Jay tells the girls that they're going to look like ethereal nymphs, so they'll have extra-long hair and, um, nymph-like makeup. Tyra tells the makeup folks to use waterproof mascara, of course, because the girls will be floating in the pool. The makeup artists are all like, "DO WE TELL YOU HOW NOT TO HAVE DEAD EYES?"
Eugena and Melrose head out to the pool first, and Tyra tells them that the secret to floating is having an arched back. I'm sure Tyra's enormous Joe E. Tatas help her as well. The girls get into the pool and note that the water is cold. Tyra says that models shoot Sports Illustrated while lying in the snow. She then adds, "I didn't do it, but the other models did." She sucks, man. ["And, okay, Tyra pointed out that models shoot bathing suits in the winter and parkas in the summer -- fair enough -- but you know they take the models to the Caribbean to shoot them. And furthermore, they're not shooting this in the winter. Everyone outside the pool is in shorts. They obviously threw a bunch of ice in the pool before the girls showed up." -- Wing Chun] Eugena interviews that the pool is freezing, like ice water. Jay notes with a laugh that Eugena's jaw is chattering. Photographer David Ruiz confers with Tyra about some poses for the girls. And then it's time to go. Eugena is not so much of a floater. She's also chattering like mad. Jay, relegated to the role of doing nothing (which...well, that is pretty much his normal role), says, "You know, it's interesting...don't these two girls hate each other?" Hmm, someone's been watching the footage.
Some tension-filled music plays as Tyra tries to direct the girls. David says that Melrose was great, and worked in the water with a special, soft face. And really, Melrose can float. Eugena, on the other hand, hopes that she didn't look like a dead fish in the cold water. Unfortunately, she did. Jay calls today a typical Eugena shoot -- flat, boring, and looking like she's drowning in the water. Relax, Eugena fans, this is just to throw us off the track. Eugena interviews that she was sinking and chattering and just couldn't control herself. Melrose says that she was freezing and shivering but trying not to complain about it: "We're competing here." Eugena and Melrose lie on the ground in the sun and try to warm up, and warn Amanda about what's coming. Amanda says that she knows it's going to be hard, because she's a baby about cold water. Eugena says that she never wants to do that ever again.
