The girls arrive at the Roxy for their photo shoot. The Dowager Jay, wearing a Xanadu-inspired puffy silver jacket, refuses to tell the girls what they'll be doing during the shoot. They are sent to hair and makeup, where they get some crazy-ass wigs and clothes along with garish face paint. Norelle interviews that she looks like a doll that is really pretty, "but if you look at it at night, you're running out of the room screaming." I know what kind of doll she's talking about. I had one of those whose head rotated and featured three different faces. That thing was fucked up. Norelle loves her look. Jay tells the girls that they'll be doing a fun, creative, and cool shoot today. He says that Kelle told him that she won the posing competition, which he finds hard to believe. Well, I find it hard to believe that he has a job that doesn't involve 1) passing out watered-down two-dollar shots that come in a test tube and 2) accepting payment for said shots in his g-string. So shut up, Jay. He tells the girls that the extra added element to the shoot is...roller skates. Tyra rolls out and says that the girls will be doing a shoot for Dooney and Bourke purses while on roller skates. They will be photographed by Mathew Jordan Smith, who did some swimsuit photos of Tyra back in the day. You can tell just by looking at him that he's going to be irritating. He does not disappoint.
Norelle is first. She wears a giant pink fro and has a hard time on the skates. Yaya is "vewy supwised" at her inability to skate, but her poses impress Jay. Toccara falls a few times, during which we see her pixilated ass. Mathew says she was just caught in the fun of it all and didn't get good shots. Jay says that Cassie forgot she was selling a bag, and was a little mediocre. And if anybody knows about mediocrity, it's Jay Manuel. Jennipher can skate okay, but generally stinks and doesn't work hard enough. There is lots of pixilation around her chest, and I'm not quite sure why. Eva has a great shoot, and also gets the funkiest background music. Nicole describes her look as "Marilyn Monroe done by Andy Warhol." Jay says that she "lucked into the shot of the century." Kelle thinks that this shoot will be her time to shine and show the judges how far she's come, but she pretty much sucks. Amanda is wearing a pink tutu ensemble, and spins around for Danilo and the makeup lady. She falls a lot, but both Jay and the photographer say that she nailed the shoot and gave them many great shots to work with. Interestingly enough, the fact that she is "completely night blind" doesn't seem to affect her performance in the dimly-lit club. I'm just saying. Ann has some bad shots with an awkwardly gaping mouth. Jay gives her a talking to and says that she sucks, and that he'd hate to see her not move on in the competition. He says that Ann responds best when someone is mean to her.
