Tyra loves Megg's hair, despite the fact that the weave is looking ratty. Of her photo, Nigel tells Megg that she needs to watch her underbite. Tyra says that the minute Megg relaxes, she turns into a normal girl and needs to pull the model out.
Tyra notes that Caridee has wet hair, and Nigel basically tells her that she looks a mess. She really needs some styling help. Miss J. tells Caridee not to lose her neck. Nigel says that she looks a little mannish in the photo, and that she has to watch her strong jaw, which can make her appear a little drag. Miss J. says, "Drag on, girl, drag on," and Caridee laughs.
Next is Eugena. Twiggy says that she looks masculine. Tyra says that photo was the only one in which Eugena gave anything. Tracy says that she gave Eugena so much direction, to no avail, because Eugena thinks she already knows everything. Tyra basically tells Eugena that she ain't all that and needs to eat some humble pie. Doused in Proactiv, I would add.
Michelle's photo is now and contemporary, and she really nailed it, according to Nigel. Tyra notes that Michelle had a lot of photos to choose from, which is great.
Tyra compliments Amanda on her giant elfin ears. No, I am serious. Amanda's shot is also stellar, and Tracy notes that Amanda has been practicing and knows her angles.
I think that Brooke's photo is terrible, but the judges love it. Nigel worries that she's too cutesy in person, but looking at her photo, he has faith. Argh.
I think that Megan's photo is pretty, but no one on the panel likes it. Miss J. says that she has no neck. Nigel says that it's the weakest of the bunch, and Tyra says that Megan seems to have gotten lost with the hair. ["Yeah, that's what happens when your hair has moving parts." -- Wing Chun]
Next is A.J., and Twiggy likes that her new look takes away her "gothy thing." A.J. once again smirks. Twiggy says that her photo is very peculiar, but I think she means it as a compliment. Tyra says that her body looks great, but that her nose looks big.
Next is Monique. Nigel likes the picture, but not Monique in it. Tyra notes that Mr. Jay said that Monique's shoot was a huge improvement from the first one, which in all fairness wasn't that hard since Monique sucked on the first shoot.
The girls leave as the judges deliberate. Twiggy thinks Michelle is one of the strong ones, and Tyra agrees that she knows what she's doing. Tracy loves Amanda. Twiggy thinks that Michelle is stronger, but as a pair, the twins are very distinctive. Nigel says that Eugena is never going to make it with her amateur modeling. Tracy says that she wouldn't take direction, but Tyra says that she does have potential. Miss J. says that Brooke looks like a cute cheerleader, but not a model. Twiggy bemoans Megg's terrible posture, but Tyra says that she's really struggling and trying. Nigel says that A.J. has the awkwardness, birdlike qualities, and great skin that fashion people love. Miss J. wants A.J. to want it more. Tyra says that Jaeda gets lost if she has anything to distract her, and Tracy agrees that shooting Jaeda was painful. Miss J. says that Megan is boring. Nigel says that she has a great body and bone structure, but that her picture is bad. Twiggy agrees. Anchal is serving it. Miss J. loves Melrose's makeover and body language, and Nigel says that Melrose has done a 180 and is now up and together. Miss J. thought that Monique was beautiful when he saw her, but that her photos aren't doing it for him. Nigel agrees. Nigel thinks that Caridee looks quite drag, which could be a problem. Tyra says that she loves Caridee looking like a drag queen, and Miss J. does a little "Well, look who's talking" kind of thing that Tyra seems oblivious to.
