Eleven models stand before Tyra, but she only has ten photos in her hands. And these go to: Jenah and her funky weave, Sarah, Heather, Lisa, Janet Minnelli, Ambreal, Ebony, Bianca, and Chantal. This of course leaves Saleisha, who was never going to be in the bottom two, and Victoria. The judges love Victoria's atypical beauty, but not so much the prickly shade she's always throwing. Saleisha has captured the judges' interest after her makeover, but her pictures are just okay. But nonetheless, she gets another chance, and Victoria gets the prickly shaft. She immediately takes off her high heels and gives a big hug to Saleisha and Tyra. Tyra tells her that it's important to listen to what seasoned people have to say without talking back. Unless they are seasoned with nutmeg, in which case you can give them as much attitude as you want.
Victoria is happy to be coming to the end of her association with high-heeled shoes, makeup, and people messing with her hair. She says she's gained an appreciation for modeling and high fashion that she didn't have before. She recognizes that modeling is more than just sitting around and looking pretty. At the end of the day, she says, it's what's in your heart that counts, and her heart isn't in this. She'd rather go home than take some other girl's dream. That's fair, and not at all prickly.
