It is time for the individual evaluations of the girls' performances on the runway. Nigel was floored by Nicole, but Miss J. says that she doesn't know what to do with her hands and tends to slouch a bit. Twiggy says that when Nicole came out, Twiggy didn't recognize her, because she looked strong and strutting rather than her usual romantic and soft. Tyra was a very proud mama, but would like to see Nicole look a bit more pissed. Twiggy says that Nik looked amazing, but that the walk was a little bit bouncy. Tyra says that she agrees, and that the walk took away from the strong high-fashion effect. Nigel says that Nik looks incredible, but that the jiggly walk was not a fashion walk. Miss J. just says, "It was a bad walk." Nik knows she's screwed. Tyra says that it reminded her of her era, when girls had a signature walk. A bad signature walk.
It is then time to review the girls' portfolios, both of which are impressive. We see superheroes, country couture, and the fashion witch. Upon the girls' Vargas shots, Tyra says that Nicole has a booty like a black girl, and Nik says "I'm jealous" in such a cute way. I, too, have developed quite the booty, which my co-workers Miriam and Tyanne spare no opportunity of mentioning to me. Both Nik and Nicole have superb photos from Tyra's black and white shoot, and have successfully mastered communicating with their eyes. Then there was The Wild Boyz, Bollywood, and the Cover Girl shoot. Tyra says that both girls managed to be commercial but modelesque on that shot, which was impressive.
Tyra gives the girls one last chance to say why they should be America's Next Top Model. Nicole is grateful, and has grown to be bigger than she knew. Nik says that she'll be happy no matter what happens. Nik is crying, like she knows she's already lost. Oh, I've never been so sad to see a dream crushed! No, I mean really. I'm normally very dead inside.
