The girls return. Nine beautiful ladies stand before Tyra, but she only has eight photos in her hand. And those eight photos represent those who are still in the running to become America's Next Top Model. The first name called is Jessica, who also has the best photo of the week. Well-deserved. I guess molesting Nigel brings you luck. Angelea is called next and does her signature cat-claw "reow!" move, which Tyra reciprocates. When this turns to hissing, we'll know to get out the spray bottle. Krista is called next, followed by Alasia, Anslee, Brenda, and Raina. This leaves Tatianna and Alexandra in the bottom two. Alexandra is beautiful and statuesque, and has a body coveted by many women. Unfortunately, she doesn't know what to do with all the wonderful body that she has. The judges think she can do much better. Tatianna's photo this week was not good. All of her fantastic shots have been luck, which make the judges wonder if she has any skill at all. So who stays? Alexandra. She gives Tatianna a big hug, and takes her photo.
Tyra tells Tatianna that she's an anomaly -- she has some of the prettiest photos in the competition, but doesn't quite get it. However, she has potential and just needs to develop the skill. Or go back to draining bodies of their precious life fluid. Tatianna says that she's disappointed herself. She didn't know what her talents were coming into the competition. She doesn't want to stop pursuing modeling -- she plans to take Tyra's advice and see what she can do, though she's sad about leaving.
Next week: the girls work some New York attitude at their Cover Girl shoot, and there is trash talking galore!
