Janice starts it off, saying that Shannon blew her away at the fashion show. KLS agrees, "Shannon kicked Adrianne's butt," and only Not-Eric-Nicholson says he thinks Shannon was trying to do "an imitation of a model" and that Adrianne was at least doing something unique. Sucking. KLS thinks that Shannon isn't nearly edgy enough for today's fashion world, which KLS thinks is "smoking pot and getting caught." Edgy. Tyra pulls out her list of each of the girls and her notes from the semi-finals in L.A., and next to Adrianne, in Tyra's handwriting, she's written the word, "NO!" Next to Shannon she wrote, "Dear Mom: I learned how to spell 'no' today. Please note, this part I am dictating."
Adrianne and Shannon return to the room. Tyra stands up and speeches, "One of you is about to be a star in a matter of minutes. Your life is about to change." Is a wealthy relative about to die? Because from the news we've been getting from the front lines, their lives are pretty much exactly the same. When "I'm gonna make it to New York" means that Shandi is working at a Walgreen's on 34th Street, well, what is a "star," I ask you. Nevertheless, Tyra regards a shrouded object behind her and continues on, "The winner's picture is hanging behind me, and when the cloth is dropped, it will reveal who will be America's Next Top Model." Tyra regards Adrianne and tells her, "Adrianne, you have transformed like Cinderella." Whose life has been stuck at permanent midnight since the minute the show has ended. To Shannon, she tells us, "You walked that runway last night like a diva. You stole that show. That show was yours." They hold hands. The shawl comes down. Adrianne is America's Next Top Model. Adrianne almost goes down, and Shannon immediately tells us in a confessional that she's glad she made it this far. And then, gone. Tyra runs out to hug her and Adrianne does the charming tongue-wagging yell. Janice gives her a hug and yells, I think, "I didn't vote for you!" Awwww. She can get so jealous of humans. "A lot is going to change," Adrianne tells us. "And it kicks so much ass." Classy.
