Previously on America's Next Top Model: Nekkid photo shoots! Cha-chas were in full display, much to the horror of Mr. Jay. The judges saw a side of Alasia they wish they hadn't -- namely, the back side -- and made a lot of fun of her. Gabrielle was neckless and uninspiring and got the boot. Alasia and Ren battled it out in the Top Model house and Ren confessionalized about the potential loss of her sanity. A windy, rainy beauty shoot proved challenging for Ren and Naduah, who landed in the bottom two. In the end, a cultish past wasn't enough to keep Naduah in the competition, and she was eliminated. Eleven bitches remain!
The girls head back to their house after last week's elimination and see Raina's best of week photo displayed as visual art. Brenda tells us that her last photo shoot didn't go well, and we're reminded that Tyra told Brenda she looked like Rue McClanahan when side lit. Brenda misses her adorable daughter, and coupled with her drastic haircut, she's having a bit of an identity crisis.
Then there's Ren. She tells us that she was 93% sure that she was going to be eliminated. We're reminded that Nigel told her she looked like she was in an ad for H1N1 vaccine. Nigel's trying to keep up with ALT, which, nice try. Normally, Ren would have quit and left the competition, but modeling is her mom's dream for her. Lest you think this is already weird, Ren tells the other girls that she doesn't get along with her mom. Or at least didn't until Ren's mom found out she was going to be on this show, and then started being really nice. Ren interviews that her mom favors her brother, because he takes a freaking shower every once in a while. Meanwhile, Ren is a dirtball. Ren says that her mom took her to the mall to shop for nice clothes and promised to pay for them, but then totally took off when it was time to check out. To make things worse, she left because she got a call from Ren's rival brother. Ren says that she does enjoy modeling, but the majority of her misery comes from the house and the drama. She didn't know it was going to be like this. Cycle 14, is all I'm saying. Do a little research before you sign that contract.
Tyra Mail! "ur fashion knowledge can really take u places. or maybe not. Love, Tyra." Anslee takes a minute to tell us that basically anyone would die to be where they are. In the tee-shirted words of Wham, choose life. Anslee says that much of what they have to do is difficult, but as a 23 year-old mom, being sleep deprived and doing things at odd hours works for her life. Simone tells us that she's always wanted to be a model, and adds that leaving school was a huge sacrifice. She gave up $25,000 worth of tuition, but says that she gave it up for something amazing. And really, having half of your head shaved and slowly getting your confidence beaten out of you is priceless. Simone says she has to let loose and start giving the competition her complete all to go from the middle of the pack to the top.
