Alexandria tells us that today was a bonding experience for her and Brittani, and that Brittani realizes that Alexandria is there to help. She comes over to blow Brittani's face dry, which Jay thinks is sweet. He points out Alexandria's motherly ways, but then tells us that Alexandria was busy doing Francesco's job, his job, and even the jobs of the gaffers. We get a montage of her bossing people around or questioning whether they should redo things in a way that she finds appropriate, while Francesco's jaw drops. Alexandria tells Francesco that she's just trying to help out, and he replies that if she does that on a real commercial they'll kick her the fuck out. She half-heartedly apologizes, but I'm sure she continues to be a total dick. She just can't help herself.
Kasia tells us that the two female characters in the commercial are vixens, and also the brains behind the operation. She thinks it's cool and empowering, since back in the day women didn't have a say in anything. She's paired with Jaclyn, and both of them look great. Jaclyn's baby voice is hilarious, while Kasia vamps it up. She even gets a compliment from Monique, who says that she looked awesome and did really well. Francesco says he has no real notes for Kasia, so we are to infer that the shoot was a success.
Molly and Dalya are teamed up, and Molly looks so much like Betty Draper. Their performance seems dull to me, but Francesco calls it excellent and says that they took direction very well. Monique and Hannah are up next, and though Monique forgets that they are selling Fierce and not French roast, we move away from them quickly and so they probably did fine. Then there's Sara and Mikaela. Mikaela looks great, but her right hand is visibly shaking. Francesco yells at her, which I wouldn't imagine would help with nerves or over-caffeination. He doesn't give her any other criticism that we see, though. Sara looks gorgeous, but delivers her line to Mikaela and not Mr. Drysdale. Francesco reminds her that she's supposed to be seducing the dude. But really, given Mr. Drysdale or Mikaela, who would you direct your seduction efforts toward?
Francesco then yells at Sara not to put her thumb in her coffee cup. His interim verdict is a sharp, "Not good." Jay says that it's about as sexy as watching paint dry. Alexandria laughs at Sara, and tells us that she should be practicing sexy in the mirror a lot more. Francesco says that Sara appeared not to believe in the whole thing from the beginning. I don't think she's actually doing that bad, but I'd believe that her views on the dumbness of this whole endeavor are apparent. At one point she flicks her tongue snake-style in an effort to be sexy, which doesn't go over so successfully. Sara interviews that she's finding it really hard to fake any kind of sexual energy or emotion. She never had to do that in her life, and to try to ramp it up for a commercial is really difficult. It's certainly not the type of thing they'd make you do on America's Next Top Feminist, which airs nowhere, at never o'clock.
