With everyone back at Smashbox, Kelly reminds the girls that the designers each could only pick one model to book, and adds that they scored each of the girls from 1 - 10 on their performance. The score that they'll get is the combined average from all of the designers. Markus tells Kristin that the designers thought she was absolutely beautiful, but a little uptight and stiff. The designers loved Brittany's energy, but thought that her modeling skills weren't as strong as they could be. Laura was widely noted to be very statuesque, but the designers thought that her walk was stiff. The designers loved how Nastasia photographed, but weren't as sold on her in-person appearance. They enjoyed Kiara's positive energy, but she has some work to do on her walk. And Victoria displayed good manners, but the designers who were looking for someone a bit more "girl next door," e.g. with a little flesh on their bodies, didn't feel that she fit their brands. We then learned who booked which gigs: Cecilia Cassini booked Kiara, Lulu Guinness picked Nastasia, Charlotte Ronson booked Kristin, and Whitney Port booked Laura, as did Guess. With two bookings, Laura is the challenge winner. She sheds a few tears of happiness and artificial humility. Meanwhile, Brittany cries as she expresses shock and dismay that she had zero bookings. She tells us that she doesn't know what she did wrong. You didn't kiss the prince hard enough! Go try on a slipper or whistle while you work or something!
The girls head off to a fancy dinner, where Victoria is also downtrodden at having booked zero gigs. Laura tells us that Victoria "obviously does have a couple of problems going on." She too questions whether Victoria can handle the competition. As Victoria expresses confusion about why she didn't book any gigs when she performed well, Kiara tells us her theory -- it involves Kiara being awesome, and perhaps too awesome to be paired up with. And just when you thought things couldn't get worse, P'Trique shows up. He's serving a little dish called Tyra Mail: "A top model knows her best angles, so make sure you stay in line and keep a straight face." Maybe they're going to be sliced in half by giant protractors? Dare we dream?
Back at the house, the girls see their challenge scores, all of which were quite close. Laura got a 7.5, Kiara got a 7.5, Victoria got a 7.3, Brittany got a 6.7, Kristin got a 6.5, and Nastasia got a 6.5. Laura rifles through her prizes -- clothes from each of the designers. It's this particular challenge prize that always makes the non-winners lose their shit a bit. This time, it's Kristin who looks at all the clothes and delivers a death glare in Laura's direction. And no distant memories of an invitation to share in the wonders of the Tyra Suite can ease the tension!
