Five girls stand before Tyra, but she only has four photos in her hands. And those photos represent the girls who are still in the running towards becoming America's Next Top Model. And the model who has best photo is Laura, for the second week in a row. Sophie is the runner up, despite the fact that nobody really seemed to like her photo. Was everyone else REALLY that bad? Annaliese? She is called third as Alisha starts crying. Yes, as expected Eboni and Alisha are in the bottom two. Tyra says that both girls have some of the highest potential in the competition. From week to week, the judges think that they're amazing in person. But then they're also disappointed from week to week when they see their photos. So who stays in the competition? Alisha does. Or, rather, she would have. She cries and says that she can't stay, because she doesn't want to take an opportunity away from Eboni or the other girls when she feels like she wants to get the hell out of Dodge. She'd rather walk away to get her spirit back and feel like Alisha again. She sobs and says that she doesn't want to appear ungrateful. Tyra, without even a thimble full of sympathy or any other sort of kind feeling, says that she doesn't think that Alisha is ungrateful. She adds that she can leave whenever she wants to, but Eboni will be leaving with her. And with that, Tyra gets a default double elimination.
Eboni tells us that she's had a lot more lows than highs when it's come to panel. She doesn't know if she'll stick to the 30-Never brand (OH GOD PLEASE DON'T) but will keep in mind all the advice she's gotten along the way. Tyra hugs Alisha and says that she has a ton of potential, but there's something mentally that's not connecting. A still-crying Alisha tells us that Britain's Next Top Model was hard, but this is harder, and she doesn't want to forget herself. She can't relate to the pictures of herself that have appeared at panel, and feels like they aren't really her. She's tried to be strong and appear happy, but right now she's just broken down and busted up and isn't going to take it anymore. Alisha's mom told her to come home if she lost her spirit, and Alisha has officially lost her spirit. Well, that was sincerely a stunner of an ending! I am quite sad, as Alisha was my favorite, but hopefully she's off modeling competently in a magical place where she doesn't have to deal with any Gamatronican bullshit.
Next week: Go-sees! And the girls pose in a life-sized perfume bottle that probably has the stink of Lisa D'Amato all up in it.
