The girls head to hair and makeup, and hairstylist Mitch Stone tells Molly that she's going to be the first up. Last week she was complaining about always going last, so maybe this will get her to shut her maw for a change. Although given that there are only two photos that are happening, I guess that's not really so significant. Molly thinks that the blondes stand a good chance, and adds that they've all individually received best-of-week photos, while none of the brunettes have. She thinks they might have an edge. Make-up artist Gloria Elias-Foeillet, who apparently has a fancy French husband, dabs at Monique with a sponge, as Monique preemptively complains about the mud. She notes that she's been trying hard all competition not to be sexy, which is going to be very difficult when she's naked and draped across other naked ladies. However, she likes her group of brunettes and thinks that they'll be great. Wardrobe stylist Monique Peters twists the straps of what look to be identical black swimsuits to add a little flair to each girl. Kasia reminds us that she's the fiercely real girl. She's okay with that, and says that she just has to find her angles and will be fine. She should be more than okay with it, as she looks positively radiant and fabulous standing next to a half-naked and skeletal Mikaela, who has apparently not eaten a decent meal since she was in utero.
The girls are covered in mud, and Alexandria celebrates by doing a pirouette. She says she feels really powerful, like she just crawled out of the earth. That's a nice contrast to her usual status of just having crawled from under a bridge. The blondes are indeed up first, and position themselves in a big, muddy heap. Jay tells them not to get so wrapped up in individual modeling that they forget about the built-in interaction. Brittani tells us that the blondes all blend together into a mass of straw-like hair. Molly is confident in her ability to rise out of the bottom two, while Jay loves what Hannah's giving. Jonathan wants a little more intensity from Alexandria. Jay says that Molly and Hannah are in the middle and owning the shot, while Alexandria and Kasia aren't connecting. He tells Kasia that she seems to be questioning what she's doing on the end. Kasia tells us that in this shoot there wasn't a whole lot of room for movement, and she didn't want to make a disturbance. However, she needed to make herself stand out and so repositions a bit, which seems to please Jay.
