The Jays bring the girls together, and as it happens they have some bad news to announce. Somebody's going home! Right now! As Lexie starts to worry, we head to commercials.
When we return, the Jays talk about the "issues" they had with some of the girls today. Liz got a stank attitude about her hair and its styling, and that shit does not fly when you're working with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld. Or Jay Manuel? Anyway: bad move. Sara didn't complain about her new look, but seemed uncomfortable in her photo shoot. Lexie felt that she embraced her new look, but she left her confidence in the hair chair. Then there's Terra, who was a big old complainer and cried a bunch during her makeover. Those are the things that clients and designers see, and that ostensibly make them fire you. And at this point, after watching the show for FOURTEEN SEASONS, these fools should have much better game than was displayed today. Particularly the complainers.
It's Terra who's eliminated. Jay tells her that she's exquisite, but their problem is that she doesn't believe that she belongs. Given some of her comments previously, that does seem true. However it has nothing to do with her crunk makeover behavior. Terra makes a half-hearted effort to stay by telling the Jays that she wants more time to show them what she can do. Jay Manuel says, "Well go out and show us." Burn! Both Jays give Terra particularly insincere hugs and send her on her way. Terra bawls in an interview as she says that it isn't right for them to send her home AFTER they cut her hair, which she hates. It does look much better, though, so she should get over that. Terra loves her sister, and says that she's her second chance. In the form of another body, which is much better at modeling. Chris cries a whole bunch as she says goodbye to Terra, and Liz cries too, probably because she was so close to the proverbial chopping block. The Jays tell the girls that they all look beautiful, but need to embrace and keep up their looks. Miss J. says, "No more model teardroplets. Pull it together, okay?" They really could not have less sympathy, which I actually appreciate. Their jobs have to be fairly hellish. Not coal miner hellish, but "dealing with Tyra Banks on a daily basis" hellish. Lexie tells us that she's happy to still be in the competition, and thinks that this surprise elimination was a wakeup call for everybody.
Back at the house, there is Tyra Mail! "It's one thing to get on top, but can you stay there? Love, Tyra." The girls fear either a heights-related challenge, or surfing. Surfing? Yeah, I don't know. Since Terra is gone, Chris has been kind of a mess. Kayla says that Chris basically let everyone know that her strength is missing. People are watching to see if she totally crumbles. Tweedledum without Tweedledee is like one really fat guy standing alone. Tragic.
