Finally there's McKey. She does so well in her clean pose that Tyra can't even think of a vaguely amusing comment. All she says is, "That girl...she can model." Tyra then decides to challenge McKey during the glam shot by having her done up in an A Clockwork Orange face with the one crazy eye. This at least gives Tyra the opportunity to say, "Work that eye!" as she shoots McKey, which is kind of awesome. To be frank, though, the makeup looks pretty stupid. But as it was Tyra's idea, everyone on her payroll will extol its brilliance until the last bag of weed in Amsterdam has been smoked. That's a wrap!
Back at the house, there is Tyra Mail. Someone is going home. Elina and Sam talk about how excited they are to see their pictures tomorrow, while Marjorie merely hopes that she's not eliminated. She interviews that the entire competition has been really difficult for her, whereas people like Elina seem to never doubt themselves and think they have this in the bag. Elina, conversely, thinks she has it in the bag. She thinks she's done what she can do to impress Tyra, and if Tyra isn't impressed all Elina can do is rip her hair out and scream. Which, in fact, would probably make a good photo. A dollar short, you know? With this, we head to commercials.
We enter panel. Tyra has apparently just rushed over from painting her hotel room and didn't have time to change. There are prizes, there are judges. Jay Manuel is the guest judge for the week, which seems to make everyone nervous and/or bored. Sam is up first for evaluation. She tells the panel that she made it to four go-sees, and Tyra announces that Sam booked two jobs. She must at least be happy that she's sticking with her pattern of mediocrity. Oh, and then it's time to learn Tyra's inspiration for the photo shoot. It will come as a shock to you to know that Tyra was her own inspiration. Photographer Ruvan Afanador shot Tyra for The New York Times Magazine, and asked if he could photograph her with no makeup. Tyra, against the better judgment of drag queens all over the world, said yes, and the idea for this shoot was born. In any case, back to Sam. Her clean photo is great. Nigel says that it looks like a Calvin Klein ad, and Paulina says that she wants to see Sam like this all the time. It's Nigel's favorite shot to date, and he says that if Sam looked like that and had that attitude at her go-sees, she'd book every job. The glam shot is also pretty fab. Jay tells Sam that she made Tyra so excited while she was shooting her, and that's really the job of every model. Kudos all around!
