The judges review footage of the girls walking. Twiggy says that Melrose was wonderful. She showed the dresses and looked very confident. Tyra says that she didn't overcompensate and give ugly facial expressions. She looked like a real model. Nigel could see photograph after photograph in the crazy acting segment, and Miss J. notes that she did particularly well considering that the dress she was wearing was a little too big for her. Jay says that she was so graceful and beautiful, and Twiggy says she looked like she was floating.
And then, Caridee. She sucked, yo. Miss J. says that she needs to keep it pretty, simple, and strong. Nigel says that she loses herself, and looked better when she walked into judging. Tyra says that Caridee looked like she was holding her breath. And as far as the theatrical segment, Nigel says that it was all theatrics and no modeling. She also held the dress up the whole time so that no one could see what it looked like, and had a really ugly facial expression. Twiggy says that what Caridee has naturally is so wonderful, and Jay says that she has to trust in her beauty. He notes that she's handling standing in front of the judges -- which seems like it would be a more stressful situation -- better than she handled the runway show.
And then Tyra reminds us that the competition is not just based on the final runway show, but on the girls' overall performance in the competition. And then we take a trip down memory lane. We had supermodel stereotypes, in which Caridee's dumb blonde got raves. This was the shoot where Melrose sucked. Ha! Jay says that he thought she'd be gone that week. Then we see the celebrity couples shoot, in which both girls excelled. Then they posed with Fabio for a romance novel cover. Caridee was nice and gentle slash vulnerable-looking, whereas Melrose was sexy without looking raunchy. There were also the black and white photos Tyra shot. Caridee's rocked, and Melrose's was just okay. Nigel says that this was where he first saw that Melrose is a perfectionist, and also started to question whether she had natural ability. There was the matador shoot. Miss J. thinks it's strong and Nigel loves it, which is a bit of a change of tune from the first time they saw it. Jay Manuel says that this was reminiscent of the Caridee that they met in judging with the garter on her leg. Oooh, I forgot about that. Caridee says that she has really been trying to tone down the sex. Tyra says that Caridee doesn't even have a big booty and breasts like Tyra herself does, but that she has to think about how to do things to take that sexiness away, or she'll look like she belongs in a men's magazine. Melrose's matador shot was okay. And finally, Caridee rocked the Cover Girl ad, whereas Melrose was tight around the mouth and a bit plain in her expression. Tyra notes that Caridee excelled in the Cover Girl ad, while Melrose didn't, and on the runway Melrose excelled, while Caridee was actually pretty terrible. So the judges have a lot to think about. Or so they claim. I mean, come on.
