What also makes the models nervous is having to stand on the slippery, rushing falls. Nastasia -- who appears to be wearing a bottlecap monocle that is somehow in accordance with her "pipes" theme -- tells us that it was straight up dangerous, and Tyra agrees. And I mean, I'm sure they're slippery, but the falls don't appear to be particularly high -- it's not like someone's going to actually plunge to her death, despite our hopes. Maybe a head bashing or two, which is of course nothing compared to Leila's earlier thigh bruise. Tyra tries to direct Nastasia as she poses in the falls, but it turns out that when you have rushing water right by your ears it's a little hard to hear. Nastasia has no idea what Tyra is saying but tries to be accommodating nonetheless, which is not that much different a scenario than when Tyra is audible. Tyra is impressed that Nastasia kept pushing forward even when she couldn't hear.
Kiara is next, and agrees that the falls are slippery and scary. She is metal, and has one of those in-pot fold up steamer things on the back of her head. She's very excited to shoot with Tyra and notes that this is quite important, especially since she was in the bottom two last week. Though Tyra seems to dig what Kiara is doing, Kristin has a separate commentary: "Kiara is stupid. I hate her." She thought Kiara was going to go a long time ago, which is a feeling I can share. But Kiara nails the warrior princess look, according to Tyra.
Laura is next, and of course she has all of her fears and phobias and anxieties to contend with. If she feels like a gust of wind is going to blow her off a hill when she's hiking, I imagine slippery rocks are a challenge. Tyra climbs up to where Laura is sitting to give her direction, but by her own admittance Laura is quite stiff. She tells us that if you take one wrong step you'll slide down the whole waterfall. Which, again, is not that steep, and the girls are on the bottom of it in any case. Leila notes that Laura has named her as her strongest competition, and adds that she can't always put on a happy face now that she's getting a little scared. And, in fact, Laura isn't really putting on any kind of face as the falls beat down on her head. She's petrified, and isn't having very much luck holding it all together. Tyra tells us that she was the most excited to shoot Laura, but was the most disappointed that she couldn't get all that many angles with her. Laura is tearful and frustrated that she can't go back and change the picture.
