Nicholas gives each model a critique. He thought that Eboni taking off her jacket was smart and sexy. Alisha's wink was smart and classy. Annaliese was overpowering in her fight, and really looked like she knew what she was doing. Laura removing her ponytail holder showed that she was remembering her true self, and that she was in this challenge not to fight, but as a top model. Oh, come on. He really does just want to bone her. Sophie held on to Nicholas as they entered the scene, which was good. But the winner is Laura. She gives Nicholas a big hug, and humps his leg a little in her excitement. In response, he stares at her boobs as he congratulates her. And really, I do think that the fact that she got to practice with Nicholas gave her a huge advantage, as she got all that flirting/eye-fucking time in. I think it's hard for a horny international movie star to be objective in those circumstances. Alisha, of course, is royally pissed.
After a break, Laura is celebrating her challenge victory back at the house while everyone else stews about it. Sophie, who I think is less pissed than everyone else, "jokes" that Nicholas picked Laura at the winner because they were eye-sexing and he wants to penis-sex her when she comes back to Hong Kong to be in his video. As Alisha taps her weave, Laura says that she wouldn't mind having sex with Nicholas. Wouldn't mind! If his penis happened to fall into one of her orifices she WOULDN'T MIND. It wouldn't be that much of an inconvenience or anything. Eboni tells us that Laura admitted she didn't do the best on the challenge, which is like admitting that she seduced Nicholas. Laura says that sometimes it's the extra spark that will push you to the top. It's hard to tell whether she's talking about a personality spark, as in charisma, or physical chemistry spark, as in blow jobs. Eboni then busts out with the statement that Laura is sleeping her way to the top. Laura is really pissed about this, and I have to agree that it is a completely untrue statement, based on the fact that there really hasn't been anyone around for her to shtup. If Eboni had said that Laura WOULD sleep her way to the top if given the chance, the statement might have legs.
Twenty minutes later, Eboni is asleep and Laura's rage has had enough time to boil and bubble and demand a release. She storms back into the room and wants to take on anyone who thinks that she would actually fuck her way to the top. Eboni claims that she was just going along with what Sophie was saying, and Sophie admits that she probably should have stopped earlier even though she was clearly joking. Laura says that she has more self-respect than that, and it bugs her that anyone would ever think such a thing. Alisha asks us to pause for a second, and notes that Laura is a slag. Slag sounds so much better than slut, doesn't it? The Brits and their innate elegance! Annaliese points out that they still know Laura as the over-the-top sexual creature who has orgasms on shoots. It all smells a bit fishy to her. Pun intended, I think. Eboni non-apologizes that she's sorry if Laura was offended, and claims that wasn't her intent even though it obviously was. And my final word on the whole thing is that I think when Laura copiously sleeps with people, she doesn't do so with the idea of advancement in mind. So, she'd sleep with Nicholas whether or not she won the challenge. And while I'm certain that I would find Laura's constant sex-talk irritating, when it comes to the actual sex all I can say is go get 'em, girl, and use a condom. In other news, Eboni is sick of Laura attacking her all the time for no reason (and sometimes for a reason).
