Tyra does not think that Jennipher really wants to be there. Jennipher flatly says she doesn't know why people think that. Tyra tells Jennipher that she needs to wear her emotion more on her sleeve, and less on her butt. Jennipher says that she took this bit of advice as, "If your personality doesn't come out, [you are] going home." Unfortunately, Jennipher's personality sucks, so it's really a lose-lose situation.
Next is Toccara. She says that she is in the competition to win, and also to break barriers by becoming the first black plus-size supermodel. Well, missy, I think Nell Carter might have something to say about that. People have not been supportive of this goal, and Tyra asks how that feels. Toccara says that she's been through a lot of negative stuff in her life, and that her parents didn't raise her. She starts to cry. Tyra tells Toccara that this is a beautiful part of her, and makes her a better person because it shows that she's three-dimensional. Toccara says, "Maybe once I get to where I want to go...maybe I can have my mommy, I can have my daddy. And then I just realized that I don't have power, like, she has to want it, my daddy has to want it. So it doesn't matter who I am or who I become...I can't make them do anything." I am so confused right now. Tyra says that Toccara's success on the show might make them want it. ["What's 'it,' Tyra? Unclear pronoun!" -- Wing Chun] While crying, Toccara says that she can't cry no more. She says she can't go right back to the same thing, which is apparently something horrible. What exactly is so bad? Did her parents abuse her? Abandon her? Hide her crystals? Tyra tells her that her tears show that it's still there and still inside. Toccara says she's toughened up because she can't do anything about it or dwell on it. And I'd tell you what the "it" was if I had any idea, but I really don't. ["My point." -- Wing Chun] Toccara is bawling. Tyra says that Toccara's eleven-year-old sister is looking up to her, and that Toccara has to use that as power. Tyra practically (but not actually, for obvious reasons) makes Toccara sit on her lap while she comforts her. She says that Toccara can't change her parents, but that she can do for her and her sister, and be an inspiration for her mother. She says that Toccara's mother will say, "I screwed up so bad, I don't know how my baby got there, but she got there. She got there." Will someone please tell me what's going on here? Man, I really wish they would let Janice do the Oprah-ing on this show. She'd be all, "My Aunt Sadie used me as a pincushion until I was fifteen. Get over it." And then we could get back to the important stuff, like how to successfully create a glamorous smoky eye.
