Next up is Aminat. Nigel exclaims, "Goodness me!" and I don't know if it's good or bad. Miss J. likes it, saying that her expression completes the story. Tyra adds, "It's kinda nice, girl!" and Benny says that Aminat is a natural poser. Good work! Fo is next, and she is posed in a similar way to London. Paulina says that the children seem random, Fo doesn't relate to them, and this is her least favorite photo of Fo. Then there's Natalie. Nigel thinks she looks like Keira Knightley, even though she doesn't. This is all an excuse to allow Tyra to bust into her British accent, which makes me think of Sweeney Todd and meat pies. However, Natalie's photo is stunning and a really great fashion pose. Nigel tells her that if she'd turned her face upward she would have caught the light and the photo would have been even better.
Kortnie is next. Her photo is also greeted with silence until Tyra asks for a close-up of the face. When they get it, Benny Ninja exclaims, "Sour!" Nigel asks Kortnie what she was thinking, and Kortnie says she imagined traveling a very long way and being excited. Paulina is surprised by this. Nigel says that Kortnie's photo doesn't look like a fashion shot, and the look in her eyes is a bit dead. Tyra tells her that she needs tension, which is the go-to commentary of the season. She tells Kortnie that she underperformed and needs to push hard, so that the photographer has to pull her back. Tahlia is next, and her photo is greeted with a chorus of wows. Nigel tells her that it's better than exquisite, and is in fact the best picture that he's seen so far. She's beautiful and looks fantastic, and the other girls want to eat their weaves. Tahlia is giving the most attitude of all the models in her photos, but in person, according to Paulina, she's giving the least amount. Tyra tells her to stop wearing floods, and Nigel tells her that she's wearing her hair in a Something About Mary 'do. I don't think Tahlia gets the reference, which somehow makes it even worse.
Celia, the challenge winner, is last. Nigel tells her that she's being upstaged by one of the kids standing behind her, and Paulina agrees. It's not good. Tyra tells Celia that her pose is nice, but there's no story in her eyes. When you recline, says Miss J., you need to lift your body a bit so you don't sag into yourself. Of course, Celia is a contemporary of Carol Channing, so something's going to sag some way, no matter how much you try to lift.
The judges deliberate. London doesn't relate to her background and has no legs. However, she looks magical when the light catches her eyes. Sandra had a great photo but as boring as homemade soap, according to Miss J. Hey! I've made homemade soap. And yeah, I guess it is kind of boring. Nigel thinks that Sandra relies on pretty. Benny Ninja thinks she's clueless. Allison is adorable, according to Paulina, and has a very specific "love it or hate it" look. Kortnie is not model quality, if you ask Benny, but Nigel thinks she's gorgeous and stands out in a crowd. Paulina agrees that she has gorgeous legs, but Miss J. corrects her by saying that Kortnie is knock-kneed. This of course leads into an inspirational story about how Tyra overcame knock-knees as a child. Miss J. likes Aminat and says she has a great picture. Tyra likes her face, but isn't so sure about the wide shot. Paulina loves Fo, but doesn't see anything good in her photo. Celia's pose this week is the same as when Nigel shot the girls, and he says you can't use the same pose over and over again. Tahlia's picture is the best of the week, and Tyra can't believe how Tahlia transforms in her photos. Natalie is dull and not inspirational, according to Nigel. Tyra wants her to get personality that's as good as her pictures. Teyona is a model, says Nigel, but it doesn't come through in person. Benny thinks that her pose is sour, but Tyra thinks it's sweet and sour. And Tyra loves sweet and sour, because ribs come in that flavor. The judges have reached a decision.
