It's go-see time! Or rather, "go-and-sees" time. Before the girls are set out into the wild, blue Milan-der, Tyra gives them some tips and tricks for putting their portfolios together. There is also an excellent moment when Chris does a Tyra impression and Tyra fake-laughs to the best of her ability. Chris should think about folding that into the impression. The girls meet the directors of IMG Milan, who tell them that there are four potential go-and-sees set up -- a photographer, an innovative photographer, a global casting director, and Versace. Versace! This is cause for great excitement, though I am sad to tell you that Donatella does not make an appearance.
The girls are only allowed to walk or use public transportation to get to their go-and-sees, which you can imagine is designed to get them as lost as possible. They have four hours in which to go and see, and must make it back to the agency by 6:30 PM sharp or be disqualified. Chris and Jane team up and are lucky enough to stumble upon Versace within the first fifteen minutes. It doesn't go so well for either of them, with Jane being deemed as fresh but with a bad walk, and Chris not having a good "fit" with her body. Kayla and Chelsey also pair up, and Ann kind of tags along with them by default. They get lost but finally make it to Versace, where Chelsey gets a middlin' review, Kayla is thought to be good for editorial but not a runway show, and Ann is perfect because she's tall and twiggy. At 5:00, Chris and Jane decide to go back to IMG with only one go-see to their credit. Perhaps as karma, Chris twists her ankle. Kayla and Ann get hopelessly lost, while Chelsey manages to get to the go-and-see with the casting director and still make it back to IMG on time. It is Chelsey with her illustrious two go-and-sees who wins the challenge and claims a Versace jacket as her prize.
The girls then go on location to a gorgeous mansion for their photo shoot. They are dolled up in body paint to portray statues who are having life breathed into them for the first time by a hot male model. Jane is at a bit of a loss as to what to do, and when she gets continual criticism from Nigel and Jay she starts to cry. Interestingly enough, they're both happy just to see an actual emotion coming from her. Chelsey does a good job, as does Kayla who seems to have overcome her trepidation about male models and rocks the shit out of statue posing. Ann brings her knowledge of art and sculpture to bear on this challenge, though the judges are concerned that she doesn't emote. Chris starts off okay in her shoot, but eventually the pain of her twisted ankle becomes evident. Nigel tells us that he simply thinks that she's over it and has signed out. With Kyle Hagler of IMG as a judge for the week, Kayla gets the best photo, leaving Chris and Jane in the bottom two. In the end it's Chris who leaves, to go live with her six-head in peace.

Previously on Top Model: The girls arrived in Italy and with a few exceptions rocked a syphilitic Casanova-themed shoot in million degree heat. They then complained about their adequate lodging, because with their wild level of success they deserve mansions. In the end, the judges felt that Liz had way too many complaints and too few goods. Five bitches remain!
The girls return back to their model apartment and Kayla is thrilled to see that they've cropped everyone else out of her best-of-week photo to display it as digital art. Chris reminds us that she was in the bottom two next week, and we see Tyra telling her that the competition is stiff, and what's taken her this far (her personality) may not take her to the next level. It's a real personality versus forehead showdown. Chris interviews that even though she doesn't want to go home, she's preparing herself in case it happens. There's no room for mistakes, and so she has to be amazing and stunning. For some reason, Chris theorizes to Kayla that the judges may get rid of two people this week. I guess that did happen last season. Chris actually hopes that they have a double elimination, though she does acknowledge that she should be careful what she wishes for since she might be one half of the double elimination equation. But honestly, it seems like she knows her days are numbered and just wants to get it over with. At this point, you can't blame a girl for being tired of the bullshit. She says, "Pick somebody, let's meet IMG, let's get signed to somebody, and let's all go home." You're telling me, sister. Kayla tells us that Chris doesn't want this like the other girls do, and that really it's just a way to get her face out there. That seems totally legit because, amusing as she is, Chris isn't so much a model. I think she and her sibling who was eliminated long ago were gunning to be cast in some sort of Sister, Sister remake. Perhaps Tyra will take the Jackee role!
Meanwhile, Jane talks to her mother who correctly guesses that the cast has gone to Italy. Jane interviews that she never thought she would be in the top five. Choosing to pursue modeling was a total break from what was expected of her. Jane always wanted to play lacrosse at Princeton, and so deciding to quit and go on a dumb reality show was a huge risk. But Jane seems to have the goods, so even though I don't think she's going to win this show she could probably make a living being a model for a while. That sounds much more fun than being at Princeton, even if she does have to suffer through the pains of a normal-sized apartment in Milan.
