Marjorie is up first. She is wearing a turban. Do I need to tell you any more? She is nervous that her acting skills aren't top notch. When in doubt, accentuate the turban. Marjorie is posing as a star who has to pee but can't get out of her dress. Or, rather, a hunchback in a turban who has to pee but can't get out of her dress. As it happens, Marjorie is rather brilliant. Jay gives all the credit to Tyra, as he is contractually obligated to do. Samantha is next. She is posing as a starlet who is trying to read cue cards, but a bright light is shining in her eyes. Sam tries on all sorts of strange vaguely European accents. She starts off rough, but eventually gives a couple of good shots. Elina is assigned the role of an overemotional actress who can't stop crying. She is of course terrified that she might have to show an emotion other than mother-hating. Jay notes that Elina has one fake tear rolling down her face, but today he wants real tears. If she starts I'm kind of afraid that she'll flood the theater. Elina interviews that she needs to lose control, and as such this might be her last shoot. Commercials.
Oh, and it's Whitney's My Life As A Cover Girl. An average day for Whitney involves...wait, trick question! Now that she's a cover girl, there are no average days. Blah blah Outlast blah.
When we return, Jay asks Elina to let go. He would hate for the judges to say that Elina is beautiful and takes great pictures but is consistently controlled. Well, they've been saying it from day one so deal. Therapist Jay tells Elina that everyone has insecurities, and at the base level it usually comes down to, "Are we good enough?" Wow, what a different take on the concept. Elina interviews that she hates showing insecurities, and hates crying in front of people. Elina begins posing, and Jay tells her that he wants to see her look like she thinks she's not good enough. He asks where she feels she's not good enough. As Mike shoots, Elina says that she doesn't trust herself. Jay asks, "In whose eyes are you afraid of disappointing? Yourself or someone else?" That's the kind of suspect command of the language that leads you to become the Republican nominee for vice president. J. / Jay in 2012! We cut to a teary Elina interviewing that she's tired of not letting it out. She knows this is something she has to get through to be successful. Jay tells Elina that she looks the best she has in the whole competition. She's learned to let go, which she says is the most important thing. I'm sure when she gets home her mom is going to beat her with some wire hangers for this display.
