Evaluations. Jaeda is first. Tyra doesn't think Jaeda's pose is working, but Twiggy says that she wants the outfit, so the shot works for her. Tyra just hates Jaeda.
Amanda was no good with the fruit bowl, but her runway photo shot is great.
The judges think Michelle didn't care about the fruit-bowl challenge. Perhaps this is why I relate to her so much. Her photo is f-i-e-r-c-e, but Twiggy notes that she is ungainly in person, to the point of making Twiggy a little uncomfortable. Gangly people always give me the willies, too.
Twiggy loves Megg's personality, and Miss J. imitates her signature, "Rock n' roll!" scream. Megg's photo is a little funny in the mouth.
Caridee messed up a lot with the fruit, but she had fun with it, which indicated that she cared. Tyra asks her why she's so connected to a Pollyanna look, and Caridee does some quick hair work before saying, "I smell what you're stepping in." Is this some weird Midwestern saying generated from an overabundance of cow dung? Yikes. Caridee has one eye closed in her photo, but Tyra loves the shot and compares her to Karolina Kurkova. Tyra tells her to balance having fun on the runway with selling the clothes. Of course, this brings us all back to Tyra, who had fun on the runway while still being mindful of the clothes, and thus continued her streak of being the best, once again, as always, and forever.
Monique is next, and Twiggy calls her vacant. The British have trouble recognizing crazy eyes. Monique says that she's really sick and weak, and Nigel tells her to get a better game face. No sympathy! Yes! Tyra tells her that the fashion industry doesn't care if she's sick. You know who else doesn't care? The world. Unless Monique has the bird flu, in which case we should all fear for our lives. Tyra notes that Monique didn't do the photo shoot, which is a big part of the judges' evaluation, but that they'll take into account her previous photos, challenges, overall performance, and potential. Monique tells the panel that she really wants to be there, and that she feels she has the potential to be a top model. In vain! In vain!
