And that's everybody! The girls take another pass on the runway in front of the fans. Sadly, no one yells anything else mean to Alexandria. Everyone lines up, and Tyra announces that fourteen beautiful young (HAHAH) ladies are standing before her, and that for this cycle of America's Next Top Model they're looking for something extra special. And thus, not only photos but personalities are being judged, including how the girls worked the crowd, and how the crowd responded to them. Their potential to be America's Next Top Model All-Star will be taken into account, which means that they've already determined who the winner is, and these next twelve weeks will be an enjoyable exercise in futility. Tyra then says one of my favorite things she has ever uttered: "We will continue this judging... in private chambers." ALT starts to give the best reaction as soon as she says "chambers," but the shot is cut before we see the full extent of its conclusion.
The Jays ask the crowd to stick around so they can chat with them a little about who they did and did not like, and we see the results of their man-in-the-crowd interviews. A young lady named Tiffany tells Jay that Allison has been her favorite for a long time. Someone else with poor judgment likes Alexandria, a pigtailed lady prefers Bianca, and a young, lovestruck dude is all about Isis. And then Jay talks to one particularly animated guy who says, "Alexandria needs to go home. I hate her. Even though I love her, I hate her too." It is unclear whether he is the same person who yelled mean things at her. Backstage, Alexandria says that she didn't think that people would stop talking behind her back, but she didn't think it would all happen in such glorious relief tonight. She's shocked -- and dismayed -- to know that the fans have weight in the judges' decision. She says that one negative person who doesn't know her could end up sending her home. But all of Top Model fandom has actually elected that guy a representative. I stand behind the process.
