Six beautiful ladies stand before Tyra, but she only has five photos in her hands. Tyra calls the girl with the best photo first -- it's Allison! Oh, good for her. Teyona is called next, followed by Fo and Celia. This leaves Natalie and Aminat as the bottom two. Natalie is one of the prettiest girls in the bunch, and the judges look at her and think she's an obvious model. But what they see from week to week in her photos is obvious posing, and the judges have no truck with the uninspiring. The judges look at Aminat and think she has the best body in the competition, but she thinks she's doing more than she portrays. In her head she's a great model, in actuality she sucks. So who stays in the competition? It's Aminat! Holy crow. Natalie is annoying as all get-out, but Aminat is a pretty terrible model. Tyra gives Natalie a hug, and Natalie looks pissed. Tyra tells her that modeling is not about being pretty and taking pretty pictures. If it was, Natalie would be a supermodel. As it is, she's just plain-old-annoying Natalie. Tyra says that she hopes that what Natalie learned from the judges and Jay will teach her what she needs to get to the next level of her career, which hopefully will not entail bullshit televised modeling competitions. Natalie hugs the other girls, thanks the judges, and walks out.
Natalie exit interviews that this was the only panel for which she wasn't nervous. She's frustrated because she's going home when someone had a worse photo than her. The one thing she learned from this competition is that you have to have thick skin. Now she's going to go home and start over, but is still asking herself why she's the one to be eliminated. And, I mean, it's because she's a jerk. A jerk who's a better model than Aminat, but a jerk nonetheless. And Tyra is certainly not going to keep a girl who out-jerks her.

Tyra says even unconventional looking women can be models, but where does this madness end. Our vloggers have a theory.
