Fatima is next. While she poses, she remembers how embarrassing it was when kids made fun of her for living at a shelter. Sad music plays. She gets very emotional by the end of the shoot, which Jay thinks will make for a powerful picture. Backstage, Marvita tells Fatima that she knows Fatima's trying to sabotage her, and is keeping an eye out. Fatima says that people have stepped over her all her life, so when she met the other girls she felt like she had to put up a hard façade. Marvita has been through therapy, so she knows that Fatima needs to stop putting up a guard. She tells her to try being nice for a change. Fatima's not so sure. She says it's hard, and Marvita's all, "It ain't hard, girl." Marvita tells Fatima that she knows what it's like to want to be on guard. She's been molested and raped. Fatima is touched to hear Marvita's story, and to see how strong she is. Fatima sincerely apologizes to Marvita, and Marvita thinks that their problems are, for the most part, patched over. Oh, boo! ["Well, yeah, but if they're allies now, then there's a good chance they'll gang up on somebody before too long. And that will be pretty good." -- Miss Alli]
Dominique is next, looking a lot more butch than the other girls. Jay says that she's going for gold. And then there's Stacy-Ann, 22, from Miami, who really can't imagine what it would be like to be homeless. Nonetheless, she rocks the red plaid headwrap. If you gave her a bottle in a paper bag to drink out of, her photos would be art. Claire, 24, from New York is next, and is happy to be raising awareness about homelessness, and particularly about the segment of homeless people who wear beaver fur Russian hats. Whitney, 20, from Atlantic Beach, Florida, says that she's dressed in nothing that she would intentionally wear. But she understands the greater meaning. If she tried being homeless for a while, maybe she wouldn't have to live in the plus-sized ghetto. Then there's Amis. She is wearing a kicky scarf, as the homeless often do, along with rubber boots. It's like a Phil Collins video come to life! That is to say, she sucks.
