The girls head to hair and makeup and get their wardrobe, which consists of tiny scraps of clothing. It's like the leftover bits Joseph used to make his Technicolor dreamcoat, but shrunk in the dryer. Sutan sasses to Teyona, "If it seems like I'm ignoring you, it's because I am." Celia tells us that she has to get a number one picture, or else she's completely doomed. I don't know why she's so convinced that she's screwed. Fo is excited to show Nigel that she's improved since the days that she was crying over being plain Jane's brother. Teyona is shocked at how small the bathing suits are. Anda or Masha tells her that all the bottoms are tiny. This must be true, as all we see of backsides today are blurry bits.
Aminat and her blurry bottom are first. Nigel introduces her to the extras on her set. Aminat explains that they were all expecting the extras to be fellow models, but in fact they are weirdo locals. There is one hairy fat guy in a Speedo who it is going to be difficult to outshine. With such a weird mix of people on set, Aminat tells us that you really have to be the focus. Nigel is excited to shoot Aminat because she's got real swimsuit model potential. She's got long limbs and beautiful skin and looks amazing, but she needs to be in control of how amazing she looks, says Nigel. It's as if she's not fully connected. At the end of the shoot Nigel tells her that she's got it -- a banging body and great-looking face -- but she focuses too much on what's being said and what goes on around her. Jay says, "Be you." Frankly, in this case, I don't know if that's good advice.
Fo is up next in her microscopic ensemble. Fo interviews that she's not worried about standing out, because she does stand out in the crowd. Her strategy is to look strong and do what Nigel wants. She does a few poses and Nigel notes that she's not the tallest girl on the beach, so needs to stretch her limbs. At some point in the shoot, Jay tells Fo that she's being too safe, and that if she's aggressive she'll give the shot more of an editorial vibe. He interviews that Fo goes from pose to pose, and it's forced, commercial, and just plain not right. At one point he yells, "You're giving me Gollum again." Ooh, it's true. Fo also didn't interact with the extras in the scene, and it came off as disingenuous and like remedial modeling. Bad, bad and worse.
