With no further ado, the girls all get shuttled to hair, makeup and wardrobe. Jane gives Ann a pep talk, telling her that she needs to go out there, walk really well, and not fall. Jane tells us that Chelsey has had her opportunity to model already, and Ann deserves it. She's firmly Team Ann. Kayla, however, is solidly in the Chelsey camp. She tells Chelsey that she should win, since Ann gets tired after five seconds of work. How strange that we've never seen that! Chelsey adds that Ann doesn't want it as badly. Kayla interviews that Ann has a really good shot, but she wants to see Chelsey win. Krista asks Ann if she's nervous about the walk, and Ann admits that she is. Krista advises a nice big breath before walking on the runway, because after that everything will go blank. It's going to be Ann, the runway, and her dream. Ann is a little bit in love with Krista, and rightfully so.
Preparations continue. Ann stands outside and talks to her family, and then Tyra comes to greet them. She hugs everyone. We then cut to a bawling Ann, likely post-show, saying that her family has never seen her model or on the runway, so it's nice to have them there. Tyra reminds Ann to be herself, and just walk in a way that feels natural and cool to her rather than trying to emulate other models. Cut back to bawling Ann saying that to make her parents proud makes her really, really happy, and to be able to do something this big is just awesome. Tyra high-fives Ann's family and notes that the five of them would make a great basketball team.
Tyra then goes to talk with Chelsey and her family. She notes that Chelsey looks like both of them, adding that you can't just rely on what mommy and daddy created. Chelsey has taken her good genes, and has amazing talent, so is the whole package. Chelsey's family also have never seen her do runway, so she's excited to have them there as well. Tyra advises her to let go of the ideal of perfection when she's walking. After Tyra leaves, Chelsey's mom admits she was thisclose to telling Tyra that Chelsey's older brother had, and probably still has, a huge crush on her.
As the audience fills in, the models line up backstage and there are last-minute preparations such as shoe-fringe trimming. Tyra steps out on the runway to introduce the show. She speaks in Italian for a minute, then asks how she did. She seems to get off the stage in a hurry, which must be editing. Ann tells us that there's no room for mistakes, and she and Chelsey have to step it up. And then, the music is cued. The curtain opens and Krista stands there in a pink diaphanous dress that says, "I've just been touched by Cavalli." So apparently we've gone from "Ghost Brides" to "Designer/Molester." Looking at the design, I'd wager it was definitely a bad touch. Krista walks, looking kind of awesomely mean. There are a bunch of models who know what they're doing, then Kayla and Liz. Finally, it's Ann's turn. She steps out on the runway to a song that chants, "Sex sex sex sex" repeatedly. Ann tells us that she stepped on the runway and felt really good and full of adrenaline. Sadly, her walk is unfortunate in a number of ways. In addition to her usual lumber, she's taken cues from crazy-eyed Real Housewife of New York Ramona Singer. I guess this is what she means by looking terrified all the time. At least she doesn't fall. Chelsey comes out next, wearing a pretty flattering mini-dress. She notes the number of important people there, and says it's very humbling that all this is happening just for her and Ann. Chelsey's walk is serviceable, but not overly impressive.
