Back at home there's Tyra Mail! "You're all looking a little pale. I think you need some color! Love, Tyra." Fo conjectures that body paint will have something to do with it. Aminat agrees, adding that facial expressions likely will be a part of the shoot as well. But we don't go right to the shoot. Instead, the camera lingers on Celia, sitting with crossed legs at the top of the stairs. Tahlia, with her fancy sports bra, comes and sits next to her. Celia asks Tahlia if she's okay. Tahlia says that she's disappointed. She interviews that instead of attacking Celia verbally, she's going to handle things like an adult and talk about the situation. That is for sure a grave change from most anything we've seen on this show so far. Kudos, on one hand, but on the other, Zzzzzzzzz. Tahlia tells Celia that she was humiliated in front of Tyra, the other judges, and all of the girls. Celia tells Tahlia that she didn't mean to hurt her, but wanted Tyra to know what was going on. Tahlia quietly says that there are other ways to do that. Actually, since Tyra seems to spend exactly the length of panel with the girls each week, there probably weren't. Tahlia explains to Celia that she did question her own motives for being there and wondered if she was taking the wrong approach. The subtext, however, is that Celia needs to mind her menswear-clad business. Celia apologizes for humiliating Tahlia and says it wasn't her intention. She also acknowledges that Tyra's pissed at her and she's totally going to get eliminated. She's prepared for it. Celia interviews that she wants to go home knowing that everyone in the competition wants to be there as much or more than she does. With that, we head to commercials.
And hey, it's McKey. She's going to be in a runway show! She's having a fitting, and accentuating it with mineral makeup. Fascinating! Don't you get the feeling that she just really wants to go back to kickboxing class or whatever?
When we return, the girls head to yet another unmarked warehouse. Jay introduces them to photographer Keith Major, who shot Tyra for the cover of Ebony and knows how to give face. The girls are each going to have a different colored powder splashed across their face all artistic-like, and it's their job to emote that color. Oh, Lord. Also, the shots are going to be close-ups. The girls head to hair and makeup and Sutan wonders if everybody's getting along okay. Tahlia just sort of smiles with her big teeth, and eventually someone gives a half-hearted, "Yeah." House of lies!
