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."
Liz is next, and gets a major case of the crazy eyes. Matthew tells her to look at the camera lens, and Liz says that she can't because her eyes are watering. Oooh, girl. You need to shut that trap. Liz explains to us that her shiny eyeshadow was running and it got stuck to her contacts. Well, if you want to be a model you must be willing to go blind. Liz blinks to try to clean her contacts. She explains why she's doing this, as if anyone on set cares about her pain. Jay interviews that Liz is a pain in the butt, and everything is a complaint with her. We get a montage of Liz's greatest complaints, and Jay says that you should be able to push through anything to deliver. Liz starts to go on about the film of protein covering her eyes, and Jay could give less than half a shit. He wishes that the earth was flat, and that the Silver Bullet had dropped her off of its side.
Back at the house, there is Tyra Mail of Doom. Someone will be eliminated. Kayla tells us that she could see Rhianna being in the bottom, because she's not multi-faceted, and as a model you need to be a chameleon. Chelsey tells us that she's been called third at every panel, and would feel better about being number one. She thinks that she has a chance at best photo this week. She is sorely mistaken. Chelsey thinks that Liz might go, just because of all the complaints. Liz says that it's frustrating not to be able to see and still wanting to excel at your shoot. As she contemplates the unfairness of protein film, we head to commercials.
When we return, it's panel time! We get backstage glimpses of Tyra towering over little Matthew Rolston, and then playing with her gum. She's wearing some serious Alexis Carrington wardrobe this week, along with big poufy hair. There are prizes, there are judges. Matthew Rolston is the guest judge. Kacey is up first for evaluation, and the judges mock her gold lame shoes. Tyra gives Kacey the shoes off her own feet, which seem to fit. ALT says that her photo is beautiful, and it reminds him of "an otherworldly lady from another time." Oh, that lady. Nigel loves her hand positioning, and wonders how much of it was Matthew directing her. Tyra says that this is a hard photo shoot, because you can hardly move, and some models might look dead. Matthew says that Kacey's inner life -- horrid as it is -- came through.
