Grimley calls Ann "a little bit country, a little bit rock n' roll." I love that the hippest reference she can come up with is to the Osmonds. But secretly, how great would it be if the Osmonds showed up in matching sequined outfits with their big teeth on display and sang that song right now? Grimley tells Ann to mix up her wardrobe.
Toccara wants feedback on being plus-sized, and Paul says that many of the big fashion houses are cutting larger sizes ["bullshit" -- Wing Chun], and that Toccara should have a great career ahead of her.
Toccara and Yaya discuss Grimley's advice. Yaya snits that she knows that she has to have versatility in her wardrobe, but that doesn't mean that she's going to look like something she's not, or that she's not going to "represent." There's a flashback to Grimley telling her that the 'fro and African print combination might be a little much. And Grimley really might not be so culturally sensitive. Yaya says that the whole point of her style is that she doesn't want to fit in.
Paul, Hampton, and Grimley say their goodbyes. Grimley says that it was nice meeting everyone, and Paul yells, "Make millions!" Given the context of this show and the careers of past "winners," I think that should be amended to an optimistic "Make tens of dollars!" Yaya gives them a dismissive wave of her hand and says, "I don't care."
The girls eat dinner at Uncle Jack's Steak House. Ann interviews that after her success last week, she thinks she has a good chance to win as long as she keeps competing. Someone is suddenly way too confident. That someone is Ann. Tyra appears, to great squealing, and hugs everyone. Tyra takes food off of the plates for various girls and says that she is notorious for doing that. Which I guess is better than being notorious for having a failed single and video she tried to pimp on her own reality show. For example. Norelle says that she has learned so much from this experience, but wonders what the girls have gotten themselves into, and how much this will affect their lives. Tyra says that the girls are being given a unique opportunity to hear directly the harsh criticism that models get, and that even though it's hard, they should consider that kind of direct feedback a luxury. I'm sorry, but if you think that I look like I have a penis, I really wish you'd keep it to yourself. Toccara asks Tyra to comment on whether America is ready for a plus-sized supermodel. Tyra says that to her it's kind of like being a black model was forty years ago, when opportunities were much more limited. Models such as Beverly Johnson, Iman, and Naomi Sims were pioneers in the field. Toccara has a lot working against her, and so will have to work harder. To get the same amount of respect as the other girls at the table, she has to be better than they. Toccara nods. She interviews that while she won't let it break her spirit, she's working against a lot of odds and has to always be on her game and ahead of the other girls.
