-Ann telling a bunch of people that she's from Miami. She says that she can mingle and network and is great at marketing herself and her dress. She thinks she has it in the bag. She really can wear clothes, at the very least.
Jay Godfrey and Lara meet with the girls to discuss how they performed. Anya was charming and knows how to sell her dress. She was poised and refined on the green carpet. Dominique, of course, didn't know the designer she was wearing. I wish Janice Dickinson and/or Joan Rivers had been the one interviewing her at that moment. Lauren is beautiful, but has to lose the potty mouth. Lara tells her to be bigger than that. To which I say, fuck you dicksucker. ["Aw. What are we going to do until Rock of Love comes back?" -- Joe R] Stacy-Ann didn't wow Lara on the red carpet, and seemed a bit distant. She shouldn't overthink it, says Lara. I somehow doubt that's the problem. The winner of the challenge, says Jay, is someone who is incredibly natural and confident. And it's ANYA. Who would have thunk it, huh? As Whitney says, "Anya...you know...she's not the brightest star in the sky." Okay, now I like Whitney again. Turns out that Anya will get to go on a photo shoot for a 7UP ad. She's excited to have done well, especially by way of being herself.
