And then there's Kristin. Yvonne points out that if Kristin gets eliminated she has a good shot at coming back, given her hugely positive fan response. Kristin does not want to ride through on social media, though, and is frustrated that the judges keep harping on her for relying on pretty and not doing much actual modeling. She doesn't think that they have the same connection with her as they do with all of the other girls. Part of this might be her overwhelming countenance of stankness. Kiara addresses all of America to tell us in no uncertain terms that Kristin is a beautiful girl, but a nasty-ass person. The pressure is getting to her and she's starting to crack, which could be really fun to watch.
Or, actually, not really that fun. We see Kristin go into Destiny's bag to get a lighter without asking, and Destiny tells her not to do that. We are reminded that Kristin has been suspended from school in the past due to physical and verbal altercations. We then cut to the kitchen where the argument between Kristin and Destiny continues. It involves a lot of Kristin telling Destiny to shut the fuck up, and Destiny noting that Kristin is the same bitch that she said she was in high school. Kristin replies that Destiny doesn't know her, and isn't shit to her. And then Kristin starts yelling at Destiny to hit her. This is all part of her mastermind scheme to get the other girls disqualified. You didn't know she was a MENSA member, did you? The "Ask Marilyn" column in Parade magazine will now be run by Kristin. That's what a mastermind she is! As Destiny makes an awkward fist and appears to move toward Kristin (and a nation screams "do it!"), we cut to the opening credits.
When we return, Destiny totally does not hit Kristin. In response, Kristin tells her to shut up, and Nastasia starts to laugh. She thinks Destiny is kind of a punk for not defending herself and just letting Kristin talk to her however she wants. If Nastasia were in that situation, Kristin's new makeover bangs would be in her uterus right now. Destiny tells us that everybody thinks she's tough, but she's totally not. She's just a sensitive, gentle soul who's been through some fucked up shit. Her mom kicked her out when she was 14, and she says that being pushed to different foster homes really decreases a person's self-confidence. It sucks and it hurts, but you can't change it. Oh, don't you just want to give her a hug? In contrast, I wish that social media could actually punch Kristin in the throat on Destiny's behalf. Kristin yells that if she has to piss all the other bitches off to where they hit her and get kicked out, she will. Everyone wonders bemusedly why she's such a dumb-ass.
