Back at home there is Tyra Mail. Someone is getting the boot of Brazilian leather. Allison interviews that her shoot went as good as she could have hoped, but she's still a bit anxious about panel, and also excited. Aminat interviews that she also feels good about her performance, and is certain that it will be rewarded. Teyona says that her call for the final three includes herself, Allison and a mystery third. She's just not sure if it will be Celia or Aminat, since each of them has had good weeks and bad weeks. Celia is feeling pretty good about her shoot, but notes that with only four people left anyone could go. On that ominous note, we head to commercials.
With that, it's panel time! There are prizes, there are judges. And, ugh. Ann Shoket is the guest judge. She waves stupidly, because that's how she rolls. Tyra says that the girls shot in the jungle with "some retired model that likes to think of herself as a photographer every now and then." If only it had been Janice Dickinson. It is my great sadness that she is too constantly drunk and volatile to even guest-star on the show anymore. Allison is up first for critique, and Miss J. notes that she, of all people, should be able to pull off looking like a bird. When Allison's photo appears, there are noises of delight from all of the judges, along with a few cries of, "Gorgeous!" and "Stunning!" Nigel tells her that she's not overwhelmed by the hair and makeup, which is one of the hard things about a shot like this. Ann tells Allison that she's sweet and vulnerable and actually looks like a little tiny bird. Um, excuse me Ann, but that's a tiny birdie-owl-pterodactyl to you. Tyra notes that Allison got this amazing shot in six frames. She was relaxed and elegant and -- yes -- like a baby owl in the nest. Tyra felt like a mama shooting Allison, and was very proud and impressed. Miss J. coos his response in bird speak, and Paulina gets a look that says, "It really is too bad that dancing thing didn't work out."
Teyona is up next. Paulina tells her that she looks absolutely glorious from face to body. Nigel, however, thinks that the top of her body is boxy, and he'd love to see her twisting a bit more. At this point in the competition, he says, she should really be finessing her body angles. Paulina totally disagrees. She says that Teyona hasn't been gifted with the best of all bodies, but knows how to fake it in a picture. Now that is a backhanded compliment if I ever heard one! "In this photo, you can hardly even tell that you're deformed!" Ann Shoket agrees with Nigel, but no one cares what she thinks. Miss J. likes Teyona's concave back. Tyra says that in hindsight, she wishes that she would have pushed Teyona harder. Her shot is good, but it's not the best.
