Night falls and the girls receive their first Hawaiian Tyra Mail: "If you want to catch a break, you're going to have to go out there and get it. Love, Tyra." Bloody Eyeball thinks they will be fishing. Laura stands there, looking puzzled and waterlogged. The girls then lounge in their bedroom(s). Erin braids Laura's hair, and sings everyone the new song she made up. It goes, "My name's Nicole and I like art. My name is Jen and I like to fart. My name's Laura, I've got hair like a poodle. My name's Sundai and I love noodles. My name's Brittany and I like math. My name's Erin and I kick ass." The noodles bit at least is pretty great. What can I say? The girl knows how to lay down rhymes. I'd maybe change the last part, though, to "My name's Erin and I inspire wrath." Brittany agrees, as she interviews that Erin is the most annoying person in the house. She does a good impression of Erin freaking out and squealing and says, "Shut up. I can't take it. I can't take the voice anymore." Sadly, she says that in an interview, not to Erin's face. Erin, for her part, thinks that Brittany just sits around making faces. The judges like her well enough, but Brittany needs to watch her attitude since she's still up and down in how she performs. With that note of caution, we head to commercials.
When we return, it is a new day and the girls have made their way to the beach. They encounter a row of surfboards and two people. One is petite model and surfer Sofia Beschen. She's appeared on the cover of Surfing Magazine's swimsuit edition, and walked in New York fashion week. The other is the legendary Buzzy Kerbox, who pioneered something having to do with surfing. He's also appeared in Vogue and modeled for Ralph Lauren. My rule of thumb is: never trust a guy named Buzzy. Sofia tells the girls that surfing requires balance and good body awareness, which is also important for modeling. Sadly, however, you never encounter sharks in a photo studio. Today, Tyra wants the girls to learn how to surf. Laura drunk-interviews, "Holy shit, we're learning to surf!"
The girls first go through motions with the surfboards while they're still on the sand. Jennifer interviews that Buzzy and Sofia are the best surfing instructors one could wish for, because they're "totally cool" and "not all up on you." Unlike some other instructors we could mention, who roll their eyes and then do impressions of your failures. The girls appear to be having a bunch of fun, exemplified by Laura's big cheese and nod to the camera as she paddles her board into the waves. Nicole reminds us that in modeling, you're often thrown into unexpected positions -- like being knocked down by a mid-sized wave -- and have to work with it. Splash! Sundai, meanwhile, always wanted to surf but never thought she'd actually do it. You know, because she's an orphan. She's very inexperienced, so has to work harder than everyone. I think she's talking in general, here, since none of these shorties seems to be a whiz on the surfboard. In fact, Sundai seems to be doing better than a bunch of the girls. Brittany sees Sundai's success in standing on the board and gets some hope of her own. She reminds us that she's not just an introverted little geek. We realize this: we have seen your blurred cleavage.
