The girls travel to Morocco and Molly blames her everpresent stinkface on being adopted. Brittani talks about killing snakes in the trailer park. Alexandria is freaked out by a monkey that jumps on her back... she must have seen that 90210 episode with Annie getting bitten by one. ALT meets them at Noureddine Amir's studio and the girls have to walk in some of Amir's sculptural creations. Kasia has to go through the entire store before they can find a dress that will fit a plus-size figure. It's something that every curvy girl has fought with at one point or another. Molly's dress is too long and she complains. They finally find the plainest dress in the world for Kasia, but she gets credit for remembering her heels, while Alexandria gets called out for runway walking with her socks showing. Then ALT packs them in a van, and takes them to tea on a rooftop desk so they can all have a little chat. Then they get to see their new house, which is stunning, but a bunch of them have to share a bed... which Molly gripes about incessantly.
Their first photo shoot is taking place on the back of a camel. Jay tells them that they are totally grumpy creatures. I hope these super pale white girls brought sunscreen, because they look like they could melt in the sun. I was kind of hoping this would be the episode where they made them look like different races. Do they not do that anymore? Brittani does some contortions and then stands on the back of the camel. It looks remarkably hard. Molly does great, Kasia looks like she's going to fall off and the photographer says it is painful to shoot her. Alexandria talks to the photographer and sounds like an idiot, and then pisses off him off by not listening. Hannah plays with the camel and pretends she's at a bar riding a mechanical bull.
Franca Sozzani, the EIC of Vogue Italia is the guest judge tonight, and man, I would not want to upset her. Molly's standing shot gets mostly good critiques, and Nigel likes that it is androgynous. Alexandria is just standing still and uncomfortable on the camel, and she looks pissed off. Tyra calls Alexandria out for being difficult on set. Kasia's shot is good, but it's missing energy. Tyra said her film looked self-conscious. Molly's looks natural and they give her props. They don't pick one of the bucking bronco pics for Hannah, they've got her kneeling on a camel and Tyra says her film was fantastic. Best picture goes to Molly. She almost smiles. Go figure. Alexandria and Kasia land in the bottom two. Fiercely real Kasia ends up getting ousted. -- Angel Cohn

Previously on ANTM: The girls learned that they were going to Morocco and squealing ensued. The excitement was short-lived as they set out on go-sees with no GPS. Some of the casting agents felt that Molly needed to be friendlier, and Nigel agreed even though her complaining during a shot in a trash heap seemed to be warranted. Brittani apologized for her ill-timed reaming of Alexandria, and sweet Jaclyn was sent home and denied a trip abroad. Five bitches remain!
With that, we are in Marrakech, Morocco! A camel poses in profile, and I'm sure that soon someone will tell him that he needs to prove his ability to give full-on face if he expects to last in the competition. The girls land, and Brittani is thrilled to have come all the way from a trailer park in Pennsylvania to an exotic locale. Alexandria tells us that she feels very positive, especially after getting best picture (and winning the go-see challenge) last week. She's moved ahead of the pack, after a difficult beginning in which she was "misunderstood." What the other girls don't know about her, Alexandria says, is that she can change. She's a chameleon, and even has a gecko at home. She adds, "He doesn't change colors, but I sure do." What the two have in common is their cold, cold blood, and love of reasonably-priced insurance.
The girls see a camel and Alexandria shrieks with excitement. Molly crankily tells her not to scream in her ear. She tells us that she was pissed to be in the bottom two last week. She didn't think she deserved to be there but apparently, she says, everyone thinks that she looks like she wants to kill everyone. It doesn't help that as she says this she looks exactly like she wants to kill someone. We flash back to Tyra telling Molly to fake it when she feels like crap. I think the problem is that Molly always feels like crap. Molly tells us that there are a few places where her anger comes from. She's had a lot of sadness and hurt in her life, and since she was adopted she thinks she has abandonment issues. That's why she's mad all the time. To add to the fury, Molly says that she's obviously going to have to act like a completely different person and be fake, a la Alexandria. She thinks it's bullshit, but I guess she's ready to do what she has to do. Hannah makes a cameltoe joke that makes Molly laugh, and her face cracks from the unusual pressure of smiling.
A guy with a monkey on his shoulder welcomes the cameraman to Marrakech as the girls walk through a giant marketplace. There's a whole bunch of people, and a guy with a cobra, and someone playing some sort of horn. Kasia says it's unbelievable that she has this opportunity, and tells us that she's going to work so much harder than anybody else because she has to as a plus-sized model. IMG doesn't even have a plus-sized division, but they do have something called "superstars," and Kasia hopes that's where she'll be. Brittani checks out the snake charmers with a high quantity of trepidation. She says that in her country hick town, if you see a snake you kill it, skin it, and eat it. And at the bar she works at, they hang the skin on the wall. Delicious snake nuggets. Barbeque sauce or honey mustard?
