Later on, or previously -- you know how the time/space continuum operates on this show -- a few of the girls decide to make potato pancakes. Lauren starts chopping an onion, and suddenly there is a scream. From Lauren! Who has sliced through her thumb! Whitney says, "It went right through the nail," which just freaks me right the heck out. One of the show's producers whisks her off to the hospital. Fatima interviews that Lauren is a big girl, so if she wants to see the doctor, it means she must be in real pain. What if that thumb tip is the part that holds all of her rage, and now she becomes truly meek and mild mannered? I guess we'll find out.
With that crisis underway, we head back to Fatima's passport crisis. An ANTM producer calls her up, saying that he just got off the phone with her lawyer. The problem is that the consulate feels this is too last moment. Fatima protests that she didn't know. The producer is worried that she's not going to get her document anytime soon. Fatima confessionalizes (with no makeup -- gah!) that she's going to try and push through and hope that things will work out, because right now, they don't look so good. Yes, it is a dire situation, but not nearly as dire as the situation known as Farmer Wants a Wife. With this, we head to commercials.
When we return, Whitney relives the potato pancake incident. Lauren comes home, with a little cast on her thumb. She tells us that she had stitches, and that the doctor had to cut some of the nail off. She emphasizes that it sucked -- it really sucked. But she didn't bleed to death, so screw her and let's get on with the modeling hijinx!
The girls receive a big, wrapped box. They open it to discover lots of lemons and limes. They dig and find a smaller box, with the 7UP logo. Inside is an invitation from fashion designer Jay Godfrey. He is inviting them to an exclusive green carpet event for 100% natural 7UP. Katarzyna guesses that there is a lesson coming up involving interviewing, impressing people, and drinking delicious fizzy lemon-lime soda. Whitney ponders the situation in her giant glasses and pimply chin. She is a dead ringer for Jm J. Bullock.
Elsewhere, Whitney drinks a 7UP tells some of the other girls how being a plus-sized model puts her at a disadvantage in a party scenario. Unless, of course, it's the National Bacon Convention, in which case those skinny bitches would not be needed. Whitney tells us that she's in a difficult spot, but she's working her ass off. Not literally, though, because she likes her curves! The girls then get another visitor -- it's Courtney Kish, head of styling for Jay Godfrey. Turns out that Jay has "personally" selected some of his designs for the girls to wear to his party. The dresses are by and large pretty. Fatima realizes this theoretically, but would rather for all the world have a dress made out of passports.
