Diana is "gummy bears," and Jay tells her to suck it in. But gummy bears have those cute and delicious potbellies! He notes that she's really insecure about what to do with her body. He says that Diana needs some mirror time for sure. Diana interviews that she's not the size of Jaslene. And thank God, because that toothpick is freakish-looking. Thus, she says, she's not that comfortable with nudity. We have a brief interlude of Jay dancing around with a big plastic scoop of ice cream, like a really dedicated showgirl stuck in the freezer.
Renee is next, as a candy necklace, and for once she actually seems to do well. Jay gives her a fair amount of praise and says that this is better for her.
Whitney is next as a chocolate kiss. Jay says that her body looks great, but that her face needs to be more graceful. He tells her that she has a great shape, and to work it. Whitney thinks she's hot as a little chocolate goddess. I love how she's so confident.
Next is Jael, as "birthday cake." She just seems kind of...sweaty, or something. Like, maybe it's the leftover bit of cake that's been in the trash for a while. The photographer seems to like what she's doing, and Jay says that she looks like she's having fun. Cassandra says that Jael is hurting inside, but is masking it and making it out like everything is a joke. She says that Jael is doing a great job. Afterward, Jaslene tells Jael that she rocks.
Felicia is next as a non-sweaty-looking lollipop. Jay loves her body, but the face isn't quite up to par. He wants a little more expression.
Then there is Jaslene as "dulce de leche." She says that she felt very sensual. She knows that she can give a good picture, but notes that Tyra said she wanted to see more of Jaslene's personality. In other words: where is that crazy fucker that we rejected in Cycle 7? Jaslene hopes that she's shining through and showing the judges that she belongs there. She finishes her shoot, and then someone eats a big helping of rocky road out of the cleft in her chin.
Natasha is next as "gumballs." Jay says that the whole thing looks very burlesque. He was thrilled to see Natasha improve this week, because he thinks that there's a model inside of her. And then a littler model inside of that model, and a littler model inside of that model, and so on until the little thimble-sized model at the very middle. Sarah says that Natasha looks like Kate Moss, and Renee snits, "No, she doesn't, do you know who Kate Moss is?" Oh, Rancid Renee, on the prowl again. Natasha says that the shoot was hard for her, but that she did well, and so she is proud. She's growing on me.
