Allow me to start with some breaking news: Victoria still misses her mom! She would totally take her mom in the Tyra Suite with her as prize for having best photo last week, but since that isn't possible she picks no one to share in her glory with her. No one! She is hard core, and also completely lacking social skills. In other breaking news, Kristin is a nasty hag and no one likes her. Except for me, upon occasion. There's a whole thing where Kristin goes into Destiny's purse without her permission, and the two get into a verbal altercation. Kristin berates Destiny and tries to goad her into getting physical, but it turns out that Destiny is more of a lover than a fighter. Nastasia thinks Destiny is kind of a punk for not defending herself, but I sort of give her credit for not engaging. While all this is going on, I think Victoria is locked up cozily in the Tyra Suite, luxuriating in her Snuggie or something.
This is acting challenge week, and our special thespian guest is none other than Tyler Perry. And he's not even dressed up as a fat old lady! Special times. For their challenge, each girl chooses a flag with one of four characters on it, and then they are instructed to go around harassing innocent pedestrians. The more of an idiot you are, the more points you get. I think Destiny does a serviceable job as a clueless tourist, but Tyler and Tyra give her only middling marks. Victoria is a delusional wannabe diva, with a British accent. That last part is totally an actorly choice. She is super crazy and actually goes after someone and tries to accost him with fried chicken. Please tell me I wasn't the only viewer mumbling, "Please don't let it be a black person. Please don't let it be a black person." In any case, that dude does not want chicken and actually throws it all over Victoria. She loves this, because she is a performance artist. In the end, Kiara wins for her portrayal of a delusional wannabe diva, which as we all know is a real stretch, and gets a walk-on part in a Tyler Perry film.
For this week's photo shoot, the girls go on the set of War of the Worlds and pose as zombies. There is serious flesh wound makeup, which you think would really suit Victoria. Despite being the most naturally zombie-esque, she's only so-so as a model. Laura continues her trend of solid consistency, and gets best photo of the week and the highest social media score in the competition thus far. Kristin comes on set with her typically nasty attitude, and Johnny is not feeling it. Per usual she is too pretty for her own good, and won't even make zombie noises when instructed to. I really thought Kristin was a goner, but she doesn't even land in the bottom two. Instead, Destiny and Yvonne face off. Yvonne isn't embracing her curves, while it appears that modeling just kind of stresses Destiny out. In the end, Yvonne gets at least one more week to complain about how everyone loves her ass, and Destiny is sent home, which for her at this point is apparently a street corner or something.
Previously: Social media mania! Do YOU trust you to judge even the least relevant of reality shows? And when are we going to see a fan video submitted by Janice Dickinson?
We enter with the models heading home to see Victoria's best-of-week photo displayed as digital art. She is really impressed that all the fans out there were willing to vote for someone with a different background and heritage. And yes, she means that she has "the Jewish" and "the Native American." Like a one-woman melting pot, that one! Always boiling over! Liberty University's newfound emphasis on cultural competence is clearly working! Victoria tells the other girls that when Tyra called her name, all she could think about was her mom. Allyssa looks at her like she's a crazy dingbat, and then interviews that Victoria is attached to her mom's [beep]. WHAT COULD THAT BEEP BE? I mean, one of two things, really. Technically three. Now, to continue to be attached to her mother's [beep] in private, Victoria totally would have chosen her mom to share the Tyra Suite with her. Since she's not there, however, Victoria is choosing...no one. Cold as ice! As Victoria starts to dig through the clothes and shoes and makeup in the Tyra Suite, Kiara tells us that she's unsurprised about Victoria's solo trip there, given the fact that she is balls-to-the-wall socially retarded. Go to real school, says Kiara, and you too can get the normalizing social skills that Victoria lacks!
Back in the kitchen, Leila fears that Victoria will make the rest of the models scrub the floor with toothbrushes or something. Or maybe she will make them braid her hair until they have repetitive stress injuries, all the while regaling them with stories about the Yahtzee tournaments she and her mom would have as part of her home school statistics class. Apparently the person in the Tyra Suite is also called the "president," which is something the whole crew must have thought better of in postproduction since we've heard nothing about it until now. We are reminded that Darian was sent home last week, which is sad because she was one of the girls who yelled a lot and stuff. Yvonne is happy that it's Darian who's gone, though, because this means she was spared and will live on for another week. She is grateful for the fans out there who pulled her through by the narrowest of margins, which is technically like one fan, and says that she's going to try her best to redeem herself this week.
