The next shoot brought the models closer together, in a mud-covered group shot. The blondes posed together, and Hannah and Molly were smoldering even through the dirt. The brunettes also managed to make the mud look seductive, and Brittani distinguished herself from the pack with her effortless posing. Too-sexy Monique, however, had trouble sustaining her model during the shoot, turning into the dreaded pretty woman. With the competition almost halfway over, the girls were pretty tense. For Alexandria, this pressure became a literal pain. She apparently has a back problem. Not, like, a long-term one. One that developed on the day when this was shot. She screams and whines and moans and asks if anybody can crack a back. Brittani is annoyed by this, much as she is annoyed by everything about Alexandria. She hopes that Alexandria will go home, but instead it was Monique who was sent home. Hopefully the Victoria's Secret people will call!
The girls were super sad about Monique's ouster, but perked up quite a bit when they had a celebrity encounter in their own lobby. It turns out that Usher, of plagiarizing songs from The Simpsons fame, and P. Diddy, of Diddy Dirty Money fame, walked right past them. Brittani tells us that Usher looked her right in the eye and said, "Hey." She almost peed in her pants. She then does a quasi-split and humps the floor, in what is perhaps the oddest physical display I've ever seen. Molly looks on, possibly in horror.
The only celebrity who can possibly outshine the legends Usher and P. Diddy is Top Model's own J. Alexander. The girls talk about which gender pronouns to use with Miss J., which prompts Kasia to say, "I think it's a he." Wow. She realizes her error quickly, but still. Jaclyn is totally befuddled, which is why we may never have heard her call Miss J. by name. Hannah brings up the fact that Miss J. calls himself bitch, which proves absolutely nothing. In the end, the girls decide that Miss J. doesn't care if you call him "Good Sir" or "Milady." Jaclyn remains befuddled.
