Evaluations. Joanie was a bit bland according to Miss J., and Nigel tells her that she needs to deliver her lines, and not just say them. Tyra was upset that nothing Joanie said was original. Nigel says that she'll be known as a bumper-sticker model. "My other car is a snaggletooth." Her mermaid photo, however, gets raves. Tyra brings up the coffee thing, and says that part of the reason Joanie was nauseated might have been because she was the only model who was totally upside down. She gets kudos.
Twiggy says that Jade contradicted herself by saying "What you see is what you get," and then, "Don't judge a book by its cover." Jade's laughing, probably as she is thinking, "I never thought I was contraditionalistic [sic]." Twiggy laughs, because she feels safe commenting on Jade's idiocy with witnesses in the room. Nigel asks whether "proportionable" is even a word. Miss J. says that he's her biggest fan, but that her appearance -- with the head thing, earrings, and heavy eye makeup -- is bad, and Tyra agrees that they make her look older. Even so, Tyra thought her performance was good in that she stood out. The body angle of Jade's photo gets raves from Twiggy, as does her sensuality. The guest photographer also thinks Jade did well, and says that she could be a top model if she came to Thailand. By all means, take her!
Miss J. says that Nnenna sounded too Miss America-ish. He really hates her. Nigel says that she went on and on and on...and on...and on. Everyone agrees that she was boring. Nnenna says a bit defiantly that she thought they were supposed to sell themselves. Tyra says that Nnenna was selling, but the judges weren't buying. Oooh, stick an orange tag on it and put it in the discount rack! Nnenna's photo is pretty, according to Nigel, but she doesn't look like a mermaid. Nnenna agrees that she needed to transform more. Nigel says that she needs to bring something different to the competition at this stage. Tyra brings up Nnenna's challenge win, and notes that George Wayne said she had a strong, smart, and aware presence, but that she was also a bit snobbish and not charming. Miss J. makes fun of her staid manner of speaking, and says something about her thinking she's an African queen and that she knows better than the rest of them. Nnenna says that she doesn't know where he got that from, and Miss J. sarcastically says, "You're misunderstood, like Jade is sometimes." Ooh, burned like toast, right there.
