Previously: The girls lived out a front-row fantasy when they had to walk down Rodeo Drive and smize for Patrick Demarchelier. Ann continued to smash Top Model records by scoring her fifth straight top photo win. Meanwhile, Kacey's fake personality was despised by her contemporaries but beloved by Walmart shoppers. Regardless, she couldn't take a picture and was eliminated. Eight bitches remain!
In the limo, it's all smiles as the girls celebrate Kacey's elimination. Kendal tells us that Kacey wasn't trustworthy, and so her ouster was cause for happiness. Kacey went around to hug all the girls, but Kendal only gave her a handshake. She's fine with that. Kendal tells us that she's a shy, quiet country girl, and is very happy and blessed to be there. However, she needs to turn up her performance if she wants to make it into the pages of Italian Vogue. Liz tells us that Ann has won best photo five weeks in a row, but when she has to show personality or even simply talk it's a different matter. Liz wants to stand out and be remembered, and knows she can do it.
Back at the house, a few the girls give some lip service to Ann's best-of-week digital art, but most ignore it. Esther tells us that she feels lucky to be in the competition, but also has to make sure that she's true to who she is and all she's learned throughout her life. In case you forgot, Esther is a modern orthodox Jew, and lives by the rules set forth in the Torah. For example, she's kosher and really has to watch it when she's, like, fixing her hamburger on the girls' cheesy grill. Chris is befuddled by Esther's attentiveness to her kosher lifestyle, and notes that the competition is stressful enough without having to worry about such dietary specifics. She's glad that she can eat a damn cheeseburger without having to think about it.
Tyra Mail! "Sometimes you have to perform a duet before you get your big solo. Love, Tyra." Kayla says that, whatever it is, she's planning on doing the best she can. She was in the bottom two last week, but this is only motivating her to do better. The girls head to the Grammy museum, where Liz and Kayla go gaga over the Michael Jackson tribute. Never before have they received chills when gazing upon a sequined glove. Jay Manuel meets them and introduces Neil Portnow, who is the president and CEO of The Recording Academy. Neil tells the girls that every year, about a half billion people around the world tune in to watch the Grammy awards, and they audition thousands of girls to be the bitches who hand out the trophies. And now one of our little model-ettes will get the chance to be a Grammy Girl as well! Chris fans herself with excitement and Liz looks like she just found the golden ticket. The girls will have to split into pairs and decide which look is appropriate to convince Neil to give them the job. This could be elegant, funky, rock n' roll or, more likely, something monstrous and horrible. The girls are paired according to how they're standing, which leaves unfortunate Chelsey to once again be paired with Ann. Chelsey is not psyched. Jay sends everyone off to style house Chic Little Devil to pick worthy ensembles. The catch is that the girls will be picking clothes for each other. Chelsey totally knows she's screwed. When the girls return in their complete looks, Jay will choose the winning team and Neil will choose the member of that team who will get to be the Grammy Girl.
