Next is Ann, who kind of struts, as much as one can strut in a kimono. She so wants to beat Eva. Kyoko says that Ann's walk is powerful, which is fine for jeans but not for a kimono. Ann's photo comes up on the big screen, and Janice criticizes her pose. She says that the Statue of Liberty looks better. And Janice knows of what she speaks, mostly because of her own familiarity with wretched refuse. She lifts her lamp beside the golden door, if you know what I mean. The judges say that Ann's headshot is good, but that a photograph must be judged on the whole package.
Next is Yaya, who does what appears to be the motions for "I'm a little teapot short and stout" at the end of the runway. Nigel says that Yaya will be one of Kyoko's favorites because of how well she shuffles. Let Kyoko speak for herself, you bully. Nigel's only criticism is that he saw very little Yaya. Well, from what we've seen of Yaya, I think we should be thankful for that. Tyra says she didn't like that Yaya put her hair up, and Janice tells her to take it out and let her fro shine through. Once she does this, the judges rave. Nolé says that Yaya's photo looks like a bonsai tree. Not a bonsai butterfly, which is good, but a bonsai tree, which is bad. Tyra criticizes Yaya's flat foot, which takes away from her already meager height.
Next, Norelle. Nolé says that Norelle looks sick, and like she's going to pass out. Nigel tells her that when she hits a catwalk, her look has to be perfection. Kyoko -- who, we might remember, is actually Japanese and in fact designed the kimono -- says that Norelle looks very natural and comfortable in a kimono. She likes it. The judges rave about Norelle's photo, which will become irrelevant in a few minutes. Janice says that Norelle's photo was fabulous, but that her walk was horrible.
And then, Eva. Janice says that Eva's walk is graceless, and that her eyes are out in space. Nigel says he doesn't know if it has been a hard week, but that Eva looks sloppy and down. Tyra asks if Eva is sad, and says, "Tell me what it is." Tyra asks if the competition is getting too tough for Eva. Eva tears up and says that this is the first week she has felt drained, spiritually. She says that she's dealing with it. Tyra says that the schedule of America's Next Top Model is going to be crazy. Yeah, I'd guess that given how Adrienne and Yoanna have set the world on fire. Nigel says that sometimes a model has to turn it on in a matter of minutes, and that other girls might take advantage of any perceived vulnerability. Eva's photo rules, and everybody knows it.
