Finally there's Alasia, who is inspired by interpretive dance. To the surprise of everyone, she really turns it out. She tells us that Troy taught her how to put emotion into her body, and Jay exclaims that her shoot was gorgeous. She's thrilled, and that's a wrap!
The girls return to their house, and get the skull and crossbones Tyra Mail. Someone's getting eliminated. Ren tells the other girls that she misses her life. Raina asks Ren where she'd be, if she could be anywhere. Anslee replies for her: "In a bar, in Los Angeles." Ren tells us that this is the most hostile environment she's ever been put into. She doesn't think that people understand how hard it is. We lived through "Respeito," Ren. We know. Anslee points out with glee that Ren looks like she's going to cry. Ren tells the others to fuck themselves. Brenda tells us that she may not take the best pictures, but she'll be really mad if Ren stays over her, since Ren doesn't even want to be there. Tell it to Naduah as we head to commercials.
And hey! It's the CoverGirl Top Model Lounge! With past faves Bianca and Laura! Laura thinks that Ren should appreciate her hand-picked status, and says it's clear that she doesn't want it as bad as the other girls do. Bianca agrees, and says that the look is nothing without the drive. On to the next girl, because there's plenty more.
When we return we head to panel. And dear Lord. How exactly to describe Tyra's ensemble? Camel toe in space? It's a nude tapered-leg jumpsuit with Star Trek shoulders and a sheer, low-cut panel in front that exposes the center of her dowdy brassiere. There is only one word for this: dreckitude. There are prizes, there are judges. ALT is still rocking the giant judicial cloak. Sean Patterson, the president of Wilhelmina, is the guest judge.
Jessica is first for critique with her salsa photo. Nigel says that it looks real, and like Jessica can dance, but it needs more emotion. Tyra agrees that it's nice, but says she'd like to see more fashion in the pose. It's too "on the nose." And then it's time for another important life lesson from ALT: a pointed toe in an ankle-strap shoe is patently gauche. Sean Patterson says that to have ALT tell you that anything is patently gauche is actually kind of a cool thing. ALT seems unimpressed, except with himself. Next up is Raina, and Nigel thinks her jazz photo is very cool. Sean says that there's some athleticism to it as well. Tyra tells Raina that she had ten best shots, and this is just one of them. Raina is kind of a ringer. Anslee is next, portraying rhythmic dance. ALT does not like it, because she looks like an empty-souled waxwork. Not fashion. Sean says her face looks beautiful, but too conscious. She's another victim of being on the nose.
