Next we have Kayla. She's got a giant crab on her side and serious Ariel hair. Jay notes that Kayla had a regal elegance about her and looked so beautiful. He says, "She actually literally can be the Ariel of the day." So she can breathe underwater and be BFFs with a fish and a crab? How exciting for her! Chelsey is next, and looks insane. Jay and Matthew tell her to make her mouth much softer. She tries, and Matthew gives an ambiguous, "...Wow." The judges will later call her a drag queen, and it's true that she could be a Drag Race reject. I'd love to see her lip sync for her life. Next we have Esther, who finally looks totally gorgeous. Matthew says that she had unexpected movie star quality. This styling really agrees with her as, perhaps, does lying on her back.
Chris is up next, and expresses her intention to be the fun and goofy one. She attempts to joke with La Rolston, but eventually decides to get down to business. Jay says that Chris is poised, beautiful, and surprisingly together. He's also surprised that she was able to keep her mouth closed for so long. Chris takes Matthew's advice and poses with her hand covering her giant forehead. Lexie is next, and she says that, after tanking last week, she knows she has to exude confidence and emotion through her face. Matthew asks a lackey to splash the top layer of water a bit, and Lexie gets all freaked out and says that her vision was skewed and she feels like she has to throw up. She expresses this backstage, and Kacey wonders if Lexie is trying to psych everybody out. Speaking of Kacey, she's next onset and, much to the chagrin of everyone, rocks it. Matthew says she has pride, confidence, and a regal quality.
Jane poses next and Matthew encourages her to extend her neck by lifting her chin high. We don't see much of her, so she must have done fine. Then there's Ann, who can do no wrong. She has a choker on, and Jay tells her that she's totally hot. Rhianna watches Ann, and redoubles her own effort to stand out. She tells us that she was overwhelmed with joy when she found out that she was shooting with Matthew Rolston. The experience is so surreal, that it feels like she's floating. Now I see why they haven't used much Rhianna interview footage so far. Rhianna's photos are looking very Elizabethan, and Jay says that the period feel was a problem. Also a problem is the fact that Rhianna's had the same expression week after week. She really did peak early with "Willow."
