Rachel, who loves her dark hair, is up first. Nigel this that she's nicely precocious in her photo, even if her right hand is a little broken and claw-like. Rachel is 5' 5 1/2", but looks a good 5'9" in her picture, which is a good thing. It's all about making yourself look like you went through the taffy puller. Ashley is next, and Chanel Iman says that she's giving it. Ashley is a dance teacher, and is using her dance background to enhance her modeling. Good work all around. Next is Brittany. Miss J. says with some reservation that her photo is sexy, and Tyra notes that throughout her film Brittany overdid the booty tooch. The overt sexuality needs to be pulled back a bit. Brittany thinks that her dark hair brings out her sexiness. Tyra notes that she, too, has darker hair now, and then proceeds to wag her tongue in an exaggerated fashion that will give us all nightmares.
Jennifer is next, and does a great job of stretching her body to fill the frame of the picture. Miss J. thinks it's brilliant. Tyra says that her jawline is stunning and her eyes are beautiful, and Nigel approves of how she's updated her childhood photo. Kara is next, and her profile shot is good. However, Nigel is skeptical when any profile shot is chosen, because it means that the model is not good straight on. Tyra tells Kara that she needs to work on her straight-on shots, which basically means, "Get prettier." Rae and her ballerina shot is next. Nigel thinks that it's great, and Chanel says that she's graceful and looks like a doll. Tyra hyperventilated when she first saw Rae's photos, but sadly did not pass out. Chanel tells her to get used to the uncomfortable shoes.
Next is Sundai, the shortest girl in the competition at 5'3". Miss J. tells her to take off her leg warmers, which are making her look stumpy. She does so, over her shoes no less! The life of a fashion model is 24-7 craziness! Sadly for Sundai, her photo does not get raves. Nigel tells her that she's beautiful, with an exquisite face, but she actually looks too strong and has a lack of energy in her photos. Sundai is depressed. Next up is Lisa, who admits to being both excited and nervous. Nigel likes the concept and styling of Lisa's shot, but her pose looks too amateurish. Chanel thinks that she looks mean, and Miss J. adds that her face got lost in all of her clown ruffles.
