Eugena wishes her performance had spoken for itself instead of her having to tell the judges, but sometimes you have to tell people what you're feeling. She says that if she didn't want to be there, she wouldn't have made it this far. She's disappointed, and wishes she had explained herself better. I don't know. I don't think Eugena wanted to win that badly, probably because she's smart.
Back at home, Caridee is sad to see the good, kind-hearted Eugena leaving. She reads the note Eugena left for her, which says that she'd better walk her ass off on the runway, because the natural blonde needs to win. Caridee says that now the house is pure competition. It's the battle of the blondes! I added an exclamation point there because I'm trying to get myself pumped up! But I can't! No matter how hard I try! Seriously, why is this finale so boring?
The next day, the girls get Tyra Mail that has the word "Seventeen" in it. You know what that means! Today, both of the girls are shooting for Seventeen magazine. Whoever wins the show will have the shot they shoot today featured on the cover of the magazine. The Seventeen crew comes out. This includes Atoosa Rubenstein, Editor-in-Chief; Beau Quillian, Style Director, who looks absolutely humiliated and pissed off to be there; and photographer George Holz. Jay introduces them all and takes off. Caridee tells us that she loves the camera and always has had a passion for it. However, she was weird-looking and had her skin disease, so she never thought she would make it in the modeling industry. Caridee is weird-looking? Really? Atoosa says that Caridee is more than just a pretty girl. She's strong, she's confident, she's come out. And what better way to emphasize these points than to have her pose with a lollipop?
Then there's Melrose, who gets Caridee's lollipop sloppy seconds. They couldn't buy two lollipops? Melrose says that her gut says she freaked out the first week, but has been really trying her best. And she still didn't lose it when there was so much "personality questioning" going on. She says she feels like she found herself again this week, and really proved that she can do this. Atoosa says that Melrose has a unique look. She does? Atoosa adds that Melrose doesn't look like any other girl, and that this could work to her advantage. I don't find Melrose unique or interesting-looking at all. I mean, I think it's fair to highlight some of her strengths, but I don't know that that's a direction I would have gone in.
