It turns out that this swimwear line celebrates the legend of Bob Marley by putting his face on ladies' boobs. I mean, I guess that's not a bad tribute. Laura shares with us that one of her biggest insecurities in the competition is not being a size 00 like some of the other skinny stick figures such as Leila and Nastasia. She's representing girls who are healthy, strong, and overly tan. And, I mean, she's SO large. Practically a size 4! Embrace the curves! Johnny tells the girls that they'll do two shots -- one in the shallow water, where they'll really get to show off their suits, and one in the deep, where the dolphins will actually push them up by their feet. Those poor, enslaved dolphins. This is better than being caught in a tuna net, but only barely. Cedella wants the girls to show off the swimsuits, but also be engaged with the dolphins, who are doubtlessly crying for help in their squeaky sonar language.
Kiara is up first, and the dolphin handler tells her to be very gentle with no sudden movements, so she doesn't scare the dolphins. For some reason Kiara equates high fashion with Sports Illustrated, but at least knows enough about modeling to try to find her light. She then goes to the deeper part of the cove, where she treads water while waiting for the dolphins to push her up by her feet. The idea is to pose in the split second when you rise up out of the water, and though Kiara doesn't get up very high Johnny thinks she looked pretty. Cedella doesn't look so certain. Nastasia is next. She poses with the dolphin in the shallow end just fine, but as she bounds away one of the handlers asks the girls to, in the future, wait until she takes the dolphin away before they move. Everyone is VERY concerned about startling the dolphins, which we should take as meaningful foreshadowing. Nastasia gets good height from the dolphins, and freaks out for a second before remember that she's supposed to pose.
Leila is next, and as Johnny gives her direction on how to adjust the fringe on her suit, her dolphin gets spooked and kind of does a side flip in the water, banging up her leg in the process. Leila grimaces in pain, as Kristin secretly hopes that she's lost her leg entirely. And then Leila is kind of a wuss about the whole incident. I mean, I'm sure it hurt, but the dolphin hit her thigh -- it doesn't seem like there's danger of a bone being broken or anything. Leila wonders if she's well enough to stay and finish the shoot or if she's seriously injured and needs to seek medical attention. Tyra has been hit with bowling balls in her thighs, and she smized right through it! Buck up, skinny. Everyone gets out of the water and a medic takes a look at Leila's leg. He ices it for, like, two minutes and then she's fine. Leila gets back in the water and takes a killer shot with the dolphin. Laura of course thinks that Leila's poses were boring, and says that all she gave was high fashion. That's what they asked for! Though Leila's first pass at being lifted by the dolphins doesn't go so well, she kills the second one like a posing machine. Johnny heaps praise on her, which of course Kristin thinks is annoying.
