The girls have four hours total, and Brittany and Kara race into their car. Kara notes that Brittany is very competitive, so she makes a good partner. Laura drives while Nicole tries her hand at map-reading, and notes that she was pretty scared to drive in L.A. traffic, which is a lot more intimidating than what you'd find on the Dogpatch Expressway. She notes that if she puts a few dents and scratches into her own car (Pinto? El Camino? Whatever the Dukes of Hazzard drove?) it's okay, but banging up their nice rental is a whole different story. Rae and Sundai decide to go to the furthest location first, and as they pull out -- obeying the speed limit all the while -- Brittany and Kara speed past them. Brittany and Kara make it to designer Neil Lane first, with Rae and Sundai behind them. The latter team is thus forced to wait, while the clock ticks down valuable seconds. Neil Lane is a jewelry designer, and Kara is unsure how that will affect the go-see. As it turns out, Kara doesn't have pierced ears, which Mr. Lane notes is pretty much a disastrous thing. Did she not have a Piercing Pagoda in her local mall? At least Laura probably took a lighter to Grandma Wanda Sue's sewing needle and took care of that business her own self. Neil can't believe that Kara doesn't have pierced ears, and tells us that he wouldn't book her for a campaign. However, he thinks that Brittany is very glamorous and would definitely use her for a campaign.
Jennifer and Erin go first to designer Rozae Nichols. Erin tells us that she was nervous, since she's not that good with new people. Or old people. Just people, really. Rozae thinks that Erin needs to work on her confidence, but adds that she'd be perfect for a look book. Jennifer tells Rozae that she likes drama, and to bring out emotions in her photos. What Jennifer brings out in Rozae is mild distaste, as Rozae tells us that Jennifer is a very pretty girl, but her beauty is betrayed by too much makeup. Rozae would not book Jennifer. Sundai and Rae head into Neil Lane, and Sundai gives a big gasp when she learns that she's wearing about a half-million dollars worth of jewelry. She's not as comfortable with jewelry as Neil Lane would like, and he wouldn't book her. Basically, he can smell the foster home on her. Neil also isn't sure about Rae, and says that he doesn't know if she could carry off his jewelry on the runway.
