So, around we go. Dionne says that Renee has been negative to everyone so many times, so how are they supposed to believe her? Natasha says that Renee was even mean at casting week. Jaslene says that she thinks Renee has issues inside that she has to deal with, and that her attitude is all a front. Whitney agrees. Sarah says that Renee has a tendency to talk down to people. Jael agrees, and says that Renee says things to Whitney or Sarah that she would never say to Jael. Oooh, Renee does seem like the type to go right after the girls that she perceives as being weaker. Tyra then gives Renee the chance to respond. Renee says that she's sorry for anything that she's said to hurt or offend the other girls. She says that it's a defense mechanism, because she's been hurt by everyone she's ever loved, other than her husband and her son. Oh, wah wah. Tyra says that everyone has a story for why they are the way they are. She tells Renee that her revelation is that she has so much pain inside, and that fuels her to hurt other people. She hopes that, whether she wins or not, Renee walks away from this competition grateful that she has learned this about herself. This lesson might seem a lot more meaningful if it weren't coming from a woman who's dressed as a gypsy. Commercials.
When we return, there is Tyra Mail. One of these bitches is going home, yo. Whitney says that she doesn't want to be in the bottom two again, because she's not ready to go home. Sarah, on the phone with her mother, says that she thinks she'll definitely be in the bottom two. Her mother says that it was just one shoot, and Sarah says that girls go home for just one shoot. They're not even going to throw in a third girl saying that she's worried to make this interesting? Damn.
We are welcomed to Panel with four-faced Tyra. She's a silly/empathetic supermodel/entrepreneur. This is one of the times when you see Tyra's shots and realize what a good model looks like. The shots are great. Anyway, there are prizes, there are judges. Benny Medina is the guest judge. And also the executive producer of Tyra's talk show! Who knew, right? Benny is in his trademark white suit, with orange underneath. Why he'd want to look like Tom Wolfe is beyond me, but then again I'm not a super-manager.
Jael is up first for evaluation. Nigel likes the fact that Jael had the confidence to keep her own name, and also thinks that this shoot is her best yet. Twiggy also thinks it's good, and notes that all four looks are very strong, and that she'd like to see Jael's gentle side. Tyra gives her kudos, saying that she did really well.
