Allison is next, and confirms for us that she is sporting the smallest bikini she's ever worn in her life. She also confirms that she doesn't usually feel like a sexy person. Too bad, because I think she's primed to enact someone's Holly Hobby fantasy. Allison is nervous, but this isn't all bad -- she tells us that sometimes nerves give you the adrenaline rush that you need. Allison beelines for the hairy fat Speedo guy and poses with him. Jay tells her that if she's going to do that she needs to get even closer. Without pause, she does it. Now that's commitment! Nigel yells, "Beautiful!" and also acknowledges that Speedo guy is getting the thrill of his life AND getting paid. Would that we were all so lucky. Nigel tells us that Allison was a bit of a surprise. She moved around the picture and made sense of it. After the shoot, Nigel tells Allison to believe in herself, for reals.
Teyona is next, and hopes that she once again does a good job with Nigel behind the lens. Jay says that Teyona is pretty close to being a true top model, but tends to hold her shoulders stiff and high like she's in a monster movie. But generally, she does a really good job. Nigel tells us in plain terms that she can model. She doesn't have the best swimsuit body per se, but knows how to move and understands angles and goes for it. Jay says, "Nigel likey," and suddenly I have post-traumatic flashbacks to Bret Michaels. Alas, I shall never be free. Anyway, Teyona is awesome.
This leaves Celia as the only one left to pose. She tells us that she was practicing in the trailer and obsessively looking at her face and body. Knowing the competition level around her, she says, she really needs to step up her game. Celia is wearing a pirate's eye patch for a bikini bottom. It is really something, and Celia should be commended for her regular waxing. When Celia gets to set and sees the array of weirdo extras, she's a little thrown. It was not what she had in mind when preparing for the shoot. Celia starts to pose, and looks pretty generic. Nigel tells her to interact with the Speedo guy, and Celia places a reluctant hand on his torso. You can't blame her for that one. When Jay and Nigel prompt for more interaction, she goes so far as to squeeze his man-boob. Now THAT is commitment. However, the results are still not impressive. Nigel tells us that they had a great set-up for Celia, but she wasn't connecting to the characters and felt removed from the whole scene. Nigel hands his camera to an assistant and goes on set to give Celia some ideas. Jay tells us that it's very embarrassing when a photographer has to jump in the shot and show the model what to do. Nigel caresses Speedo guy and then is grossed out by what he's been forced to do. Nonetheless, according to Jay, Nigel made the shot believable, and that is the job of a model. Celia picks up some sand and lets it fall, prompting an, "Ooh, Lord," from Jay. And not the good kind.
