When the girls return home, there is Tyra Mail. Someone's going home! The message is delivered in a box with a skull on top, which can't be good. Bianca and Bloody Eyeball sit by the pool, and Bianca asks B.E. why she doesn't talk much. B.E. says that she gets in her head a lot. She stops noticing what goes on around her and just thinks about stuff. Bianca interviews that Bloody Eyeball is stiff competition, however she's also really weird, and she's really quiet, and still waters run deep. And THEN Bianca actually says to Bloody Eyeball, "I think something's wrong with you." Something tells me that B.E. has heard this before. She also knows how to recognize a stank bitch when she sees one, so is appropriately wary of Bianca. With this, we head to commercials.
When we return, it's time for panel! The girls head out to find Tyra holding a giant cardboard cutout of her baby photo over her face. The other judges are doing the same thing, perhaps in part to build the suspense over who has replaced Paulina. Miss J. doesn't have a childhood photo, because he sprung fully formed out of Pepper LaBeija's forehead. Tyra introduces the girls to guest judge for the week, model Chanel Iman, and they're all appropriately impressed. Then, of course, there's Nigel, who had long, flowing locks as a child. Miss J. is introduced last, which means there IS no Paulina replacement whatsoever. The salty seat is deserted, my friends. The prizes are a bit different, too. The winner will receive a contract with Wilhelmina models this cycle, because Wilhelmina welcomes models of every size and shape. The cover and six-page spread in Seventeen remain, as does the $100,000 Cover Girl contract. With that, the evaluations begin!
