And for the fourth week in a row, Toccara is the Cover Girl of the week. Oh, the irony.
Tyra mail! Nicole grabs the message, and Ann and Eva come up with the ingenious idea of playing a practical joke on the house and reading a fake Tyra Mail. I mean, come on, that's awesome. Nicole reads, "Pack your bags. You have twenty minutes...to be in EUROPE!" Nicole and Ann start squealing for realistic effect. Amanda jumps off the phone. Toccara looks at Nicole incredulously. Norelle claps with glee. Toccara then tries to grab the Tyra Mail from Nicole to look at it, and Nicole confesses that it was all a lie. Toccara says, "You lyin'. You're a ho." Models, you've been punk'd! Without the irritating trucker hat! Ha ha ha. Eva and Ann have a good laugh. Eva interviews that the whole house was pissed. I'm sorry, but the only thing wrong about this joke was that it didn't go on nearly long enough. Unsurprisingly, Yaya is not amused. She says, "Like, seriously, coming into this competition I did not realize that I was gonna feel like I was in junior high school." Oh, can it, Catherine Zit-a Jones. Ann says that she's going to throw up from laughing so much. Eva puts on a serious face and interviews, "No one wants to have fun around here." I am always with Eva.
The real Tyra Mail reads, "Get ready for a twenty-first-century red carpet ride." Oooh, mysterious! Actually, not at all. The girls go to the department store Century 21, which sells designer clothes on the cheap. There, they encounter Grimley. Oh, fucking Grimley. If only this were the last time that we see you and your increasingly hideous outfits and accessories. I don't even know how to describe her earrings. They kind of look like really long, red pieces of beef jerky. Or, like, the weird pieces of meat that float around in wonton soup. But longer. And I'm not at all sure that "unidentifiable meat products" is a good look for anyone, but then again, I'm not the professional. Grimley tells them that their challenge is to put together a head-to-toe look for a daytime event in fifteen minutes. Toccara interviews that she was ready to have a field day amongst all of the designer bargains. Grimley clicks her stopwatch and yells, "Go!" Pandemonium! The girls strip down and pull kind of heinous-looking clothes off of the overcrowded racks. Ann interviews that Grimley told her that she needed dressier clothes, and that's what she's focusing on. Yaya confessionalizes that she took her conversation with Grimley as "just that, a conversation," and that she doesn't need to compromise who she is to be successful. Or as she says, she's been successful without compromising who she is. Oh, whatever. You can graduate from an Ivy League school and still be a total dumb-ass. You can even be a re-elected dumb-ass. Toccara interviews that it was a struggle to find her size in Century 21. She says that she didn't want to blow off the competition, but that it was kind of a downer. You know, I was not surprised when Kelle was stripped of her last ounce of confidence and spirit, but to see Toccara in such a state is really disheartening. Grimley says that Toccara was kind of slow in the challenge. She says it in such a way that you know she thinks it was because Toccara is fat. I hate her.
