We finally get back to the pool photo. It's great. Twiggy says that it's lovely, and looks like it's from a high-fashion magazine. Nigel says that Amanda has a great face, but that he still feels like she's "just there." Oh, please. Her face is the best out of all of them. Tyra says that she was impressed with Amanda, because she didn't know how to float, but then took a couple of notes and became "someone who knew how to float." To achieve such a high level of proficiency in just minutes really is a feat of which we should all be in awe. Amanda's issue, however, is her scarecrow-like hands and elbows. This is true. She's all right angles. David tells her to control her body. Tyra says that she was impressed with Caridee, because she didn't stop floating. Even when she was shivering, she never looked cold in the photos. Nigel asks how the pool was for Caridee, and she says that it was really cold and her body was kind of freaking out, but when it came time to take the pictures, she wasn't cold. Tyra says that's great, but as a model you have to know your limits and step away from the situation if needed. Unless you're sick during a photo shoot and decide to opt out of it, in which case you're not trying hard. I mean, not that we don't expect her to be a bundle of contradictions, but man. Miss J. just says, "You'd never know it," meaning that Caridee has done a good job.
The judges deliberate. Melrose seems to be able to do no wrong, according to Nigel, but there's something about her that irks him. Tyra mentions the hateful beret (if only they knew that she wore it EVERY DAY and IN THE HOT TUB), and Nigel says it's like she's trying too hard. She knows what she's meant to say and do, but there's a question about whether she's natural. Twiggy says that she's continually delivered great photographs, even if she doesn't have as unique a look as Amanda. Tyra says that it was shocking how well Melrose did in the pool. She tried to impress Tyra, and she succeeded. Twiggy says that Eugena's tendency to withdraw still worries her. David thinks that she's elegant and beautiful. Tyra says that she struggled with Eugena at the photo shoot, because she gives up, almost like she doesn't care. Tyra says that Eugena is still there because of her potential, not her performance. Caridee's photo is great, even amidst the hypothermia. Nigel says that he's nervous about her, because she seems high-maintenance and like she needs a lot of attention. Top models get that, but when you're just becoming a top model, you're S.O.L. Miss J. drones, "Me me me me me me me," which either means that he agrees or that he wants to bring the attention back to himself. Amanda has no coordination, but the camera loves her, according to Twiggy. She also looks very new. Nigel says that she has an inspirational face, and that it's the face of fashion today. Twiggy says that she doesn't look like anybody else. Um, she looks like Michelle. Nigel says that Amanda's body is a disaster. Twiggy wants to pick just Amanda's head. David thinks that Amanda needs to know her body, and that she's too young. Tyra mimics, "'Too jung,'" because foreigners talk funny.
