Tyra tells the girls that they are all special, but that everyone has an "interesting" flaw. She says it is their job to make the public think that they are perfect, even though in reality, no one is perfect. This has been one to grow on. She asks the girls to name their imperfection of choice. Ann has a bumpy nose. Yaya has a bad complexion. Jennipher has a big booty. Toccara says that her thighs rub together, and that during her interview in the finals, they actually got stuck. That sounds so gross. Leah says that she can have a common look. Tyra tells Leah that her forehead saves her. When Tyra was in school, she was mocked and maligned for her "five-head," but her modeling agent told her that her giant forehead would be the thing that would "get her over." And I'm sure that everybody was so entranced by her glamorous forehead that they didn't even notice her stick body featuring giant boobs. Norelle hates her ears.
And now, it is Kelle's turn. Kelle says that she has a protruding mouth, particularly when you look at her profile. She then says that she's always felt it looks like a monkey mouth. Hoo boy. Sound of record scratching. Toccara interviews that she couldn't believe it. An interviewed Kelle says that it was the first thing that popped into her head, "and...whatever." Kelle adds that she thinks it looks primitive. An interviewed Yaya is incredulous. Tyra says that they'll have to take some profile shots and analyze it, but that it might not be all bad. She then says that she might be all "Go Curious George! Work it out!" Okay, Tyra can really be kind of funny sometimes.
You know, there's been some heated debate in the forums about Kelle. And I have to say that I think we're all overanalyzing a bit. To me, the problem is not so much the fact that she might have some issues with internalized racism, or the fact that she is a bit of a snob, or the fact that she is culturally insensitive. I mean, she seems like a really nice girl. But dumb as a pile of bricks. Seriously, when God was handing out brains, Kelle thought he said "trains," and was like, "Oh, um, like, we have a driver and stuff, so I think I'm all set. But thanks!"
